What causes indoor air pollution?

Many everyday items may cause inferior indoor air quality in your Miami house.

This includes:

  • Substances in [flooring, furniture and window treatments that emit fumes
  • Cleaning sprays
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are usually more efficient, updated homes don’t have fresh air the way older houses do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and exterior air out. This provides higher energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause particles increasing inside.

When this occurs, a whole-house ventilation system is suggested. Ventilation systems exchange contaminated inside air for fresher exterior air without giving up energy savings.
