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, modern homes don’t breathe the way older houses do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep interior air in and outdoor air out. This provides better energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create pollutants accumulating inside your home.

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