How serious are IAQ problems?

0

The vast majority of IAQ problems are relatively minor. This means that occupants may suffer health effects such as cold or flu-like symptoms. In the case of workplaces, some individuals may miss some work days, and productivity will be affected. Serious and/or permanent health effects are much rarer, however they do occur, as in the case of Legionnaire’s disease outbreaks.

Much of the current knowledge is less than 20 years old, and there is a great deal that is not known about it. In fact, it is safe to say that far more is unknown than is known about the field at this time. Even experts cannot come up with a definite answer in every situation. 1.6 Types of pollutants. Air quality is affected by the presence of various types of contaminants in the air. Some are in the form of gases. These would be generally classified as toxic chemicals.
