Indoor Air Quality Insepction

Shawn is one of the best inspectors in the city. He has effective communication skills. He is attentive to your concerns and educates you about indoor air quality in a straightforward way. He carries out a thorough inspection to identify the source of your problems, then explains a variety of potential solutions. He is also very organized; he is punctual and has all his equipment ready, so everything can get done within a specific time frame. His written report is clear, detailed, and demonstrates his high degree of knowledge. Shawn is very compassionate and kind. His secretary, Marie, is also supportive and has great telephone etiquette. Thanks for everything!

Air quality check up

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.

An honest professional

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.

Thanks for the great review. Typically, we only recommend sampling if we are writing a scope of work or if we could not visually identify.

Good Service tailored to your knowledge

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.

Inspection of premises for Asbestos

We brought Shawn in to inspect our 2 buildings for possible asbestos. He was very knowledgeable and prepared an easy to understand report that we were able to use for our required purposes.

I would recommend his services to anyone.

Awesome

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.

Mold and moisture in our

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!

Asbestos testing

Shawn was incredibly knowledgeable and very professional. He made sure to explain everything in detail and we got our results back in the estimated time. I already referred him to a friend and would happily recommend him to others!

Air quality test

I was very pleased with the service that Shawn provided, especially the recommendations on products. His recommendations saved me time and money as I now don’t have to go through the trial and error of products. He even provided suggestions that I wouldn’t have thought of in the first instance.

He is passionate and knowledgeable about his field. As well, he talks to you like you are a friend or family member, while still staying professional. It didn’t feel like a sales pitch.

I also liked that he gave me general construction advice unrelated to air quality.

I would definitely recommend Shawn. The information he provided is well worth the investment, and it’s information that anyone can benefit from regardless of your specific issue.

Thanks Shawn!
