What causes indoor air pollution?

Many everyday products may contribute to poor indoor air quality in your Denver home.

This includes:

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

Though they are typically more efficient, newer homes don’t ventilate the way older homes 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 cause pollutants accumulating inside.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems exchange polluted indoor air for fresher exterior air without sacrificing energy savings.
