What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common things may cause bad indoor air quality in your Pierre residence.

This includes:

  • Chemicals in [carpeting, furniture and drapery that let off fumes
  • Cleaning products
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

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

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