What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily things may contribute to inferior indoor air quality in your Memphis home.

This includes:

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

Though they are often more efficient, newer homes don’t ventilate the way older houses do. Snug weather stripping and storm doors keep interior air in and outside air out. This provides higher energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger contaminants increasing inside your home.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems exchange polluted inside air for cleaner outdoor air without sacrificing energy savings.
