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.
