Indoor Air Quality Assesment
How clean is the air inside your home?

There are times when the air inside a home, an office, a warehouse, or any closed place in particular is more polluted than the air outside and can lead to allergies, asthma and other respiratory problems. Having bad indoor air quality is full of harmful contaminants that come from a variety of sources.

Regular things we have in most indoor places, like carpets, light fixtures and furniture, always attract dirt and dust, which tends to stay untouched for weeks. Also, the accumulation of mold is caused by the moisture inside the bathrooms and basement of your home or commercial property. Do you own pets? Do you smoke inside the closed environment? They damage the air quality as well.

Not many people use nor own a fireplace, but for those who do own it or use it, they are a strong source of carbon monoxide, along with combustion heating and cooling appliances.

Do you think the air around an indoor facility can be cleaned with normal household cleaner?
These products may help you make the indoor environment smell clean and rid fixtures of harmful microbes, but this is usually through the expense of toxic chemicals released into the air.

You can check your indoor air quality using the table right below this content. This will help you determine the status of the indoor air quality, helping you take the necessary steps to ensure a clean and healthy environment. Simply add up the points for each column checked to determine your overall indoor air quality score.
