Indoor Air Quality Testing
Indoor air quality testing can prevent breathing air contaminated with chemicals or microbiological agents (such as molds and bacteria) can trigger allergic reactions. These reactions include asthma, as well as sinus infections, headaches, coughing, nose bleeds, and eye and throat irritation. More serious complications may include chronic fatigue, loss of balance and memory, irritability and difficulty speaking.
OEHS, Inc. specializes in identifying and designing methods to eliminate these agents that cause these types of health problems. Indoor air quality is often related to building issues such as the type and upkeep of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system; and the materials used in the building design or the remodeling process.
Because so many illnesses are related to the physical aspects of a building, they are commonly referred to as sick building syndrome. However, these types of issues are divided into three sub categories: sick building syndrome, building related illness, and mass psychogenic illness.
