What does Indoor Air Quality mean?

Indoor Air Quality, or IAQ, refers to the condition of the air inside buildings or enclosed spaces, such as homes, offices, schools, and public buildings. Good indoor air quality means that the air is clean and free of harmful pollutants and irritants, such as mould, dust, chemicals, and other particles that can cause health problems.

Indoor Air Quality can be affected by a variety of factors, including outdoor pollution, building materials, poorly maintained heating and cooling systems, cleaning products, and even human activities like smoking and cooking. Poor indoor air quality can cause a range of health problems, including respiratory issues, allergies, and headaches and contributes to phenomena such as Sick Building Syndrome.

Maintaining good indoor air quality is important for both the health and comfort of the people who live or work in a building.

Strategies for improving indoor air quality may include proper ventilation, regular cleaning and maintenance of HVAC systems, and the use of air purifiers or other air-cleaning devices. As always, get in touch with us further advice.
