Indoor Air Quality in Chattanooga
What is Indoor Air Quality?
According to the EPA “Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the quality of air within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. Understanding and controlling common pollutants indoors can help reduce your risk of indoor health concerns. Health effects from indoor air pollutants may be experienced soon after exposure or, possibly, years later.”
Indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the air are the primary cause of IAQ problems. Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and by not carrying indoor air pollutants out of the area. High temperature and humidity levels can also increase concentrations of some pollutants.
