Indoor Air Quality

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of their occupants. Up to $1.6 million was paid in one single case of mold-related personal injury verdict in 2016. [see news]

IAQ can be affected by:


  • Mold and moisture

  • Gases including carbon monoxide, radon, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs)

  • Particulates that can induce adverse health conditions

Inexperienced consultants may employ generic measures to provide good IAQ, without a rigorous understanding of the project-specifics or an efficient science-based assessment of IAQ priorities. IAQ problems that get out of hand or are inaccurately managed can be quite costly in terms of:


  • Legal costs and bad publicity

  • Lost work time and/or property

  • Poorly executed environmental/industrial hygiene assessments

  • Expensive building or mechanical system repairs

  • Health-care expenses


The potential reductions in total costs from providing better IAQ in the U.S. are estimated to range as high as $168 billion per year, mostly from direct medical care and absenteeism.


Improving the Health of Workers in Indoor Environments


The job of controlling Indoor Air Quality in buildings continues to get more difficult as new IAQ guidelines, and Health and Safety regulations are enacted by the EPA, OSHA and local governments.
