Understanding pollution & improving indoor air quality

We often neglect the importance of indoor air quality in Hong Kong as we all live busy lives in a tightly-packed city. However, did you know that indoor air pollution can be as much as 200-500% worse than outdoor air pollution?

Indoor air pollution is considered one of the five most important risks that can negatively harm our health and well-being.


The human body breathes up to approximately 22,000 times a day, which means that we consistently inhale approximately 45,000-75,000 contaminated particles per breath, such as:

  • Dust mites, microorganisms, pet dander, pollen

  • Smoke, dangerous bacteria, viruses, molds, fungi.

  • Deadly chemicals, household cleaning products and pesticides,

  • Ammonia, alcohol, formaldehyde...etc.

    Around us, thousands of different types of pollutants constantly fill the air that surround us. Although we can't see them, they do inevitably cause a variety of serious pollution problems and effects in any indoor environment. Over a long period of inhaling these toxic substances into our bodies, various diseases will arise as a result.

Want to know if your indoor air quality is healthy, or whether it is polluted by harmful substances?

We can provide IAQ testing services in HK. Our company uses high-tech class I medical laser detector meters to collect samples of pollutants in the air to assess the air immediately through our IAQ test for HK homes and workplaces.

Consider this, the number of pollutants in the air can range from 0.3 microns to 5 microns (the diameter of human hair is about 70 microns), and the finest, suspended particles with a diameter of 2.5 microns. When the indoor air pollution level index is high enough, we will even see haze outdoors when we breathe. These types of pollutants will accumulate over time in the trachea and lungs, carrying heavy metals, microplastics and carcinogens inside us, then as the blood circulates throughout our bodies, it can cause cardiovascular and circulatory diseases as a result, which will undoubtedly seriously harm our health, as well as the health of the those with us.


However, the most terrifying type of air pollutants actually come from the most subtle and invisible COVID-19 killer-virus (the new coronavirus is about 0.1 micron). The finer the pollutants, the harder they can be effectively captured. Although we cannot see them with our eyes, these pollutants are proven to be able to cause fatal infections or serious diseases over time. This can be seen as the ultimate culprit of many commonly seen diseases in our tightly-packed city lives.

Your Professional IAQ Company in Hong Kong

To conduct an IAQ test effectively, you must appoint a professional IAQ company in Hong Kong like us to help you. Healthway Hong Kong Ltd. is a reputable IAQ testing company with a long list of successful past cases and clients, and we only use high-tech indoor air quality monitors in Hong Kong to get the most accurate results, as well as through the expertise of our very own IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) experts.


Generally speaking, electric purifiers can only process suspended particles of 2.5 microns. Once the indoor air is contaminated with different types of viruses and pollutants, high-efficiency medical-grade air sterilizers (which can treat pollutants of less than 0.1 microns) must be used to effectively improve the indoor air quality and to reduce the pollution.

Invisible dust mites permeate the air around us, and there are millions of harmful substances in the tiny dust. Terrible, harmful mites and their excrements that can only be seen with a microscope. It enters the human body through breathing and causes negative effects to one’s health. The unfortunate reality is, every home and office will have these dust mites. It is paramount to conduct regular and professional indoor air quality monitoring in Hong Kong.
On average, 90% of our lives are spent indoors, and we breathe in more than 36 pounds of harmful polluted air every day into our system, which causes a variety of harmful effects to our health in the long run. Therefore, it is very important to find reliable, professional ways to assess our environment, like through an IAQ test, and effectively improve the indoor air quality within our Hong Kong homes, workplaces, as well as public places.
