What causes indoor air pollution?

Many everyday products may contribute to poor indoor air quality in your Cocoa residence.

This includes:

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

Though they are typically more efficient, updated homes don’t have fresh air the way older homes do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and exterior air out. This provides better energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause particles accumulating indoors.

When this happens, a whole-house ventilation system is suggested. Ventilation systems swap out polluted indoor air for more breathable outdoor air without compromising energy savings.
