What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common things may create 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 typically more efficient, newer homes don’t ventilate the way older homes do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep interior 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 your home.

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