Is Your Work Place or Home Making You Sick?

In a healthy Indoor environment, the surroundings contribute to productivity, comfort, and a sense of health and well being for building occupants. Good air quality is an important component of a healthy indoor environment.

Failure to respond promptly and effectively to indoor air quality (IAQ) problems can have consequences such as:

  • Increased health problems
  • Reduced Productivity
  • Accelerated deterioration of furnishings and equipment
  • Strained relations between workers and management
  • Negative publicity
  • Potential liabilities

It clearly pays to keep office, school or industrial workers at work and productive, rather than sick and at home. Air Tamarack provides many services to help you with IAQ problems. They include:

  • IAQ building evaluations to identify sources of indoor air contaminants
  • Sampling and analysis of air contaminants such as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and volatile organic compounds (VOC’s)
  • Detailed evaluations of heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.
  • Sampling and analysis of mold or microorganisms such as Legionella Bacteria
  • Developing on-going proactive IAQ programs
  • Litigation support and expert testimony

Our IAQ staff includes professionals in HVAC engineering, microbiology, industrial hygiene and building science. Our staff actively participates in national societies like ASHRAE, AIHA, and ACGIH which establish industry guidelines.

Air Tamarack’s approach to building investigations follows the methods developed by NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) in their publication “Guidance for Indoor Air Quality Investigations.”

Air Tamarack has conducted over 1000 air quality investigations in commercial buildings, schools, industry, and homes. We have found 6 major sources of concern.

  • Microbiological Contamination (unacceptable growth of bacteria, fungi, and mold)
  • Temperature and Humidity at unacceptable levels
  • Inside Contamination (copy machines, printing operations, etc.)
  • Outside Contamination (vehicle exhaust or re-entrainment of previously exhausted contaminants)
  • Inadequate Ventilation
  • Building Structure Contamination (new materials and products releasing contaminants when first installed)

Building occupants want their building to be pleasant, safe, and attractive, with maximum use of their space. Air Tamarack can help to make this happen.
