idle is to high. Smoke test

The idle is 950rpm it is maybe 75 rpms higher that normal,also I am getting 1189, 1188 codes talk to Active, Craig said that I have a small vacume leak.
Correct me if I am wrong but smoke test will be the most cost efficent way to detect and neutralize the problem, if yes where in north york/ vaughan or mississuga area can I get it gone?

If the codes are no longer faulting, the reader will show that the ECU still has a history of the codes.
