Types of Inspections
Our job as your professional home inspector is to alert you, to the extent possible, to unknown problems and potential environmental hazards in your current or potential house. Ours is a non-invasive visual inspection of your property which can alert you to possible problems.
We are licensed by the State of New Jersey, to perform tests for these hazards:
- * Radon: Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas found in soils, rock, and water throughout the U.S. Radon is a threat to health because it tends to collect in homes, sometimes to very high concentrations. See Radon FAQ.
- * Termites or other wood-destroying organisms: These pests cause serious damage to wooden structures and posts and can also attack stored food, household furniture, and books. See Termite Facts.
In both new and older properties, the best way to ensure that you are well informed about their strengths and weaknesses is to have us give you a professional inspection. We are trained to identify problem areas both small and large that may have been overlooked by the previous owners and to identify which require immediate attention. See our Inspection Overview for more details.
Whether you are selling your property on your own or using a Realtor, it’s always a prudent idea to have a professional home inspection. Knowledge is power. All properties have strengths and weaknesses: we help you answer how serious the problems are, which must be immediately addressed and which can wait. The more you know about your home, the more prepared you will be for negotiation. See our Inspection Overview for more details.
We sample on request for these hazards:
- * Asbestos: Asbestos material that crumbles easily if sawed, scraped, or sanded into a powder is more likely to create a health hazard because it can be inhaled into the lungs, increasing the risk of disease. See Asbestos FAQ.
- * Mold: There are many types of mold, and none of them will grow without water or moisture. Molds can produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances. See Mold FAQ.
- * Indoor Air Quality: While mold colonies and the spores they produce can cause allergic reactions, things such as pet dander, VOC’s (volatile organic compounds), dust, and other allergens can affect the air we breathe. Using air sampling techniques to IESO standards (www.iestandards.org ), we can sample for these and others issues .
