The IAQ may be compromised by microbial contaminants ( mold bacteria ), chemicals (such as carbon monoxide radon allergens , or any mass or energy stressor that can induce health effects. Recent findings have demonstrated that indoor air is often more polluted than outdoor air (albeit with different pollutants) although this has not changed the common understanding of air pollution . In fact, indoor air is often a greater health hazard than the corresponding outdoor setting. Using ventilation to dilute contaminants, filtration, and source control are the primary methods for improving indoor air quality in most buildings.

U.S. Department of Labor [skip navigational links] Search Advanced Search A-Z Index Safety and Health Topics Indoor Air Quality In Focus Concerns about indoor air quality (IAQ) have increased since energy conservation measures were instituted in office buildings during the 1970s, minimizing the infiltration of outside air and contributing to the buildup of indoor air contaminants. IAQ generally refers to the quality of the air in an office environment. Other terms related to IAQ include indoor environmental quality (IEQ) and "sick building syndrome" (SBS).
Complaints about IAQ range from simple complaints, such as the air smelling odd, to more complex, where the air quality causes illness and lost work time. It may not be easy to identify a single reason for IAQ complaints because of the number and variety of possible sources, causes, and varying individual sensitivities.

NIOSH Safety and Health Topic:
Indoor Environmental Quality
"Indoor Environmental Quality," as the name implies, simply refers to the quality of the air in an office or other building environment. "Sick Building Syndrome" is a term many people use to convey a wide range of symptoms they believe can be attributed to the building itself. Workers typically implicate the workplace environment because their symptoms are alleviated when they leave the office. Indoor environmental contaminants can originate within the building or be drawn in from outdoors. If contaminant concentrations are excessive, IEQ problems can arise, even if the HVAC system is properly designed and well-maintained. NIOSH investigators have found IEQ problems caused by ventilation system deficiencies, overcrowding, offgassing from materials in the office and mechanical equipment, tobacco smoke, microbiological contamination, and outside air pollutants. Maintaining a healthy and comfortable indoor environment in any building requires integrating many components of a complex system. Indoor environment problems are preventable and solvable and practical guidance on how to manage your building for good indoor environmental quality is available.

Indoor Air Quality
Unlike outdoor air, indoor air is recycled again and again. This causes it to trap and build up pollutants. Common pollutants include dust, mold and spores, pollen, pet dander and smoke. EPA studies indicate that indoor levels of many air pollutants are two to five times higher than air pollutant levels outdoors.
Air Pollution in the Greater Houston Area
According to statistics gathered by the National Resource Defense Council , Houston ranked fifteenth (out of 239 U.S. cities) for "premature deaths attributable to particulate air pollution." While pollution levels in North Harris and Montgomery County are certainly lower than those in central Houston, our proximity to Houston is cause for concern. If we can't personally control the quality of our outdoor air, we can control the air quality inside our homes and busineses.
Sick Building Syndrome
"Over the past several decades, our exposure to indoor air pollutants has increased due to the construction of more tightly sealed buildings, reduced ventiilation rates to save energy, the use of synthetic building materials and furnishings, and the use of chemically formulated personal care products, pesticides, and household cleaners."

Indoor air pollution, building-related illness, and "sick building syndrome" have received increased attention over the last several years. Research, conducted by various agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), has shown that the quality of indoor air can be many times worse than that of the outdoor air. Given the fact that many people spend as much as 90 percent of their time indoors, the health risk due to indoor air pollutants is a significant public health concern. Indoor air quality can affect people's health and can have economic and legal implications. For example:
  • Pollutants can cause or contribute to short- and long-term health problems, including asthma, respiratory tract infections, allergic reactions, headaches, congestion, eye and skin irritations, coughing, sneezing, fatigue, dizziness and nausea. Indoor air pollutants can cause discomfort, and reduce attendance and productivity. Recent data suggest that poor IAQ can reduce a person's ability to perform specific mental tasks requiring concentration, calculation, or memory. Indoor air pollutants hasten building deterioration. For example, uncontolled moisture can result in mold growth that leads to the structural decay of building components.

Indoor Air Quality
There is good news and bad news about indoor air: the bad news is that indoor air often contains higher concentrations of hazardous pollutants than outdoor air; however, the good news is that everyone can reduce indoor air pollution.
How can the air inside our homes be so bad for us?
Over the years, buildings have been made more airtight to conserve energy. A variety of methods have been employed to keep the hot or cool air from escaping from our homes: installing storm windows and insulation; applying caulk and weatherstripping to seal cracks and other openings; and heating our homes with kerosene, wood, coal, and natural gas. Unfortunately, when we trap in hot or cool air, we also trap in pollutants and sometimes generate more.
Why is this an issue?
On average, people spend about 90 percent of their time indoors. Sixty-five percent of that is spent at home. To make matters worse, those who are most susceptible to indoor air pollution are the ones who are home the most: children, pregnant women, the elderly, and those with chronic illnesses. Children breathe in 50 percent more air per pound of body weight than adults do. EPA studies have found that pollutant levels inside can be two to five times higher than outdoors. After some activities, indoor air pollution levels can be 100 times higher than outdoors.
What are the sources of pollutants?

Is indoor air quality (IAQ) a health and safety concern?
Indoor air quality has become an important occupational health and safety issue. In the past few decades, energy conservation measures have led to airtight building construction that can create problems with IAQ. Frequently the ventilation systems are set to minimize the amount of fresh air entering and circulating within the building. This restriction impacts indoor air by allowing a build-up of air contaminants within the building that are not properly removed. People spend a lot of time indoors for example, many office workers will spend their entire working day inside buildings. People working indoors often experience symptoms such as headaches, shortness of breath, coughing or nausea just to mention a few. However, it is rarely possible to prove that these symptoms are related to a particular indoor air contaminant. In fact, building occupants are simultaneously exposed to a wide range of indoor air contaminants.

      Indoor Air Quality
      American adults spend about 90% of their time indoors, and thanks to our more tightly insulated/sealed homes and workplaces, the concentration of pollutants indoors may be even higher than outdoors. Major indoor pollutants include environmental tobacco smoke (secondhand smoke); radon; combustion products stemming from sources such as pet dander, pollen, molds, and dust mites; volatile organic compounds present in paints, cleaners, pesticides, copiers, printers, glues, and adhesives; lead dust from old, lead-based paints; and asbestos. Here are five easy steps you can take to reduce pollution at home:
      Vacuum and clean regularly. Wipe your feet on a doormat. Better yet, take your shoes off when you enter your home. Avoid smoke from wood stoves, fireplaces, and cigarettes. Use less toxic products for managing pest problems in your home and garden. Use fans or open windows to reduce moisture in bathrooms and kitchens and reduce build-up of indoor pollutants.
