Toronto Indoor Air Quality Inspections

In Canada we spend a large portion of our time indoors during the colder months.  The impact of winter weather often prevents us from replenishing inside air with fresh air from outside.  Thus, we often spend many days breathing stale air.  The quality of the inside air depends very much on pollutant sources inside the building.  Combustible products including tobacco, wood, coal, natural gas and oil are major contributors to toxic pollution in an enclosed space.  Other pollutants can include building materials, furnishings, insulation containing asbestos, wet  or damp carpet, cabinetry or furniture made of certain pressed wood products, products for household cleaning and maintenance, personal care items, central heating and cooling systems and humidification devices.  External sources such as pesticides, air pollution and radon can also affect indoor air quality.

Effects On Health

The effects of poor quality indoor air are as varied as the people breathing the air.  Immediate effects may show up after just a single exposure or it might take repeated exposures for symptoms to occur.  Symptoms can include irritation of the eyes, nose and throat, headaches, dizziness, and fatigue.  These effects are usually short-term and treatable (even as simple as eliminating the person’s exposure to the source of the pollution).  Symptoms of some diseases, including asthma, or hypersensitivity pneumonitis, may also show up soon after exposure to some indoor air pollutants.

What To Do About Indoor Air Quality

The best way to deal with this kind of “pollution” is to have a good exchange of air between the outdoors and indoors.  However, this isn’t always easy in our cold environment and that’s where Sick Building Solutions can assist you.
