Mold Inspection & Testing

SafeAir's certified mold inspectors assessing mold growth in Toronto homeMold is a health hazard that is appearing in homes across Southern Ontario. A mold inspection or mold testing can help determine what sort of problems your home or office faces, and help you return to a healthier, safer indoor air quality. While many people believe that mold growth is a warm-weather problem, the truth is that mold can grow at any time of year - the symptoms of a mold allergy are so similar to common problems like the cold, flu, and hay fever that it can be difficult to see where the true problem lies. 

Where Can Mold Grow Indoors?

Mold can be found growing in many places indoors, but there are a few places that it prefers. When we do mold testing in Toronto, we often focus on three different areas of the home: 

  • The basement is often a source of excess moisture or water leaks, especially when it’s completely underground. Washing machines, piping, and other plumbing issues can cause unwanted moisture, and a lack of air flow can cause it to linger. 
  • Kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms are highly susceptible to mold growth. Water is the key ingredient in mold growth, so it’s not uncommon to find mold growing in and around places where water can drip, splash, or leak.
  • In the attic, mold growth can often go undetected for months before it’s discovered, and cause serious health issues due to poor indoor air quality by the time mold growth is found.

What are the Signs of Mold Growth?

One of the most common indoor air quality services requested at SafeAir is mold inspection in Toronto. Several signs and symptoms of indoor mold growth indicate testing is necessary, and you don’t need to be a professional to notice them.

Here are the top 6 signs you should test for mold growth: 

  1. Water damage or leaks.
  2. Condensation on windows or walls.
  3. High indoor humidity.
  4. Warping drywall or wood.
  5. A musty odour.
  6. Sneezing, headaches, and congestion — especially when concentrated in one room.

Moisture and Mold Inspection

If there is one primary cause of mold growth, it’s indoor moisture. When we see high humidity levels or problems with leaks or hear of a recent flood, the SafeAir crew knows it’s time to roll up our sleeves. Mold can begin to grow in as little as 48 hours after water exposure, and there are plenty of ways that water can enter and stick around our homes.

Three of the most common reasons are:

  • Poor ventilation in high-humidity rooms like the bathroom
  • Leaks under sinks or behind appliances
  • Recent flooding

Mold testing can alert you to hidden pockets of mold growth in your home, but it can also identify areas of concern where there is no mold growth, but the conditions are suitable for future infestations. SafeAir can help by making recommendations to reduce your risk and can arrange for follow-up testing once the problems are corrected. 

Commercial Mold Testing Toronto

SafeAir has been servicing commercial clients for over a decade. Some of the common problems affecting businesses in Toronto are related to age and architecture. We often see older buildings with basement mold and issues related to water leaks or cracked and old foundations during mold inspection in Toronto. In office buildings, mold can be triggered by ventilation and air movement problems and spread through the HVAC system, making detailed testing and inspection invaluable.

What Happens During a Mold Inspection?

Mold testing can help determine if your symptoms are caused by mold growth and help us effectively - and permanently - eliminate it. During a mold inspection at SafeAir, we follow a number of steps to thoroughly determine the depth and breadth of any mold related problems. First, we usually start with both an exterior and interior examination to look for signs or symptoms of mold growth. We then often take air samples from affected or suspected rooms, which can help us pinpoint where a problem lies and how severe it is.
