INDOOR AIR QUALITY

Environmental Sciences / Engineering

Indoor air quality (IAQ) can affect your life, your family and healthy survival within your home or business. The term refers to the quality of the air you breathe. IAQ can be affected by certain elements like radon, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds along with other toxic gases. Further contributing factors to IAQ could include mold, particulates, bacteria and microbial contaminants affecting your energy and health. The most common way to manage and control IAQ involves proper ventilation to minimize the contaminants, but does not resolve the problem in order to improve indoor air quality.

Various air tests can be purchased to determine if you have a problem with IAQ. When choosing a test kit, be sure it can detect allergens and other contaminants that you wish to test for. The kit you purchase should also test your home in its entirety according to living space and square footage. Some IAQ test kits can be a bit pricy depending on the extent of the pollutants and impurities being tested. Some tests can be done at home and sent to a lab for detailed analysis.

Choosing a professional may be the best option if this is your first home air testing or you are new to the home and want to guarantee a healthy environment. Martech Group will consult with you prior to the test to determine the best option for your home and its size. The service involves a team of safety professionals, industrial hygienists and environmental engineers to find the right solution for your home or commcial business if required..

The experts testing the IAQ will test and offer resolutions for mold and moisture, sick building issues, foul odor problems, airborne particle concerns, possible allergens and flood related issues. OSHA and ASHRA set the standards for building codes and air quality testing must meet these principles for health and comfort. Filtration systems and schedules are then evaluated and recommended for long term healthy IAQ.

Some recommendations to improve indoor air quality includes avoiding smoking indoors, cleaning rugs and carpets often and change your furnace or air conditioner filters frequently using the better allergen-approved filters. Be sure your stove, furnace, space heater and air conditioner is maintained regularly and working properly.

Provide high ventilation when using cleaners, pesticides, paints, strippers and other solvents in the home. These types of pollutants can linger in the air for extended periods of time after use and ventilation can lessen the potency. Benefits in testing your home for IAQ and managing further effects can promote the good health and productivity for you and your family.
