Radon is a radioactive gas. It comes from the natural decay of uranium that is found in nearly all soils. It typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Your home traps radon inside, where it can build up. Any home may have a radon problem. This means new and old homes, well- sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements. We are certified using one of the most accurate testing procedures available. Ask us about testing your new home before you move in.
WOOD BORING PEST INSPECTIONS
Pest inspections are conducted by individuals licensed to perform inspections of building structures to determine damage or possibility of damage from insects, bugs, termites or dry rot conditions.It’s generally a good idea to hire a professional pest inspector because most people cannot tell the difference between mounds of dirt generated by earthworms in the soil or a swarm of termites leaving behind scraps from chewing wood. The piles are very similar to the untrained eye. However, most homeowners would never notice a pest invasion until it escalates to unruly proportions.
RESIDENTIAL SEPTIC DYE TESTING

Molds are part of the natural environment. Outdoors, molds play a part in nature by breaking down dead organic matter such as fallen leaves and dead trees, but indoors, mold growth should be avoided. Molds reproduce by means of tiny spores; the spores are invisible to the naked eye and float through outdoor and indoor air. Mold may begin growing indoors when mold spores land on surfaces that are wet. There are many types of mold, and none of them will grow without water or moisture.
