Proper Maintenance Saves Money
The World Health Organization estimates that poor indoor air quality costs $60 billion in employee sick leave and lost production. Proper Maintenance and prompt response to situations that could lead to an illness or health concern is a responsibility owed to tenants, workers and/or students.
