Indoor air quality inspection

Shawn was very knowledgeable and was great at explaining things to me. He was also honest about what home upgrades we could do ourselves. I highly recommend him and will definitely recommend him to my friends and family.

Mold

In looking at updating our fireplace, our contractor strongly suggested that we contact IAQ as he suspected that there might be mold in the back of our basement (note that 4 other Ottawa area contractors had been in to our home and not one suggested testing!!). We contacted Sean who promptly visited our home, completed a full inspection, completed the necessary tests and finally confirmed that there was indeed mold that needed remediation. This was followed by an in depth report, full details on exactly what needed to be done, and other recommendations on what other measures we could take to take the improvements to the next level. We have a son with heart & lung disease. Confirmation of mold was mind-blowing. To his credit, Sean is an engaging man. He has the skill set to calm one down, empathize with your situation, calmly explain what is needed, and finally reassure you that it is possible to fix it all. The remediation was completed and IAQ returned to our home to do the final testing which confirmed that the problem had been dealt with. During his second visit to our home, he sat down with us and made recommendations on other improvements we could make and how to deal with fireplace removal, etc. given our son's health. We will take his advice. In closing, IAQ, Sean, and his team (Marie comes to mind) are highly recommended. We will take every opportunity to suggest/recommend their services. This was money well spent!

Thank you for your great review. Let me know when you open the cavity for the new fireplace. I will provide a no-charge quick inspection before the new vent is installed. Have a nice March break.

Thanks for the great comments. I am glad the home seems fresh. Remember the ultra-fine particle cleaning, as well as the HRV repairs. Merry Christmas!

Support for Basement Rebuild

Following an initial IAQ inspection, Shawn provided us support and inspections throughout the water proofing and rebuilding of our basement. His expertise was extremely valuable to project to ensure the work was completed correctly. He made himself available to inspect work and discuss issues. We are very grateful for the support to this large project. He knows his stuff and helps you navigate the steps needed to correct issues and build in a way to facilitate a healthy home. He also pointed out a number of other things we should consider and address while rebuilding. This was helpful. We are extremely happy with the results - such a big change in just less than a year. I would not hesitate to contact him again if we have any follow up questions or issues. Thank you!

Moisture Issues

I am a foundation repair contractor who specializes in basement leaks. I recently hired Shawn from Indoor Air Quality Ottawa and was pleasantly surprised of his approach to solving moisture related issues. Shawn knew his stuff and explained it to the client very well and in a manner that could be understood. I will have IAQ Ottawa test more humid basements for me in the future.

Asbestos testing and more

I hired IAQ to test my basement ceiling tiles for asbestos. Shawn Rankin from IAQ came to my house to do the job. When he came, he asked why I wanted to test for asbestos and I explained that it was because I wanted to get rid of the ceiling tile to investigate the extent of a crack on my foundation. He asked the kind of job that foundation contractors were proposing to fix the problem and he gave me advice on what do to and most importantly, what seemed to be over-scoped by the foundation contractors and didn't really need to be done.

Shawn went well beyond the asbestos testing job and gave me advice about what to do about the foundation repair. He also noticed that there was mold in the basement, provided me with a plan to solve that problem, and gave me direct links to various products.

In summary, I hired IAQ to do asbestos testing and ended up with a wealth of information and expert advice.

I would recommend IAQ and Shawn Rankin to family and friends.

Thanks again Shawn for the service and advice you provided.

Asbestos test on attic insulation

I'm looking to sell my home and wanted to test the attic insulation for asbestos. Shawn was very knowledgeable in this area and took the time to explain the product and different types of insulation that I had. He sent off a sample to the lab, and I received the results quickly with assurance that there is no asbestos. Very pleased with the whole process.
