One of the more overlooked features of any residential or commercial property is their indoor air quality health. Many factors inside and outside the property can create a buildup of pollutants in the air. These pollutants can result in short and long term health problems for anyone inside the affected property. Today’s technology allows for detailed air sampling and indoor air quality testing in Toronto and surrounding area. Professionals provide property owners with a detailed analysis of pollutants and other factors of poor air quality. Our team provides effective solutions for correcting the problem and preventing future air quality issues and health risks.
Some common pollutants that impact air quality are:
When you hire a professional home inspection company, such as Inch by Inch Inspections, you receive affordable solutions to resolve air quality issues and improve indoor air quality. The health message is clear. The air you breathe inside your home or office should not make you sick or impact your productivity. Air quality pollution is preventable by identifying the contaminants and their causes. Air Testing is therefore the first step in solving poor air quality. The contaminants Inch by Inch Inspections tests for depend on the indoor environment of your home or office. Mold is the number one cause for triggering allergies for some people. Symptoms may include nausea, stuffiness, and eye irritation. Additional conditions we look for are poor air circulation inside your home, especially if it has been built within the last ten years. Higher than normal levels of carbon dioxide can also produce symptoms such as shortness of breath and nausea. This can be due to the lack of outdoor air entering your home. When you are faced with a mold problem, or home air quality issues, trust a professional air quality inspection from Inch by Inch. We can identify and remove mold, asbestos, bacteria, high levels of CO2, air pollution and more.
Home air quality issues can likely be traced undetected mold growth. Mold is an organic fungus that can easily fester and develop in areas with poor air circulation and high humidity. Unmanaged mold can continue to grow and take over walls, fixtures, wood components and even carpets releasing a constant stream of harmful mold spores and bacteria into the airflow within the residence. Moldy air will create unpleasant odors and short term health issues such as:
Long term health effects such as respiratory disease, which can lead to premature deaths, are more severe. Air quality testing is the first step in detecting and eliminating the fungus and the symptoms that go along with mold present in the air.
Sometimes contaminants and pollutants will infiltrate your indoor spaces without any warning. It isn’t until its effects are felt physiologically that property owners realize there may be a problem. To schedule a home air quality test promptly, look out for the following signs of poor indoor air quality. The team at Inch By Inch Inspections has the technology and expertise to provide comprehensive air quality testing to help you identify and eliminate contaminants for healthier living.
Strange & Persistent Odours: Your nose is a preliminary home air quality test. When you notice new and unusual smells filling your home or indoor spaces, a more significant problem is likely at stake. While some indoor pollutants are odourless, others, like mold, emit a strong, pungent scent that should be followed up with air quality testing.
Physical Symptoms: The longer you or a loved one spends exposed to contaminants, the more your body will show symptoms. Sometimes symptoms will be similar to a common cold or flu, such as sneezing, coughing, and even runny noses and sore throats. But exposure can cause headaches or migraines, nausea, rashes, and difficulty breathing depending on the contaminant.
If you feel or smell any signs of pollution and contamination indoors, don’t hesitate to call the professionals at Inch By Inch Inspections.
Reduced air quality can easily be caused by factors inside the property as well as outside environmental issues. Older commercial properties that still used building materials that might contain asbestos must perform air quality testing to determine if the harmful product has contaminated the air. Faulty and inefficient HVAC systems and improper venting can also build up pollutants inside commercial spaces and warehouses. Businesses that are experiencing a reduction in productivity and increase in costs may have a ‘sick’ workforce that have been exposed to bad quality air. A detailed air quality test from a professional with commercial experience will reveal current and potential air quality issues and solutions.
Experience in both residential and commercial properties is necessary to really understand the how and why of air quality problems. Professionals know the main causes of bad air and through extensive diagnosis, can determine which pollutants are present and create the best course of action to reverse and improve localized air quality. When air quality testingreveals problems, contractors, Inch by Inch can employ air management solutions such as:

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.
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.
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.
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!!!!!!!
If it wasn't for Joe from Inch by Inch Healthy Homes coming into test the quality of the air in 3 condo's in our building we would have never known it was a gas leak from an outside BBQ which had been an ongoing problem for close to four years!!!!!!(the gas smell was going into the fresh air intake and then spreading through the 3 condo's!!! Thank You!
We called Inch By Inch Inspections as we needed the mold removed from our attic to complete the sale of our property. They were very professional and did a great job! Thank you Tony and Team!
Tony and Joe were really knowledgeable and great to work with! They explained everything thoroughly and were very responsive to questions. Thank you!
I contacted this company to do an air quality test after we had asbestos wrapping removed from our basement. They were the most reasonably priced. The young man came the same day and was very thorough about the entire process. I appreciate that Tony was able to get my results sooner than the previously date we originally agreed on.
Tony came to my home to help me inspect the potential root causes of some water damage in my home. Through his vast knowledge and the use of the latest technology, he was able to help me understand what led to the damage and how to better prevent it in the future.
