Indoor Air Quality in the News

Concern for the environment has to include concern for the conditions you live in. The air you breathe indoors is crucial to the continued good health of you and your family.

That simple fact is getting more and more recognition in that outside world as builders and other stakeholders include the factors affecting indoor air quality in all designs. That focus on indoor air quality includes both new construction and older building retrofits.

  • A Burlington area school recently opened; with an emphasis on bringing in and circulating fresh air incorporated into the design.
  • Many people still love older buildings for their architectural charm and features but they are also a source of continued problems. Projects in the Toronto and Windsor regions have developed ways of renovating so-called wartime housing with a view towards improving indoor air quality among a number of measures.

In Your Home Too
In urban environments, we’re often tempted to keep the closed in any case in the belief we’re protecting ourselves from air pollution that comes from roads and traffic nearby. In reality, we’re often closing ourselves in to  the bad air that comes from a variety of sources.

At ESG, we can help you maintain optimal indoor air quality with testing for the following elements:

  • Carbon monoxide or CO – the silent, deadly killer. We can test for levels your home alarm system can’t detect.
  • Silica – a fine dust and designated substance under the Occupational Health and Safety Act which is often produced during construction, demolition or renovations
  • VOCs or Volatile Organic Compounds that can evaporate into the air and which can come from household cleaning products, building products and others
  • HVAC Systems – your heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems can become a major source of contaminants in your home

The air you breathe is essential to good health for you and your family. Let us give you peace of mind – call the Environmental Services Group for a quote.
