Mould growth can occur quickly after experiencing a flood, leaks or other forms of water infiltration. If mould growth is present workers/inhabitants may experience unexplainable forms of environmental sickness. Investigation should be undertaken to determine if an amplification site is present within the building and further air sampling should be undertaken to ensure that the indoor environment meets Health Canada Guidelines.

Mould is often toxic. The symptoms associated with it are commonly mistaken for everyday allergy symptoms such as:

  • Wheezing and shortness of breath
  • Respiratory infections
  • Asthma
  • Allergic reactions
  • Irritation of the ears, nose and throat

Residential Mould Testing

Toxic black mould may be growing in the damp surface areas of your home impacting your indoor air quality. Conditions are assisted by weather factors such as storms and flooding, which often result in mould developing in residential basements. Houses that previously harbored marijuana grow operations are also commonly contaminated with toxic mould. Residential mould inspections are the solution to helping you achieve a safe and healthy home. If you believe that you may have a mould problem in your home, then call today to schedule a residential mould testing appointment.

Commercial Mould Testing

One of the main factors in workplace air pollution is mould contamination. Fungal contamination can produce toxins that can raise costs by increasing employee absenteeism, turnover rates and health care costs. The benefits of a mould testing and detection service far outweigh the cost, since a “sick building” can cost your business its competitive edge. If you believe that you may have a mould problem at your business, then call today to schedule a commercial mould testing appointment.

This can potentially contaminating the building and open you and your company to civil and criminal liabilities.
