Air / Mold / Radon
Are you worried about your indoor air quality? Lets talk about it!
Mold and Air Testing: Mold can cause all kinds of health issues in adults and especially children. I decided to take a mold course which further taught me about mold, what it needs to grow, ways to prevent mold, how to inspect for mold and ways to test mold. This included learning how to do air testing. One of the best ways to tell if you have mold is to test if the mold count in your air is high. This requires special equipment to obtain samples and a few days to send samples to a 3rd party lab.
Radon Testing: Radon is a colourless, odourless gas that can seep undetected into your home and cause lung cancer. Protect your family by testing your home for radon. Radon is a radioactive gas that is produced naturally by the breakdown of uranium in the ground. Since radon can't be seen, smelled, or tasted, it can get into your home undetected. In outdoor air, radon is diluted and therefore not a concern. But in confined spaces like your house, radon can build up to high levels and become a health risk. Radon can enter your home any place where the house touches the soil and there is an opening.
