Moisture-Related (IAQ) Indoor Air Quality Problems
A home should have an exchange of air between the indoors and outdoors. Without this air exchange, a home can accumulate moisture and mould can become a problem, and you can experience poor indoor air quality (IAQ).
Mould growing in the home can release mould spores, toxins, odours and this can represent a health concern for members of the household. The exchange of stale air in the home with fresh outdoor air reduces potential air quality problems and helps to prevent moisture buildup in the home.
Indoor-outdoor air exchange also can help deal with harmful chemicals that can be released from synthetic fabrics, furnishings, household products, cigarette smoke and burning candles.
Clean air is essential for good health, and this is especially true when it comes to indoor air.
As Canadians, we spend close to 90% of our time inside; at home, at work and in recreational environments. Most people, however, are unaware of the effects that poor indoor air quality can have on their health.
All of us have the ability to control the quality of our own indoor air.
