IAQ? What’s that? | Kalispell mold concerns
IAQ is a really short way of saying Indoor Air Quality. This is a major concern in the building industry as there have been studies performed showing that modern Americans spend almost 90% of their time indoors (on average).
When thought of in that light, you can see how the air you breathe becomes something you should consider!
Usually when talking about IAQ, another phrase you’ll hear is VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) and mVOC’s (Microbial Volatile Organic Compounds). These are things in the air (usually detectable by smell but not always) that affect the quality of the air you breathe.
Mold obviously is a concern, but also paints, carpets and pads, finishes, anything in your home or office can consist to good or bad IAQ.
