Environmental Home Inspections
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.

Are You Planning a Renovation, Home Improvement, or Demolition?
Similar to buying or selling your home, it is also imperative to ensure your home is safe to perform any renovations or improvements on. An air quality inspection from our own certified expert will ensure that no mould spores, asbestos fibres, allergens, dust, or odours contaminate your home during the renovation/construction period and affect you and your family’s health.
The homeowner or building manager is responsible for determining what hazardous substances are in their home prior to construction for risks of exposure to workers and family. This is important to not only protect your own health but to also safeguard yourself against any liability in case any workers get sick from an unhealthy environment in your home. Start your renovation off on the right path to health and safety by getting an air quality home inspection.
Get a 3rd party’s opinion and advice on your construction project from someone other than your contractor. As your trusted inspector, we will visit your site, review your drawings, and make recommendations on building codes, low-VOC products, dust-free renovations, and installs of any home improvements. This way you can be sure that any modifications to your home will only increase its value.
