"I was qualified as an expert witness by the Honourable Judge. D. Bogdasavich to give opinion as evidence in the area of mold growth and related mold information in a court case at Regina Provincial Court

Environmental Commercial and Home Inspections (Mold)

A certified inspector will come to your business or home and perform an inspection. From this they will be able to show you the extent of your problem if there is one. They will be able to tell you what caused the mold growth, how to stop that cause and how to proceed in making your building safe again. Thermal Imaging Camera Technology is an invaluable assessment tool.


Grow-op Assessments

A certified inspector will do an inspection of the property, take photos, samples and gather all necessary information to assess necessary remediation procedures.  A report will be issued with a quote to consult, remediate and rebuild to original condition. Thermal Imaging Camera Technology may be used.


Mold and Asbestos Testing

A certified consultant will perform air or/and bulk samples for mold/asbestos, depending on your needs.  Specialized equipment and techniques are used for sampling. All analyses of samples are done by an independent company, results are sent back to us to prepare a user friendly report.  These reports are short and to the point.


Asbestos Consulting and Assessments

A certified inspector will come on site to evaluate the present situation, make recommendations and proceed as instructed. Sampling, both bulk and air can be done, evaluation of samples are done independently.


Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment

Inspections are done by top environmental consultants with construction backgrounds and training. Inspections include examination of potential soil contamination, water dainage, possible asbestos and mold issues, hazardous substance storage, obvious building deficiencies and building envelopes. Reports are direct and to the point.


CMHC Indoor Air Quality Inspections (2004)

A certified inspector will come to the property in question; do a complete indoor air quality inspection identifying air quality issues.  A report will be put together and sent to the owner with issues and solutions.

 


Home Inspections for home Buyers

We put all of our experience on the line to bring a new home owner the peace of mind when buying a home. This is a real inspection by a 30 year construction veteran with environmental experience. Buyers must be present to go through the home room by room, and we can also supply estimates of cost of repairs! Written reports have an extra charge. Every year we examine homes for mold that have been inspected by Home inspectors with no building background. Be Careful!  What is your new home worth if you can't live in it?  Thermal Imaging Camera Technology is available here.


Construction Consulting (Reno and New)

We offer a consulting program, with a construction expert of 30 years with environmental certification, when you are building or renovating. Today anyone owning a hammer is a "carpenter". Renovations are expensive and many times within a year we are called in to "clean-up" after a previous contractor. We will come to your property, discuss the project, help with design and PROPER procedures to ensure the contractor does your home right, healthy and safe for the future.  Basements, crawlspaces, building envelopes, windows, house wrap and insulation can all cause issues that cause mold and health problems. There is a special way to do all these things, be careful!


Certified Mold Remediation

Residential and commercial services are offered.  Strict protocols are adhered to regardless if the property is residential or commercial. New equipment, HEPA vacuums, specialty enclosures, trained workers and experience offers the safest remediation in the industry. Environmentally safe chemicals are used to protect from causing new environmental or health issues. CMHC and OH&S guidelines are exceeded in all remediations only professional conduct will be accepted on any site. These standards are what have made us first with Banks, School Divisions, Health Districts, CMHC and home owners.


Specialized Construction

Because all remediations are caused by a building deficiency or a contractor short cut, we have been forced to offer proven solutions to these problems. Our rebuild team will build or rebuild your project the RIGHT way. Our companies professionalism continues with this team, no short cuts, no untrained workers and no unfinished or will be back jobs. All jobs must be completed before moving on to the next one, unfortunately this limits the amount of work we can do, for qualified and properly trained people are hard to find and we will not compromise our reputation with people who have not been trained to our standards.


Crawlspace Repair and Finishing

Unfortunately in the past crawlspaces have been handled improperly and cause many air quality issues in buildings. We use a white ground barrier system that seals out the unfinished floor (usually dirt or sand) from the air we breathe in our dwellings. This system is sealed together and to the exterior walls so that no earthy smell, moisture or contaminants may enter the building causing humidity, foul smells or mold problems. Our team specializes in this system and has completed it in many homes and commercial dwellings including schools. This WILL make buildings healthier and safer to occupy.


Basement Repair, Rebuild and Finishing

Basements are #1 in causing mold problems in homes. For many years I made the same mistakes all contractors and home owners make, not finishing the basement to prevent mold and health problems. Through the years we have discovered that 90% of basements are finished in such a way that they create mold and health problems. We have a team that specializes in bracing, framing, insulating and installing the proper vapor barrier and joist end finishing, these steps are where all the mistakes are made and mold issues begin. Anyone can finish a basement once this procedure is completed.


Ground Grading

Many buildings that have mold issues have damp basements, heaved floors, wet crawlspaces and alkaline in them. These same buildings have grading issues and need to be addressed to stop the destruction of the foundations. We offer proper grading for buildings to move water and pressure away from the structure. We were forced to supply this service due to the lack of professional services in this area. We do not do landscaping, there are professionals for that, but get the proper grade first. We recommend at least a 20% grade, trust us, any less is unacceptable.
