What causes indoor air pollution?

Many everyday items may cause bad indoor air quality in your Miami residence.

This includes:

  • Substances in [carpeting, furniture and window treatments that emit fumes
  • Cleaning products
  • 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 outside air out. This provides higher energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create particles accumulating inside.

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