What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common products may cause bad indoor air quality in your Houston home.

This includes:

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

Though they are usually more efficient, newer homes don’t breathe the way older residences do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and outside air out. This provides better energy savings, but the limited exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger particles building up inside your home.

When this happens, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems swap out contaminated indoor air for cleaner outdoor air without sacrificing energy savings.
