What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common products may contribute to bad indoor air quality in your Birmingham home.

This includes:

  • Chemicals in [carpeting, furniture and drapery that give off fumes
  • Cleaning sprays
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are often more efficient, modern homes don’t ventilate 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 decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create pollutants building up inside your home.

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