Let’s imagine that you have health symptoms that occur mainly when you are at home. After a brief look around your house, you discover traces that suggest the presence of mold. At this stage, there is absolutely no point really in having an air quality test done, because you see the main contaminant yourself, which is mold.

The first step is to identify the cause or causes behind the appearance of this mold and to find solutions to fix it. This is when you need the first service, i.e. technical expertise and problem solving. With this service, a building expert will be able to go back to the source of the problem by identifying exactly what causes mold growth and then give you steps to fix it for good and not have it resurface afterwards.

In our second scenario, imagine that you are not sure what is causing the discomfort you feel when you are always at home. Again, doing an air test at this stage can be a completely unnecessary expense. It should be noted that no home is immune to poor air quality. Contrary to popular belief, the age of a building is not a predominant factor when it comes to the presence or absence of contaminants in the indoor environment.

Although mould is very often responsible for the health problems associated with poor indoor air quality, we must not lose sight of the fact that our homes can contain many other agents harmful to health, such as chemical substances, biological irritants and many others. This is where we offer you our second service, the health check of your home. The purpose of this air quality assessment service is to identify potential major air contaminants that are present in your home, not just mold.

This service consists of a visual inspection and also with the use of instruments that are essential in order to paint a clear picture of the contaminants that are present in the dwelling, to also evaluate the air renewal that you have, the fresh air renewal, to measure the presence of radon, to specifically look for mold in very hidden places and much more. Then, in a report that will include points that have been verified, the evaluator gives his assessment of each situation that will be encountered, as well as easy and accessible solutions to solve the vast majority of problems.

Testing the indoor air quality of a house by means of an air test can tell if occupants are exposed to mould spores, even if there is no evidence of mould.

This test reveals the presence of mould. That is why it becomes useless to perform this test if we can see with our eyes a growth of mould on different surfaces, whether it is on the walls, wood, concrete or inside the attic of the roof. With this air quality test, you will then know if you are in the presence of those that can be hidden in the walls or under the basement floors, for example, without having to make an opening in your walls.

But beware, this service gives you a pure and simple result, but does not provide you with any clues as to the reasons behind the presence of this mould. To do this, you must return to our first service, which is technical expertise and research into the causes.

 

In short, you have black spots on the bottom of a wall? What you need is to determine the causes and the solutions with the expertise service. You don’t see mould, but you have symptoms? You need a health check for your house. No particular contaminant is detected during the health check and you are still concerned about air quality and the potential risk of mould somewhere hidden? Then we can proceed with the airborne mould test.

If you have any questions about this video or any other problem associated with your building, we invite you to contact us. At Legault-Dubois, our technicians, experts and air quality evaluators have no other product to sell you. You can therefore rest assured that they offer you impartial, independent expertise and a fair and complete picture of your situation.
