Are You Buying Or Selling A House? Get A Home Inspection

Purchasing a home is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make. You need to ensure you are committing not only to a beautiful home that will meet the needs of your family but also to a house that will be safe to live in for years to come. Thus, it is a must to get an inspection before you agree to a mortgage on your new home. In fact, a house inspection is almost always required before an appraisal can confirm the value of the home. Whether you are selling or buying a home, a house inspection can prevent huge expenses in the future and save you money in the long run. Make sure you get an inspector to check if your home is up to all safety codes and is not hazardous to live in. It is also imperative to get your air quality checked.

Our inspections make sure your choice is a healthy home. We will provide an expert inspection to identify existing or hidden air quality problems that may pose future challenges – such as mould, asbestos, VOCs, gas leaks, radon, airborne particulates/allergens, and biohazard materials. These issues are not always noticed on the surface and especially to the naked eye but can potentially pose threats to your health and the safety of your entire home.

Our inspector is recognized by the CMHC as a Healthy Home Builder and Renovator with professional certifications inspecting homes for over 20 years. We can provide comprehensive reports on how to improve the air quality of your home and identify needed repairs to protect your home and save you money in the long run.

Call IAQ Canada to help you decide if the home is healthy to live in!

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.
