Indoor Environmental Quality, (IEQ) refers to the quality of the
overall built environment. Origination of indoor environmental contaminants
can occur within a building itself or be introduced from outdoors.
The presence of increased concentrations of contaminants can occur
even if proper HVAC system operation and proper engineering controls
are maintained. IEQ also accounts for the quality of the indoor
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) deals with the health and comfort of
the air inside buildings. IAQ may be compromised by microbial contaminants
(mold, bacteria), chemicals, allergens, or any mass or energy stressor
that can affect the health of people. Often the perception
is that outdoor air is polluted, but indoor air is acceptable. Many
studies and experience show that this isn't always the case. In
conjunction with the quality of indoor environment, the overall
quality of the indoor air is of importance.
Preserving an indoor environment that offers a healthy and comfortable
environment is important and requires the understanding of complex
issues. These issues include monitoring for gases and vapors (CO,
CO2, TVOC), chemicals, formaldehyde, respirable particles, lighting
and acoustics. Enviro Team North America has the understanding and
experience to offer solutions to these issues.
