What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common items may cause inferior indoor air quality in your Gainesville home.

This includes:

  • Compounds in [flooring, furniture and drapery that emit fumes
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are typically more efficient, newer homes don’t ventilate the way older residences do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and outside air out. This provides increased energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger pollutants accumulating indoors.

When this happens, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems swap out dirty interior air for more breathable exterior air without giving up energy savings.
