are many factors
that affect indoor air quality. Our primary focus is on the contaminants in water-damaged buildings. These contaminants include molds, mycotoxins, volatile organic compounds, microbial particulates, proteins, galactomannans, endotoxins and bacteria.
These water damage
events can occur in connection with floods, hurricanes, construction defects, roof leaks, foundation problems, plumbing leaks, appliance leaks, condensation, or as a result of buildings materials that can become wet during storage, transportation and construction.
Some of the additional factors that affect indoor air quality include radon, lead, asbestos, pesticides, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, cleaning products, off-gassing from carpets, furniture and paint, air fresheners, fragrances, and a wide variety of other toxins and chemicals.
