Good indoor air quality will enhance any office environment. However, poor indoor air quality can lead to a range of issues that should be avoided and indeed can lead to major escalations.

Our Indoor air quality testing, monitoring and assessment services usually start by doing visual inspections of the premises or areas to be surveyed. If permitted, we will also question individuals expressing complaints to further identify their symptoms and the frequency of on-set. The usual items to be reviewed will include:
- Observation of potential sources of airborne chemical contamination (e.g. engines, chemical processes, neighboring facilities, construction etc).
- Inspection of layout and distribution of air supplies to the occupied spaces.
- Inspection of the condition of the HVAC systems and accessible components, such as filters, condensate drip trays, heating and cooling coils, air intakes, air supply and return grilles and accessible duct work etc.
- Observation for evidence of water ingress, excessive moisture or microbial growth.
- Contamination sources near HVAC and air intakes and returns.
Our basic indoor air quality testing and assessment survey covers:
Temperature, relative humidity, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide, hydrogen sulphide, formaldehyde, airborne bacteria, fungi, yeast and moulds, airborne particles and air movement tests. Results are measured against current standards, regulations and guidelines.
A formally written report is then produce to confirm whether the indoor air quality testing and assessment of the occupied space indicates a requirement for improvement or whether there is any significant risk to occupant health or safety.
However, if needed we can go that step further and conduct very specific VOC analysis, gas analysis and duct work deposit thickness testing etc as required.
