We can undertake a number of environmental tests. Here are a few of the services we provide.
Mold, which grows in damp places, can progressively damage materials and furnishings in your home. They can also lead to health problems such as allergies, asthma, hypersensitivity, pneumonitis, and others. Our inspectors will collect air samples from inside and outside your home together with swab samples to identify mold. These samples will be analyzed to give you a final report.
Radon is one of the most dangerous indoor air pollutants. Since radon is an invisible, odorless gas, it is often neglected. But it is radioactive and this makes it a serious health hazard. Many cases of lung cancer can be attributed to breathing in radon. We can conduct short-term and long-term tests to measure radon levels in your home.
Asbestos is a fibrous silicate mineral. Though it is quite useful, airborne asbestos dust and fibers can cause serious illnesses such as cancer, asbestosis, and more over a long period of time. We can analyze the air quality in your home, collect swab samples from suspected areas, and test your home for asbestos contamination.
If you are buying a new house, we recommend that you have a meth inspection conducted. Methamphetamine is one of the most dangerous drugs and it is highly addictive. Your home can be contaminated by methamphetamine if someone produced it inside or even used it. Contamination can lead to allergies, nose bleeds, skin irritation, and other problems. We can collect swab samples from your home, which will later be analyzed in a laboratory to find out if your home is contaminated with methamphetamine.
According to the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, more than 1,000,000 children each year suffer from lead poisoning. If your home was built prior to 1978, there is a high chance that the paint that was used to coat your house contained lead. Lead poisoning can cause a number of health issues. We use state-of-the-art equipment to inspect our clients’ home for lead.
