Further Testing

Radon Gas Test

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) and the Surgeon General’s Office have estimated that as many as 20,000 lung cancer deaths are caused each year by radon. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. We test for radon gas over the course of three to four days with our testing equipment.Radon testing is $80. Results are sent in three days

Air Quality Test

This test determines if there are mold spores present in the air. We test several locations within the home and send the cartridges to a professional lab to get tested for mold spores and allergens.Air quality testing ranges from $150 to $250 depending on square footage and takes up to 5 days for results.

Water Quality Test

In the water quality test, we test the tap water for hardness, iron, lead, copper, pH, nitrates, nitrites. If the water source is a well, we can also test for bacteria.Water testing ranges between $80-$120. Results are same-day.

Thermal Scan

A thorough thermal scan will help to detect missing insulation in attics and in exterior walls, moisture issues such as below windows and water drainpipes, and helps to determine if windows and doors are sealing properly.Thermal scanning ranges from $50-$100 depending upon the square footage of the home. Results are same-day
