Frequently Asked Questions

Below are the answers to some of our frequently asked questions. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact Enviropure today.

We get asked this question quite a bit. Let’s take new homes first. In a perfect world, you’d put down your hard-earned money and move into a spotless, pristine new home, one that had no issued with air quality or other matters of cleanliness, health and sanitation. Unfortunately, when new homes are constructed in Ottawa nowadays, the builders and subcontractors can get a little sloppy (your mileage will vary). What kinds of things do they end up depositing into your home and leave behind, failing to clean up after themselves? This can run the gamut from tobacco smoke & cigarette butts to building materials, coffee cups and all sort of debris that you didn’t bargain for! That’s why a move-in cleanup AND air quality testing are highly recommended – even for new homes. As for cleaning your home, even the most rigorous of cleaning standards can’t catch many of the particulates and hazardous materials that air quality testing searches for.

With the high standards of indoor air quality testing we perform to, hazardous materials that are more commonly found include mold, dust, asbestos, allergens, carbon monoxide, radon, VOC (volatile organic compounds) and more. Should we find one or more of these present, we’ll delve deeper to identify the source(s) and provide a plan of action to eliminate the source(s).

We’ve tested many of those air quality testing kits that are available on the consumer market, and unfortunately we’ve yet to find one to which we’d entrust the well-being of our loved ones. The quality of these “air quality testing” kits varies from poor to mediocre, and it makes us think of the old saying, “you get what you pay for.” Instead, you’re much better hiring the services of a professional air quality testing provider, one who has a depth of training, experience and comprehensive knowledge when it comes to indoor air quality and air quality testing. We’ve invested (and continue to make ongoing capital expenditures) in high quality, professional-level air quality testing equipment. That’s how we ensure that the air quality testing we perform is reliable and accurate, so that you and your family can breathe the best air possible.

The amount of time it takes to test your indoor air quality can vary depending on the type of test that you’re doing, the size of your home, and the equipment that’s being used. A professional air quality test will typically only take a few hours.  If you opt for a DIY air quality kit, you can expect to wait for days or even weeks to get the results from a lab.

There is a wide variety of things that can impact the quality of the air inside your home. Some common pollutants include: dust, mould, smoke residue, pet dander, and cleaning chemicals. More often than not, poor indoor air quality is the result of a problem with your home’s ventilation system.

Great question! We pride ourselves in being constantly vigilant and always on the lookout for the best air quality testing equipment. We religiously test and re-test the gear before we deploy it in our Ottawa air quality testing services for home and office. At Enviropure, we make sure we are using state-of-the-art technology for indoor air quality testing. We look for air quality testing products that earn consistently superior ratings and reviews. Our goal is to continue to offer the latest in air quality testing gear so that you’re getting comprehensive results and can breathe better air.

100%! Unfortunately, as we have “progressed” as a society, with these advancements have come some pretty unsavoury byproducts. We’re all familiar with outdoor air pollution, and the effects people suffer when breathing poor air. Well, indoor air quality has followed suit in many of the same ways. Homes, offices and other structures contain a variety of chemicals, materials and potential indoor air contaminants. Older homes and offices, for example, may contain asbestos. Some homes have radon present. Mold, dust and other harmful materials are present in many structures. The only way to know whether you are breathing clean air – and to find out how to make it cleaner – is to perform indoor air quality testing.
