Indoor Air Quality


Certain products and equipment can release volatile organic compounds and other chemicals into the air and have an adverse impact on the health of people in your buildings. Indoor air quality can sometimes be worse than that of the air outdoors due to the prevalence of pollutants from sources such as paints, printer cartridges, adhesives, HVAC systems, portable generators, carpets, and other types of office equipment.

Monitor for common indoor air pollutants such as radon and carbon monoxide
Centralize printing and copying to reduce toner off-gassing
Purchase products with low emissions of volatile organic compounds
Purchase less-toxic cleaning and maintenance products
Limit use of pesticides and use less-toxic pest control methods
Indoor air quality (IAQ) is a term which refers to the air quality within and round buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. IAQ can be affected by gases (including carbon monoxide, radon, volatile organic compounds),particulates, microbial contaminants (mold, bacteria), or any mass or energy stressor that can induce adverse health conditions. Source control, filtration and the use of ventilation to dilute contaminants are the primary methods for improving indoor air quality in most buildings. Residential units can further improve indoor air quality by routine cleaning of carpets and area rugs.

Determination of IAQ involves the collection of air samples, monitoring human exposure to pollutants, collection of samples on building surfaces, and computer modeling of air flow inside buildings.

IAQ is part of indoor environmental quality (IEQ), which includes IAQ as well as other physical and psychological aspects of life indoors (e.g., lighting, visual quality, acoustics, and thermal comfort).
