Indoor air quality services

Potential air quality issues

You want your employees working in healthy and comfortable working conditions, to ensure job satisfaction, productivity, and health. The air quality in their working environment has an impact on these things. Serious issues with workplace air quality have even been linked with “sick building syndrome.”

Some of the most common problems with indoor air quality include the following:

  • poorly designed HVAC system or HVAC maintenance issues,
  • improper local ventilation to exhaust contaminants,
  • airtight energy efficient building retro-fits,
  • mould and fungal growth, and
  • outside contaminant infiltration.

SCS can help you identify and address these issues through a variety of indoor air quality services. Click below to e-mail about indoor air quality services.
