What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily products may cause poor indoor air quality in your Waldorf home.

This includes:

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

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

When this occurs, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems exchange polluted inside air for more breathable outside air without sacrificing energy savings.
