What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily products 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 ventilate the way older homes do. Snug weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and outside air out. This gives higher energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create pollutants building up inside.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems replace contaminated interior air for cleaner outside air without giving up energy savings.
