- Radon Testing – Radon is an invisible and odorless radioactive gas that the EPA has identified as a risk factor for developing lung cancer. Radon comes from the radioactive decay of uranium and radium deposits in soil, rocks, and water. It enters into homes through cracks in walls, basements, and foundations. Our team uses state-of-the-art electronic monitors to produce a chart with the radon levels for the duration of the test.
- Water Quality Testing – Water quality testing is recommended for homes with private or shared wells, and is often relied on to check for lead leaking out of plumbing in older homes that use city water.
- Well Certification – A water well inspection is needed to certify that the well and equipment are in good working condition and can deliver the water needed to sustain a home. An inspection is always in the potential buyer’s favor because it’s costly to re-drill a well or replace the pump and equipment.
