Wrong! New studies have shown that indoors, the air can be far more polluted and, what’s more, is multiple times more likely to carry carcinogenic substances than outdoor air. For starters, think about the VOCs from detergents, paints and varnishes, formaldehyde exposure from laminate flooring and many furnishings, and particulates from carpets and wood-burners, and then consider that most of us – factoring in time at home, work, school and leisure – spend 90%+ of our lives indoors. At last month’s EMISSIONS & AIR QUALITY Smart Class 2019, AirProfiling’s Managing Director, Graham Mills, also made the point that with so many properties under their care and management, local authorities may have a direct or indirect accountability for the quality of indoor air breathed by employees, contractors and tenants. Graham went on to demonstrate that the right technology has to provide copious objective evidence of indoor air quality before the optimum solution can be implemented and put the case that Monitoring indoor air is the first and essential step to managing and controlling air quality.
