With most Americans spending approximately 90% of their time indoors according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the indoor air quality (IAQ) of people’s homes, schools, and businesses can have a significant impact on their comfort, health, and even productivity. This is why October has been designated as National Indoor Air Quality Awareness Month.

Unfortunately, EPA also warns that the concentrations of some indoor pollutants are often 2 to 5 times higher than typical outdoor concentrations. Some of the more common IAQ pollutants include mold, pollen, particulate matter, animal dander, formaldehyde and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs), pesticides, lead, asbestos, carbon monoxide and combustion gases, and tobacco and marijuana smoke to name a few.

“Increased concentrations of indoor pollutants can be due to a host of factors,” said Frank Selamie, President of CTSI. “These may including energy-efficient building construction if the structure lacks sufficient mechanical ventilation to ensure adequate air exchanges, activities taking place in the building, lack of preventive maintenance, and the increased use of synthetic building materials, furnishings, personal care products, pesticides, and even cleaning products. Indoor pollutants can also come from a combination of outdoor and indoor sources.”

CTSI proudly supports the efforts of National Indoor Air Quality Awareness Month with over 30 years of expertise offered to building owners and managers. Their professionals work to assess and optimize indoor conditions in commercial, industrial, institutional, educational, and healthcare facilities across the United States. Last year, CTSI even sponsored an educational video about National Indoor Air Quality Awareness Month that can still be seen at:
