What is Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)?

Indoor Air Quality is a term used to define the level or amount of air pollution that occurs inside a house or structure, particularly occupied areas or rooms. Exposure to air pollutants can be up to 100 times higher indoors than outdoors and the American Lung Association estimates that most people spend 90% of their time indoors. Think about the fact that you inhale an estimated 3,000 gallons of air each day. It’s logical that IAQ products that can enhance air quality and eliminate indoor air pollution have become more and more important for many families, namely those suffering from allergies and respiratory issues. There are numerous possibilities for reducing allergy-inducing pollution in your house including high-efficiency air filtration and air cleaners that filter or kill all the bothersome airborne toxins that lead to sneezing. Options range from HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filtration to lights that eliminate viruses and duct cleaning that gets rid of built-up dirt from over the years.
