Preventing Future IAQ Problems during Construction Projects in Puerto Rico
Zimmetry Environmental provides inspection and consulting services to prevent mold and other indoor air quality problems during construction.
Taking a proactive approach to indoor air quality during a building’s construction can often pinpoint future problems that can be easily addressed to prevent them from becoming major problems once the building is occupied.
There are many factors that take place during the construction of a home or building that could potentially cause future indoor air quality (IAQ) problems for building occupants. These may include everything from the materials selected for the project and construction techniques to how building materials are stored.
A major issue often revolves around water damage and mold growth. Many building materials can support the growth of mold when there is moisture or humidity. This same moisture and humidity can also increase off-gassing of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from building materials and furnishing in some circumstances. In addition, the design and placement of a building’s HVAC system can have a long-term impact on a structure’s indoor air quality.
To help ensure that the IAQ of a building is not compromised during construction activities, Zimmetry Environmental offers onsite construction inspections, air and material testing, and consultations. These services are offered throughout Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.
“Taking a proactive approach to indoor air quality during a building’s construction can often pinpoint future problems that can be easily addressed to prevent them from becoming major problems once the building is occupied,” said Harry Pena, President of Zimmetry Environmental. “These services are available for all phases of construction. Zimmetry also offer baseline testing services for new buildings that can help to verify acceptable air quality prior to occupancy. This service not only provides scientifically based information about the quality of the building’s air, but also can help to protect those involved with the design and construction process from potential future litigation.”
