What is Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)?

Indoor Air Quality is a term used to denote the level or amount of air pollution that occurs inside a house or structure, especially occupied areas or rooms. Contact with air pollutants can be up to 100 times higher indoors than outdoors and the American Lung Association estimates that most people spend 90% of their time indoors. Consider the point that you breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air each day. It’s logical that IAQ products that can improve air quality and reduce indoor air pollution have become increasingly important for many families, specifically those fighting allergies and respiratory problems. There are numerous possibilities for reducing allergy-inducing pollution in your space including high-efficiency air filtration and air cleaners that filter or kill all the bothersome airborne toxins that bring on sneezing. Choices range from HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filtration to lights that kill viruses and duct cleaning that gets rid of built-up dirt from over the years. Call Roland J.
