When purchasing a home, the buyer wants the full inspection picture. Regular house inspectors are not trained to fully evaluate potential environmental hazards. Environmental Inspection Services gives you a clear impression of the problems and quantifies exactly what it will take to fix them.

Enviroscreen:

A rapid screening of the property, designed to provide a brief overview –checks for four common environmental problems in older homes: asbestos, lead paint, moisture/mold problems, and indoor air quality.

Moisture:

Environmental Inspection Services checks for the causes of moisture intrusion and determine whether moisture is a past or ongoing problem. If it’s ongoing, we’ll tell you how to eliminate it.

Mold/Fungal Growth:

Environmental Inspection Services inspects for the mold/fungi caused by this moisture. It’s important to investigate the extent and severity of the infestation to determine whether it needs professional cleanup.

Asbestos:

Asbestos was used in over two thousand building products up to the early 1980s and it is still even used today. For a pre-purchase inspection, Environmental Inspection Services checks to see if there’s a problem with ceiling texture, furnace duct insulation or vinyl flooring.

Lead-based paint:

Lead-based paint was commonly used until 1976. Exposure to lead can cause significant health problems, especially in children or pregnant women. Environmental Inspection Services will determine whether further inspection and/or testing is needed.

Radon:

On-site testing is often requested by home buyers. Our radon devices stay in place for 48 to 72 hours, after which the results are immediately available.
