Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Indoor Air Quality?
Indoor air quality refers to the cleanliness, or quality, of the air in and around a building, be that a home, commercial space, or other indoor space. Often it refers to the contamination that is in the air but could also refer to the condition of the air itself, such as the humidity in the air as well as the temperature. Indoor air quality is increasingly something that is being looked at and addressed, and there is a wide range of potential pollutants that could be found in the air during an indoor air quality testing session.
How Can I Tell If There Is An Indoor Air Quality Problem In My Baltimore Office Or Place Of Business?
Usually, you will have someone that notices an odor inside the building that is noticeable when the HVAC system is on, or that some notice a difference in their breathing when they are inside the building versus outside the building. Whatever the reason is, if you have people inside the building noticing something off with the air quality, likely there is an issue with the indoor air quality and it is time to have some indoor air quality testing from Air Cleaning Technologies. They will test for mold, hazardous materials, lead, as well as other particulates that might be present in the air.
What Are The Most Common Causes Of Indoor Air Quality Problems?
There are a number of potential sources for indoor air quality problems in Baltimore. First is poor ventilation in the building with either a lack of outdoor air being cycled into the building or contaminated air being brought into the building. Next is a failure to do proper maintenance for the HVAC system. Another possible cause is moisture damage that isn’t handled, such as from a storm or high humidity. If there are construction or remodeling activities going on in the building, this could affect indoor air quality. And generally, if the air both indoors and outdoors is already contaminated, indoor air quality will suffer.
