Importance Of Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air quality, also known as indoor environmental quality, describes how the inside air can affect a person’s comfort, health, and ability to live and work. Temperature, humidity, lack of ventilation, mold from water damage, and any exposure to chemicals factor into determining indoor air quality.
Good indoor air quality should be comfortable in both temperature and humidity, maintain an adequate supply of fresh air, and control pollutants from inside and outside the home. Although changing your air filters regularly is crucial, it is not enough to maintain good indoor air quality at all times.
In some cases, problems can decrease the air quality and make the indoor air harmful to you and your family.
Although you want to make sure you have a well-sealed home, you do need to make sure there is proper ventilation. A lack of fresh outdoor air or an abundance of contaminated air brought into the home can cause serious health issues.
Poor upkeep of ventilation, heating, and air conditioning systems can exasperate present health issues while also causing new ones. This is especially true in cases of asthma and other respiratory problems and in more sensitive populations like children, the elderly, and those with chronic respiratory issues.
Any dampness and moisture due to leaks, flooding, or high humidity can cause air quality issues and may provide a breeding ground for molds. Molds may often not be visible, but they can wreak havoc on an occupant’s health.
Also, it is important to be on guard whenever there is any type of indoor construction. It may be wise to have your vents cleaned after any major construction indoors to help clean out the air.
