Welcome back! Where have you been? You disappeared before COVID, even. How things have changed...
The terrain of IAQ has not improved. If anything, it's even more confusing and riskier for the clients. The necessity of guardrails is greater than ever. The need for parachutes is beginning.
We will be discussing IAQ/IEQ from both the commercial/residential client's perspective, as well as from the practice side. Clear communication is paramount for positive outcomes with indoor environmental issues.
