What Is Indoor Air Quality?
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)Link opens in a new tab, indoor air quality refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures as it relates to the health and comfort of its occupants. Indoor air quality is affected by temperature, humidity, ventilation, and chemical or biological contaminants found within the building.

Why Is Indoor Air Quality Important?
The quality of the air we breathe, indoors and outdoors, has a direct effect on our health and comfort. You may notice some of the more prominent side effects of indoor air pollution, like an unpleasant odor, but many others go undetected.
Mildew and black mold are common symptoms of poor air quality, and as spores circulate, they perpetuate bad air quality. Many homeowners make black mold vs mildew comparisons to find out their risks, and research shows that mildew is not nearly as invasive or troublesome as mold. Mildew is a surface fungus, and a scrubbing brush will get rid of it, but mold is a different story.
Common causes of black mold, especially mold in bathrooms, include lingering moisture from improper ventilation, leaky toilets and sinks, and damp porous materials like rugs and drywall. Mold infestations often require professional cleaning, but if you ensure good air quality with proper HVAC maintenance, you shouldn’t have to worry about an infestation starting.
Both black mold and mildew grow in porous, organic material, and they thrive in humid conditions. Mold and mildew can both cause respiratory problems, but the CDC says mold is more likely to cause cold-like symptoms or more serious issues like shortness of breath and lung infections. Reduce your chances of bathroom mold with air conditioner maintenance and repair.
Indoor air pollution can cause serious health issues, including:
- Sore eyes
- Burning nose
- Worsening allergies
- Respiratory issues
- Flu-like symptoms
- Heart disease
- Other serious, long-term conditions
- Death, when carbon monoxide or other pollutants are present in high concentrations
According to the EPA, “Concentrations of some pollutants are often 2 to 5 times higher [indoors] than typical outdoor concentrations.”
The good news? You don’t have to leave the quality of the air you breathe up to chance. Contact your local Aire Serv to learn how we can help you improve the quality of the air in your home or business.
