Modern way of life that made people spend more time indoors combined with the fact that indoor environments are by far more contaminated than outdoors have the consequence of drastic increase of allergies, respiratory diseases, asthma being most predominant and multiple other adverse effects on human health.
Average North American person spends around 22 hours daily indoors, making us more dependable on materials used to build and furbish our homes and offices, the manner in which they are constructed and maintained, and on HVAC systems supplying the air we breathe.
Flaws in any of these processes could affect our wellbeing and cause at least discomfort and in some cases acute or chronic effects. In last 20 years there has been a 75% increase in population suffering from asthma and one in four individuals are susceptible to some kind of allergens. Causes range from chemical, biological, fungal, bacterial and mechanical and come in all kind of shapes and states. Unfortunately children and elderly are the most vulnerable categories of population.
Technology advancement and introduction of new, more efficient and effective materials are making buildings more air tight and energy efficient, but at the same time more sensitive to any flaws or deficiencies.
If there is known contaminant in the environment that needs to be measured for concentration or there is a suspicion of one existing let us find it out for you. Variety of indoor contaminants are known to cause following symptoms when entering or occupying enclosed space:
headache, sneezing, wheezing, difficulty breathing, runny nose, watery eyes, nausea, coughing, itching or sometimes even more serious medical conditions. They are defined as allergens and origin of these symptoms may be: biological, chemical or environmental. Some of the most common contaminates are: Mould, Bacteria, Odors, VOCs, Hazardous gases, Dust, Pests( body parts, excrements), Pets (dander, fur, feathers).
Indoor Air Quality is only one segment of the field termed as Indoor Environment Quality that includes environmental factors such as light, sound, vibrations, electromagnetism which could impact human well being in the similar way as the airborne contaminants.
Modern way of life that made people spend more time indoors combined with the fact that indoor environments are by far more contaminated than outdoors have the consequence of drastic increase of allergies, respiratory diseases, asthma being most predominant and multiple other detrimental effects on human health. Children and elderly are most vulnerable.
Some indoor spaces may not have sufficient quantity of fresh outdoor air rendering the feel of stale, stuffy and odorous environment with increased level of Carbon Dioxide and/or other contaminants. HVAC system deficiency or malfunction may cause some areas being poorly conditioned or not at all.
Detailed video inspection of the entire HVAC system will either provide evidence of systems integrity or detect any deficiency within. It will also provide evidence of possible contamination of the system.
Moisture mapping is process of measuring moisture levels of certain materials and drawing a map for easier visualisation of the affected areas and to serve as guide for remediation.
It is very important to accurately measure and record targeted parameter in order to determine its effect on humans and course of action for its removal or control.
That is why we use equipment from one of the most renown manufacturers in the field, and also regularly calibrate it to maintain its accuracy at all times.
Engineering degree guarantees proficient approach and attention to detail. Continuing education in the fields of Building science, HVAC systems, thermodynamics, microbiology and other related fields strengthen our determination to maintain unparalleled standards.
Indoor Environment Consultant Certification from American Council for Accredited Certification as an independent, third party body is based on experience and written exam. It is the most widely recognized certifications in the indoor air quality industry in North America.
Over 8 years of field experience in variety of investigations and testings both in residential and commercial/industrial environments.
We poses knowledge and experience and our goal is to use it to provide unparallel client service. Should you feel we failed in the field of commitment, we will offer a refund of our services.
As part of overall improvement of indoor air quality, adding energy cost reduction and prolonging useful life of HVAC equipment, we offer restoration of the same, mainly air handlers, from packaged Roof Top, large build-up commercial/industrial, to small condo heat pump designs.
We provide long term solutions for rusted and deteriorated components with particular focus on drain pans, poorly designed components and damaged insulation replacement.
We are using well proven materials and engineered methods. Improving heat exchange efficiency and airflow capacity is accomplished by pressure washing of one of the crucial components of any HVAC system, cooling, heating or condenser coils.
