What is Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)?

Indoor Air Quality is a term used to describe the level or amount of air pollution that occurs inside a house or structure, especially occupied areas or rooms. Concentrations of air pollutants can be up to 100 times higher indoors than outdoors and the American Lung Association information reveals that most people spend 90% of their time indoors. Think about the reality that you breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air daily. It’s logical that IAQ products that can improve air quality and eliminate indoor air pollution have become increasingly important for many families, especially those dealing with allergies and respiratory illnesses. There are numerous possibilities for fighting allergy-inducing pollution in your house including high-efficiency air filtration and air cleaners that filter or kill all the pesky airborne toxins that bring on sneezing. Choices range from HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filtration to lights that reduce viruses and duct cleaning that eliminates built-up dirt from over the years.
