Symptoms of poor home air quality

But how do you know if you need to get your indoor air tested?

If you are experiencing unexplained symptoms and allergies, or are noticing unusual odours inside your home, it’s a good idea to conduct indoor air quality testing in yor home. Here are some more of the most common health symptoms associated with poor indoor air quality:

  • Respiratory conditions
  • Asthma
  • Coughing, sneezing, wheezing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Frequent headaches
  • Eye, throat or skin irritation
  • Dizziness, disorientation or mental confusion
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Worsening of allergies
  • Anxiety

All of these symptoms are also associated with long-term exposure to toxic mold. Molds like Stachybotrys chartarum (black mold) can cause debilitating health effects that can prevent people from performing everyday tasks and enjoying life.

How does air quality testing work?

A Mold Busters technician will collect a sample of air from the area(s) you are concerned about. To do this, a specialized bioaerosol sampling pump is used (pictured above). The technicia will then send your air sample(s) to an accredited microbiological lab for detailed analysis. The results reveal the exact types of mold spores present and their concentrations.

You will receive a report explaining the results along with our professional recommendation for remediation if mold or other air pollutants have been identified.

Mold Busters’ air quality testing services in Ottawa, Gatineau and Montreal are the fastest and most accurate way of finding out if the air you’re breathing in is clean and safe.

How much does air quality testing cost?

The cost of an air quality test largely depends on the type of test you are getting (viable or non-viable). Viable testing is substantially more expensive than non-viable testing–almost double the cost.

Another factor that influences the price of an air test is how fast you want your results. Typically a turnaround of 24-48 hours will cost more than the regular service.

Finally, each indoor environmental professional has their own pricing system and some variance in costs can be expected. Contact Mold Busters today to get a quote.

Proper air quality is crucial for preventing long-term health problems associated with exposure to indoor air pollutants.
