What causes indoor air pollution?

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

This includes:

  • Chemicals in [flooring, furniture and drapery that let off fumes
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are often more efficient, updated homes don’t breathe the way older residences do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep interior air in and exterior air out. This provides better energy savings, but the limited exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger contaminants increasing inside your home.

When this happens, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems replace dirty inside air for fresher exterior air without sacrificing energy savings.
