Indoor Air Quality
There 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, electromagnetic fields (EMF) and radio frequency radiation (RF) and a wide variety of other toxins and chemicals. 

Who is Affected

Indoor air pollutants cause significant damage to health globally. 

Poor indoor air quality affects people from all walks of life. Affected persons include both genders, all ages, those unborn and soon-to-be-born, homemakers, stay-at-home moms, teachers and school children, veterans, retirees, disabled individuals, workers of all levels and skills, farmers, professionals, owners of businesses large and small, and all degrees of affluence. 

In short, anyone who spends time indoors is at risk.
