What is indoor air quality (IAQ)?

Indoor air quality (IAQ) relates to the air quality in and around buildings and structures. It’s an essential part of any workplace industrial hygiene program. Air quality directly relates to the health, safety and comfort of the building occupants.

Understanding and controlling common pollutants can help reduce the risk of indoor health concerns. Pollutants that affect indoor air quality can be biological, chemical, or aerosol.

  • Biological pollutants: Bacteria, viruses, molds, and pollen.
  • Chemical pollutants: Cleaning products, paints, solvents, furniture, carpet and combustible products.
  • Particulate and aerosol pollutants: Manufacturing activities, construction printing, photocopying and smoking.

Temperature, relative humidity and ventilation rates also affect people’s comfort and productivity.

Health effects of poor air quality:

Some health effects may appear soon after exposure to a pollutant. This includes:

  • eyes, nose, and throat irritation
  • headaches
  • dizziness, and
  • fatigue.

These immediate effects are generally short-term and treatable. Long-term health effects may only occur years after exposure. This includes respiratory diseases, heart disease, and cancer.
