What causes indoor air pollution?

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

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 often more efficient, modern homes don’t breathe the way older homes do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and outside air out. This gives more energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger pollutants building up indoors.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems exchange polluted interior air for more breathable outside air without giving up energy savings.
