Indoor Air Quality in 2018

 

Introduction to Indoor Air Quality
Harry M. Neill

It is spring and with the warmer weather and allergens in the air, air quality can become a concern. So today, I’d like to share some information about Indoor Air Quality. Indoor Air Quality surveys are your best choice when you are made aware of Indoor Air complaints. 1Source's approach is very successful in identifying problems and providing effective recommendations to correct problems and provide acceptable indoor air quality to building occupants. The professionals at 1Source understand interviewing techniques, and how to address group and community concerns.

Please feel free to e-mail me and we can set aside some time to discuss how we can assist you with any Indoor Air Quality Survey concerns or questions you may have for your company.

Sincerely,
Harry M. Neill, CIH Vice President,
Mold and Indoor Air Quality Services
