3 Tests That Should be on Every Good Calgary Home Inspection Checklist

Home inspections can be confusing. What are some of the things that the inspector is supposed to check for? How can you be certain if the inspector is being thorough enough? Is it even worth it? Keep reading to learn what you should look for and why the cost of a Calgary home inspection from a licensed provider is worth every penny.


1. Air Quality Testing

Air quality testing in Calgary measures the quality of the air inside the home by testing for air borne contaminants like pollen, mould, mildew and other particles. Indoor air quality is a major concern for anyone suffering from asthma or other breathing difficulties. An air quality test can detect a number of different types of pollutants present in the air.


Why It’s Important

The air inside your home can have a major impact on your health. Consistently breathing in contaminants can aggravate asthma and allergy symptoms and also increase the number of colds and sinus infections that you might get.


2. Mould Inspection

A mould inspection will look for the tell-tale signs of mould and mildew and identify the source of the problem. Mould usually results from a build-up of moisture and humidity and can point to a leak in the plumbing system or a problem with the ventilation and duct works. At Rocky Mountain Inspection our licensed technicians use thermal imaging to find potential moisture issues that may be invisible to the eye.


Why It’s Important

Mould can damage furnishings and upholstery, walls, floors, ceilings and whatever else it comes into contact with. If left unchecked, a mould problem could result in thousands of dollars in damage and can cause a number of respiratory health issues.


3. Asbestos Testing

Asbestos testing with Rocky Mountain Inspection can locate and remove materials containing asbestos from inside the home. We’ll give you a full report of where asbestos is located and any issues that it might present in the future.


Why It’s Important
Prolonged exposure to asbestos can result in a number of respiratory related illness, including cancer. Removing asbestos from your Calgary home is vital to ensuring the health and wellbeing of your entire family.
