Indoor Air Quality Management and Assessment
Many of the conservation measures of the 1970’s served to “tighten” buildings in effort to reduce energy loss. Some of the unwanted side effects were a reduction in fresh make-up air and an increase in indoor air pollutants such as carbon dioxide, chemicals released from off-gassing synthetic building materials and furnishings, and microbial contaminants, among others.

Lead is a cumulative toxic substance that can be absorbed into the body through inhalation or ingestion. Once inside the body, lead accumulates in the blood, bones, and vital organs – including kidneys, brain, and liver. Lead exposure can lead to seizures, coma, and even death.

Radon Testing and Consulting Services
Radon is a colorless, odorless radioactive gas that can occur naturally in the outdoor environment. Under certain circumstances, this gas can enter the indoor environment and potentially increase the risk of cancer from elevated exposure. Epidemiological studies have shown a clear link between breathing high concentrations of radon and incidence of lung cancer. Radon is a contaminant that affects indoor air quality worldwide.
