Indoor air quality is a major issue for people’s health and well-being. Indeed, we spend almost 90% of our time in enclosed spaces. These typically include workplaces, our homes, public buildings (ERP), buildings and means of transport. That’s why it’s important to take the right steps to maximize air quality in indoor environments. Confined spaces are teeming with pollutants such as Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Fine Particles (PM), Carbon Monoxide (CO) and more. Not always visible to the naked eye, they can be very dangerous to health.

In this article:

The IAQ Guide

Contrary to popular belief, indoor air quality is far more polluted than outdoor air quality. The Covid-19 crisis has raised questions in people’s minds. Indeed, this virus has shown us that without proper ventilation or aeration of enclosed spaces, pollutants settle in and air quality deteriorates.
