Air quality assessment and treatment

Preventing Sick Building Syndrome

Maintaining and improving air quality and hygiene is essential for buildings where people live and work. In artificial environments; where air temperature and flow is controlled via heating and ventilation systems, air handling and air conditioning units; bacteria, unwanted particles and allergens can be a problem, affecting the efficiency and safe running of plant, while causing health issues for building occupants known as ‘Sick Building Syndrome’ (SBS).

Guardian provides air quality assessment, treatment and air hygiene management services for a range of buildings, including office blocks, shops, hospitals and leisure facilities, to ensure legal compliance, a safe environment, plus the overall efficiency and long-term running of air handling systems and associated plant.

Air quality assessment

Poorly maintained air systems can be a breeding ground for fungal and bacterial growth, which, once in the system, can spread disease through the ductwork. To assess air quality in a building, Guardian monitors the following:

  • Temperature
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Relative humidity
  • Airborne dust particulates
  • Airborne fungus and bacteria

By improving and maintaining air quality, apart from safeguarding occupants’ health, the overall performance of heating, ventilating and air handling/conditioning systems will remain efficient, with less chance of breakdown.
