What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common products may cause poor indoor air quality in your Fort Worth home.

This includes:

  • Substances in [flooring, furniture and window treatments that give off fumes
  • Cleaning products
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

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

When this occurs, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems exchange dirty inside air for fresher exterior air without sacrificing energy savings.
