It’s an unfortunate fact that home inspectors are often not mould experts. When inspections are done on new homes, revenue properties, or even just your own house, things can be missed. A home inspection helps to reduce your risk of buying a home with costly problems, but it isn’t perfect and often misses things. Hidden mould and the warning signs that come with it are often things that are missed. That’s why it may be in your best interest to also have a mould inspector look over any property you’re considering purchasing.
Lab Tests are just one of the things Amity Environmental does that your average home inspector can’t. From years of experience, we know where mould likes to hide. When we find suspect areas in your home, we can take a swab of the surface and run lab work to verify if any mould is present. If our lab does find any mould, we’ll know where the sample came from and what types of mould are present. This will help us explain your options and the next steps you need to take.
Visual Inspections involve a lot more than just looking for fuzzy black spots on the walls. Once mould is visible, almost anyone can spot it pretty easily. At Amity Environmental, we take our visual inspections to the next level. We’ll be looking for humidity and condensation problems. We’ll also keep an eye out for any water damage or swollen walls that might indicate a hidden problem. Finally, we’ll make sure to check all the nooks and crannies that often go forgotten.
Air Quality is an important part of any mould inspection. Our air quality tests will verify if the air in your home has a high concentration of mould spores. Mould spores are a natural part of air. We breathe them in all the time in our homes and outside at the park. However, when they reach high concentrations, people can start to feel sick and have allergic responses to the spores.
Removing mould is very expensive, and we want to help Calgarians avoid that cost. That’s why we try to post so much content explaining the importance of controlling your home’s humidity. However, having a mould inspection done before purchasing a property is just as important as taking care of your home after you’ve already bought it. The experts at Amity Environmental can help.
