IAQ Assessment using the 7 Principals of Healthy Homes #IAQS 3-18-2014 #IAQS #IAQ

1,056 views

Published on

Indoor environmental assessments encompass the professional assessment of everything within a home that could compromise the occupant's health and safety.
The concept of a "Healthy Home" was pioneered by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to promote safe, decent, and sanitary housing as a means for preventing diseases and injury. Seven basic principals were established not to just help with the professional assessment of the home but to help the occupants understand and take control of their indoor environment.

The Seven Principals are:

1. Dry,
2. Clean,
3. Pest-Free,
4. Safe,
5. Contaminant-Free,
6. Ventilated, and
7. Maintained.

These simple principals should be used when anyone is assessing a home's indoor environment and then presented to the occupants in a way that they can not only understand the current conditions of their indoor environment but also take control, improve, and maintain their indoor environment.

  6. 6. www.FloridaIAQ.com Slide 6 OF 105 Principal 1 • 1. Keep your home Dry Damp houses provide a nurturing environment for mites, roaches, rodents, and molds, all of which are associated with asthma. www.FloridaIAQ.com
  7. 7. www.FloridaIAQ.com Slide 7 OF 105 Principal 2 • 2. Keep your home Clean: Clean homes help reduce pest infestations and exposure to contaminants.
  8. 8. www.FloridaIAQ.com Slide 8 OF 105 Principal 3 • 3. Keep your home Pest-Free: Recent studies show a causal relationship between exposure to mice and cockroaches and asthma episodes in children; yet inappropriate treatment for pest infestations can exacerbate health problems, since pesticide residues in homes pose risks for neurological damage and cancer.
  9. 9. www.FloridaIAQ.com Slide 9 OF 105 Principal 4 • 4. Keep your home Safe: The majority of injuries among children occur in the home. Falls are the most frequent cause of residential injuries to children, followed by injuries from objects in the home, burns, and poisonings.
  10. 10. www.FloridaIAQ.com Slide 10 OF 105 Principal 5 • 5. Keep your home Contaminant-Free: Chemical exposures include lead, radon, pesticides, volatile organic compounds, and environmental tobacco smoke. Exposures to asbestos particles, radon gas, carbon monoxide, and second-hand tobacco smoke are far higher indoors than outside.
  11. 11. www.FloridaIAQ.com Slide 11 OF 105 Principal 6 • 6. Keep your home Ventilated: Studies show that increasing the fresh air supply in a home improves respiratory health.
  12. 12. www.FloridaIAQ.com Slide 12 OF 105 Principal 7 • 7. Keep your home Maintained: Poorly-maintained homes are at risk for moisture and pest problems. Deteriorated lead-based paint in older housing is the primary cause of lead poisoning, which affects some 240,000 U.S. children.

  15. 15. www.FloridaIAQ.com Slide 15 OF 105 The Holistic Approach • By using the Seven Principals the IEP will broaden their approach to the assessment of indoor environments beyond the inspection or sampling of mold. • Our industry poorly defines an Indoor Environmental Assessment and far too often a mold inspection is referred to as an Indoor Air Quality Assessment. www.FloridaIAQ.com
  16. 16. www.FloridaIAQ.com Slide 16 OF 105 It’s Not Just Mold • If an Indoor Environmental Assessment is approached as a mold inspection the inspector runs the risk of missing the obvious issues within the home. • If the determination of an indoor environmental concern is based solely on the sampling for mold even more will be overlooked by the inspector. www.FloridaIAQ.com
  17. 17. www.FloridaIAQ.com Slide 17 OF 105 It’s Not Just Mold • The following are examples of homes that were previously assessed for mold , many under the classification of an Indoor Air Quality Inspection and Testing. • The issues identified ranged from entertaining to painfully obvious as we assessed each home with the use of the Seven Principals of Healthy Homes. www.FloridaIAQ.com
