Indoor Air Quality Facts

Let's make our life more healthier
  • The USA Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is the leading authority on environmental issues has confirmed that poor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is the main cause for Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) and the Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning System (HVAC) is the main contributor for biological, particulate and chemical contaminants indoors.
  • In 1984 the World Heath Organization (WHO) confirmed that Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) was a major modern day health problem, having estimated that up to 30% of new and old buildings are subjected to excessive complains related to poor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).
  • Further studies made by National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) found that more than 50% of IAQ problems are related to poor ventilation and related maintenance.
  • People in developed and industrialized countries spend up to 90% of their time indoors, mostly at the working place and this is a major concern as studies conducted by the NIOSH, EPA and others show that Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) in many cases is up to 70 times more polluted than outside air.

The USA EPA has noted that up to 20% or 1/5 of the occupants of sick buildings suffer from various symptoms of SBS. These health effects are due to poor IAQ and may be experienced soon after exposure or possibly years later and can be categorized in the following order:-

  • Immediate Effects - irritation of the eyes, nose and throat, headaches, dizziness and fatique.
  • Short-Term Effects -  which include asthma, hypersensitivity pneumonitis and humidifier fever.
  • Long-Term Effects - which include some respiratory diseases, heart disease and cancer that can be severely fatal.

Economic losses due to poor IAQ and SBS is very high which is in form of:

  • Absenteeism
  • Medical Treatment
  • Hospitalization
  • Lower Productivity

It is estimated that an average of 140 square meter or 1500 square feet of area generates 18kg of dust per year. Even a slightest of 100mm of accumulated dust in air conditioning ductwork can reduce the system efficiency by up to 21%.

Duct Cleaning

Why duct cleaning?

  • It is well accepted by all authorities including EPA, NIOSH, ASHRAE, etc that HVAC System is the major contributor to poor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).
  • Replacing old and dirty air conditioning ducting is very expensive and virtually impossible to a certain organization.
  • Cleaning and sanitizing the air conditioning ducting and chemical cleaning of Air Handling Units (AHU’s) is the only effective and practical way solution to significantly improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).
  • This approach costs less than 5% of replacement cost with a minimum or no disruption to normal business.
  • Benefits reaped can be in the form of improved health standard; hence you and your employees should experience fewer symptoms of illness and respiratory problems.
  • Air in office will be cleaner and fresher since poor indoor air is far more dangerous to breathe than outdoor air.
  • Improved air quality minimizes the risk of illness thus resulting in higher productivity level and fewer lost working days.
  • Savings can also be derived from lower medical bills.
  • Technical benefits can be in the form of energy savings – better air flow and well balance of air distribution.
  • Reduced risk of fire since formation of mold and textile fibers can be eliminated.
  • Higher asset efficiency and longer asset life span since overall system is well maintained.
