Your home is supposed to be the safest place for you and your family. Not too many people think about the air quality inside their home. In fact, poor indoor air quality could potentially lead to serious health hazards. In order to determine if your indoor air quality is safe, you need to hire a Montreal certified home inspector to perform the test.

Over a period of time, air ducts can contain smoke residue, bacteria, and mold. Exposure to these pollutants can be harmful and cause serious illness and health issues. We breathe constantly in our homes all day long and while we sleep. You may not know it, but there could be dangerous toxins lurking in you’re home.

You may have a problem with your indoor air quality if you’re experiencing eye irritation, nose irritation, throat irritation, headaches, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, rash, fatigue, cough, chest tightness, or any other symptoms.

During an indoor air quality test, detection of dust, pollen, mold, fungus, pet dander, bacteria, tobacco smoke, carbon monoxide, and much more is inspected.

Analyzing the air inside your home to give you peace of mind knowing you’re breathing good quality air. Ensuring your home is clean, safe, and out of harms way is a priority of ours. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you avoid these problems and have an indoor quality test by a Montreal certified house inspector.

One way to test for indoor air quality is to use your nose. If you’re inside your home right now, take deep breath out, and then a deep breathe in. If the air you breathe in is odorless, feels and smells like fresh air you probably have nothing to worry about. On the other hand, if you smell something “fishy” you may have an indoor air quality issue. Either way, it’s best not to take the risk and conduct a test for a full proper assessment. Here at YG Home Inspection Services in Montreal, we inspect all aspects of your indoor air quality. Don’t hesitate to call if you suspect such a problem or issue with your home.
