Indoor Air Quality Testing in Schools, Municipal and County Offices in NJ

Managing buildings that have multiple additions and numerous air handling units or unit ventilators presents particular challenges for safety, productivity and comfort of students and staff.  Common IAQ and PEOSHA concerns include;

  • Are my buildings providing the correct amount of outdoor air?
  • Are there elevated levels of carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds, formaldehyde or other hazardous chemicals in my buildings?
  • Can you help us investigate  employee’s complaints of Sick Building Syndrome or Building Related Illness at our site?
  • Air airborne mold levels within normal ranges?
  • What adjustments can be made to optimize air quality given our installed equipment?

Having assisted hundreds of schools, offices, police, municipal and county office buildings manage Indoor Air Quality Problems over the past 30 years has given us deep understanding of the capacities and limits of air handling systems for managing health and comfort of occupants.  The air quality experts at ESMCorp work diligently to remain current on PEOSHA, CDC and ASHRAE guidelines for ventilation in buildings even as the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency Declaration has expired (May 2023). 


Recent wildfires in Canada have caused smoke and high levels of airborne particles (PM2.5 and PM10) in outdoor air throughout the NJ/Mid-Atlantic Region. ESMCORP Air Quality Experts are assisting our school district, county and municipal customers with needed HVAC and other adjustments to maintain safe Indoor Air and Continuity of Business.

Changing COVID-19 Guidance from PEOSHA, CDC and the NJ Department of Health  

The most recent May 12, 2023 CDC guidelines for offices now recommend a target of 5 air changes per hour of a combination of ventilation, dilution, and filtration approaches to reduce risks of COVID spread now that the COVID Public Health Emergency Declaration has expired.  Meeting these guidelines is challenging for various building types.  Let us work with your facilities and HVAC team to determine the best combination for your site.
