We develop and implement site specific sampling plans when we inspect buildings facing difficult IAQ issues. During a standard inspection we can investigate the presence of pollutants that includes VOCs, Carbon Dioxide, 2.5µm PM, and formaldehyde off-gassing.
Our certified environmental consultants have the education, experience and required know how to properly and safely perform air, surface, and material mold testing, as well as IAQ, hazardous materials, and designated substances reports.
Environmental Services Offered in the Ottawa Area
From testing for possible hidden mold growth, to assessing the scope of the mold contamination that may require remediation. Our mold assessments, sampling plans, and reports are tailored to meet your specific project needs, as well as priced to fit your specific budget.
In Ontario, If you are planning or are in the process of beginning a building renovation project, then you need to complete an asbestos survey. Materials that should be tested include plaster, vermiculite, joint compound, stippled ceiling, ceiling tiles, and vinyl flooring.
It is mandated by the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act that a Designated Substances Survey (DSS) must be completed prior to tendering for a contractor, as potential bidders must be aware of what hazardous materials may be present within a building.
"Setting higher professional standards, because we believe that everyone deserves to live, work, and study in a healthy indoor environment."
We are committed to providing the Ottawa region with independent and accountable indoor environmental testing services. Unlike some of our competitors, we only perform inspections and testing, without offering expensive mold removal or asbestos abatement services.
This way you can be sure that you are paying for services based on integrity, dependability, and credibility without having to worry about being sold costly mold removal, or asbestos and lead abatement services that may be pushed on you as a result of bias and questionable testing practices.
CERTIFIED MOLD INSPECTIONS AND TESTING
While others may offer you services that do not implement proper sampling controls and do not meet the industry standards.
All sampling completed by us will always include a baseline control sample, and we won’t collect samples from multiple areas using a single cassette; which is known as split sampling.
We only perform sampling that fully adheres to the highest industry standards and recommended sampling guidelines recognized by Health Canada and the American Industrial Hygiene Association.
ASBESTOS TESTING SERVICES
Asbestos is a known carcinogenic that can be a hazard to your health when disturbed. So whether you are planning a renovation project, buying a home, or selling your home, asbestos testing should be one of your top priorities.
Not only is asbestos abatement (removal) expensive, but in Ontario asbestos is also classified as a designated substance. That means that any building materials that can contain asbestos must be tested if they are going to be disturbed or removed by a contractor.
