What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common things may cause bad indoor air quality in your Savannah home.

This includes:

  • Chemicals in [flooring, 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 have fresh air the way older residences do. Secure 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 increasing inside.

When this happens, a whole-house ventilation system is suggested. Ventilation systems swap out dirty indoor air for cleaner outside air without compromising energy savings.
