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:
- chest pain
- shortness of breath on mild exertion
- 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.
