What causes indoor air pollution?

Many everyday products may cause poor indoor air quality in your Ocala home.

This includes:

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

Though they are usually more efficient, modern homes don’t have fresh air the way older homes do. Snug weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and outside air out. This offers more energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger particles increasing indoors.

When this occurs, a whole-house ventilation system is suggested. Ventilation systems replace dirty inside air for more breathable exterior air without giving up energy savings.
