Indoor Air Quality Assessment

The indoor air quality services that we offer leaves you with extensive knowledge and information about the state of your home or office. We will outline everything from the composition to your home’s levels of pollutants. The reason for many of these usual pollutants can stem from dust issues, poor ventilation, inadequate levels of humidity in your home, water leakage (leading to mould growth), sewer issues, chemical off gassing, bacterial problems, and sometimes, the poor state of your building. The main benefit of ordering an air test is that it will show you exactly what you’re putting into your system everyday.

Overall, the only thing that can tell you the causes for your inadequate air quality is an assessment. It can truly test the amount of bacteria in your home. With this type of information, only then, can you begin to make changes. After we help you find the solution to your poor indoor air quality, you won’t ever have to be in a sick environment again. We take the time to perform high quality tests for your indoor air quality. We also perform forensic mould tests to further improve the air quality of your home or office.

Does an air quality test detect mold?

Indoor mold growth is a challenging problem in homes across the GTA that can lead to long-term health problems and complications. An indoor air quality test for spores can make a huge difference when mould growth is suspected but no visible signs of growth are present. Mold reproduces by releasing tiny spores (which can be likened to seeds) into the air; these spores then attach themselves to people, objects or pets or float through the air to start a new colony elsewhere. This reproduction system is unfortunately very effective - but it also means that an air quality test is your best weapon.

While inexpensive mold test kits available at hardware stores may seem convenient, they really only give yes or no answers - and when it comes to mold, the more information you know, the better able you are to deal with the problem. A professional mold inspection and air test will help you confirm the presence of these spores and to pinpoint the type and amount of spores present. This not only helps us design an efficient remediation plan, but it also helps you feel confident and safe in your home.

Reasons for mould growth

There are many reasons why your home may be suffering from mold problems, and many of them are easy to improve or fix without breaking the bank. Like human illnesses, ‘prevention is nine tenths of the cure,’ and by approaching mold as a sickness that affects your home, you can make a number of easy, positive changes to help your home feel - and do - its best to keep you and your family safe and comfortable.

Two common reasons for mold growth are moisture problems and a lack of ventilation.

Moisture Problems: 

Homes with high humidity or moisture problems (such as a leak or flood) are often plagued with mold problems. Moisture and water damage are the single most common cause for mold growth in the GTA. Mold spores can be present but remain inactive for years - until they are exposed to water or moisture in the form of humidity or condensation, which can then restart its growth. Mold and moisture can damage the structure of your home and lead to expensive renovations and remediation.

Reducing the amount of moisture in your home by installing ventilation, running dehumidifiers, airing out after a flood, and promptly fixing leaks can all make a huge difference in preventing mold growth. Places that commonly suffer from excess moisture in GTA homes are basements, bathrooms, laundry rooms, kitchens, and attics.

Lack of ventilation:

Mold thrives in places that are airless in part because air helps to dry out excess moisture. Places in the home where a lack of ventilation are commonly found are the basement and the bathroom.

The basement is a classic problem area for mold growth - it stays cool all year round, often has moisture problems due to leaks or floods, and has reduced traffic and ventilation. Opening windows or installing additional ventilation can make a big difference in keeping the basement dry, and homeowners with older properties may like to install a dehumidifier as well.

The bathroom can also suffer from mold growth because of a lack of ventilation. There’s plenty of water in sinks, bath tubs, showers and toilets, as well as steam and the potential for leaks. Installing an exhaust fan can help whisk moisture laden air out and bring fresh air into small areas like the bathroom.

Common indoor air pollutants

There are many different chemicals, allergens, and particles that can be detected in an indoor air quality test. Health problems caused by air pollution is a growing problem around the world, and is not limited to places with loose health regulations or rampant pollution.
