Radon Testing. Mold Testing. Termite Inspection. And More!

Additional Home Inspection Services

A traditional home inspection doesn’t include inspection of several other aspects, like termite inspection or radon testing. It isn’t a bad idea to request a home inspection for additional services since you never know what’s in the air or the water. This can also be very helpful if the property has been vacant for some time.

We believe that as a potential property owner, you have the right to expect the best standards of fairness, accuracy, and thoroughness from your home inspector. Our Kalamazoo home inspectors ensure they deliver.  All our inspection reports are accurately completed and will stand up to extensive examination.

Even with additional home inspection services, we perform in-depth, complete visual examinations of operating components of the property. A trained inspector will examine your home, and you are urged to follow the person for a step-by-step analysis. A proper home inspection will tell you what you’re getting yourself into.

Radon mitigation, electrical upgrades, and structure repairs because of termites can cost you hundreds of dollars. Experienced real estate agents also encourage home inspections, understanding the importance of going into a real estate transaction with both eyes wide open.

Radon Testing

Radon is a radioactive, cancer-causing gas that you can’t smell, taste, or see radon gas. It’s dangerous, and it could be a problem in your potential home.

Radon is produced from the radioactive, natural breaking of uranium in rock, water, and soil, getting into the air. Radon is in every area in America. It can get into any building, like houses, schools, offices, resulting in high indoor radon levels.

Any Home Can Have a Radon Problem. This includes old and new homes, drafty and well-sealed homes, and homes without or with basements.

Radon gets in via:
Cracks in solid floors
Cracks in walls
Water supply
Construction joints
Gaps around service pipes
Gaps in suspended floors
Cavities inside walls

Why should you test for radon? Testing is the best way to find out if you and those important to you are in danger from radon. Government agencies recommend testing below the third floor in all homes for radon.

Testing is easy, affordable, and only takes a few minutes of your time. Thousands of people in the US have already tested their homes for radon.

 

Mold, Termite, & More!

Professional Mold Testing in Kalamazoo, MI

Often your home can be your biggest health threat. Professional mold testing can be the beginning of preventative care for your house. Molds create irritants and allergens. In some cases, mold can create possible toxic substances.

Touching or inhaling mold or mold spores can trigger an allergic reaction, such as:

  • Asthma attacks
  • Irritation of the skin, eyes, lungs, nose, and throat
  • Haver-fever-type symptoms
  • Runny noses
  • Sneezing
  • Red eyes
  • Rash

Long-term exposure to mold can be hazardous to your entire family. A mold testing is a way to get your house clear of molds. The price of mold testing varies according to property size, the extent of the mold inspection, the number of mold samples, and several other factors. A mold testing done by us includes inspecting your house or business from top-to-bottom to detect dangerous mold infestations.

Kalamazoo, MI Termite Inspection Service

Termites cause over three billion dollars in damage every year that is not covered by homeowner’s insurance. Termites live in the ground and feed on wood products and moisture in the soil. Termites are continually foraging 24 hours a day. Regardless where you live, your property is a bull’s eye for termites.

Termites attack the structure of your property from inside the wood. You may not realize you have termites until your structure gives way. A group can be made up of hundreds of termites that will live up to 20 years.

There are 30 to 50 termite colonies per acre on average. Termites plague buildings and destroy wood panels, lumber, flooring, wallpaper, sheetrock, fabric, and plastics paper products. The most severe damage is the loss of the solidness of your property’s structure. Termites could destroy a home within two years.

A termite inspection is a critical tool in your pest control strategy. Usually, you should get a termite inspection as part of a yearly insect damage inspection. If your home is remarkably at risk because of such factors as being near tree stumps or excessive moisture, you should think about having us perform a termite inspection to avoid costly damage.

There is no substitute for a termite inspection done by a professional home inspection company. Our expert technicians possess the knowledge, experience, and tools to realize the signs of termite activity. They can decide which treatment is right for you and your property. We can shield your property from termites, but only if you act and schedule an appointment for a termite inspection. Our termite inspection service is affordable, so there’s no excuse.

Effective Water Quality Testing in Kalamazoo

When it comes to the quality of your water, you shouldn’t take any chances. Each time you drink a glass of tap water, take a bath or brush your teeth, you’re exposing your body to whatever may be in your water supply. If you want to know about the water quality in your current or potential home, take action and arrange a water quality test with us.

The significance of safe water in your property is vital to everything and everyone. The wellbeing of all, from your pets to your shrubs, is why we believe in testing the quality of your water before you close on a property.

If an issue is found with the quality of your water, you have ample time to remedy the problem before you move in. Don’t wait until you are already in your home or business to find out the water is tainted.

Unlike other Kalamazoo, MI home inspection companies that perform free or low-cost water quality testing, we use EPA approved techniques. We never try to sell you any other products or services, unless we feel it’s necessary for ensuring you get a healthy, safe property.
