What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common items may create poor indoor air quality in your Grand Island residence.

This includes:

  • Chemicals in [flooring, furniture and drapes that emit fumes
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are typically more efficient, newer homes don’t ventilate the way older homes do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and outside air out. This provides better energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause pollutants building up inside.

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