Why Indoor Air Quality Matters

Citizens of Ottawa spend a whopping 90% of their time indoors. This is especially true in the cold winter months. In addition, new homes and buildings are becoming more and more airtight.

While this is great for energy efficiency, it does limit air exchange, which can compromise indoor air quality and lead to the accumulation of toxic pollutants like black mold spores in your home or office.

This is why so many people are struggling with symptoms like coughing, sneezing, runny nose and headaches on a daily basis.

Whether or not you have a mold problem, getting your indoor air tested is a good idea if you want to eliminate threats from your home and ensure good health.

Ottawa, Ontario

As Canada's capital, Ottawa is home to not the Canadian parliament, the Byward market, and countless other attractions that make it a beautiful place to live in and visit. Located in southeastern Ontario on the southern banks of the Ottawa River, the city of Ottawa has a population of just over 880,000, who speak English, French or both.

I have black spots on the walls of my Ottawa home. I think it’s mold, but I’m not sure. What should I do?

If you suspect a mold problem, the best thing you can do is to contact a professional and get it checked it out. Not all black spots on walls are mold.

A certified mold inspector will be able to come in and take an air quality test or surface sample, look for other signs of mold contamination, and identify the cause of the problem (usually some form of moisture intrusion). You might have a leaky pipe behind your wall, cracked foundation that’s allowing water to enter your home, or you might simply have a spider infestation.

Remember, if it is mold, the longer you wait, the worse the problem will get. A professional mold inspection will give you the answers you need to address the mold problem quickly and effectively.

Choosing a Mold Inspection Company in Ottawa

As most Ottawa residents know, the best way to size up winter in Canada’s capital is with three words: snow and extreme cold.

Unfortunately for Ottawa residents, extremely low temperatures can cause pipes to burst and heavy snowfall can result in major leaks and flooding in spring. Both of these factors increase your home’s risk of developing mold problems.

If you suspect a leak or a moisture problem in your home that could be fueling mold growth, contact a certified mold inspection company for a professional and thorough mold assessment.

A professional mold inspector will conduct a thorough visual diagnostic assessment and may even conduct testing for mold such as a mold swab test or an air quality test. The inspector should take the time to check behind walls and other hard-to-reach spaces.

Because there are a number of companies in the Ottawa area that offer mold inspection services, it’s important to know what questions to ask in order to find the best one for your needs.

How to choose a good mold inspection company in Ottawa

To help you make your decision, the experts at Mold Busters have compiled a list of questions you should ask potential mold inspection companies before making any sort of commitment.

  • What can I expect to see during a mold inspection?
  • What is the mold inspector looking for?
  • What equipment will the mold inspector be using?
  • How long does a mold inspection take?
  • What happens after the inspection? Does the inspector clean the mold?
  • What is a scope of work and why do I need one?
  • Will I get a written report after the mold inspection?
  • Can a mold inspection help in I’m in the process of purchasing a property?
  • Once the inspector has located the source of the mold problem, can I clean the mold myself?
  • How much does a mold inspection cost?
  • If I’m renting an apartment, who pays for the mold inspection: the tenant or the landlord?

Also, before you begin your research, it’s important that you know exactly what you are looking for and expecting from a mold inspection company, both in terms of price and service.

If you have any questions about the mold inspection process, don’t hesitate to contact the certified pros at Mold Busters Ottawa.

We had suspicions that we might have a mold problem starting to develop in our basement. Charles from Mold Busters alleviated our concerns by doing a visual inspection and using tools that checked for moisture behind panelling. He explained everything he saw and did (testing) with clarity, providing very useful information. He gave same day service, was very knowledgeable, and thoroughly answered all of our questions. I would definitely use this company again, and recommend it to others who may suspect mold. Our suspicions were unfounded, thankfully.

Excellent experience with Mold Busters. Called them to give me a quote for some mold removal after my sump pump failed. Was surprised they don't give free estimates at first. But now I know why!Charlie was the inspector and when he was down in the basement, he found some materials which were likely asbestos. We agreed to test them and sure enough, the lab revealed they were positive for asbestos! ALL OF THE OTHER COMPANIES OVERLOOKED THIS, and EVEN QUOTED ME TO REMOVE THESE TILES WITHOUT ANY PROPER ASBESTOS REMOVAL PROCEDURES in place. Ugh. What a joke.Naturally, we went with Mold Busters to do the work since they were the most thorough during the inspection. The crew came out in less than a week. Nice group of guys. They did a pretty good job! Would definitely recommend Mold Busters. They ACTUALLY KNOW what they're doing.

I like to bring in multiple companies for quotes on projects to make sure I’m getting the best value. Mold Busters was the second Mold Company I got in for a quote. Unlike the other company Mold Busters was on time and extremely detailed!They provided a thorough search of the area and even looked at other potential areas for the source of Mold. They gave me before and after pictures of their work. Speaking with the staff in the office was great too, friendly, helpful and quick at responding. I really liked the online booking, reviewing my invoice and making payment. I would highly recommend using Mold Busters if you are worried about a Mold issue.

Best customer service I've received in a long time, especially from a contractor type of company. Easy to book, appointment reminding emails, phone updates by the inspector on his way...everything was topnotch. I got Charlie as the inspector, who's also one of the managers. So much knowledge packed into his brain about this stuff. Ask for him if possible. Super impressed by it all. Will use again if needed (hope not). Oh yeah, got my report with pictures in like, 2 hours after he left. Unreal service.A+
