What Is Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)?
Indoor air quality, commonly called indoor environmental quality, determines how the air in your home or business impacts a person’s health, comfort, and ability to work.
Factors for indoor air quality include the following:
- Mold (due to water damage)
- Chemical exposure
OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) doesn’t currently have indoor air quality (IAQ) standards, but it does provide guidelines about common IAQ workplace complaints.
Isn’t Indoor Air Healthier Than Outdoor Air?
Not exactly. In fact, the opposite can be true.
Per the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air can be more polluted than outdoor air. This is due to increased indoor and outdoor pollutants settling in your home.
Pollutants can come from the following areas:
Failure to circulate stagnant, interior air can result in health and comfort issues for family, friends, and other occupants.
Why Is Indoor Air Quality Testing Important?
Testing air quality conveys the health of indoor air. Between dust, smoking, dander, and mold, IAQ levels can get out of hand. Keep an eye on your property’s IAQ by changing air filters every 3 months, testing air quality annually, and hiring a professional for water damage repairs.
How Do You Test Indoor Air Quality?
