Indoor air quality refers to the aerosol and gas content, temperature, and humidity of the air inside a structure. In the case of human habitation, the quality of the air is determined by its ability to maintain the health and well-being of humans occupying the structure.
The most important part of indoor air quality is the cleanliness of the air. Air contamination consist of particles, gases and vapours that may reduce the well-being and health of humans and decrese the output and efficiency of production processes.
Outdoor air pollution infiltrates into buildings. Without appropriate ventilation, it accumulates and can even react with other indoor air pollutants.
