FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions
I want to have a company come to test the air in my home. Is this something that Airzone can do?
Unless an IAQ problem is due to an obvious source such as a recent renovation, new carpets, visible mould or water damage or sewer odours, investigations can be time consuming and therefore costly. A typical investigation can cost more than $1,500 for a residence including analysis expenses and may not yield an immediate resolution to the IAQ issue. Homeowners find this cost prohibitive.
Many problems can be diagnosed with a detailed questionnaire, and we often provide an initial consultation over the phone to determine if a problem can be easily diagnosed.
Information about IAQ issues can be found at the CMHC website, http://www.cmhc-schl.gc.ca/en/corp/faq/faq_005.cfm, Health Canada website, http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/ewh-semt/air/index-eng.php, or the US EPA website, http://www.epa.gov/iaq/pubs/insidestory.html. Moreover, the CMHC Residential Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Investigator Training Program lists of qualified practitioners independent IAQ investigations. CMHC?s: Tel: 1-800-668-2642.
