Much depends on the home inspector and which association, if any, to which the home inspector belongs. Our inspection provides a visual examination of more than 400 items in a home from the foundation to the roof. We thoroughly test all major components of the home. We mount the roof when accessible, enter the crawlspace when present, and attic when accessible. Our inspectors are trained to perform a professional inspection that meets the highest standards in the industry-the Standards of Practice established by the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI).

Radon:

This inspection includes the placement of electronic continuous monitoring devices to measure the ongoing level of radon in the habitable areas of the home. These devices will let us know actual house conditions several times every hour, and the average concentration over a 48 hour period. These measurements evaluate the level of radon to determine if any form of improvement is required. Learn more...

Carbon Monoxide:

This service determines if the combustible appliances in the home are releasing harmful levels of carbon monoxide. An electronic Carbon Monoxide detector will be used on older units to determine if gas appliances were contributing CO to the internal home environment at the time of inspection. Learn more...

It is very common to have the water tested by the home inspector. This inspection is a limited sampling of certain water systems and components using normal operating controls. The purpose of the Inspection is to provide you with information about the condition of quality of the water of the home at the time of the Inspection. The test will be performed in accordance with the Laboratory and/or manufacturers guidelines for the collection of water samples. The EPA document Drinking Water contaminants provides the basic information everyone should know about drinking water pollutants.

Septic systems are usually not part of a home inspection. Using current "Septic Loading" testing protocol, the septic system is subjected to above average water exposure. Dye tablets can also be used as another indicator. The system is evaluated for evidence of above ground septic breakout. Without a test, clear failure of the septic system is the only evidence of problems as most components are underground. The EPA document EPA Guide to Septic Systems provides the basic information everyone should know about drinking water pollutants.
