Is your home or office making you sick?


➔ Solve your problems for good!

Today’s tighter energy efficient buildings pose a variety of new challenging air quality concerns. Building alterations, new building materials, and new mechanical systems directly affect air quality. With today’s threat of aerosolized Covid-19 microbes, mechanical systems are becoming a very important tool for improving indoor air quality.

IAQ Ottawa provides full, in-depth air quality consulting services. Our consultants address all aspects of air quality identified in today’s energy efficient indoor environments. Gas, mold, chemical, biological, mechanical, and building pressure hazards are routinely identified and documented. Our reports are comprehensive and easy to understand.

Address the source of the odour and eliminate the cause!

All air quality conditions are the result of occupant activity, building construction techniques, and the outdoor environment. Understanding the relationship between these conditions requires building science knowledge and experience. Identifying the source and cause of the air quality problem is the first step towards healthy air quality.

Our experience in building construction science, mechanical system design, and air quality testing ensures our clients receive a cost effective, permanent solution to any type of indoor environmental condition.

We follow a professional protocol to solve your air quality situation:

  • Identify odours or problems
  • Scientifically document the exposure
  • Pinpoint the cause of problems, not just the result.
  • Identify the solutions and help you locate independent, qualified contractor options
  • Perform independent, post-remediation clearance testing to ensure your health and safety before you re-enter the building.

Would recommend. Easy to reach and communicated well. Prompt for our appointment. Really well informed and experienced staff. Our inspector was on time and honest with our options and possible solutions. Made us informed so we could move forward with putting into place a solution that worked for us.

Prompt, courteous and helpful. From the get-go, Shawn was interested in knowing the purpose of the visit in order to identify the root cause. He offered actionable tips to address air quality and moisture issues, and didn't recommend or upsell any additional services (e.g. in fact, clarified that there actually wasn't a need to get the asbestos and mould sampling I thought was required!). I would certainly turn to Indoor Air Quality Ottawa again if or when needed.

Shawn is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I had contacted other companies in the past who were more focused on charging for unnecessary air samples and services. I highly recommend to contact IAQ if you have any concerns about your home air quality and want an honest expert opinion.

We are very happy to now know what things are affecting our allergies and asthma in our home as well as knowing the ways we can reduce the issues. We were also shown how to better heat (and cool) our home more evenly and found out that our furnace was on its last legs.

Shawn was extremely knowledgeable. Really really knows what he’s talking abt. Took lots of time with us to explain things. Took extra time to look at our air exchanger told us why it wasn’t working and made sure we understood how to work it. Had reliable contacts we could use to do repairs. I would very highly recommend this company.

Shawn was very helpful and professional in dealing with humidity and mold in our home. He takes the time to see and address the entire home system, rather than just put a bandaid on a single problem. We are very pleased at this logical and big picture approach, his expertise, and the solutions that he has recommended. It is not worth it to live in a home with air quality problems, whether it be mold, Carbon Monoxide, asbestos, or VOCs, and Shawn is your man to help address these problems!

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. My wife and I are grateful to Shawn and Indoor Air Quality Ottawa team for assisting us.
