Because most people spend over 80% of their time indoors, improving Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is crucial for our health and well-being. Indoor Air Quality has become one of today’s leading health concerns. The outside environment, ventilation systems, construction materials, furniture, carpeting, paints, and cleaning solutions are a few of the many factors that contribute to the quality of indoor air.
The ventilation system has been cited as a prime contributor to Sick Building Syndrome. This can be due to poor design, improper maintenance, or incorrect operation. It may even be as simple as a change from the initial home or office layout, which can affect system efficiency.
It is important to distinguish between Sick Building Syndrome and Building Related Illnesses:
Providing better indoor air quality is everyone’s responsibility. There are many factors that we can control to help provide better indoor air quality and a healthier building:
Particulates – Very small solid or liquid substances, such as inorganic / organic compounds and dormant / living organisms, that are light enough to float in air.
Microbial – This category represents germs, viruses, and bacteria. These small organisms can only be seen through a microscope, and are present in every environment.
Chemical (Gaseous) – Hundreds of gaseous pollutants, covering all combustion gasses and organic chemicals (VOC’s), have been detected in indoor environments. Health effects vary widely and depend on the types, concentrations, frequency and duration of exposure.
