Air quality in an oficce

Design, construction, and facility management professionals find themselves performing several different roles during the course of an upgrade, renovation, demolition, and/or an emergency response project, as well as general facility maintenance. Such individuals need to be knowledgeable enough to identify potential issues and recognize the appropriate professionals who can properly assist. As it pertains to moisture, mold, and indoor air quality (IAQ), there are several factors which may create issues in newly built structures, during construction and/or renovation, or ongoing facility maintenance. Identifying and being aware of those factors before they turn into issues is critical for all building management professionals to present a space that is safe and habitable, as well ensure that projects remain on budget and on schedule.

By the end of this webinar you will understand:

  • How moisture content is assessed in buildings, types of contaminated water, and restoration activities.
  • The different types of mold, health effects, and the investigation process.
  • The industry standards, government guidelines, and regulations.
  • Common indoor contaminants regarding installed materials, and the importance of product disclosure document review.
