The importance of indoor air quality and ventilation

Poor indoor air quality (IAQ), or indoor air pollution, is linked to a range of health conditions that contribute to a significant loss of healthy life years, premature mortality and significant cost to the NHS and wider economy. Ventilation and air exchange help deliver improved indoor air quality, reduce the impact of airborne viruses and have a positive impact on personal health and wellbeing. The most important thing you can do is know how your house is ventilated, ensure it is ventilated properly and keep up a good maintenance and cleaning regime.
