Committed to Your Health and Safety
Failure to detect and address radon, mold, and moisture intrusion in your home can harm your health. To prevent this, our knowledgeable team quickly pinpoints the affected areas in your residential property so you can resolve the problems before they worsen.
Not all system and structural issues of your home can be seen by the naked eye. To help detect and locate these potentially problematic units and areas, we use thermal imaging in our inspections. Through this method, our team could give a more in-depth assessment of your home’s condition, identifying issues concerning:
- Electrical Panels
- Hot Water Heaters
- Problem Areas in Your Roof
- Add furnace heating
- Mold/moisture intrusion
Thermal imaging is a key component in our home inspection. Our infrared cameras enable us to meticulously inspect your home with minimal impact on your property’s integrity.
Testing your home for radon is essential to protecting your health as well as that of your family. Even though you can’t see, smell, or taste this radioactive gas, it could cause a huge problem in your home. According to the Surgeon General's office, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that about 21,000 lung cancer deaths are caused by radon yearly.
Some studies suggest that children may be more sensitive to radon exposure. This may be because young people have a higher respiratory rate and rapidly dividing cells, making them more vulnerable to radiation damage.
To help detect the presence of radon in your home, consider having it inspected by our team. Our technicians are certified to read and give on-site results. We can measure the level of radon in your property with the use of continuous radon monitors. Our precision airborne alpha radiation detection instruments have the following features:
- During a stand-alone operation, these continuous radon monitors can read and store test data for eight days.
- Our quality monitors can take 22 measurements per hour and compress into hourly averages.
- Their electrometer detectors and onboard computers have a low-current requirement, so they are considered as truly portable, self-contained continuous radon monitors.
- They have a unique patented electrometer as well as an open-grid probe design, making them very suitable for a variety of radon measurement applications.
Molds are living organisms that grow naturally. These fungi have hundreds of types as well as many colors and shades apart from black. Often referred to as mildew, molds are related to mushrooms and yeast.
Most of the time, molds thrive in areas with warm, damp, and humid conditions. They are often found in basements, attics, and other rooms where there is little air movement.
Indoor mold can grow almost anywhere—on carpets, ceilings, walls, furniture, and more. Some of the causes of its growth are:
- Spills From Bathtubs or Showers
- Water Leaks
We can only see and smell mold when there is a large quantity of it. However, no one should wait until this fungus spreads throughout his or her home. This is because toxic molds, such as Stachybotrys, produce spores—tiny particles that float in the air and often cause indoor air quality and health problems.
Molds affect people differently when they are breathed in. Some people experience allergic reactions, including:
- Difficulty in Breathing
- Runny or Stuffed Nose
- Watery Eyes
Being exposed to huge amounts of toxic molds can be hazardous to your health. That is why you should immediately schedule a mold inspection or request mold-testing contractor recommendation if you suspect that your home has mold. Contact a certified mold specialist right away if your property has black mold, or if you’ve spotted mold in your attic, basement, or anywhere else in your house.
