Innovations in Indoor Air Quality Monitoring and Why it Matters

Innovations in indoor air quality (IAQ) monitoring bring high quality analytical measurements into our homes and workplaces to ensure the on-going health and safety of the air we breathe. Since people spend ~ 90% of their time indoors, air quality is known to affect health, comfort, mental acuity, and physical performance. Hazardous air pollutants from sources such as poorly maintained HVAC systems, cleaning products, out-gassing from building materials and other manufactured goods, emissions from industrial processes, stoves, and fireplaces can accumulate indoors. This makes indoor air composition complex and dynamic depending upon occupant activities and building structures. The COVID19 pandemic has also recently raised public health awareness of the impact of aerosols and pathogen air contaminants. IAQ monitoring provides trace level compound detection combined with expertise to link analytical results to potential sources and health effects. Understanding the level of pollutants present in indoor air is critical analytical data to guide remediation and engineering controls. This session presents IAQ measurement innovations, regulatory guidance, and mitigation strategies.
