How to perform indoor air quality assessment and air testing

Have you wondered how the scientist perform the indoor air quality (IAQ) testing in the field? There will be numbers of knowledge and skills required before you able to assess and investigate this issues. Before we go further, let us consider to learn the below-suggested topic for understanding the IAQ body of knowledge.

 

Why study indoor air quality is important?

Pollutants in our indoor environment can increase the risk of illness. Several studies by EPA, states, and independent scientific panels have consistently ranked indoor air pollution as an important environmental health problem. While most buildings do not have severe indoor air quality problems, even well-run buildings can sometimes experience episodes of poor indoor air quality.
