Indoor Air Quality Testing

IAQ testing is the common term used for air testing in commercial facilities and buildings. Studies have shown that today’s population spend over 80% of their time indoors, which has created many IAQ-related issues. A basic IAQ test includes carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, temperature and relative humidity.

Additional testing parameters can include total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs), dust, allergens, mould, radon, lead-based paint, methamphetamine (surface wipe samples), cocaine (surface wipe samples), tobacco and marijuana smoke (air and surface wipe samples), swabs, and many types of particulate. Each IAQ assessment is customized to suit each client’s situation and concerns.

Common Problems

  • Too much dust in the air.
  • Too much moisture
  • Not enough fresh air
  • Mould
  • Bacteria
  • Radon
  • Sewer gases
  • CO, CO2
  • Chemical off gassing (VOC)
  • Allergens

Dust mites

Odour investigations can also be performed to help determine the source(s), its chemical composition and potential health effects. A comprehensive report is provided that outlines the results of all testing, summary of laboratory testing, if applicable, relevant observations and recommendations to help improve the indoor air environment.

Indoor air quality testing is also required for LEED projects. HLC Consulting can assist with developing and conducting an appropriate air sampling plan.

Our indoor air quality testing services can provide you with detailed information on the composition, sources and levels of indoor pollutants. Common indoor air quality pollutants can be caused by inadequate ventilation, poorly managed humidity levels, dust and particulate issues, chemical off gassing, combustible gases and sewer gas issues, water intrusion leading to mould growth, bacterial issues as well as poor building design and maintenance. Our air testing results will reveal what occupants are breathing in.
