Helping Neighbours since 2016

Since 2016, Ithaca Health and Environment has worked with our neighbours to help understand the environment in which they live and work. We accomplish this by providing Indoor Air Quality testing, mould testing. asbestos testing, and other environmental health services to residential, commercial, and industrial customers in Alberta.

North Americans are believed to spend approximately 90% of our time indoors, and Ill-health associated with our indoor environments, or “Sick Building Syndrome“, is estimated to impact more than 25% of all homes and workplaces. These illnesses cost many billions of dollars each year in medical costs, lost time, and lost productivity. Symptoms of Sick Building Syndrome may include:

  • Cough
  • chest pain
  • shortness of breath on mild exertion
  • edema
  • palpitations
  • nosebleeds
  • cancers
  • pregnancy problems and miscarriages
  • extrinsic allergic alveolitis
  • Legionnaire’s disease
  • humidifier fever

Our work is based on a true passion to promote healthy living and working spaces by investigating our environment for potential sources of poor environmental health such as mould, bacteria, and viruses, chemical contaminants like Volatile Organic Compounds (Benzene, Formaldehyde, etc,), Asbestos, Radon, or physical hazards like poor indoor air quality, noise, vibration, and so on. The list is endless.

Everyone deserves to be have a healthy family home and workplace, where we spend so much of our time. The costs to families and businesses otherwise is too great to ignore.

Get in touch with us to set up a consultation, or use the contact form below to see if our services are right for you.

I would highly recommend Ithaca health to anyone in need of environmental services. Thanks again James!

James has been extremely helpful. He clearly understands the chemistry of air quality and has gone way above and beyond to help me out with a problem at our home. It’s really nice to talk to a knowledgeable person who cares and this good at what they do. Highly recommended!

James was very professional and knowledgeable. He gave us a lot of positive feedback and answered so many questions. He also prepared an in depth report after his visit, which we really appreciated. I would highly recommend.

In dealing with a recent workplace issue, I was able to get professional, quick and comprehensive advice. The explanation of the services to be provided and the process involved in the analytical analysis was top notch. As well, there was also an assurance of confidentiality and the opportunity to discuss and review the findings with actual workable recommendations. We look forward to having the opportunity in working more with Ithaca Health and Environment if needed.

I had contacted Ithaca to schedule an appointment for someone to come inspect my rental unit for possible causes of symptoms I was having. James spent 45 minutes with me on the phone listening to my situation, problem solving, and explaining possible causes. He went above and beyond what I expected and is a wealth of knowledge!

I had contacted Ithaca Health and Environment to investigate some asbestos concerns I had. James was very helpful in addressing my concerns by informing me of the steps we needed to take as well as aranging product testing and developing a solution for our asbestous issues. Thanks James for your professionalism in helping us resolve our issue at very reasonable price. Dave Oldham

James is a wealth of information and very professional. That combined with his personable demeanour make him the only choice I would make if and when I require environmental testing. I would recommend James (and Ithaca) to anyone in need of home environmental inspection. If it wasn’t for him we would have purchased a home that, on the surface, looked like a great place to live but was riddled with toxic mould and a serious health hazard. Thanks again James!
