What causes indoor air pollution?

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

This includes:

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

Though they are often more efficient, newer homes don’t ventilate the way older homes do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and exterior air out. This offers better 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 advised. Ventilation systems replace dirty interior air for fresher exterior air without compromising energy savings.
