Breathe better today by doing a quality Air Testing
Indoor air quality and exposure to indoor pollutants and contaminated air is a major concern for many homes and business owners. Health Canada and The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) clarifies that air quality maybe 6-10 times worse and surprisingly more contaminated than the air outside, even in large cities.
There are many factors that contribute to poor indoor air quality. Among those are microbial contamination, residue from fire damage and water damage, contamination from outside the building, inadequate ventilation, and fabric contamination. Some buildings contain lead, asbestos, silica, mercury, excessive dust, and humidity.

How does air-quality testing interconnect with mold/mould remediation?
Water leakage at work or at home can create a perfect environment for mold to grow. For everyone’s health and safety, it is very important that frequent Air Quality Testing, also known as IAQ, is conducted by concerned persons and authorities. It doesn’t take time for mold to get quadrupled if it is heavily exposed to moisture. It’s also almost impossible to find contaminants within the air such as carbon dioxide, toxic vapors, dust, fungi, and ozone without air-quality testing.
A basic property of mold/mould is that it is an organic fungus that amplifies in any space that lacks or has insufficient air circulation. Undetected, mold/mould can then lead to serious health issues such as severe allergies, respiratory problems, reduced energy and drowsiness , headaches etc.. Icon Restoration can help you with proper indoor and outdoor air-quality testing inspections.
Our team provides proper air-quality inspection of your work/home space. Using sturdy, advanced air sampling pumps, our mold remediation team can detect any mould spores that have been spread into the air. This entire process then helps us differentiate between the type of mould particles and their individual spore levels, which in turn helps us offer you proper guidance on what can possibly be done to amend the damage.
Regular inspection of indoor air quality is very essential, especially if your workspace or your house is fully air-conditioned. At Icon Restoration our air-quality testing is fully designed as per Residential indoor air quality guidelines provided by the Government of Canada.
