Indoor Air Quality Residential

home air testing

The air you breathe in your home can have a profound effect on the overall enjoyment of your home as well as your overall health.  Indoor air quality problems or indoor mould growth issues can have long lasting effects on your health.

Most residential clients contact us due to odour complaints, allergic reactions, respiratory issues, sinus infections or previous water damage and/or mould issues in the home.  A large number of clients also just want to know if the air they are breathing is safe.

Indoor air quality in the home can be affected by many factors such as building design, heating/cooling design, previous water damage or previous mould growth issues.  Most if not all issues can be easily addressed or solved once it is determined what the indoor air quality or mould growth issues are.

A few things to watch out for
when dealing with indoor air quality.

  1. Improperly managed humidity levels.
  2. Airborne Dust issues from poorly maintained ducts or other sources within the building.
  3. Chemical off gassing (VOC's) from building materials or furniture.
  4. Inadequate ventilation due to mechanical or building issues.
  5. Carbon Monoxide (CO) or Carbon Dioxide (CO2) issues.
  6. Sewer gas issues leading to odour complaints.
  7. Water damage issues leading to odour complaints or mould growth damage.
  8. Mould spore issues leading to respiratory complaints.
  9. Radon issues in the Basement
  10. Radioactive marble or granite in the home.

Call us today. We will be happy to discuss your indoor air quality issues with you
and provide you with an instant quote over the phone.
