What causes indoor air pollution?

Many everyday items may contribute to poor indoor air quality in your Tulsa residence.

This includes:

  • Compounds in [carpet, furniture and window treatments that let off fumes
  • Cleaning sprays
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are usually more efficient, newer homes don’t ventilate the way older homes do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and exterior air out. This offers increased energy savings, but the limited exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger pollutants accumulating inside your home.

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