Toronto and the GTA is made up of established neighbourhoods populated with older homes and one of the biggest concerns for property owners is the presence of mold. Lack of air circulation and increased humidity are prime conditions for the fungus to take hold of an area and spread. Mold can develop fast creating unsightly visuals on walls and other components of the house but the actual appearance of mold is only the beginning as the fungus will release harmful bacteria and spores in the air. GTA property who suspect the fungus in their space should immediately perform mold testing, mold removal, mold inspection or mold remediation in Toronto to confirm the presence of the dangerous hazard.
Mold is one of the more tricky problems to visually detect as it can easily develop and fester in the most inaccessible places within the property. Finding and eliminating mold is critical for all types of property as the fungus can spread fast and damage walls and adjacent structures. But the real risks for the appearance of mold is health related and as the fungus develops, it will release a consistent stream of airborne spores and bacteria into the air within the property. Breathing in moldy air will have short term health effects such as:
Bad quality and moldy air can also create severe long term health problems due to headaches and poor sleep patterns. Mold testing in Toronto is an essential first step when any changes in quality of life occur.
The two biggest factors in mold growth is airflow and humidity. Bad or restricted airflow will not allow moisture to evaporate which means increased humidity in a defined space. Mold can easily start to develop in areas that experience high humidity with little to no air circulation. Common residential areas where mold can appear are:
Commercial spaces with exposed piping and complex engineering can also be susceptible to mold development and it would make business sense to perform mold testing in Toronto on a regular basis to confirm the presence of the fungus.
Professionals who are experienced with mould issues and familiar with current guidelines must conduct all sampling.

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 mould problem he came immediately. Tony was worried with the level of mould that was contained in this recent purchased older home and he walked me through the process of getting rid of the mould 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!!!!!!!
