Indoor Air Quality Assessment

If you believe indoor and outdoor conditions have endangered your employees, seek professional help with an indoor air quality (IAQ) assessment.

Poor indoor air quality can damage the health of your workers and cost millions in repairs, draining valuable resources from your business. Multiple studies have shown a correlation between a low filtration rate and decreased employee alertness and performance. Short-term and long-term health effects range from headaches and allergies to increased risk and intensity of lung cancer.

Other complications from exposure to indoor pollution can involve:
Left unchecked, natural causes of indoor air quality problems can spread and cause property damage. When people can trace their symptoms to a specific location, they have building-related illnesses and may have grounds for legal action.

A decrease in indoor air quality can be due to outdoor environmental factors, such as nearby construction, heavy traffic, or local fires. The outdoor air can enter the building through open doors and windows, cracks in the building envelope, and an ill-fitting or improperly maintained heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system. Problems with the HVAC system inhibit the filtration of mold, dust, asbestos, and harmful bacteria inside the building.

Indoor air quality assessments determine the presence of harmful contamination and irritants in the workplace. An IAQ assessment consists of a baseline survey of building occupants and an evaluation of common complaints.
Testing Capability
Applied Technical Services provides IAQs by professionals who specialize in air quality testing and HVAC evaluation.

A baseline survey identifies the complaints and concerns of building occupants for both indoor sources, such as renovations, water damage, and cleaning materials, and outdoor sources, including heavy motor vehicle traffic and industrial stacks.

ATS pursues common complaints by taking air and bulk samples and testing for volatile organic compounds (VOC), mold, bacteria, etc. Additionally, we offer HVAC evaluation for major parameters: thermostat operation, airflow, and variable-air-volume terminal performance.

To prevent future issues, schedule an indoor air quality test with ATS:
