What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common items may contribute to bad indoor air quality in your East Syracuse home.

This includes:

  • Substances in [carpet, furniture and drapery that let 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 residences do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and outdoor air out. This gives more energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger pollutants increasing inside your home.

When this happens, a whole-house ventilation system is suggested. Ventilation systems swap out dirty inside air for more breathable outside air without sacrificing energy savings.
