Mold is a class of fungi that thrive in humid environments. Even if previous leaks have been fixed, residual moisture can create a breeding ground for a number of different mold species. Mold can cause respiratory issues as well as lead to chronic conditions and disease if not removed. It can spread fast in the right conditions and is often found in walls and vents out of sight. There are two standard types of mold inspections, Limited and General. Limited mold inspections consist of inspecting areas of your home determined by you and sampling areas of concern. General mold inspections consist of inspecting the entire house with samples being taken from areas of concern. In events where no visual mold is present, air samples can be taken or you may want to request an Intrusive inspection. Intrusive inspections will require drilling small holes into the walls, ceilings, and/or floors to confirm whether mold is present or not. In the event, that mold has consumed an area larger than 10 sq/ft it is highly recommended a profesional remediation service be called to remove the affected areas. Once remediation is complete it is also highly recommended that you have a Post Remediation Verification (PRV) to confirm that the remdediation was done properly and that the area is safe for you and your family.
Lead is usually found in old paint products. While it is not generally considered harmful unless the paint is flaking off, it will eventually break down and become a health issue for those who may be in the same vicinity. Lead inspections can offer you peace of mind by giving you the information you need to make the right decisions for your home or building.
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that results from the decay of uranium and thorium as they decompose into lead. It has no smell, taste, or color and is most often found in the lowest levels of a home, although it can affect the overall air quality. Breathing in radon has been linked to lung cancer and therefore is something worth testing for. It is impossible to know if your home or building has dangerous concentrations of radon in the air without a proper inspection. We work with the best labs and testing materials to provide you with the best radon inspection possible, because your health is of the utmost importance.
