- "Log reduction" is a mathematical term (as is "log increase") used to show the relative number of live microbes eliminated from a surface by disinfecting or cleaning.
- Walk-throughs are a practical learning experience for staff that builds awareness, confidence and skills – essential elements of a sustainable IAQ program.

- Four elements - sources, the HVAC system, pollutant pathways, and occupants - are involved in the development of IAQ problems.
- The benefits of carpet are forgotten or ignored in the face of perceived hazards.
- There is a widespread perception that carpet cannot be kept clean (sanitary) and that because of its inability to be kept clean, carpet contributes significantly to the deterioration of indoor environmental quality, especially leading to unhealthy indoor air quality.
