The quality of air we breathe is affected by many factors which will directly affect our health. At our place of work, where we spend a significant proportion of our time, we may be affected by a variety of air pollutants. Industrial locations may generate smoke, flour dust, heavy metals, carbon or other fibres along with many other general emissions.
Air quality in retail and commercial premises will be affected by poorly maintained ventilation, emissions from electrical equipment, carpet fibres, sprays and dust and is often identified as ‘sick building syndrome’. Poor air quality may also affect manufacturing or storage processes. For example dust settlement can cause damage to sensitive equipment, or lead to customer dissatisfaction. SMS Environmental provides a range of air quality services designed to create pleasant environments for our clients, their customers and their staff. Our highly trained personnel are able to advise on a wide variety of services and installations that will address and resolve most air quality issues.
