Poor Indoor air quality is not only hazardous to our health but also hazardous to the economic life of our businesses. Drops in productivity, increased health-care costs and absenteeism due to sick leave, are all problems that we don’t want to deal with.
“Sick Building Syndrome”: A Growing Concern in All Workplaces
When working within pollutant-laden enclosed spaces, many employees develop symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, burning eyes, and upper respiratory complaints just to name a few. Over time, though, the severity steadily gets worse as exposure is prolonged. Reaction to indoor pollutants usually occurs one to two hours after they arrive to work and last three to four hours after they get home from work.
These pollutants at high levels cause obvious and immediate effects. At low levels, symptoms start out small and gradually get worse. Human health problems range from simple irritations to long- term problems like asthma, migraine and even deadly diseases like cancer.
By far the worst known pollutants are the ones that you cannot see, but they are everywhere. At IAQ, we take the issue of indoor air quality seriously. The scope of our services ranges from proactive indoor air quality investigations designed to identify IAQ problems before they occur, to source and species identification and solutions to indoor air quality problems.
