We’ve long been aware of outdoor airborne particles that can adversely affect our health. One has to look no further than seasonal allergy sufferers to find evidence of this. Lately, indoor air has come under more scrutiny as we learn more about the presence and effects of mold and other indoor air contaminants. As you seek ways of keeping yourself safe from these dangers, the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) can be a helpful resource.
The IAQA is a non-profit organization based right here in Maryland that supports research and education about indoor environments to promote the safety and well being of the general public. It also monitors legislation nationwide that concerns indoor air and promotes activity that encourages better air. Its communications keeps members abreast of the latest research and legislative developments.
As part of its mission, the IAQA establishes and promotes standards and protocols that different industries and the public can use when grappling with issues of indoor air quality. These standards can help you determine when poor air quality threatens the health of building inhabitants. They help us at Advance Mold Remediation correct problems. Afterward, the standards again help you to figure out whether contractors like us have done a good job.
Probably the most useful resource for you is the IAQA’s Consumer Information section. You’ll find all kinds of individuals and companies that can help you identify and correct indoor air problems. You can work with these service providers knowing that they’re the most qualified experts in the field and they’ve undergone an extensive education, training, and certification process to ensure you have the best indoor air quality possible.
You’ll find us on that list. Advance Mold Remediation is a proud IAQA member and relies on it to help us provide the best service possible for our customers. Contact us to learn more about how we put out IAQA membership to work for your benefit.
