Indoor air quality testing in Vancouver homes or any other city is recommended since poor indoor air quality can cause a number of respiratory health problems such as breathing difficulties and allergies. Given that we spend about 90% of the time indoors, the quality of indoor air is therefore very important. Mold is a major contributor of poor indoor air quality. Humid or damp conditions in homes encourage mold growth. Musty smells from carpets, wood, and gypsum board 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. Individuals with a history of asthma are at risk as mold spores may trigger asthma attacks. Without indoor air quality testing you can never know the quality of the air you’re inhaling in your home.
