What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily products may create bad indoor air quality in your Raleigh residence.

This includes:

  • Substances in [carpet, furniture and drapery that emit fumes
  • Cleaning sprays
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are usually more efficient, modern homes don’t breathe the way older homes do. Snug weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and exterior air out. This offers better energy savings, but the limited exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create particles building up inside.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems replace polluted inside air for fresher outdoor air without sacrificing energy savings.
