IEQ: Indoor Environmental Quality

In a cancer treatment centre or industrial clean-room, the negative impact of micro-organisms has long been recognised.

In such environments, there are no good or acceptable micro-organisms. In other environments such as offices, stores, schools or houses, the normal impact of micro-organisms has generally been ignored. However, in these environments, micro-organisms cause direct damage to the buildings and to the other interior furnishings through staining and deterioration (rotting, corrosion, etc.), as well as exposing the occupants to an array of debilitating effects. Today we are faced with rising rates of:

  • Asthmatic conditions in humans
  • Drug resistant strains of microorganisms
  • An aging and immunosuppressed population
  • Financial and human consequences of "Sick Building Syndrome" causing building related illnesses
  • Damage to buildings and furnishings from fungi, mould and mildew

These dire affects require a re-examination of microbes. Microorganisms have no preference as to whom or what they attack or what damage they cause.

Used internationally since 1976 without a single failure, Aegis Antimicrobial has been the professionals choice for lowering the microbial count to improve IEQ. Aegis has proven successful in high-performance applications, where safety is paramount like cancer and bone-marrow transplant wards, world-wide. Take a pre-emptive approach in the reduction of staff illness, sick leave and damage to indoor environments.
