What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common things may create inferior indoor air quality in your Fort Myers home.

This includes:

  • Substances in [carpet, furniture and window treatments that let off fumes
  • Cleaning supplies
  • 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 gives more energy savings, but the limited exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create particles accumulating inside your home.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems replace dirty indoor air for more breathable exterior air without sacrificing energy savings.
