Some Good Reasons to Test Air Quality in Your Building:
Contaminated Ventilation Systems
When ventilation systems are not properly cleaned, dust, debris, mold, and other accumulations may be distributed throughout the building. Do not mistake bad air emanating from the ventilation system with structural issues, which require more elaborate solutions. Inspect your ventilation system today.
As institutions, age, and changes in management take hold, it is not always clear what the current status of a building is. Inspect for humidity and airborne mold to shed light on the unknown.
Older buildings have very likely been built using asbestos as a fire retardant. Now that asbestos has been identified as a major health risk, we must pay close attention decaying materials, water damaged structure to ensure dangerous asbestos fibers don’t become released into the air, causing a health hazard.
Radon Gas Accumulation
Radon is a highly toxic, odorless, colorless gas that manifests from beneath the building that can accumulate indoors, creating a health risk. Especially toxic for smokers
