What Causes Poor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) In Commercial Facilities? Identifying Indoor Air Pollutants Can Help You Find the Perfect Solution
It is common knowledge that air pollution has disastrous effects on human health as well as on the environment. But what you might not know is that indoor air can be as much as 50 times more polluted than outdoor air. This is because enclosed indoor spaces allow the buildup of pollutants in a concentrated area along with pollutants from indoor sources.
Indoor air pollution leads to the same negative health effects as outdoor air pollution, and can also lead to increased sickness and decreased productivity among employees. Fortunately, there are steps that can be taken towards protecting commercial building inhabitants by helping them breathe cleaner air. The first step to improving indoor air quality is understanding and identifying the sources of pollution so that the appropriate solutions can be selected.
Factors that Affect Indoor Air Quality
Chemical pollutants come in many forms. While paint stores and auto repair shops have obvious sources of chemical pollutants, toxic vapors can be generated from a wide range of sources from chemicals used in cleaning to gasses emitted from raw materials used in the manufacturing of the furniture.
Particulate matter (PM) is one of the most prominent sources of air pollution. Smaller particles can stay suspended in the air for long periods of time. These same small particles are the most damaging to human health, because they can not only penetrate deep into lungs but into body tissue. Learn more
