Mold Inspection and Testing
Mold Inspection and Testing in Montreal
Mold is not just a surface issue. You can wipe off and deep clean it all you want; however, this will not eliminate the root problem. If there is mold growing in your home or business, it is because of a systemic problem. This problem is causing conditions that allow mold to grow indoors. Common problems of this nature include condensation, leaks, humidity, inadequate circulation, high temperatures, flooding, and more.
Cleaning mold without addressing the root causes only makes your effort a temporary fix. Mold will return and create health problems, affect the value of your home and impact productivity. Air Labs provides thorough mold inspection services that reveal the deeper issues. Catching the problem at its source is essential to prevent further damage.

Frequently Asked Questions
After the telephone consultation, we can usually offer a reliable estimate.
If mold is observed during a pre-purchase inspection, an Air-Labs report will help you understand the seriousness of the issue as well as offer details on potential sources and recommendations towards solutions.
A typical inspection lasts between 1 and 2 hours depending on the size and scope of the mandate.
It is in the client’s best interest to have a professional indoor air quality professional assess and make recommendations prior to a remediation project. This allows for a “before and “after” inspection that can properly document if an abatement project was successful or not. As well, as a third party Air-Labs can impartially make recommendations without risk of any conflict of interest.
Yes. Too often home-sellers are called out by a house inspector for issues they could have easily resolved themselves. Do not lose a potential sale, and have an Air-Labs report on any hidden problems a home seller may not be aware of.
Humidity in contact with a decomposable that doesn’t dry efficiently is the source of all mould. This includes issues created condensation, water damage or relative humidity. Usually, mold growth is propelled by a lack of ventilation, which is why often mould is a hidden problem.
We begin with a telephone interview to understand the context and reason for the visit. On the inspection day, we will then walk through the area of concern with the client to assess the environment. Once the inspection begins our most commonly employed techniques include the following
1-Infra red camera / thermal imaging: This technology allows us to detail unusual changes in surface temperatures to assess for leaks or condensation problems.
2-Humidity meter: This instrument allows us to asses the moisture level at a depth beyond the surface. So if humidity is gathering behind said surface we can detect it and provide that percentage in the written report.
3- Air compressor: Otherwise known as an air pump this allows us to sample the air with accuracy. The pump is carefully calibrated at the beginning of each inspection to offer our clients the most reliable results possible.
4- Camera/Flashlight: To document our findings
5-We will also employ instruments to gather data related to relative humidity, temperature, dew point, carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide.
