Indoor Air Quality is affected by a myriad of factors, many of which are under your control. For instance, all biological creatures need food and water, and by controlling these factors, you can manage pests of any size—from large (rodents) to small (bugs) to very small (mould), simply by keeping your building dry and clean.
Ultra-fine particulates are another concern as they can enter our bloodstream directly. Children are the most vulnerable among us, exposed as they so often are by closer proximity to floor surfaces where they play, and where chemical cleaning compounds also lurk. And yet none of this should be daunting, as this course so adroitly explains.
Topics include mitigating and solving biological hazards presented by mold and animal/insect pests, origins and solutions for particulate hazards, chemical interactions with health.
