Attics are essential features of any home. They are necessary for creating balance, climate regulation, indoor comfort, and energy efficiency throughout the house. When the attic cavity is healthy and well-maintained, the indoor environment is safer, and so are the people in it. However, it is not uncommon for the attic to be contaminated by building materials or natural invaders. Two of the most common culprits of attic contamination are asbestos and mold. When your attic is affected by either, schedule mold removal in Mississauga and asbestos abatement with Inch By Inch Inspections.

Why Mold and Asbestos Are Found In Properties
Due to the inherent fire-resistant properties of asbestos combined with the lack of knowledge of its hazardous health consequences, it was commonplace in the insulation used to fill attics, walls, and ceilings in every kind of property across not only Toronto and Mississauga but all over the world. Asbestos fibres can become airborne when disturbed, leading to many health problems, the most serious of which are mesothelioma and lung cancer. On the other hand, mold is an organic problem that was not likely present at the time of installation, but grows over time, especially in older homes, where the attic may be damp, have poor ventilation, or be prone to leaks. Before beginning work in the attic, it's vital that you are aware of either contaminant. Contact Inch By Inch Inspections for high-level air quality testing, mold inspections, or asbestos abate in the Greater Toronto Area.
