If you believe your building needs air testing, there are a few guidelines to consider. Sometimes you can diagnose the problem yourself, but you may need outside help in some or all of the following situations.
1. There is an antagonistic or mistrustful relationship between you and the owner or property manager of the building.
2. A lawsuit could arise from unsafe conditions related to poor indoor air quality.
3. You have already attempted to solve the air quality problem, but to no avail.
4. There is immediate danger.
If any of these conditions apply, it is best to seek an indoor air consultant to assist you.
