Additional services as needed:
Radon Gas Testing
As InterNACHI Certified Radon Testers, our inspectors are specially trained to evaluate radon in your home. A 48-hour continuous monitoring test helps determine if radon mitigation is needed or if an existing system is working properly.
Our handheld scanners allow us to “see” through walls to uncover moisture damage, leaks, or insulation/ductwork issues. An infrared scan is included with most of our home inspections or can be scheduled separately when a problem is suspected.
Termite & Pest Inspections
Areas of high humidity and moisture can be prone to infestation by termites and other wood destroying pests. A home inspection can help prevent a costly repair or mitigate property damage.
Septic System Inspections
Backup from a septic tank can be a hassle and costly to fix. Real estate experts advise that all homes with a septic tank should be inspected before closing.
The quality of your water can have a big impact on the health of your family. Real estate experts recommend testing of all homes with a well before closing or whenever there is a concern about the supply or quality of your water.
Water Quality Testing
Testing your water can reduce your family’s risk of illness or exposure to inorganic materials when your home uses a private well, has older pipes that may contain lead, or when there is possible contamination from the surrounding area (such as after a flood).
Air Quality Testing
Poor ventilation, high heat, and high humidity can increase allergy symptoms. Air quality testing can give you valuable information when experiencing breathing, heart or lung issues or before purchasing a home for a sensitive individual.
Exposure to mold can cause a variety of health issues. Problems are most common after a flood or in homes with a history of water damage from roofing, exterior wall, or plumbing issues. Mold testing can help assess the severity and type of mold present.
Many homes built before 1978 are known to contain asbestos. Testing is recommended before renovating an older home to determine necessary precautions to decrease the risk of lung cancer.
Lead found in paint, plumbing, and other construction materials can be a serious issue, especially for young children. Experts recommend testing of homes built before 1978 if renovations are planned or if materials that may contain lead are exposed.
