Indoor air quality testing in Toronto

Indoor air quality testing in Toronto or any other city is recommended since poor indoor air quality can cause a number of health problems such as breathing difficulties and mold allergies. The purpose of indoor air quality testing is to determine the levels of airborne pollutants and provide solutions on how to get rid of them. Most of the indoor pollutants such as mold spores are invisible to the an aided eye and may not produce a noticeable odour. Given that we spend about 90% of the time indoors, the quality of air we breath indoors is therefore very important. Humid or damp conditions in homes encourage mold growth. Musty smells from carpets, wood, gypsum board and other organic materials are indicators of mold growth. Over time mold spores and other microbial contaminants build up on floors, carpets, upholstery and other surfaces from where they are re-suspended into the air when disturbed. Mold spores contain allergens and toxic compounds. Health problems associated with inhalation of mold spores include coughing, wheezing, and headaches. People with asthma are especially at risk as mold exposure may trigger asthma attacks. The only way you can ever know the quality of the air you’re breathing in your home and whether your health is at risk is to have the air tested.

Minimize Your Risk: Test The Air Quality In Your House For Airborne Mold Spores

To be sure, test the air quality in your home for airborne mold spores. While hiring an indoor air quality testing professional in Toronto can be expensive, you can test the air in your home yourself using the same equipment that professionals use.

What Do I Need To Sample Air Myself?

You need a sampling pump and cassettes into which the pump draws the air.

Where Do I Get The Pump And The Cassettes?

You can rent the sampling pump and buy the cassettes from MBL. After you do the sampling you ship or bring back the pump and the samples to us. Once we analyze the samples, we will send you the results.

What Information Do I Get From The Lab?

We give you a list of molds that are present in your house and their counts (per cubic meter of air) for each room that you tested. A comparison of the types of mold present in the indoors samples with those of the outdoor samples will tell us whether the spores present in your house originated from outside or are from mold growing within your house. Properly analyzed air samples could give an indication of whether there is hidden mold growth or not.

How Much Does It Cost and How Do I Pay?

We can guarantee you it’ll cost you a third or less the cost of hiring a professional! The standard fee for 2 air samples including pump rental, cassettes and lab analysis is $182 plus tax. If you are collecting more than 2 samples (recommended if you have a big house), each additional sample will cost $60. You and pay by credit card (Visa or MasterCard) by calling 905-290-9101 to provide your credit card details and to arrange shipping or pick up.
