What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common things may contribute to inferior indoor air quality in your Oklahoma City house.

This includes:

  • Chemicals in [carpeting, furniture and drapery that give off fumes
  • Cleaning sprays
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are often more efficient, newer homes don’t have fresh air the way older residences do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and outdoor air out. This provides increased energy savings, but the limited exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create particles building up inside your home.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems swap out polluted interior air for fresher exterior air without giving up energy savings.
