What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily items may contribute to bad indoor air quality in your Niagara Falls home.

This includes:

  • Compounds in carpet, furniture and drapes that emit fumes
  • Cleaning sprays
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are typically 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 offers increased energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause contaminants building up inside your home.

When this occurs, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems replace dirty inside air for fresher outside air without giving up energy savings.
