Is your indoor air quality safe for your household?

Indoor Air Quality

People often don't spend a second thought on the quality of the air inside their homes, but it is more important than you'd think. In fact, it has a direct impact on your overall health. We need air to breath, but if that air is contaminated with allergens, bacteria and mold it could have serious negative consequences. Don't just assume that because you haven't had any symptoms yet, all is hunky dory. The IAQ-SFRB has indictated that in some cases health problems show up years later. Airborne particles can contain living organisms. (Bioaerosols)

The accronym IAQ stands for "indoor air quality" and it looks at the environment (air quality) and how it interacts with our health. For an IAQ test the technician measures the concentration of pollutants, air temperature and the humidity levels inside the building among other things.

Indoor air pollution has becoming a serious problem of the modern day society, according to the latest research of EPA and other scientific evidences. It turns out that indoor air is far more polluted than that of the outside environment of large industrial cities. Given the fact that people spend most of their time indoors, whether it is at their homes or in their offices, this problem can no longer be undermined, as it poses a grave threat to the human’s well-being and health.

It isn't really surprising how polluted the air inside a home can be if you consider how most air comes into the building. Especially households that have a duct system are more at risk. (This is why air duct cleaning is so important...) Ductless system fare slightly better since there is no venting system where dirt, allergens and mold can collect and grow.

  • Improperly maintained central HVAC systems
  • Particles and gases released by molds and bacteria
  • Humidification units
  • Volatile organic compounds
  • Furnishings including carpets
  • Household cleaning products
  • Pesticides
  • Bioaerosols
