What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily products may cause inferior indoor air quality in your Hurricane house.

This includes:

  • Compounds in [carpet, furniture and drapes that emit fumes
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are often more efficient, newer homes don’t ventilate the way older homes do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and outdoor air out. This offers better energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause contaminants building up inside.

When this happens, a whole-house ventilation system is suggested. Ventilation systems exchange polluted indoor air for fresher exterior air without giving up energy savings.
