How Plains Flooding Affects IAQ

With recent spring storms and snows melts impacting the plains we take a look at how flooding affects IAQ (Indoor Air Quality). Nearly 10 million people were under flood warnings as of Monday, March 18 in the Midwest and Mississippi Valley. According to Nebraska Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) 74 cities, 65 counties and four tribal areas have been declared states of emergency in the wake of the flooding. The flooding was produced by a hurricane like “bomb cyclone” that created a blizzard and subsequent rapid snow melts. Federal Aid Coming Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts along with U.S. Senator Deb Fischer said they will seek federal disaster aid from the Trump administration. Vice President Mike Pence will tour the affected area with Governor Ricketts in the coming days to assess the extent of flooding damages.

Indoor Air Quality Critical For Well-Being

The World Health Organization (WHO) establishes that health is one of the fundamental rights that every human being must have. They define it as a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not only the absence of diseases. Despite this, it is increasingly common for the medical community to present data on the dangers of exposure to air pollution, especially indoor air quality. A Few IAQ Facts We spend 90% of our time indoors, with our work, education, and leisure, and we breathe around 3,000 gallons of air a day. The indoor air quality (IAQ) is critical for well-being. Shouldn’t we be thinking about how IAQ impacts our lives? Optimum IAQ, as determined by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), is “air in occupied spaces in which there are no known or expected contaminants at concentrations likely to be harmful and no conditions that are likely to be associated with occupant health or comfort complaints and air with which virtually no occupants express dissatisfaction.” The need to control and maintain an ...
