Every home should be tested for radon gas during the transfer of real estate, regardless of age and foundation type, and even if there is an existing radon mitigation system in place.
After all, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Aztec Home Inspections has conducted many radon gas tests where existing radon systems were not doing their job and needed repairs.
Crawlspaces, slabs on grade, basements, and new and old homes have returned a result higher than the EPA action level of 4.0 pCi/L.
The only way to know what the radon levels are is to conduct a radon test. You hire a home inspector to evaluate the HVAC system, why would you not evaluate an existing radon system? It’s your lungs. Order a radon test to protect your family’s health.
We have heard all the reasons not to test mold. “The EPA says mold testing is not necessary.” Not true at all. “Mold does not affect everyone.” Again, not true! The EPA states “most”, most is not the whole pie.
The American Industrial Hygiene Association, the CDC, Health Canada, and the Institute of Medicine of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences have all agreed that working or living in a building/home with mold damage increases your risk of respiratory disease. So why not test?
Clearly, the science is there to do so! Even though Virginia does not require mold inspectors to be educated, experienced or certified, Michael Donitzen of Aztec Home Inspections is a Certified Mold Inspector and Mold Remediator and has been conducting mold assessments since 2004. Order a mold test to keep your family healthy. Mold clean up is costly and mold damages the structure of your home. Don’t buy someone else’s problem!
Thermal imaging reveals hidden roof and plumbing leaks, water intrusion, and overheating electrical circuits and breakers. All of these items cannot be seen without the use of a thermal camera.
Roughly 51,000 house fires each year are caused by overheating electrical devices, and approximately 500 deaths are attributed to electrical fires. Hiring a home inspector who scans your electrical system with a thermal camera just makes sense.
