FULL HOME INSPECTION:
A home is probably the biggest purchase you’ll ever make, so it’s important to understand the condition of your investment. I’ll provide a non-invasive evaluation of the home’s accessible structure, systems and components. While a home inspection can’t reveal every concern that exists, it will significantly reduce your anxiety by arming you with the knowledge you need to make an informed home-buying decision.
AIR QUALITY INSPECTION:
Are you concerned about the air quality in your home? It can be compromised by high indoor humidity, pet dander, various airborne allergens, and even more serious problems, such as radon and mold. Let me conduct an indoor Air Quality Test and make recommendations based on my findings that will guard your family’s health and your home’s safety.
Although radon is a naturally occurring gas in our environment, it's also the second leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the U.S., according to the Surgeon General. One out of 15 homes is estimated to have dangerously elevated radon levels. The Surgeon General and the Environmental Protection Agency recommend testing all houses. Millions of Americans have had their homes tested for radon, and you should, too.
Unchecked mold indoors can damage the structure of a home, cause wood rot, and ruin drywall. Most importantly, mold can cause health problems. A professional mold test starts with a thorough inspection of your property. I will investigate any signs of past or present water intrusion, which can promote mold growth, and I’ll take samples of any suspected mold for laboratory analysis.
WOOD DESTROYING INSECT TERMITE INSPECTION:
Wood-destroying insects can cause serious damage to the wooden structural components of a house. They can hide and go undetected for a long time, but there are many telltale signs for different species that indicate their presence. I’ll inspect your home for evidence of infestation now before it becomes an expensive problem later.
SEPTIC DYE TEST INSPECTION:
Let me test your potable water supply, especially if your property has a private well, cistern, or septic system. I will check it for coliform and other harmful bacteria, which can endanger your family’s health. If excess water is observed at your septic system’s drainage area, I will conduct a dye test for functional flow and to help determine whether your system is overloaded. If it is, I can advise you on some further steps to take to remedy the problem.
WELL WATER TEST INSPECTION:
Let me test your potable water supply, especially if your property has a private well, cistern or septic system. I will check it for coliform and other harmful bacteria, which can endanger your family’s health.
Pre-Listing / Pre Listing / Seller Inspection / Move-In Certified Inspection / Move In Certification:
Are you selling your home? Let me inspect it before you even list it. A Move-In Certified® Seller’s Inspection alerts you to any defects or problems with your home so that you can address them before prospective buyers discover them.

Home Maintenance Book Is Included
With every full home inspection service, I include a home maintenance book for my clients. The book explains how a home works, how to maintain it, and how to save home energy. It also includes seasonal maintenance checklists.
