What causes indoor air pollution?

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

This includes:

  • Substances in [carpeting, furniture and window treatments that emit fumes
  • Cleaning products
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are often more efficient, updated homes don’t have fresh air the way older homes do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and outdoor air out. This gives more energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create contaminants building up inside.

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