Indoor Air Quality Investigations

The world has become an increasingly complex place as people are exposed to a growing array of potentially harmful chemicals, heavy metals, organic compounds, as well as bacteria, fungi, and other causative agents —at home, in the workplace, or in the environment.

At Rimkus, our engineers, toxicologists, industrial hygienists, and occupational health experts offer a comprehensive approach to evaluating air quality and the potential impact on human health and the environment.

Our team has decades of experience in the evaluation indoor air contaminants and the possible human health impacts involving residential homes, commercial buildings, educational facilities, hospitals, medical facilities and industrial and manufacturing plants.

Our air quality experience includes the development of air monitoring networks, as well as data gathering and analysis to determine the possible human impact from related to asbestos, carbon monoxide, mold, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, foam insulation, second-hand smoke, legionella bacterium, lead, and mercury contamination, as well as sewage-related pathogens.

Legionella Investigation

Legionella bacterium contamination has been on the rise across the United States. Contaminated drinking water, infrastructure, and plumbing systems can evade water treatment systems and create a human health hazard. Rimkus has the qualified and experienced professionals that can identify problem areas and set forth the proper remediation protocols.
