What Does CSC Do?

Clearing the Air About Indoor Air Quality


  • Do you feel sick when you are at work, but the symptoms go away when you leave work?
  • Are your tenants complaining of poor indoor air quality?
  • Do you smell an odor that causes you to be uncomfortable?

The air we breathe is as precious as life itself. And yet, every day millions of people are subjected to indoor air pollutants that not only make them sick, they may even be life threatening. Naturally, this has become an important quality-of-life issue that has resulted in millions of dollars of litigation.

What is "Good Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ)" or what does CSC verify in your building? If needed, CSC can verify that your building is:

  • As good as, or better than, outdoors
  • Comfortable for 80% or more of the occupants
    • No offensive odors reported
    • The temperature is acceptable
    • The humidity is acceptable
  • Free of known hazards at concentrations of concern, including:
    • Chemical contaminants
    • Biological contaminants
    • Dust/particulate matter
    • Energy (Noise, UV, EMF, Microwave, etc.)
  • Does not violate laws, standards, or accepted guidelines (i.e. ASHRAE, NESHAPS, OSHA, JCAHO, etc.)

At CSC, we are experts at determining what causes unacceptable indoor environmental quality. For example, we have diagnosed buildings that do not "breathe properly", do not provide enough fresh air through the heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system, were made with harmful synthetic materials, or simply were too hot or too humid. New reasons for indoor air problems are being discovered all the time.

We know that a thorough inspection is an important first step. This includes both a visual walk-through of the building and then a careful measuring of pollutant levels utilizing on-site diagnostic instruments. Once we have determined any and all real or potential sources of contaminants, we will devise an abatement plan and maintenance program that will ensure that occupants of the building always have clean air to breathe.
