Indoor Air Quality
A safe environment for your employees includes good indoor air quality. This can be a challenge depending on the business that you’re in. Poor indoor air quality can impact absentee rates, cause medical issues and reduce employee productiveness.
Picking the correct Industrial Hygienist for your specific testing needs is critical in narrowing down the types of testing needed to identify contaminants within the workplace. Using a Certified Indoor Environmental Consultant (CIEC) and Certified Microbial Consultant (CMC) is a step in the right direction in determining the potential contaminants and performing the correct testing to identify the issues causing distress to your employees. Working with a CIEC/CMC can help identify problems quickly while having the resources to provide long-term solutions to remediate the conditions causing distress in the workplace.
When excessive moisture accumulates indoors, mold growth often follows. If the moisture problem is not corrected mold will gradually damage building materials and furnishings. Exposure to mold has also been linked to potential health problems for people in the space where mold exists.
Not only does the mold need to be remediated, the source of the moisture intrusion needs to be identified in order to prevent future mold growth. A Council Certified Microbial Consultant and Council Certified Indoor Environmental Consultant will determine if a mold problem exists, identify and remove the source of moisture causing the mold growth and remediate the mold intrusion with testing to verify that the mold has been properly remediated.
A healthy environment free of mold helps protect the well-being of employees and your real estate investment.
