Indoor Air Quality
Poor indoor air quality caused by a build-up of indoor air pollutants can lead to an impact on the health of a building and its occupants.
Most common pollutants are biological such as mould spores, pollen and dander; other pollutants are VOCs, gases, Carbon Monoxide and building materials such as paint containing lead and formaldehyde and asbestos.
Homes have become more airtight in recent years which prevents air from ‘changing’ (existing air is allowed to escape from a room, new air comes in from outside).
Ventilation levels can be increased in a property by opening trickle vents in windows, clearing air bricks in the walls for background ventilation, installing fans in the bathroom and kitchen unless you have a central extraction unit installed.
