What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily items may cause poor indoor air quality in your Tempe house.

This includes:

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

Though they are often more efficient, newer homes don’t breathe the way older residences do. Snug weather stripping and storm doors keep interior air in and exterior air out. This offers more energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause contaminants accumulating inside.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems exchange polluted interior air for fresher outside air without giving up energy savings.
