WHAT IS INDOOR AIR QUALITY (IAQ)?

IAQ IS THE CONDITION OF THE AIR IN AND AROUND A BUILDING, SPECIFICALLY AS IT CORRELATES TO THE HEALTH AND COMFORT OF ITS OCCUPANTS.

There can be numerous sources of indoor air pollution. These can range from the more obvious sources like cigarette smoke to lesser-known emissions, like those that can come from faulty or damaged heating and cooling systems.

Inadequate ventilation can also increase the possibility of indoor air pollution, especially if the pollution is seeping into the building from the outdoors. Without proper ventilation, these outdoor pollutants can become trapped inside your home, causing discomfort and health problems. 

Understanding and regulating indoor air quality can help you reduce the risk of common health problems. 

COMMON INDOOR AIR POLLUTANTS

Did you know that most people spend roughly 90% of their day indoors? This significantly increases the chances that a person will see negative side effects related to poor indoor air quality. Plus, indoor air pollution is commonly two to five more times concentrated than outdoor air pollution.

Poor indoor air quality can cause what is known as Sick Building Syndrome. When a building is “sick” it becomes a health hazard to its occupants.

Common pollutants:

Airborne Particles

From diesel, exhaust, dust, smoke, pet dander, and hair.

Old Building Materials

From building materials and furniture like asbestos and formaldehyde.

Household Odors and Gases

From cooking, cleaning, and painting.

Ozone & Carbon Dioxide

From outdoor air, and from people exhaling and cooking – even faulty or damaged mechanical equipment.

Molds, Viral & Bacterial Contaminants

From moisture, people, and other sources.
