Indoor air quality is the quality of the air in and around a building, particularly in relation to the health and comfort of its occupants. A building's indoor air quality is affected by complex and interlinked factors, due to both outside and inside air pollution.
Now, more than ever, businesses across the UK are focused on improving the quality of the environment in which their staff works.
Good quality indoor air has never been more important. As well as decreasing the risk of spreading Covid-19, improving your building’s indoor air quality can also have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing, productivity and general comfort of occupants.
How can indoor air quality minimise the spread of germs?
Research has shown that buildings and their indoor air quality have been linked with the spread of infectious diseases, such as measles and influenza and with SARS-CoV-2, the majority of outbreaks involving 3 or more people were linked to time being spent indoors.
Circulating fresh air, and improving the level of air quality will control the concentration of indoor respiratory aerosols and reduce airborne transmission of infectious agents.
