Air & Surface Treatment Technology


The future of indoor air quality is going to be a focus of public

Australians spend 90% or more of their time indoors

Despite this, relatively little research has been done on the quality of air in our homes, schools, recreational buildings, restaurants, public buildings, offices, or inside cars.

Indoor Air Quality refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. Understanding and controlling common pollutants indoors can help reduce the risk of indoor health concerns.

Indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the air are the primary cause of indoor air quality problems. Indoor air quality 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 indoor air quality.

Humans are the main contributors of microbe-laden particles indoors. Indoor air is arguably the fastest and most highly efficient means of pathogen spread in a given setting.

Biological Contaminants

Improvements in the quality, quantity, and movement of indoor air can mitigate the airborne spread of many human pathogens.

Contaminated central air handling systems

Contaminated central air handling systems can become breeding grounds for mould, mildew and other sources of biological contaminants and can then distribute these contaminants throughout a retail centre and many of these biological contaminants are small enough to be inhaled in Damp or wet areas such as cooling coils, condensate pans or unvented bathrooms can be a breeding ground for these biological contaminants.

Another major contributor to indoor air quality is Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and mould. Common sources of VOCs in the work place include building materials, office equipment, furniture, wall and floor coverings, upholstery, and virtually every commercially manufactured item in the workplace.

Poor indoor air quality can result in significant adverse impacts on our health and environment. Moreover, these impacts carry a significant cost burden to the economy.

The CSIRO estimates that the cost

The CSIRO estimates that the cost of poor indoor air quality in Australia may be as high as

$12 billion per year (Brown,1998). In recent years, comparative risk studies performed by the      USEPA and its Science Advisory Board have consistently ranked indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health.

Indoor air quality has been an ongoing focus within the Built Environment. However, the advent of COVID-19 has sparked a far greater awareness and approach to indoor air quality because healthier buildings result in:

  • Retaining top talent

  • Attracting tenants

  • Reduced sick leave

  • Reduced fatigue

  • Increased alertness

  • Increased mental performance

  • Increased productivity
