TORONTO, Dec. 2, 2013 /CNW/ - Mike Holmes Inspections (MHI) is pleased to announce that it has added Radon Testing, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) assessments and Air Sampling to its full range of residential home inspection services.
Homeowners can now book Radon Testing, IAQ assessments and/or Air Sampling as an independent service or bundled with a standard home inspection.
"You should know if the air inside your home is making you sick—not to mention your kids," stated Mike Holmes, President of The Holmes Group. "Radon is the No. 1 cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. To me, radon testing and taking air samples is a no brainer. We should be doing this for every home."
The addition of these services follows on the heels of Bill 96, Radon Awareness and Prevention Act, which passed Second Reading in Ontario legislation last September. If passed, Bill 96 would require the province to raise awareness on radon exposure and its risks, and encourage homeowners to measure the radon levels in their homes.
"The environment inside our home has a direct impact on our health," stated Ashley Shojaie, Director of Mike Holmes Inspection. "These new services are another way of protecting our clients and making sure their homes are safe."
A home's indoor air can be 2-5 times more polluted than the air outside. In some cases, it can be up to 100 times more polluted. An IAQ assessment plus indoor air sampling can detect mould spores, mites and other pollutants present in indoor air.
"We're not waiting for legislation to change," added Holmes. "We know this is the right thing to do."
