Indoor Air Quality is critical for good Health.
 
Poor indoor air quality can adversely affect our health and our environment with a significant cost to health, business and the economy. There are estimates that the cost of poor indoor air quality in Canada may be as high as $12 billion per year.
 
Ensuring that your home/building’s air quality is healthy has become a critical aspect of overall health and work place safety. Air pollutants can cause health problems such as sore eyes, burning in the nose and throat, headaches, or fatigue.
