What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common things may create bad indoor air quality in your Fort Worth home.

This includes:

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

Though they are often more efficient, newer homes don’t have fresh air the way older residences do. Snug weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and outside air out. This provides higher energy savings, but the limited exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create pollutants building up inside.

When this happens, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems exchange polluted inside air for cleaner outdoor air without sacrificing energy savings.
