What causes indoor air pollution?

Many everyday items may cause bad indoor air quality in your Austin house.

This includes:

  • Compounds in [carpeting, furniture and drapery that let off fumes
  • Cleaning products
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are often more efficient, modern homes don’t ventilate the way older residences do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and outside air out. This provides more energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create contaminants increasing inside your home.

When this occurs, a whole-house ventilation system is suggested. Ventilation systems replace polluted inside air for more breathable outside air without giving up energy savings.
