My name is Michael Shain, and I am an Indoor Air Quality Environmentalist. My passion is to see that every patient who suffers from asthma, allergies and other pulmonary issues understand that medication alone should not be their only option. Identifying the triggers and assessing their indoor air quality should be part of their treatment plan.
Our Qualifications are extensive which not only allows us to test your indoor air quality, but also gives us the ability to diagnose why your air quality may be contributing to your medical conditions as well as how to remediate those elevated triggers.
I started NY Indoor Air Quality Solutions after a few of my home inspection clients asked me to inspect and test their homes for air quality issues. They all had children with asthma or severe allergies and some suffered from repeated sinus infections. In many cases we were able to identify issues in their homes which contributed to the triggers that cause the onset of an asthma attack and other chronic respiratory illnesses. After our recommendations and remediation were completed we found many of the patients were able to substantially reduce the medication they depended on. Since the results were so convincing, I decided to research and educate myself on the topic of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and substantiate if there was a link to the increase in severity and prevalence of Asthma.The one major glaring issue that stood out was the increase in childhood respiratory illnesses over the past 30 years. Asthma afflicts about 20 million Americans, including 6.3 million children. Since 1980, the biggest growth in asthma cases has been in children under five. In 2000 there were nearly 2 million emergency room visits and nearly half a million hospitalizations due to asthma, at a cost of almost $2 billion resulting in 14 million school days missed each year.
Our Mission is to partner with the medical community in providing a service which will evaluate the air you breathe, identify any triggers which are above baselines and recommend how to remediate these harmful issues. Our number one goal is to reduce your dependency on medications and diminish the severity and occurrences of your attacks.
