What causes indoor air pollution?

Many everyday things may create poor indoor air quality in your Shreveport home.

This includes:

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

Though they are usually more efficient, modern homes don’t ventilate the way older houses do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep interior air in and outdoor air out. This gives more energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause pollutants increasing inside.

When this occurs, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems replace contaminated inside air for more breathable outdoor air without sacrificing energy savings.
