Even if you don’t see any visible mould in your home or business, you may still have harmful mould contaminating your property and the air you’re breathing. To find out for sure, the first step is to call the experts at Breathe Easy Eco Solutions for a free mould inspection. We can often find a mould source that you may have missed. If you do have visible mould in your property, we don’t recommend a mould air test since the results are bound to be positive. In these cases, it’s better to treat and remove the mould rather than test the air. However, in certain circumstances, an air test may be required, and our certified testing experts are happy to help. Our mould air test and inspection is followed by a report from a professional lab and our expert interpretation of the results. Count on our team for prompt services when in need of mould and asbestos testing in Winnipeg and surrounding areas.
When performing indoor mould testing, we also take a control sample to determine the level of outdoor mould. Although not all companies take the time to take a control sample (particularly in winter conditions), we almost always do due to the many environmental factors that can have an impact on your mould reading. There is no legal guideline for how much mould is too much in an indoor environment, but a general goal is to have the indoor and outdoor levels very close to equal.
Our cost for mould air testing is $399 plus GST within Winnipeg and $499 plus GST outside the city for up to 3 samples (including the control sample). This includes lab fees and professional analysis. Additional samples can be taken for $70 per sample, and a nominal mileage fee may apply to clients outside the City of Winnipeg.
