As a homeowner living in Maryland, you have probably heard the term “indoor air quality” before. And like many other homeowners, you have probably shrugged off the notion that indoor air quality, or IAQ, really matters. Unfortunately, many modern homes contain substances that are potentially hazardous to the health of their inhabitants. These range from dust, pollen, animal dander, and mold to the chemical vapor off-gassing from the newer synthetic building materials.
IAQ has been identified as one of the top five most urgent environmental risks to public health by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This is because the average American spends roughly 90% of each day indoors. Everyday your lungs process up to 1,000 cubic feet of air or the equivalent of 30,000 quart containers per day. And the air inside your home could be as much as 100 times more polluted than the air outside.
So maybe it’s time to reconsider the impact IAQ has on you and your loved ones.

Benefits of an Indoor Air Quality Assessment
Do You or Your Loved Ones Have Asthma?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that up to 20 million Americans have asthma, including 6.3 million children. The symptoms of asthma, as well as seasonal allergies, can be exacerbated by poor IAQ.
Attention Business Owners: Better IAQ Means Better Productivity
According to the EPA, the medical and lost-productivity costs of workers breathing poor air amounts to tens of billions of dollars each year in the United States alone. To make matters worse, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) estimates a 3% loss of productivity from poor IAQ. Yikes!
Attention Schools: Poor IAQ Means Poor Test Scores
According to research, poor IAQ can affect academic performance.
