FAQs

Indoor Air Quality is the air quality within buildings and structures. IAQ is known to affect the health, comfort, and well-being of building occupants. Poor indoor air quality has been linked to sick building syndrome, reduced productivity, and impair basic motor and cognitive skills. Indoor workplaces are found in many working environments such as offices, sales areas, hospitals, libraries, schools and preschool childcare facilities. IAQ can be affected by gases (including carbon monoxideradonvolatile organic compounds), particulatesmicrobial contaminants (moldbacteria), or any mass or energy stressor that can induce adverse health conditions.

Ionization, filtration, and the use of ventilation to dilute contaminants are the primary methods for improving indoor air quality in most buildings. Residential units can further improve indoor air quality by routine cleaning of carpets and area rugs.

Determination of IAQ involves the collection of air samples and the analysis of contaminant levels in the air.

Poor IAQ is a major health hazard. Often, people are surrounded by air that is not fit for breathing--let alone thriving--and they don't even know it. Recently we've faced Covid-19 which we learned can literally hang suspended in the air for HOURS....that equates to bad indoor air quality!
