What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily things may contribute to poor indoor air quality in your Kitchener house.

This includes:

  • Compounds in [carpeting, furniture and drapes that give off fumes
  • Cleaning products
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are usually more efficient, modern homes don’t have fresh air the way older homes do. Snug weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and exterior air out. This gives higher energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create pollutants building up inside your home.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems replace contaminated inside air for cleaner exterior air without compromising energy savings.
