Certified Indoor Air Technicians

Why you need a Certified Indoor Air Technician.

Air quality Technicians work to identify conditions within a building’s atmosphere that contribute to what is commonly called toxic building syndrome.  These conditions are caused by a host of issues commonly related to mold, moisture, formaldehydes in the air, particulate along with odors, mold and germs.  A qualified IAQ technician has gone through significant training to recognize the causes of toxic building systems and the controls needed to eradicate those pathogens using a variety of testing measures and specialized equipment needed to remove the toxins within the environment.

There are many sources of indoor air pollution. These can include but are not limited to: Fuel-burning combustion appliances, Tobacco products, Building materials and furnishings.

Indoor Air pollutants are caused by sources as diverse as: Deteriorated asbestos-containing insulation, newly installed flooring, upholstery or carpet.  The toxic sources can include:
Cabinetry or furniture made of certain pressed wood products,
Products for household cleaning and maintenance, personal care, or hobbies
Central heating and cooling systems and humidification devices with excess moisture

The relative importance of any single source depends on how much of a given pollutant it emits and how hazardous those emissions are. In some cases, factors such as how old the source is and whether it is properly maintained are significant.

Some sources, such as building materials, furnishings and products like air fresheners, can release pollutants more or less continuously. Other sources, related to activities like smoking, cleaning, redecorating or doing hobbies release pollutants intermittently. Unvented or malfunctioning appliances or improperly used products can release sometimes dangerous levels of pollutants indoors.

Our XI Safety Certified Air Technicians are trained and certified so you can trust when they visit the toxic building they will inspect and recommend advanced  green technology and protocols that will  solve the problem.
