Identifying the Source of Sick Building Syndrome or Building Related Illness
Sussex Environmental Consultants knows that the signs of building related illness or sick building syndrome are usually vague and inconsistent. Identifying the source of the problem can be difficult. However, conducting a thorough and professional indoor air quality assessment can determine the kind of preventable environmental issues that affect productivity, increase sick leave, and inflate medical costs.
An indoor air quality investigation from Sussex Environmental Consultants begins with a careful study of complaints and all physical aspects of the work environment. These initial studies help our staff identify the most likely causes of the reported symptoms. As we perform appropriate testing, SEC will keep you informed of the results at each phase. SEC’s Industrial Hygienist are able to identify problems linked to inadequate makeup air, structural issues, mold and mildew, chemical contaminants and pollutants, and bioaerosols.
