Indoor Air Quality is about the quality of the air inside or near homes, businesses, and other buildings such as schools and hospitals. Indoor Air Quality can have significant effects on the health of individuals and especially those who are susceptible to respiratory disease or who have disabilities due to age or other health factors. In the business world IAQ has been associated with ‘Sick Building Syndrome’ which is due to poor air quality at work. Typically, business owners have the responsibility to make sure that the air quality in their work place is healthy for their employees.

In larger commercial buildings effective ventilation and the use of air filters are the most common ways to keep the air quality at safe levels. Homeowners can also use similar methods of course, as well as keeping the home as clean as possible.
Some of the principal common pollutants contributing to poor Indoor Air Quality include second-hand smoke, volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), molds and other allergens.
