The Importance of Indoor Air Quality

The quality of air inside buildings, workplaces and homes is important for occupants’ comfort but also for their health. Poor indoor air quality can cause serious health problems and has been linked to lung disease, difficulty breathing, worsened asthma and more.

If you are experiencing any of these issues, the quality of air in your home or office may be not safe.

Extended exposure to poor quality air can be extremely harmful and can cause long term health problems.
