Project Details

Project Name: Provided IAQ Assessment
Country: USA
Description: Provided an IAQ assessment of a local elementary school where building occupants had complained of headaches, smells, and respiratory problems. The survey included air constituent, air contaminant, formaldehyde, and organic monitoring. The survey was conducted at various times during the week and under various conditions of weather and activities. Also, inspections of the HVAC systems were conducted to identify any buildup from dust, mold, or mildew and to identify possible malfunctions in the systems. The survey concluded that no air constituents or air contaminants were outside recommended EPA/OSHA/NIOSH limits. Several room HVAC units were found to be malfunctioning in such a way as to limit the fresh air intake of the systems. Formaldehyde and organic monitoring conducted showed no detectable levels of contaminants. Recommendations included a full maintenance check of HVAC systems including returns and exhausts, balancing of temperature between rooms sharing an HVAC system, and reporting of testing results to the building occupants. Two further recommendations included the possible increase in air flow in particular rooms and the inspection of the carpet in several areas for mold and mildew buildup under the carpet from water damage.
