What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily products may cause poor indoor air quality in your Charlotte house.

This includes:

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

Though they are typically 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 offers more energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause contaminants building up inside your home.

When this occurs, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems swap out dirty inside air for cleaner outside air without giving up energy savings.
