What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common things may create poor indoor air quality in your Rochester house.

This includes:

  • Chemicals in [flooring, furniture and drapery that emit fumes
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are typically more efficient, newer homes don’t breathe the way older residences do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and exterior air out. This provides higher energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger pollutants increasing inside.

When this happens, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems swap out polluted interior air for cleaner exterior air without compromising energy savings.
