What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common products may create inferior indoor air quality in your Raleigh residence.

This includes:

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

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

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is suggested. Ventilation systems swap out polluted interior air for cleaner outdoor air without sacrificing energy savings.
