Air quality control is an attempt to identify and remove sources of air pollution within homes and businesses (Indoor Air Quality/ IAQ).Exposure to air pollution for long periods of time can cause respiratory and cardiovascular health problems such as asthma, cancer and other diseases. Sources of indoor air pollution include toxic gases such as radon, carbon monoxide, dust, mold
, mildew, spores, anthrax, pesticides, and toxic chemical solutions used in household cleaners and detergents. Testing the quality of the air is the first step in indentifying problems. Air testing and abatement services can be found in your local directory. Indoor Air Quality Control
(IAQ) contractors use professional detectors to determine the level of toxic gas or other pollutants in your residence or industrial building. Remediation and removal of the source of pollution should be done by certified professionals. Find out what type of supplies and equipment they will use, such as fans or detectors. Make sure to perform maintenance on all the equipment on a regular basis. Gas and pollution reduction is vital to maintaining a healthy environment.
