Indoor Air Quality

Good indoor air quality is essential, as is testing and investigation in order to achieve or maintain it. We do both, and we do it often, as common synthetic construction materials and finishing products can sometimes release unwanted compounds into the environment. While they may not be toxic, these compounds can affect the health of occupants, and may result in diminished energy levels and productivity. We also conduct testing for the presence of fungus and mould, isolating sources and devising site-specific remediation plans.

Other ways we assist, guide and advise:

  • Reviewing and evaluating occupant concerns and activities
  • Evaluating the overall ventilation effectiveness through carbon dioxide mapping
  • Assessing the design, operation, and maintenance of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems
  • Measuring temperature, humidity, air pressure, air velocity, and carbon monoxide
  • Examining the building for contaminant sources (both indoor and outdoor)
  • Preparing a detailed report on the source of the problem and recommendations
  • Conducting microbiological testing to determine the presence of fungus
  • Conducting annual or bi-annual Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) surveys to analyze control measures
