Overview

This webinar will consider the following:

  • The importance of indoor air quality is almost always dismissed within our society with its ‘out of sight, out of mind’ approach.
  • This outlook is carried through many professions due to a severe lack of awareness, knowledge and education and is causing a detrimental effect on the health of our population, not just in the UK but worldwide.
  • The sources to poor IAQ are obvious to see damp & mould infested buildings.
  • Man-made building materials mixed with toxic carcinogenic chemicals.
  • Airtight buildings with a lack of adequate ventilation, to prevent the inhalation of toxic chemicals and obstructs airflow to be able to remove these chemicals.
  • Domestic cleaning products full of carcinogenic chemicals and so much more including the effect of climate change on our indoor environments.
  • The solution to better IAQ is quite simple to say the least but putting these solutions into practice is the main issue in many cases.

Kristine Reilly-Blake

She is extremely passionate about IAQ and the effect that is has on health and 100% believes that health begins at home. Working together with scientists, housing developers, architects and other IAQ professionals worldwide she is being given the tools to prove the link between poor housing and health.

Kristine's eldest daughter suffers with severe asthma where her symptoms were exacerbated to an almost death situation on many occasions due to poor IAQ which was of no fault of her own and was dismissed by professionals on her journey to ensure that her daughter had a better quality of life.

Her vision is for the governing of domestic IAQ, to raise awareness and educate about the health impact of poor IAQ and the detrimental effect that it has on health, to make our homes and buildings safe for occupation.
