It can be rewarding being a property manager however it can also be challenging. The subject of indoor air quality has become a great concern because more and more people are learning the negative effects that bad indoor air quality can have to someone’s health. When you are a property manager of a multi unit complex the same indoor air problems found inside a single family home can be found in your building.

If you residents are coming to you that they have symptoms such as eye irritation, headache, and respiratory problems, it is wise to promptly schedule maintenance because it could be an indoor air quality issue. Another concern that residents can have is finding mold in their environment. If there are humidifiers that are higher than fifty the humidity levels are too high and that can be the cause of mold to grow. You may also have to contact a mold removal company to inspect the area and in conjunction create a plan to better understand how to control the humidity levels in your multi unit complex. The most important tip to property managers is to designate a indoor air quality manager who will be in charge of coordinating the appropriate times to schedule maintenance that can improve the indoor air quality in your apartment buildings. Having a designated indoor air quality manager and managing that everything is in compliance with state regulations can reduce having complaints from residents.Most importantly, as a property manager it is vital to have an open communication with the residents living in your property.
