What causes indoor air pollution?

Many everyday items may contribute to poor indoor air quality in your Daytona Beach 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, newer homes don’t ventilate the way older residences do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep interior air in and outside air out. This gives more energy savings, but the limited exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause particles accumulating inside your home.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is suggested. Ventilation systems exchange contaminated interior air for more breathable outside air without sacrificing energy savings.
