What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily products may cause bad indoor air quality in your Pierre house.

This includes:

  • Substances in [flooring, furniture and drapery that let off fumes
  • Cleaning sprays
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are typically more efficient, updated homes don’t breathe the way older homes do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and outdoor air out. This provides increased energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger contaminants increasing indoors.

When this occurs, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems swap out contaminated inside air for more breathable outdoor air without sacrificing energy savings.
