What causes indoor air pollution?

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

This includes:

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

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

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