What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common products may cause poor indoor air quality in your Kansas City home.

This includes:

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

Though they are usually more efficient, updated homes don’t ventilate the way older homes do. Snug weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and outside air out. This gives higher energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause pollutants accumulating inside.

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