What Is an Industrial Hygienist?
According towww.aiha.org,"Industrial Hygiene is a science and art devoted to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, prevention, and control of those environmental factors or stresses arising in or from the workplace which may cause sickness, impaired health and well being, or significant discomfort among workers or among citizens of the community."
Industrial hygienists are described as "scientists and engineers committed to protecting the health and safety of people in the workplace and the community. They evaluate the quality of the air inside a structure. Using various testing devices, these professionals collect air and surface samples to compare the indoor mold spore count to the outdoor environment.
SERVPRO of Joliet is able to do a visual inspection for mold, however; there are times when mold may exist but can not be seen. At that point, we would refer you to an Industrial Hygienist. Upon the results of the air sample testing, we can provide you with an estimate to remove the mold that exists in you home or business. Call 815-436-5735.
