It’s Summer Vacation Time. Be careful your home does not flood creating mold growth.
After such a cold winter, us hardy Canadians can’t wait to relax in the sun. The beach, boat or cottage...summer is here for us. However, there may be an unpleasant surprise waiting for you when you get home. Mold!
Many of our clients in the past have come home to an unwelcome visitor. Mold growth on their walls and on their belongings due to a flooding or burst water pipe.

Unfortunately, home owners insurance in many cases does not cover this if you were not home. Check your insurance policy what your coverage is in the event of a water loss that leads to mold growth. Most policies demand that you have someone visit the home every 3 days to check on the home. An other alternative is to turn off the main water supply to the home. This way there can not be a plumbing issue or hot water tank leak leading to mold growth while you are away.

Duct Cleaning and Indoor Air Quality.

Many of our indoor air quality clients ask us about the benefits of duct cleaning and indoor air quality. In general, dirty ducts or a duct system with excessive accumulated dust can increase the overall dust load in the air. This is true for both residential and office duct systems. Dirty ducts can equal dirty air or poor indoor air quality.

However, it is important that the ducts are cleaned properly. If ducts are not cleaned properly or cleaned with inadequate suction, the dust particles can become airborne and also lead to poor indoor air quality.

Call us today...we can recommend duct cleaning contractors.

Green Homes mean better insulation but worse Indoor Air Quality

These days green home building refers to better insulation and tighter building envelopes. It’s all about energy conservation. However, the tighter the home the less air flow or air exchange and the worse the indoor air quality. A lack of ventilation or air flow from outdoors mean less fresh air coming into the home. Less fresh air mean more stale air.

Indoor pollutants such as airborne dust, chemicals from building materials and contents such as VOC’s including humidity can increase. This can lead to condensation as well as mould growth.

An increase in dust, VOC’s or mould can lead to respiratory issues or allergic reaction. Have your indoor air quality tested....and breathe.

Do you suspect poor Air Quality? Thinking of buying an Air Filter?
Before you buy items like air filters or HEPA filtered vacuums, it may be helpful to find out what your indoor air quality issues are. Not all indoor spaces have airborne dust issues and for that reason not all homes or offices need and air filter. In some cases you may not have a dust issue but other problems such as poor ventilation, radon,
mould or VOC’s. An air filter would not address any of these problems. If you suspect an air quality issue maybe an indoor air quality test is the best first step to better indoor air quality.
