Air Quality Assessments
On average we spend 90% of our time indoors and therefore good indoor air quality is essential for our health and wellbeing.
Creating good air quality in a building can be a complex subject. Not only do good cleaning and maintenance practices of floor coverings and furnishings contribute to good indoor air quality, but also building design, choices of building materials and finishes, and regular maintenance regimes on heating and ventilation systems.
An assessment of the built environment for air quality takes many factors into consideration. Everything from the buildings location and surrounding environment external of the building, to the age, quality of building materials and the overall building design is factored into the analysis.
Air quality factors such as mould exposure, can be a big issue in many buildings and cause a huge array of symptomatic illnesses, such as asthma, respiratory irritations, rashes, headaches, fatigue, compromised immune system, and the list goes on. Quite often the root of the cause, mould, can go unaccounted for and therefore never dealt with.
Other air quality factors may include carbon dioxide & carbon monoxide levels, gas leaks, ultrafine particle count, relative humidity levels, temperature, etc. These parameters can be obtained onsite instantaneously using specific analysis tools and instruments.
If laboratory assessments are required for sampling mould, air, dust, VOCs or other pollutants, we use NATA approved laboratories. (National Association of Testing Authorities) All results will be supplied in the following report.
We offer some different package options in air quality assessments. Please check them out here.
