What causes indoor air pollution?

Many everyday products may cause poor indoor air quality in your Toronto house.

This includes:

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

Though they are often more efficient, newer homes don’t ventilate the way older homes do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and outside air out. This offers higher energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger pollutants building up indoors.

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