What causes indoor air pollution?

Many everyday items may contribute to poor indoor air quality in your Albany 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 typically more efficient, modern homes don’t have fresh air the way older houses do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and exterior air out. This offers more energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create particles accumulating inside.

When this occurs, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems replace dirty indoor air for fresher outdoor air without giving up energy savings.
