Client Testimonial

  • Residential Cleaning & Disinfection Services

    "Thanks again for the super professional service, your guys attitude and manners around my house and family were remarkable. I am not an easy customer but tonight I am surely a very happy one!"

  • Professional and Courteous Service

    Please thank your team for their hard work.

    They were professional and courteous and left the apartment cleaner than it was before! I look forward to contacting IAQ again for any aircon work!

    Thanks again.

  • The team just left about 10 minutes ago. Everything went very well- very professional. They were here early and had already checked in with the front office to get badges. Everything was left very clean after and they were very professional and efficient. I'm really happy- thank you.

  • I spoke with my husband who was here during the cleaning and he had nothing but good things to say about the your team!

    He said they arrived promptly and were very thorough from what he could see, both from inside the condo as well as going outside to the connecting unit. He was very impressed with their professionalism.

    Thank you very much !

  • A pest control product too

    Initially the first thing we noticed was those pesky mosquitoes suddenly disappeared from the office. We asked the makers if GermXit® had anything to do with this and found out that mosquitoes don't like Tea Tree Oil, it repeals them, so that was an added bonus. Clean air and no more mosquitoes.

  • Better than we thought !

    When we moved to a new office, everyone started to get sick. We asked for the air conditioners to be cleaned but that didn't seem to help. So we had GermXit® installed and hoped that would do the trick.  Over the next few months the sickness levels dropped and the staff started to comment that they hadn't had a cold or flu for a long time. Some of the staff have now bought GermXit® for their home too.

    Thanks GermXit®, it really works.

Sources of Pollution

Cities contribute pollution from many sources, including factory smokestacks and wastewater; car exhaust; liquid leaking out of landfills; sewage treatment plant leakages and released gases; and residences. Pollution from rural and forest lands includes crop fertilizers in stormwater runoff; smoke from field burning and forest fires; blowing dust; soil erosion from logging; and acid and chemicals in stormwater runoff from mining areas. Pollution that enters air, soil and water can continue to spread even long after the sources are stopped.

Persistence of Environmental Pollution

Soluble or volatile pollutants may degrade when exposed to air or microbes in soil or groundwater. Other pollutants move with groundwater in the subsurface as particles or in a solution. “Hydrophobic” pollutants repel water and are held in the ground because they are attracted to soil or sediment particles, making them difficult and costly to clean up. They can “persist” in the environment and move through the food chain from soil to food to people, or from sediment to fish to people.

Cleaning Up Pollution

Removing the biggest sources of pollution could include, for example, more complete treatment of industrial wastewater or stormwater that carries fertilizers and road pollutants to reduce the amount of pollution entering streams and the ocean. Many technologies can be used to remove pollutants from soil and water. For example, charcoal filters can remove contaminants; certain chemicals can neutralize or bond with pollutants; microorganisms can be used to break down chemicals; and certain plants can be used to extract or break down pollutants. These technologies can be combined to make cleanup more effective.

Curbing Sources of Pollution

Part of reversing the effects of pollution requires the government and individuals to embrace efforts to reduce waste and ensure resource sustainability. Recycling and changes in product packaging can reduce how much waste is generated and placed in landfills. Alternative chemicals can be used by industries as well as homeowners to reduce the toxicity of chemicals that wind up in wastewater. Using alternative energy sources can reduce the amount of fossil fuels that are burned and the toxicity of air emissions.
