What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily things may create poor indoor air quality in your Rochester residence.

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 houses do. Snug 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 particles increasing inside your home.

When this occurs, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems replace polluted interior air for cleaner outside air without compromising energy savings.
