What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common products may cause inferior indoor air quality in your Gaithersburg home.

This includes:

  • Chemicals in [carpet, furniture and drapes that give off fumes
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are usually more efficient, updated homes don’t ventilate the way older houses do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep interior air in and exterior air out. This offers increased energy savings, but the limited exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create particles accumulating indoors.

When this happens, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems replace contaminated indoor air for cleaner exterior air without sacrificing energy savings.
