air quality inspection

I contacted IAQ because of concerns about mold in my home. I knew we had some type of mold growing where there'd been a leak in the roof, but I didn't know how bad it was, or how to go about fixing the problem. Shawn came to our house as scheduled, on time and thoughtfully bringing an extra pair of shoes for indoors. He was immediately very direct and informative, but also friendly and approachable. Shawn confirmed the mold problem in the attic, and also advised that we had a more serious air quality problem emanating from our damp unfinished basement. This was not the usual bad-news-that's-going-to-cost-a-bundle advice. Shawn sat down with me and described the steps that should be followed to clean up the mold in both areas of our old house, whether we choose to do the work ourselves for a few hundred dollars, or whether we choose to hire a recommended contractor. He provided all of the facts, and answered all of the questions in an honest, no bull way. I'm so glad that I called IAQ.

Air Quality Inspection

Having some concerns about smells in my home, I contacted IAQ and arranged for Shawn to inspect my home. Shawn was punctual almost to the minute despite me requesting a re-schedule at the last minute. He did a thorough inspection of all levels of my home, and offered some great advice towards maintaining various higher-risk areas. He was a true professional while here, and was obviously extremely knowledgeable. He gave me the ease of mind I needed. We will definitely be future customers if/when the need arises and will strongly recommend him to our family and friends. Thanks Shawn!

Asbestos Assessment

I contacted Shawn at Indoor Air Quality after a contractor highlighted to me that I have asbestos surrounding the heating ducts in my home. The contractor suggested the removal of the asbestos and asked for tens of thousands of dollars to do so. I wanted to ensure that my family was not at risk and wanted an impartial opinion. Shawn was able to inspect my home and provide me with information on Provincial and civic guidelines on how to address our issue. Within a couple of hours I was able to validate that I had a relatively minor containment job on my hands and that there was no imminent risk to my family. In fact the removal of the asbestos product would have been a much riskier means of dealing with what is essentially a non-issue. All in all this saved me a lot of stress and a lot of money. I can't recommend Shawn enough.

Air Quality

I spoke to the owner Shawn and it is rare that someone will suggest that I can save money by doing some simple tests myself. He provided me how to do the test and why the test was necessary. I now know more than I ever thought I would need to know about; mould, heat loss and basic home foundations. He is a very knowledgable man and when I need his services, i will be sure to call him or recommend him to anyone that may need his services. If corporate atmosphere stems from the boss, he will have a great set of employees. Aaron Rosler

Home Inspection

Shawn Rankin come to our home and completed a very thorough inspection, and provided us with a complete plan for moving forward with mold removal and air quality improvement. I was very impressed with the knowledge base and professionalism of IAQ, and the excellent services provided. There was also no sales job being done - we were simply informed of the steps we could independently take to improve the quality of the air in our home. Overall, I was extremely impressed with this service! Thank you Shawn for your wonderful service, timeliness, cost-efficiency suggestions, and friendly demeanour!

Indoor Air Quality advice

Shawn came to our house at exactly the hour booked and spent over 2 hours providing us with a wealth of information to identify sources of poor air quality and ways to deal with them. He did not try to sell us anything else and thus provided unbiased advice. Highly recommended.

Air Quality Investigation

I have respiratory problems and wanted to ensure that the air quality in my house is okay. Overall, the air quality was okay but I was given a number of inexpensive options to improve it along with more expensive ones. The investigation reassured me and I now know what to do for better quality air.

Indoor Air Quality Inspection

It easy to see why so many people rate Indoor Air Quality Ottawa a 10/10.They are a well run and thoughtful business that provide excellent customer service. The booking process is easy and your appointment is confirmed by a follow up email as a reminder. Mr Shawn Rankin provided an Indoor Air quality inspection for my wife and I to alleviate our concerns that we might have some mold in the basement. Shawn was extremely thorough in his inspection and provided a clear and detailed explanation of the examination process and the results. He provided a wealth of information on things we could do to improve air quality in our home. You can tell that this is more than just a job for Shawn and that he truly cares for his customers well being. My wife and I are grateful to Shawn and Indoor Air Quality Ottawa team for assisting us.
