Since Canadians spend 90% of our life indoors, the health and quality of the air we breathe is critical. The majority of indoor pollutants are invisible and often don’t produce a noticeable smell. Good indoor air quality should also not be confused with good cleanliness or general hygiene. What looks like a clean home or office can have numerous air quality issues that are difficult to fix if they are not properly identified.
Poor air quality can be caused by any one of the following problems, according to the NIOSH:
- Inadequate ventilation
- Humidity and temperature
- Inside contamination
- Outside contamination
- Microbial contamination
- New building materials
Because it is nearly impossible to detect indoor air pollutants by simple sight or smell, the right skill and equipment is critical to quickly and correctly identifying the problem. 4 Elements has both the latest technology and experience to detect and identify indoor pollutants. You may be surprised at how some simple measures such as using an air purifier or sealing off certain areas can result in vastly improved air quality.
Let 4 Elements inspect your building and identify what is in your air and what the source of any concerns might be. After all, it’s the air you breathe, it should be healthy so you and those around you are too!
