Since 1984, PSI has performed IH & IAQ inspections, testing and analytical services for hundreds of thousands of properties nationwide. The majority of PSI’s IH & IAQ consulting business has been spurred by client’s buying, selling, developing and managing real estate. As clients evaluate property for acquisition, manage existing facilities, or as they undertake redevelopment of a property, it is not uncommon for asbestos, lead-based paint, IAQ or mold issues to be identified. Once an issue has been identified, an obligation to address the issue may arise in order to comply with various environmental regulations, to ensure a healthy indoor environment, and for business risk management purposes.

PSI’s IH & IAQ professionals have the expertise to manage any Industrial Hygiene or IAQ project from initial surveys through certification of completion. We can’t prevent their occurrence, but we can help minimize the issue’s potential impact to your property transaction, development or facility.
