Whenever you suspect mold is growing in your home, the key step to ensuring you and your family’s safety is to have a mold inspection in Toronto by a professional. Mold can be one of the most insidious problems that a homeowner deals with, since unlike a broken window, mold growth can be hidden away in a dark corner or the basement or tucked under attic eaves. Mold can cause serious damage to your home and can be difficult to spot and nearly impossible to remove on your own, making a mold inspection in Toronto the only way of accurately identifying mold growth in your home. SafeAir is one of the GTA’s leading indoor air quality and air inspection companies providing mold inspection in Toronto and indoor air quality testing and analysis.
With over a 150 different types of mold (or fungus) affecting our indoor environment, unchecked growth can be a serious troublemaker in our homes. Mold growth in a residence or business can cause structural damage, property or merchandise destruction, and serious health effects that can land vulnerable people in the hospital. Having a mold inspection in Toronto if you suspect mold may be growing in your home can help to identify what is happening and the best method to fix it.
Mold can take many forms: it can appear as a 3D fuzz or as a discolouration or stain. Mold can be growing behind walls or in hard to reach places, or even inside soft furnishings. Rooms that have active mold growth generally smell musty, and quite often provoke allergic reactions in healthy people. Mold is a living thing and it wants to spread, so having any strange smells or growths checked out by a professional will help you get a head start if they turn out to be mold.
At SafeAir, our primary concern is good indoor air quality for our clients. Mold can be one of the biggest causes of poor indoor air quality, which is why we offer mold inspections. Mold spreads by releasing spores which then travel through the air to a new surface. While airborne, these spores can be breathed in or can land in sensitive organs, like the the eyes or nose. For healthy people, an allergic reaction can be a headache or persistent sneezing. For a young person, someone with a chronic illness like asthma, or an elder, mold spores can mean more frequent trips to the doctor or even hospital, and a worsening of symptoms. These serious concerns are why we recommend mold inspection in Toronto for clients reporting common mold allergy symptoms.
Mold growth is often found in the same rooms of your home for a good reason - they provide the trifecta of food, temperature and moisture. The most common places that we find colonies during a mold inspection in Toronto are the basement and the attic. Both of these spaces provide a lot for mold to eat (in the form of drywall, wood, insulation, clothing, stored papers, etc.), a stable temperature, and moisture. Mold can begin to grow within 48 hours of exposure to moisture, so it’s important to seal leaky pipes or check after a big storm.
If you’ve contacted us at SafeAir for a mold inspection in Toronto, it’s likely because you have a concern about some area of your home, whether it be from a recent water leak, because of a funny smell, or from visual evidence of mold growth. When we arrive to perform a mold inspection, we like to know about these areas, but we’ll check your whole building regardless.
A typical air test begins with a visual assessment for water damage and mold growth. Using specialized tools, a qualified SafeAir technician can then perform more in-depth tests, such as a laser particle count, which helps to identify problematic particles in your indoor air quality. We also take readings for carbon monoxide and dioxide, temperature, relative humidity, and dew points - rooms with radically low or high readings may have unseen problems. Other tools that we may use include thermal imaging to detect hidden moisture, air sampling for mold spores, and readings for sewer gasses or other chemicals. After your inspection, we provide our clients with a complete report that outlines any air quality issues, as well as detailed recommendations for remediation.
One of the benefits of choosing a company like SafeAir to do your mold inspection in Toronto is that our focus is better indoor air quality - our commitment to cleaner air means that we’ll never try to up-sell you on additional products or services.
