But what exactly does indoor air quality certification mean, and why is it important? Simply put, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings, particularly as it relates to the health and comfort of occupants. An IAQ test can help identify potential hazards, such as allergens, mold, and radon, and ensure that indoor air quality is safe for all occupants.

Are air quality tests really worth it, you might ask? Absolutely! Whether you're looking to maintain current air quality standards or actively improve them, an air quality test can help you identify pollutants and take steps to eliminate them. For the safety and well-being of your family or employees, an air quality test is an essential step towards a healthy and comfortable living or working environment.
