What Is Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)?

Indoor air quality (IAQ) refers to the condition of the air inside buildings, which directly impacts the health, comfort, and performance of occupants. 

Maintaining good IAQ is crucial for reducing health risks, enhancing productivity, and ensuring compliance with health and safety regulations, such as the Clean Air Bill and BS40102 (part 1). 

How Can Poor Indoor Air Quality Affect Health?

Poor IAQ can lead to a range of health issues, including headaches, fatigue, respiratory problems, and long-term conditions such as asthma and allergies. 

As an employer or building occupier, it’s your responsibility to address IAQ concerns to create a safe and healthy workplace.

Common Sources of Indoor Air Pollution

The most common sources of indoor air pollution include dust, mould, pollen, cleaning supplies, emissions from office equipment, and outdoor air pollutants. Identifying and mitigating these sources is key to maintaining a clean indoor environment.

Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality

Improving indoor air quality involves a combination of strategies aimed at reducing pollutants, enhancing ventilation, and maintaining clean air within the premises. 

Here are several effective methods to improve IAQ:

1. Enhance ventilation

Ensuring proper ventilation is crucial for maintaining good indoor air quality. This involves regularly checking and maintaining HVAC systems to ensure they are working efficiently. 

Increasing the flow of outdoor air into the building can help dilute indoor pollutants. Simple actions such as opening windows and doors when weather permits can significantly improve ventilation.

2. Use air purifiers

Air purifiers can be highly effective in removing contaminants from the air, including dust, pollen, smoke, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs ).

High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters are particularly effective at trapping fine particles and allergens. Installing air purifiers in key areas of the building can help maintain a cleaner indoor environment.

3. Regular cleaning and maintenance

Regular cleaning helps reduce the accumulation of dust, mould, and other pollutants. This includes vacuuming carpets and upholstery with HEPA-filter vacuums, dusting surfaces, and cleaning air ducts

Keeping the building well-maintained prevents mould growth and the buildup of other harmful substances.

4. Control humidity levels

Maintaining optimal humidity levels (between 30-50%) is essential for preventing the growth of mould and dust mites. 

Using dehumidifiers in damp areas and ensuring proper ventilation in high-moisture areas like bathrooms and kitchens can help control humidity levels.

5. Monitor indoor air quality

Continuous monitoring of indoor air quality helps detect potential issues early and allows for prompt action. With advanced air quality monitors, you can keep track of pollutant levels and ensure they remain within safe limits. 

6. Implement an indoor air quality management plan

Developing and implementing a comprehensive indoor air quality management plan can help proactively address air quality issues. This includes regular monitoring, testing, and maintenance schedules, as well as educating employees about the importance of maintaining good air quality practices. 

We’ll work with you to design a bespoke Planned Preventative Maintenance contract which will help you achieve and maintain optimal IAQ.

By understanding the specific air quality challenges within your building, we can tailor solutions to effectively address and eliminate these issues, ensuring a healthier workplace for everyone.

Indoor Air Quality Assessments

Our comprehensive assessments evaluate the overall air quality and offer actionable solutions to improve it. The assessment process includes:

  • inspecting the premises,
  • testing for a wide range of pollutants, 
  • identifying sources of contamination, and 
  • providing a detailed report with findings and recommendations. 

We follow the criteria set out in the BREEAM Hea 02 – Indoor Air Quality document and consider factors such as ventilation, building materials, and occupant activities. This allows us to develop a clear understanding of your IAQ.
