In 1991 the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) indicated that the term "sick building syndrome" (SBS) is used to describe situations in which building occupants experience acute health and comfort effects that appear to be linked to the time spent in a building, but no specific illness or cause can be identified. A "sick building may contain any of the following issues: poor indoor air quality, off-gasing building materials, building system malfunction, external sources of vapor migration or other attributes that can negatively impact the occupants of a specific area, building, room or space within the structure.
If you are feeling discomfort, or have some of the following symptoms while at home, the office or visiting another facility, you may be experiencing the indicators of SBS. Indicators include: headaches, eye, nose or throat irritation, dry cough, dry or itchy skin, difficulty concentrating, fatigue or sensitivity to odors.
If you do not readily realize the cause of the symptoms but feel relief soon after leaving the room or building, you may be susceptible to contaminates in the environment.

Weecycle can help... We will identify the source of the aggravation through a step by step investigation.
Step 1 - A walk through investigation of the suspect area. Weecycle will: review historical information; interview the occupants; consider the pathway of the HVAC System; and examine corridors and sources for other contaminants.
Step 2 - Develop a hypothesis
Step 3 - Perform environmental screenings and tests as necessary
Step 4 - Review the results and data
Step 5 - Create an action plan - communicating the causes, consequences and preventative measures
