What Is Indoor Air Quality?

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) can be understood as the quality of air inside buildings and around them. Maintaining good Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is very important because it directly affects the health and well-being of residents or employees inside your building.

Why Is Air Quality Testing Important?

Extensive research conducted in the field of air quality has shown that indoor air is often much more polluted than outdoor air is. Whether you’re at work or relaxing in the comfort of your home, your family or employees could be breathing contaminated air. This can have severe negative effects on their health.

 

Moreover, poor air quality also has economic implications for your business. Contaminated air inside commercial premises is one of the leading causes of the “sick building syndrome”, which causes employees to feel lazy, sluggish and tired, thus reducing their productivity, affecting their health and increasing absenteeism. And this has a direct impact on your business’ performance and statistics. Air quality testing becomes imperative in order to determine the amount and type of pollutants present in the air around you and take steps in order to minimize or eliminate them.

What Does Air Quality Testing Entail?

Air quality testing comprises inspections, procedures and tests to determine the presence of a number of pollutants and air contaminants such as:

  • Ventilation- checking whether the ventilation in your commercial and/ or residential buildings is appropriate and whether contaminated air is moving out of your spaces in adequate amounts.
  • Chemicals
  • Formaldehyde
  • Asbestos
  • Mould
  • Bacteria
  • Dust mites
  • Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC)
  • Pesticides
  • Dust Particles
  • Radon

Symptoms of Poor Air Quality

If the air in your residential or commercial establishment is contaminated and has a high concentration of pollutants, your family and employees are likely to experience one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Dizziness
  • Memory loss
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Respiratory problems
  • Shortness of breath
  • Skin irritation (especially around the eyes, nose or throat)
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Sinus congestion
  • Sneezing
  • Cough

If you notice anyone experiencing these symptoms, we strongly urge you to take it as a sign of bad air and get air quality testing done in order to be on the safe side and avoid further health complications due to poor air quality.

Physical Signs of Bad Air Quality

When the quality of the air inside your residential or commercial property is bad, it reflects not only in terms of the health of those that stay in the property for long hours but also in terms of the condition of the property itself. Some of the tell-tale signs of poor air quality that manifest in the condition of the building are:

  • Significant and unexplained dust buildup
  • Inconsistent distribution of air, i.e. presence of cold and warm spots inside the premises
  • Improper humidity
  • Growth of mould and mildew
  • Presence of unpleasant odours
