Air Quality / Microbial Survey

The quality of indoor air is a major component of occupant comfort and satisfaction. Poor air quality can reduce productivity and increase absenteeism. Common indoor contaminants include dust, allergens, mould spores, exhaust fumes, formaldehyde, volatile organic compounds and other aerosols produced from activities conducted in the building. Poorly functioning or improperly designed ventilation systems also contribute to poor indoor air quality and occupant discomfort.

Total Safety’s industrial hygienists, biologists, engineers and technicians can tailor indoor air quality and/or microbial investigations to satisfy your specific needs. The scope may vary from a basic evaluation in a specific location to a comprehensive building assessment.

Services may vary by region. Please contact your salesperson to discuss offerings in your area.

Property investigation and testing. Assessment of residual pesticide, fertilizer, and chemical contamination. Site remediation.

Investigation & Testing

Former clandestine drug operations, such as illegal drug manufacturing facilities and marijuana grow operations (MGO) have become a major concern for property owners, real estate management companies and municipalities in British Columbia.

A clandestine operation leaves owners, mortgage lenders and homebuyers with a potentially contaminated property. The cultivation of marijuana in a home can result in mould growth, as well as residual pesticide and fertilizer contamination. The manufacturing of illegal drugs, including ecstasy and methamphetamine can result in serious chemical contamination from solvents, acids, metals and waste products.

The growers and/or cooks may have disposed of excess and waste chemicals in an unsafe manner, such as down the drains or dumping outside. These risks must be appropriately assessed, remediated and certified by professionals.
