The Air You Breathe

Under most provincial and federal regulations asbestos management programs are a requirement for asbestos control.

 

Maintaining clean heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems is an important part of sustaining acceptable indoor air quality (IAQ). Contaminates in HVAC systems may take many forms. Particle deposition on component surfaces starts before the HVAC system is even installed. Airborne particles in factory settings and assembly areas are likely to settle on air-handling components and fiberglass insulation, as well as adhere to the surface of metal components.

Carbon Monoxide

Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a colourless, odourless, toxic gas that becomes deadly at higher levels. CO can be produced when incomplete and improper burning of fossil fuels occurs. Substances that we are around every day, such as gas and oil heating systems, gas, diesel and propane driven vehicles, floor polishers, forklifts, and generators, etc can produce harmful concentrations. ​Symptoms of CO poisoning include Respiratory problems, chronic heart disease, dizziness, vomiting, flu like symptoms, general weakness and confusion.

 

Carbon Dioxide

Carbon dioxide or CO2 is a naturally occurring substance that exists as a gas at normal room temperatures. We exhale it when we breathe, and at various levels, it becomes toxic to the human body. It can have many consequences including:

 

• Increased rate of breathing

• A choking sensation

• Eventually unconsciousness

• Weakened powers of concentration

• Headaches

• Fatigue

 

What We Do To Counter CO and CO2 (Testing Services)

With respect to CO and CO2, we measure levels outside first before entering to determine if levels are too high. Additionally, our building pressure diagnostics can prevent generation and dispersion within a building. Using the proper equipment we can measure the exhausts of systems and reduce hazards by correcting the problem before it gets out of hand. Our equipment is able to detect CO and CO2 levels that are normally missed by home detectors.

 

 

Indoor Air Quality

​Canadian Invironmental Services performs tests for a wide range of substances and chemicals that can affect indoor air quality in all areas of Ontario.

Substances we test for include:

 

• Carbon Monoxide / Dioxide

• Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOCs)

• Dust, Mites and Allergens

• Ozone

• Temperature and humidity levels

• Formaldehyde

• Hydrogen Sulfide & Gases

• Chemicals & Nuisance Oders

 

 

Dust and Allergens

Our tests can help to detect a range of dust and allergens in your home, that can lead to a number of respiratory problems along with aggravating existing allergies.

Measurement of the following indoor air quality parameters is recommended as part of an indoor air quality audit:

 

• Temperature

• Relative humidity

• Air movement

 

Temperature and relative humidity measurements provide a useful check on the thermal comfort indoors. These factors may also aggravate existing conditions like allergies or other respiratory issues.
