INDOOR AIR QUALITY

Recent studies have indicated that, in many cases, indoor air can be more polluted than outdoor air. Indoor air pollution is caused by mold and bacteria, chemicals, and indoor allergens. Indoor air quality issues have become a primary concern for institutions such as schools, universities, and health care facilities. Armed with the most effective equipment available, our scientists can assess your areas of concern, provide sampling and measurements, and make recommendations based on findings.  Responding quickly to indoor air quality issues is also part of our services. We understand the sensitivity of occupants to odors, mold, or chemicals. We provide 24-hour emergency response services, and we can secure a specialty subcontractor on behalf of our clients or assist with selection.
