Termite Inspection

We identify the wood-destroying insects inside your house. It is highly recommended that homebuyers protect themselves with a termite inspection prior to purchase. Termites can cause serious, lasting damage to your home. Termite control and damage may set you back thousands of dollars and this might not be in your budget. The best preventative measure is a termite inspection.

Wood-destroying insects and other organisms can cause serious problems in the wooden structural components of a house, and may go undetected for a long period of time.
Our professionally trained and certified inspectors inspect thoroughly to determine if there is an infestation, damage, and/or conditions that could invite a termite attack, or the need for remedial control measures.

Our inspectors check the foundation of the house, garage and other buildings for shelter tubes coming from the soil. We look closely around porches, connecting patios, sidewalks, areas near kitchens and bathrooms, and hard-to-see places. We also check window and door frames, and where utility services enter the house for termite infestation or wood decay. Also, we look behind shrubbery and plants near walls. Our inspectors pay special attention to areas where earth and wood meet, such as fences, stair carriages and trellises. Open and check any exterior electrical meter or fuse box set into the wall, a common point of infestation.

Our inspectors carefully check all doors, window facings, baseboards, and hardwood flooring. Discoloration or stains on walls or ceilings may mean that water is leaking and can decay wood, and this can aid termite infestation. We inspect where plumbing and utility pipes enter the foundation and flooring. Also, we examine the attic for shelter tubes, water leakage, and wood damage.


Mold Assessment

Our certified and licensed inspectors begin by researching the property’s recent history to discover if there has been a flooding problem on the house. We further collect information regarding past water leaks, plumbing leaks or other types of moisture issues on the property. This provides insight as to what type of mold issues may be present on the property. The next phase will be a thorough visual inspection of the outside and inside of the property. The inspector will be looking for signs or conditions that may encourage mold growth, as Mold will grow in places with a lot of moisture, such as around leaks in roofs, windows, or pipes, or where there has been flooding. Mold grows well on paper products, cardboard, ceiling tiles, and wood products. Mold can also grow in dust, paints, wallpaper, insulation, drywall, carpet, fabric, and upholstery. We will Investigate any signs of past or present water intrusion, which can promote mold growth. We will take samples of any suspected mold for laboratory analysis. A minimum of 2 Air samples will be taken, one inside and one outside of the house. Surface sample are collected as required. All samples taken will be sent off to the lab to be tested. The most common indoor molds are Cladosporium, Penicillium, and Aspergillus.


Radon Gas Test

Radon Gas Test indicates the level of radon gas inside your home as most radon exposure occurs inside homes. We use most advanced professional grade Continuous Radon Monitor. Its detector technology is based on the trusted 1028 design that utilizes advanced detection algorithm resulting in high sensitivity, while also providing superb immunity to external radio interference.This professional grade Continuous Radon Monitor is equipped with a tamper sensor, and programmable PIN protection.
You can take steps to reduce and control the amount of radon in your home. Testing is the only way to determine radon levels. EPA guidance suggests mitigating if levels are at or above 148 Becquerls/meter3 (4 picocuries/liter).’

Radon is a naturally-occurring radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer. Radon gas is inert, colorless and odorless. Radon is naturally in the atmosphere in trace amounts. Most radon exposure occurs inside homes, schools and workplaces. Radon gas becomes trapped indoors after it enters buildings through cracks and other holes in the foundation.
According to EPA,’ Breathing radon over time increases your risk of lung cancer. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Nationally, the EPA estimates that about 21,000 people die each year from radon-related lung cancer.

New Home Pre-Concealment Inspection

This will be the last time you see inside the walls of your new home. Our pre-drywall inspection takes place prior to the installation of the wallboard/drywall.

Infrared Inspection

Thermal imaging detects differences in the surface temperatures of a material and we use thermal imaging during our inspections to assist in detecting temperature differentials.

The differences in temperature are a clue to the inspector that further investigation is warranted by a qualified professional to check for an outlier such as a water leak, electrical issues or missing insulation in that area.

Our inspectors are professionally trained to use and interpret the reading that thermal images indicate. Defects that are not visible to human eye can be detected and confirmed with infrared thermal scan.

Rental Property Inspections

If you don’t care about the property, why should they?

Routine rental property inspections can help prevent big problems down the road. A rental property inspection allows for you and your tenant to review the condition of the property before the tenant moves in, and sets the expectation of the condition in which it should be returned. 

We furnish a detailed report documenting the issues with photographs, and evaluates physical condition and make recommendations.
