What you need to know about mould in your home

This is not the first time you will hear about the effects of mould growth in your home, and it probably won’t be the last.  The damp and humid conditions that accompany the warmer and wetter summer weather increase the likelihood of mould formation in your home, and this is a tangible concern not only for your home itself but for the health of you and your family. In order to get a better understanding of how to address mould issues, spoke to mould inspection expert Tony Muscat of Inch by Inch Healthy Homes.
Mould and Health
“Many people underestimate the negative health effects that mould can have on their families” Muscat says.  Mould release spores that can be inhaled and may lead to an increased likelihood of experiencing respiratory issues such as coughing, shortness of breath, throat irritation and even allergic reactions.  This is especially true if you have children or the elderly living your the home as they are at the highest risk.
Moisture equals Mould
“ Mould needs moisture to grow and a thorough mould inspection is your best bet to identify and eliminate problem areas in your home.” Muscat says. Poor ventilation, excess moisture from bathrooms and kitchens and water leakage are all primary culprits.  Mould can live on wood, carpeting, furniture and drywall among other places where moisture builds such as attics, closets and basements. A thorough home mould inspection carried out by a professional is your best bet to ensure the problem is properly addressed.
The importance of professional inspection
“Mould growth may not always be easy to identify and remove, especially since it can occur within walls or even in your ceiling.” Muscat says.  Relying on experts and expert technology to carry out a mould inspection will ensure both the correction of the causes of mould growth as well as the proper removal of the mould itself. Inch by Inch Healthy Home technicians are trained to the highest standards in mould remediation and will carry out the processes that are most appropriate for your specific situation.

Due to the health risks involved, it is important to act promptly if you suspect mould growth in your home.

7 tricks to help you spend less on natural gas

     (NC) With thermostats turned down and windows pushed open, most people aren't thinking about their natural gas bill during the spring and summer months. But did you know that, next to home heating, the greatest source of natural gas costs comes from heating water and swimming pools?
Here are some tips from Enbridge Gas to help you manage your energy use through the warmer months:

Install a smart thermostat. Unlike ordinary thermostats, smart thermostats adapt to your routine by learning your schedule and temperature preferences. They automatically deliver comfort when you're at home and savings when you're out. Some utility companies even provide financial incentives for their customers who purchase these devices. Enbridge is offering their customers a $100 credit on their bill. Learn more about the Enbridge program at
Keep drapes and shades closed. Even if your windows are closed, they can still let a lot of heat into your home. When the sun is shining in, close your drapes and shades to keep your house cool.
Use a solar blanket on your pool. Cover your pool overnight to keep the water warm and reduce evaporation.
Wash clothing in cold water and hang to dry. Hot water is rarely needed for your laundry. Once clean, hang your clothes outside on a clothesline to dry.
Install low-flow showerheads. Low-flow showerheads help reduce water consumption and lower natural gas use.
Keep your furnace filter clean. Make sure your furnace is working at peak efficiency by cleaning or replacing the filter regularly. A clean filter will help a central air conditioner provide better airflow throughout your house.
Plug the leaks. Use the nice weather as an opportunity to weatherize your home. Small changes, such as caulking or weather-stripping doors and windows, can provide energy savings when the weather cools. More significant changes, like installing Energy Star windows, will help keep the cool air in during the warmer months.
