Indoor Air Quality Services
What you can’t see can hurt you. Our homes and offices are filled with allergens and toxins. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that our indoor air is 5 times more toxic than our outdoor air. In some cases, indoor air is 100 times as toxic as outdoor air. It’s hard to believe, considering all the pollution generated on your daily commute to work. Most people think that by locking themselves indoors they are safer. Technology has afforded us the opportunity to construct air tight homes and offices. However, if a proper ventilation system is not in place, these environments can soon become toxic.

Most people tend to think that isolating themselves from others will keep them safe during times of mass outbreaks, when in actuality, quarantine may do more harm than good.
