What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common items may contribute to poor indoor air quality in your Jacksonville residence.

This includes:

  • Compounds in [carpeting, furniture and drapery that give off fumes
  • Cleaning sprays
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are often more efficient, newer homes don’t have fresh air the way older homes do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and outside air out. This offers more energy savings, but the limited exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause pollutants accumulating indoors.

When this happens, a whole-house ventilation system is suggested. Ventilation systems replace contaminated inside air for fresher exterior air without compromising energy savings.
