What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily things may cause poor indoor air quality in your Kansas City home.

This includes:

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

Though they are usually more efficient, updated homes don’t have fresh air the way older homes do. Snug weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and exterior air out. This gives higher energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create pollutants increasing inside your home.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems exchange contaminated inside air for fresher exterior air without giving up energy savings.
