Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

Indoor air quality in airport in Malaysia

Over the last several years, Indoor air quality in airport has become a global health concern as increasing amounts of outdoor air emissions begin to contaminate the air within buildings. Hence, it is important for building owners or managers to learn how small air quality will impact your overall health since what you do not know could result in potential health problems. A single or continuous exposure to contaminants present in the air could cause health problems, even serious infectious diseases. Pollutants are only detectable when indoor air quality assessments take place.

Why Indoor Air Quality is so Important?

Over the last several years, Indoor air quality or IAQ has become a global health concern as increasing amounts of outdoor air emissions begin to contaminate the air within buildings. Hence, it is important for building owners or managers to learn how small air quality will impact your overall health since what you do not know could result in potential health problems.

A single or continuous exposure to contaminants present in the air could cause health problems, even serious infectious diseases. Pollutants are only detectable when indoor air quality assessments take place.

ChronicHeadaches
Fatigue
Flu symptoms
Respiratory symptoms
Worsening allergies
Red eyes
It is better to prevent these by maintaining the facilities’ indoor air quality rather than receiving health complaints from the occupants.

Common IAQ Problems in Facility

Poor ventilation
Foul odor
High turnaround of occupants
Spread of airborne diseases.
Exposure to harmful chemical
Development of harmful mold and fungi
Most air pollution affects the indoor air quality comes from sources inside the building.

Air-Quality-Analysis

You may notice some of the more common side effects of indoor air pollution, like an unpleasant odor, but many others go undetected because germs and pathogens do not show symptoms immediately which later causes greater harms to health. This is when our Indoor Air Quality Testing and Analysis will evaluate and interpret the condition of your Indoor Air Quality and finally recommend the next course of action. Our analysis/assessment and our recommendations of the indoor air and next course of action is based on Industry Code of Practice on Indoor Air Quality 2010 by the Department of Occupational Safety and Health.

How Do We Do

Frequently Asked Questions

Studies done by the US Environmental Protection agency (EPA) indicate that the indoor levels of pollutants may be 2-5 times, and occasionally more than 100 times higher than outdoor levels. These levels become a concern because it’s estimated that people spend almost 80% of their time indoors.

That really depends on who you talk to. Facility managers understand that they carry some responsibility. Building occupants do not generally accept any responsibility. We however feel that everyone shares the responsibility of indoor air quality of a building, rig, or platform.
Mold is always present in the air and on indoor surfaces, thus, total avoidance of mold is impossible and may not be desirable. However, visual evidence or history of dampness in buildings and substantial visible mold or mold odor in buildings have been consistently associated with increases in symptoms of asthma and other respiratory health effects. There is also substantial evidence that dampness and visible mold are associated with increases in acute bronchitis and respiratory infections.
