Air quality testing for mold in Carleton Place
Not sure if that’s mold growing in your home? We can give you a definite answer with our indoor air quality testing services.
With this quick test, our mold inspector collects a sample of air from your home and sends it to an accredited third-party laboratory for analysis. The results accurately identify any mold spores present in your indoor environment. You’ll see the exact type of mold as well as the number of spores identified in the sample. That way you’ll know if you’re dealing with a big or a small contamination, and even if you have black mold (Stachybotrys chartarum).
Mold is one of the most common air quality issues in Carleton Place homes. Get your home checked. Book your home air quality test today!
How mold affects your indoor air quality
Let’s say the results of your indoor air quality test come back positive. Why should you be concerned?
Different species of mold possess biochemical properties that can result in inflammation, allergies and even toxic health effects.
Health Canada considers any indoor mold growth a significant health hazard. It warns that living in a damp or moldy environment can result in:
- Irritation of the eyes, nose and throat
- Coughing, wheezing and mucous buildup
- Shortness of breath
- Worsened asthma and other breathing difficulties
To protect against exposure to toxic mold, Health Canada advises homeowners to thoroughly clean any indoor mold. This includes hidden mold, which may be growing behind walls, underneath flooring or above ceilings.
A thorough visual inspection of your home is therefore necessary in detecting potential threats to your health. In addition, indoor air quality tests can help you identify hidden mold or mold growing hard-to-reach areas.

Kill mold for good
Killing mold is not just about scrubbing away at the surface of a material until it looks clean. Unfortunately, it’s a mistake that many homeowners make.
Since mold attacks wood, drywall and other porous materials, it is critical to kill the mold growing deep within the pores in order to get long-lasting results.
If the mold grows back after cleaning, this is a sign that it wasn’t cleaned thoroughly or that the source of moisture has not been fixed. In either case, the advice of a professional mold removal company is required. Call Mold Busters today to see how we can help you.
Service Areas Across Carleton Place
This small town of slightly over 10,000 people is situated in Eastern Ontario, roughly 50 kilometers from Ottawa.
The Mississippi River and Mississippi Lake bring plenty of wildlife and natural beauty but also moisture.
This outdoor moisture turns to indoor humidity, which increases the risk of mold growth. Therefore, residents should be especially vigilant in checking their homes for mold and removing it if any is found.
We service residential, commercial, goverment properties across Carleton Place.
We service rural areas too!
What causes mold?
If you have mold, you also have a moisture problem on your hands. This is because all mold growth is caused by some form of moisture—dampness, humidity, condensation or water from leaks and spills.
To find the cause of the mold, you must look for the source of the moisture. Here are some of the most common moisture issues in homes around Carleton Place:
- Water damage or flooding
- Plumbing leaks
- Condensation on walls or condensation around windows and doors
- High relative humidity
- Poor ventilation and lack of exhaust fans
- Damaged roofing
- Cracked foundation
If not repaired quickly, these moisture problems can lead to black mold in the affected area—not to mention a number of other air quality issues in your home.
Mold grows very quickly. You have as little as 24-48 hours after a moisture intrusion to dry the affected area, otherwise mold will grow.
Once cleaned, mold will grow back if the moisture problem is not fixed. So, to prevent regrowth, you need to find the underlying moisture issue and repair it.
