What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common things may cause bad indoor air quality in your Hillsborough residence.

This includes:

  • Compounds in [flooring, furniture and drapery that let off fumes
  • Cleaning products
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are typically more efficient, modern homes don’t breathe the way older homes do. Snug weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and outside air out. This provides higher energy savings, but the limited exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger particles increasing inside your home.

When this occurs, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems replace polluted interior air for more breathable exterior air without compromising energy savings.
