When an individual suspects a building related cause for an illness, they contact us.  We confirm the presence of common contaminants, locate the source and make recommendations for improvements.

Indoor environmental quality (IEQ) refers to the quality of a building’s environment in relation to the health and wellbeing of those who occupy space within it.  Clients are often concerned that they have symptoms or health conditions from exposures to contaminants in the buildings where they live or work. One reason for this concern is that their symptoms often get better when they are not in the building.

Indoor environments are highly complex and building occupants may be exposed to a variety of contaminants (in the form of gases and particles) from office machines, cleaning products, construction activities, carpets and furnishings, perfumes, cigarette smoke, water-damaged building materials, microbial growth (fungal, mold, and bacterial), insects, and outdoor pollutants. Other factors such as indoor temperatures, relative humidity, and ventilation levels can also affect how individuals respond to the indoor environment.

Understanding the sources of indoor environmental contaminants and controlling them can often help prevent or resolve building-related symptoms.
