PRLog - Dec. 20, 2010 - PEORIA, Ariz. -- Complaints of strange odors in indoor environments are a common occurrence. Most people have at one time or another walked into a room or building and have immediately noticed an unusual odor. In many circumstances these mysterious odors may be believed to be due to housekeeping issues, cooking odors or smells created by manufacturing processes in industrial facilities.
Employee complaints are often the initial cause of odor investigations. These odors may be causing health concerns or lost productivity for the building’s occupants. If not properly handled by management these same odor concerns can sometimes turn into formal worker complaints and even lawsuits.
Quite often when the source of mysterious odors cannot be identified the services of an indoor air quality (IAQ) professional are required. One of the leading providers of odor investigations in Illinois and across the greater Chicago area is EC2, Inc. The IAQ and building science investigators at EC2 have successfully conducted over 5000 indoor air quality investigations.
