Indoor Air Quality
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ): The nature of air that affects the health and well-being of occupants.Indoor Air Pollution (IAP): The plethora of pollutants that exist in indoor environments.
The pervasiveness of indoor air pollution and human exposure to indoor pollutants and contaminated air is a major public health issue. Since 1970, information on the health risk associated with indoor air pollutants (IAP), has increased steadily. Because the general population is indoors most of the time and because of the pervasive nature indoor air pollution, IAP, no one is immune to the effects of indoor air pollution, IAP.
Reported health risks associated with IAP include eye, nose, and throat irritations, central nervous system disorders (CND), allergic sensitivity reactions, and a variety of other respiratory and health problems as further described on the Health Risks page.
Poor Indoor air quality (IAQ)Poor indoor air quality can be traced to many factors. Among some of the causes of contaminated indoor air quality, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, (NIOSH) has noted are: microbial contamination, contamination from inside the building (including fire damage and water damage), contamination from outside the building, inadequate ventilation, and fabric contamination. TERS has the expertise to deal with the complete range of causes for contaminated air and poor indoor air quality. TERS provides Contaminated-indoor-air-quality testing services in New York (NY), New Jersey (NJ), Connecticut (CT), Rhode Island (RI), Massachusetts (MA), Pennsylvania (PA), Delaware (DE), Maryland (MD) and New York City (NYC).
Healthy Indoor EnvironmentThe quality of air contributes to productivity, comfort, and a sense of health and well being in a healthy indoor environment. The indoor air should be free from significant levels of odors, dust and contaminants and circulates to prevent stuffiness without creating drafts. Occupants should be free from feeling sick. See Health risk page. Temperature and humidity should also be appropriate to the season and to the clothing and activity of the building occupants.
