What causes indoor air pollution?

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

This includes:

  • Chemicals in [carpet, furniture and drapery that give off fumes
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are often more efficient, modern homes don’t have fresh air the way older houses do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and outside air out. This offers better energy savings, but the limited exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create pollutants increasing inside your home.

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