Indoor Air Quality: What do you know about it?

Indoor Air Quality: What do you know about it?
K-HEALTHinAIR project

When we hear the term “air pollution”, we usually associate it with a risk we face outdoors. However, the air we breathe indoors can be contaminated as well.

 

Indoor air quality (IAQ) refers to the quality of air in and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. In other words, the quality of indoor air dictates how pollutants, temperature, humidity, and other environmental elements influence the health and well-being of individuals who spend time, whether temporarily or permanently, in a closed space.

 

When indoor air quality is inadequate due to the presence of common pollutants, significant effects on human health can occur. Moreover, these effects have a more severe impact on some vulnerable groups. In fact, children, older people, people with pre-existing illnesses, and people of low socioeconomic status are often exposed to higher levels of indoor pollutants.

 

Please answer the following survey to let us know more about the common perception of Indoor Air Quality. It will not take more than 15 minutes.

 

 

This survey is developed under the EU-funded project K-HEALTHinAIR “Knowledge for improving indoor air quality and health”, which aims to evaluate, on the basis of scientific evidence, the effects of indoor air quality on health and provide cost-effective and easy-to-implement enforcement measures to monitor and improve the indoor air quality, as well as guidelines to support real-life interventions.
