Indoor Air Quality Sampling Services

The Impact of Poor Air Quality

Recent studies by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have discovered that pollutant levels inside can be two to five times higher than that of outdoor air. Repeated exposure to poor indoor air quality can cause numerous negative health effects.

Health Effects of Poor Air Quality:

  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Itchy nose
  • Scratchy throat
  • Nasal congestion
  • Coughing
  • Wheezing
  • Asthma
  • Cancer
  • Several infectious diseases

Indoor Allergens

Sensitivity to indoor allergens poses significant health problems to a large portion of our population. At Garrett McKenzie, we understand that identifying and understanding the nature of these allergens is essential in minimizing repeated exposure and reducing resulting health problems.

Allergens Include:

  • Mold
  • Dust mites
  • Cockroaches
  • Mice
  • Household pets
  • Formaldehyde
  • VOC’s
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Combustible gases
  • Ozone

Minimizing Exposure

Often some of these exposures occur in work environments, schools, daycare centers, after care programs, retirement communities and nursing homes which create potential occupational risks. While employees cannot reduce their exposure by avoiding their workplace, Garrett McKenzie offers environmental assessments, indoor air quality testing and sampling and investigations to help limit these exposures.
