What Does a Home Air Quality Test Detect?

Home air quality tests are used to uncover the source of poor indoor air quality. In some cases, occupants notice signs of compromised air quality and schedule air quality testing to identify the cause of physical symptoms. Other times, home air quality tests are a precautionary step used to prevent any exposure to harmful contaminants in the first place. At Inch By Inch Inspections, we provide comprehensive and professional testing services that surpass the effectiveness and detail of even the best home air quality test kit. With mold testing, we can also help property owners detect any mold spores or potential contaminants infiltrating their air and provide a clear and helpful action plan to restore your home.

Signs You Need Indoor Air Quality Testing

Sometimes homeowners will call Inch By Inch Inspections for air quality testing ahead of a big move or home renovation to prevent any exposure to harmful contaminants. Identifying these contaminants moving in and getting settled in a new home allows you to make the changes necessary to repair air quality problems, whether it's mold remediation or asbestos removal, with minimal hassle. On the other hand, property owners may notice that either they or other occupants are experiencing symptoms of a medical problem that cannot be linked to an actual illness. These symptoms include coughing, headaches, difficulty breathing, or even rashes, and they can all be linked to poor indoor air quality.

What Our Clients Say About Us

Hiring a construction contractor to renovate my house for the first time, I was not familiar with any of the DSS-related requirements.  So, it was quite reassuring to find someone like Tony who is trustworthy and knowledgeable. I also needed a quick turnaround for the completed DSS report and Tony delivered (on time, as promised).  In short, Tony was great to deal with. I would recommend him to anyone, anytime.   

Richard, Toronto

Tony did an excellent job with inspecting the house. He was very knowledgable in his field and thorough with his inspection. He carefully and patiently looked at both the exterior and interior of the building. He pointed out the deficiencies, what the risks are and how to rectify them. He answered all of our questions and made sure that we understood them. He offered his expertise and help if we needed.

Mandan, Toronto

I have heard a lot of stories about home inspection but I could honestly say that I had a great experience. I would like to thank Tony from Inch by Inch Home Inspection for the great experience. A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Tony through my realtor. I want to thank Tony for taking the time to answer any questions and any concerns I had about my home inspection.

Teresa, Toronto

Tony Muscat of Inch by Inch Inspections is extremely professional, caring and a prompt individual, when he heard we may have a mold problem he came immediately. Tony was worried with the level of mold that was contained in this recent purchased older home and he walked me through the process of getting rid of the mold and what dangers were involved. He paid the best attention to us, while we went through this horrible ordeal. The fact that impressed me the most was his vast amount of knowledge, and the dangers of each mould which there are many. He is extremely professional and equipped to handle any job. I would recommend Inch by Inch, (Tony) to anyone he is a concerned and serious individual, that cares about your family!!!!!!!
