What causes indoor air pollution?

Many everyday things may create bad indoor air quality in your West Chester house.

This includes:

  • Substances in [carpeting, furniture and drapery that let off fumes
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are usually more efficient, updated homes don’t ventilate the way older residences do. Snug weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and outside air out. This gives increased energy savings, but the limited exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger particles accumulating inside.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is suggested. Ventilation systems swap out contaminated indoor air for cleaner exterior air without giving up energy savings.
