Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) & Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ)


IAQ is concerned with the nature and quality of indoor air and how this impacts on our daily lives.

As awareness grows on the health concerns perpetrated by indoor environments; poor building ventilation and soft flooring management are the focus points linked to a wide range of ailments.     Evidence shows us up to 50% of all illnesses are caused by unhealthy indoor pollution.

Polluted indoor air also impacts on system and asset efficiency, life-cycles and risks (fire, critical breakdowns, occupational disease etc).

Legislation and duty of care requirements are on companies in relation to their responsibilities to address biological contamination inside buildings making it so vital to maintain clean, acceptable and healthy IAQ levels.


Only highly trained technicians should investigate, rectify and mitigate IAQ triggers and issues because air conditioning systems harbour dangerous contaminants with the potential to cross-contaminate an entire building and repeatedly degrade indoor air quality.

Control air pollutants at the source with proper air filtering, sound ventilation strategy, regular servicing and maintenance of all HVAC units and using superior biocide products throughout any decontamination processes.


We analyse IEQ by carefully assessing, testing and sampling air and surfaces.   

Our Mycology testing and reporting is performed independently by the CSIRO to ensure accuracy and transparency across all client documentation.    Formal IAQ reporting (both verbal and documented) outlines the most optimal remediation solution and works for your indoor built environment issue.


HBS Australia are industry-leaders operating to the code of practice in soft flooring standards Australia-New Zealand AS/NZS 3733-1995, and USA standards, guidelines for mould remediation IICRC 520.  Water Restoration IICRC S500 and NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaning Assn.) in the USA.

 HBS are certified with the IAQA (Indoor Air Quality Association) in the US;  the governing body promoting uniform standards, practices and procedures; and members of the forum group representing next generation innovations, technology and ideas globally on the emerging fields of IAQ and IEQ.  

Our managers are qualified with Environmental Fungi Certificate of Mycology from Murdoch University and align with IAQ professionals on development of the protocols, adopting the latest research, updated methodologies and training.
