Is Your Home or Building Making You Sick?

If your living or working space resembles the picture at left, the answer is definitely yes.

However, even if you can't really see anything, the answer still could be yes.  Mold, bacteria, and other contaminants can hide behind appliances, furniture, trim work, wallpaper, and even inside walls where you can't see them but they can still cause problems by invading the air you breathe.  
Some of the basic symptoms of potential Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) concerns are general allergy-type reactions such as runny nose, congestion, inflammation, coughing, and sneezing.

Troubleshooting for Sick Building Syndrome is our specialty. If you think there's a potential IAQ problem, the first thing we do is inspect the building and take initial air samples.  We'll analyze those in our own lab, determine what the potential issues are, and make recommendations for the next step.

We'll do the initial investigation, the chemical and biological monitoring, and evaluate the HVAC system design and efficiency to find where the problems are located.  We'll also tell you how to fix them.

Moisture, temperature, and a source of food are the prime ingredients for fungi growth.  A water leak left undiscovered for a month or more can create the right conditions for mold to take hold.
Each mold colony contains millions of spores and any kind of disturbance increases the chances of inhaling spores.
While we think of mushrooms growing in damp, dark places, with the the right conditions they can also grow on wallpaper, drywall, and carpet.
We can help make your home safe again!
