Indoor Air Quality
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) testing is necessary to avoid the possibility of damage to your property and those living and working in the environment. While most people think of property damage costs when mold and water damage occur, exposure to these elements can have a serious impact on your health. Some health risks associated with exposure to mold and mildew include:
- Exacerbation of preexisting allergies and asthmatic symptoms
- Coughing, wheezing, and labored breathing
- The development of asthma, both in children and adults
- Respiratory tract infections
- Headaches and sinus infections
- Fever, fatigue, and cognitive impairment
- Pulmonary hemorrhage in infants
Air Tech 24 offers Indoor Air Quality testing so you’re able to live and breathe comfortably in your home or workplace.
Many things can affect indoor air quality including:
Temperature – how hot or cold it is.
Humidity – the amount of water vapor in the air.
Indoor Pollutants – gases or particles from sources inside the home, such as cigarette smoke, household products (paints, cleaners) or building materials (pressed wood products, carpeting).
Outdoor Pollutants – contaminants that make their way into the home from outside, such as car and boiler exhaust, fires, or chemical releases.
Ventilation – odors and pollutants can build up indoors when there is not enough fresh air getting into the home.
Building maintenance – poor home maintenance can lead to cracks and leaks, which can cause pest infestations, mold growth and building damage.
