Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

Many companies investigate IAQ complaints as they arise but few monitor IAQ indicators regularly. Typically, indoor air quality problems are caused by lack of temperature and humidity, lack of air circulation (stuffiness or stale air), biological contaminants, or chemical contaminants (chemicals emitted from materials in the workspace). Occupants in the building may complain of being tired, suffering from allergies or worse yet coming down with serious illnesses. The spread of harmful bacteria such as Flu, Strep, E Coli, MSRA and other harmful airborne germs can be spread by poor Indoor Air Quality.

When confronted with indoor air quality complaints, the goal is to identify the cause and combat them.

Basic indoor air quality parameters including, temperature, humidity, and CO2 measurements will be taken to evaluate thermal environmental conditions. Other measurements including testing for carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, and formaldehyde will be taken. Air flow characteristics and pressure relationships are also evaluated.

All data is entered into a report and a plan is devised to correct the problems determined through our investigation.
