Testing ServicesShould I have Radon and Mold Testing as part of my home inspection? Some home inspectors don’t mention testing for radon or mold. While the future homeowner can only make that decision it might be best to know what you’re purchasing to avoid any unexpected costs in the future.
Radon is a radioactive element that is part of the radioactive decay chain of naturally occurring uranium in soil. You can’t see radon. You can’t smell radon and you can’t taste radon. Unlike carbon monoxide and many other home pollutants, radon's adverse health effect, lung cancer, is usually not produced immediately. Thus you may be exposed to radon for many years without ever suspecting its presence in your home.
Mold can be corrosive and damaging to drywall, cause wood to become brittle, and should be remediated when possible. To ensure any and all mold is detected we offer surface and air sample collections to be tested. We will share and explain the results as quickly as possible.
When it comes to for-sale properties in the city, home inspection prices vary widely. It depends on what kind of home is inspected, we’ve provided a list of our typical quotes but actual prices may vary.
