Indoor Air Quality

apex_industrial-hygiene-04

Concerns about indoor air quality are on the rise. Studies have shown that symptoms of “sick building syndrome” affect 10 to 25 million workers in more than one million buildings across the United States. Due to the impact of health, comfort, and productivity on building occupants, indoor air quality is a growing issue among property owners, businesses, building managers, and tenants.

Apex has more than 20 years of experience with indoor air quality investigations, monitoring, analysis, corrective action plans, and training. We have provided both emergency response, and proactive indoor air quality solutions for a number of diverse environments. Some of our notable works include office buildings, schools, manufacturing plants, utilities, hospitals, museums, restaurants, retail stores, and military facilities. Apex’s indoor air quality team of experts includes industrial hygienists, mechanical engineers, toxicologists, chemists, and microbiologists employing the most current science and technologies.

In June 2013, they were chosen as one of our Environmental on-call companies that we use regularly. Their quality of work has been exemplary. They are responsive and take on projects no matter the scope or size. I have come to rely on Apex's professional, articulate, knowledgeable and reliable.
