Why Indoor Air Quality Is So Important in Commercial Spaces

February 6th, 2023

Did you know that some studies have estimated that the indoor air quality (IAQ) of commercial buildings can be 3-4 times as poor as the outside air? Many business owners are surprised to learn that the air inside their buildings is often worse than outdoor air pollution.
