Carbon Monoxide

This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas effects humans by reducing oxygen flow to vital organs. This can cause health effects such as Angina (chest pain) and lack of energy as the body cannot meet oxygen demands. In high concentrations, carbon monoxide (CO) can even cause death if not addressed quickly.

Commonly found in offices or homes that use fossil fuels heating systems. Improper ventilation of these burnt fuels results in the present of carbon monoxide gas. Even vehicles and workplace equipment such as forklifts, generators and any other gas, diesel or propane powered equipment.

Carbon Dioxide

This highly recognized workplace hazard is naturally occurring gas present in the air we breathe. In high concentrations, it can cause headaches, drowsiness, sleepiness and oxygen deprivation, all of which can create poor attention, loss of focus and a heightened heart rate.

CO2 is most commonly found in offices or homes with a high number of people and poor ventilation. Concentrations of carbon dioxide can be directly related to the amount of fresh, outdoor air being introduced in the building. Underperforming HVAC systems can limit fresh air introduction.

Particulates

Invisible to the naked eye, these particulates enter buildings predominantly from filtration systems. When inhaled, these particulates can cause allergic reactions and respiratory problems. They include any airborne matter that is .005 to 100um in diameter (dust, fumes, smoke, pollen and more).

Commonly found in offices or homes with poor or under performing filtration systems. Particulates also enter through buildings with poor seals (windows, doors, roofs etc). Older homes can be most subject to this as they shift and settle over time.

Bacteria

Although many forms of bacteria can be present in indoor air, one of the most common is Legionella. Legionellosis, or Legionnaire’s Disease, is the resulting health effect when Legionella bacterium is inhaled. Other forms of bacteria can cause health effects ranging from respiratory failure to toxic poisoning.

Legionella bacterium specifically grows in slow moving or still warm water. In many commercial buildings this is often the case with cooling towers or showheads. As the water evaporates it enters intake systems and is then spread around buildings. In homes, Legionella can be found in hot water heater tanks where it can also spread once evaporated.

Mold

Airborne mold spores can cause a variety of health problems ranging from skin irritation to cancer. With so many strands of mold present in everyday situations, the risk of exposure can be quite high. Sluggishness, drowsiness, irritation and headaches are often the early signs of mold exposure.

Mold growth is mot commonly found in damp environments such as basements, kitchens, bathrooms and attics. Once large enough, the spores become airborne and begin to circulate throughout a building. Although many molds are harmless,  others are toxic which is why is it important to know what you are dealing with.

Radon

This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is the number one cause of lung cancer in non smokers and is responsible for thousands of deaths every year in North America.

Found in rock formations near buildings and homes, radon is an atomic gas that comes as a result of the decay of radium.Radon gases can enter buildings and homes through foundation cracks, drains, construction joints, loose pipes, sump pumps and much more. Older homes are sometimes more prone as they shift and settle over time.

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's)

Volatile Organic Compounds, or VOC’s, result in a number of averse health effects but some of the most common are irritation, itchiness, drowsiness and fatigue.

VOC gas concentrations are usually much higher indoors than they are outdoors as the gases are emitted from things like household chemicals, paints, cleaning supplies, building materials, office equipment and more.
