Air Quality Testing Toronto

At SafeAir, we don't just identify problems with your indoor air environment - we also provide indoor air quality solutions! SafeAir delivers a complete range of services to customers in Toronto, and throughout the GTA:  air quality testing, environmental assessments, and indoor mould testing. We service residential homes as well as office and industrial buildings. SafeAir is a specialized air inspection company - our services are limited to air testing, and we don’t try to sell related services or products - your health is our primary concern!

Poor indoor air quality can be the cause of minor discomfort, or more profound and negative health issues. Indeed, in the workplace, productivity and efficiency may suffer as workers are enveloped in an unhealthy air environment. In Canada, Health Canada reports that indoor air quality in an industrialized city can be 6 to 10 times more polluted than the outdoor air. And quite often, we only experience the negative side effects after long periods of exposure. 

SafeAir uses sophisticated air quality testing techniques to detect the nature of an indoor air quality issue. The testing process evaluates the composition, source and level of specific indoor pollutants, and results in a detailed report and summary. We know why indoor air pollutants are caused:  poor ventilation; mismanaged humidity levels; dust and/or particulate issues; chemical off gassing; combustible gases and/or sewer gases; even traditional mould growth. And our air quality testing procedure will show you exactly what you are breathing in.

The primary objective of any air quality assessment should be to identify the source and cause of a particular problem. And since we probably spend 90% of our time indoors, the quality of air that we breathe is very important. The majority of indoor pollutants are invisible, and often odorless - so proper identification is critical to the process. Only with a professional evaluation, and the associated facts and figures can any rectification take place. SafeAir can provide that professionalism, with hi-tech tools and instrumentation, and with a qualified and experienced team of pros. 

What are the Symptoms of Poor Air Quality?

Poor air quality is difficult to identify without using specialized equipment, since it’s more than just a funky smell. However, the best way to spot poor indoor air is still your nose - just not the way you think it is. Poor indoor air quality is linked to a number of symptoms that are commonly experienced in a variety of illnesses and diseases. For example - a runny nose can be caused by seasonal cold or flu virus - but it can also be caused by something in your indoor air.

Common symptoms include:

Most of our residential clients contact us when experiencing the negative side effects of poor air quality:  allergic reactions; respiratory concerns; sinus problems; even headaches, dizziness and physical pains. In these cases, there’s already an air quality issue, and already a need for assessment. We also have a good number of clients who just want to know if the indoor air quality in their home is safe and non-toxic - also a great reason for air quality testing.

How do you Know if there’s Mold in Your House?

Knowing whether or not there is mold present in your home is sometimes an easy task: you can see the growth on a wall or object, which tells you that there’s a problem. But what if you don’t see the mold growing? What if you’re experiencing symptoms of poor indoor air quality, or seem to never get over your last round of flu? Mold, like any organism, wants to survive, so it’s often found growing in sneaky, hidden or unseen places. Knowing where to pay attention can make a big difference to your health and indoor wellness! Some things to look out for are:

Does an Air Quality Test Detect Mold?

If you’re concerned about mold growth in your home, you might be considering having a mold test or an indoor air quality test performed. But which is better? Both tests are accurate and useful ways to detect mold growth in your home, but our preference is for an air quality test - not only will it give you a good idea about all the particles present in a given space’s air quality, but it’ll also give you very accurate readings about quantities, which can help us determine the best route forward.

How is Air Quality Testing Conducted?

When we do an air quality test, there is usually a minimum of two different samples that we take. If there’s a particular room or floor that you have concern over, we’ll take a sample from that room and then another from a different space - to provide a control, or baseline sample. After we’ve collected samples, they’re sent to a third-party testing facility to provide us with objective results and a report that outlines what - and how many - mold or other contaminants are present in your indoor air quality.

At SafeAir, our priority is to provide our clients with confidence and clarity when it comes to the indoor air quality of their home. When it comes to assessing your home and making positive changes, SafeAir is the best choice in Toronto and the GTA, with nearly a decade of service. Our experience in the indoor air quality field has been in working in buildings big and small, new and old, and shown us a wide array of different issues and concerns that homeowners have. Since we focus exclusively on air testing, we’ve been able to specialize in a way many companies cannot - which helps us help YOU better.

How do you Test for Air Quality in your Home?

Just as you wouldn’t let an electrician do your plumbing, testing your indoor air quality health is best left to a professional. Not only do we have sensitive tools that can detect even the smallest particles, but all tests are analyzed by a third party laboratory, which gives us impartial results to work with.

When you choose a professional, you’re not just getting someone who knows how to take a sample, but a trained technician with years of experience on the job and in a wide variety of homes and businesses. At SafeAir, we pride ourselves on professionalism, respect, and courtesy, and aim to provide you with a stress free consultation with as little disruption to your day.
