ASBESTOS

Asbestos fibers in the form of dust released into the air can be a health hazard with long-term exposure. However, if asbestos is intact or sealed properly, the hazard is minimal or non existent. Sampling for asbestos can be referred to a qualified lab. Click for more information on asbestos..

CARBON MONOXIDE (CO) TESTING

Homes today are much more air-tight than ever. With many more appliances that exhaust to the outside, there is a much greater risk of producing and retaining carbon monoxide (CO) in homes than ever before. This is evidenced by cases where occupants of houses have been killed by carbon monoxide poisoning. Tests have also indicated the cumulative effects of low dosages of CO on the human body. With these facts in mind, it would be a good idea to evaluate the risks a house poses to this problem. We have state-of-the-art equipment that samples air and gives the concentration of CO under present conditions. Although there are many variables to the testing that can be performed and it is impossible to test all risks, our testing will give a strong indication of the risks present for this deadly killer.

LEAD PAINT INSPECTION

Lead based paint can be found in homes built prior to 1978. It can create a health hazard especially for children. Our subcontractors are state certified lead evaluators. Their extensive reports meet all state EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) guidelines. Click for more information on lead-based paint..

PEST INSPECTION

A pest inspection, sometimes referred to as a termite inspection, is included in the basic inspection. Our inspectors furnish FHA approved reports following a thorough inspection for wood destroying organisms such as ants, termites, and powder post beetles.

RADON in AIR TESTING

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the world, second only to smoking. Radon is the by-product of uranium decomposing in the earth. Radon gas rises through the earth and comes out in free air and dissipates. If this gas comes out in a basement of a house and is allowed to concentrate, it becomes a health concern. The greater the concentration, the greater the health concern. These factors are further complicated if the person is a smoker or has a compromised immune system. We use state-of-the-art continuous tamper resistant monitors to test for radon concentrations. These monitors record hourly readings of temperature, humidity, barometric pressure and radon. Further information can be obtained through EPA publications or their web site listed in the links section of this site. Click for more information on radon.

SEPTIC SYSTEM INSPECTION

We strongly recommend a thorough evaluation of this system if your house has on-site sewage disposal. If this system fails, the repair costs could be significant. Our septic inspections include evaluating the structural integrity of the septic tank, the bacterial action of the tank on wastewater, and the condition of the soil absorption field. We can arrange for pumping of the septic tank at an additional cost. This pumping should be performed at the time of the inspection.

WATER TESTING

Our state approved laboratory provides a wide range of tests. A Basic Profile includes bacteria tests (potability) and inorganic materials tests. The potability determines if the water is safe to drink and the inorganic materials tests determine the user-friendly status of the water. Additional tests can be performed for volatile organic compounds, lead in water, radon in water, and any other contaminate which is of concern.

WELL FLOW TESTING

Our well flow test addresses the question as to whether you will have enough water for domestic purposes. We test the flow at 4-5 gallons per minute for one hour. If the flow is maintained at this rate, there will generally be an adequate supply of water. The variables include number of people, lifestyle, pump capacity, and static water storage as well as other factors.
