Sensitive babies, coagulation, expensive electrical equipment, electrostatic shocks and stress are just some of the reasons why it is essential to maintain the correct humidity in hospital and healthcare environments.
Indoor air quality (IAQ) is essential for a healthy office environment. However, as modern buildings have become more efficient, they have also become more airtight, increasing the potential for poor IAQ.
You probably know that it’s harmful to breathe in polluted air when you’re outside. The same is true when you’re indoors. We spend about 90% of our time indoors, at home, at work or at school.
Employees should be safe while on the job; that includes healthy air quality. Although laws and policies exist to protect workers, problems with air quality on the job are often overlooked. Breathing unhealthy air at work can be dangerous, but it’s also preventable.
Materials within libraries and archives already contain moisture and are therefore highly sensitive to drying out. In high relative humidity conditions moulds thrive and appear in circular patches with a fluffy composition and produce acidic chemicals that cause further deterioration processes.
Museums buildings have specific indoor environment requirements. The criteria for setting the levels of environmental parameters are twofold: proper conditions for preservation of artifacts displayed and conditions for visitors’ comfort.
During the winter, when homes are heated and the air is dry, wood flooring loses some of its moisture and contracts or shrinks as a result. This can be avoided by a proper humidity level.
Wood is an organic material which exchanges moisture with the surrounding air. It swells and contracts depending on it’s moisture content, and it’s moisture level depends directly on the moisture in the surrounding air. This change in shape and size puts tremendous stress on the instrument.
Indoor Air quality can be defined in three segments.
To learn more about Indoor Air Quality we recommend you to start measuring. We have several measurement instruments who can help to find out. Based on these measurements results a good advice can be given for your optimal Indoor Air Treatment Solution.
