I had been a “touch-me-not” child since the very beginning. This meant that with weak immune system and sensitive skin I had to extra careful not catch an infection. So after getting one of the most coveted jobs of my life, when I first moved out of the house to be on my own my parents were still babying me to be careful. Even though I loved them to the core, moving to Atlanta was just something I had to do So, I right before leaving I told them how I would manage there exactly.
Upon reaching there, I had already contacted one of the best agencies to do the air quality assessment of my home in Atlanta. I had already read and researched that Air quality management aims to limit negative impacts through a variety of activities, including legislation, policies, and plans to manage emissions and monitor ambient air quality. It was essential to know exactly what kind of problems was I looking at and then find a suitable solution for them. The team came in with the tools and took me through the procedure of air quality assessment.
They showed me the different tools that existed and helped in measuring the quality of local air including the impact of specific sources, emissions, and meteorological conditions. The highly complicated report that is generated from the air quality assessment tell you decisions on permitting of emissions, industrial siting, and land use; all can impact local air quality, which in turn can influence air pollution related health effects of a population. You can then accordingly take remedial measures to prevent any future problems that might arise due to pollutants present in the air.
The professionals told me that there were two kinds of pollutants: primary and secondary. The primary pollutants are released directly into the air by the deformities present in the area while the secondary pollutants are formed by various reactions between the primary ones already present in the air. Some of the secondary pollutants are such that they can give you irreversible breathing disorders and more. Hence getting an air quality assessment done is essential before moving into your home.
