“Obviously, the source of your system’s air intake affects its overall performance, and should always be investigated first when there’s an air quality problem. Mysterious odor problems can sometimes be caused by an unfortunate intake placement, such as proximity to a janitorial closet, where wet mops and cleaning agents are stored, causing chemical and/or moldy odors. Poor placement can be especially problematic in multi-use buildings. We had a client whose call center was suffering from poor air quality and mysterious odors.
