Indoor Air Quality Services

Welcome to our site. The issues of indoor air quality, mold, water damage, and other indoor environmental issues can be complex, and poor indoor air quality, mold, and damp building conditions have been linked to a variety of health symptoms and even disease. The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated that, "dampness has been suggested to be a strong, consistent indicator for the risk of asthma and respiratory symptoms. The health risks of biological contaminants within the indoor environment could be addressed by considering dampness as the risk indicator."

 

The U.S. EPA 1990), ranked indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health. In 1997, the Presidential and Congressional Commission on Risk Assessment and Risk Management also found that indoor environmental pollution can pose a substantial environmental risk and advised EPA to address those risks. During the release of its report, the Commission chairman highlighted indoor environmental pollution as one of the greatest risks to human health.

 

Americans are concerned about their own health and the health of their children. Despite efforts by the EPA and other groups to conduct research on indoor environmental issues and to communicate the findings of that research, most Americans do not have a clear sense of the significant health risks caused by indoor pollution. They also do not know what they can do to reduce the risk for asthma, cancer, and other serious diseases caused by indoor pollutant exposure.

 

Children often experience higher exposures to environmental pollutants than adults, and certain individuals may be more vulnerable to indoor contaminants because of age, genetics, nutrition, metabolism, exposure levels, existing diseases, and other factors. For example, older people are at particular risk for adverse effects on the nervous and cardiovascular systems; asthmatics are more vulnerable to allergens and respiratory irritants; and people with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) and other immune deficiencies are more vulnerable to pneumonia, pathogenic yeasts, and other illnesses.
