Having a home free of harmful contaminants and good air quality is vital for your health. A Healthy Home Inspection includes all checklist items from an Extended Home inspection plus Radon Testing, Air Quality Testing which includes Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Testing, Formaldehyde Testing and Air Sampling for Mold. When it comes to the air you breathe, don’t take short cuts. A Healthy Home Inspection which includes an Air Quality Assessment is the only way to help make sure your home is safe for you and your family.
Mould, Radon & Indoor Air Quality Tests
Most people worry about the air quality outdoors, but the air inside your home can be 2-5 times more polluted.
In some extreme cases, it can potentially be 100 times worse.
We are constantly exposed to pollution, toxins, pesticides and harmful gases. Most of the time, these toxins, pollutants, and gases get diluted into the atmosphere. But they can also find their way into our homes through tiny cracks in foundation walls and floors, through unfinished floors, windows, sumps, vents or gaps around pipes and drains. They can even come from products we use to build our homes or furniture and other materials we use. When pollutants get into our homes and can’t escape they begin to accumulate, and in high concentrations, they represent serious health risks.
Four common pollutants include VOC’s, Formaldehyde, Mold, and Radon.
Our Healthy Home Inspection includes a full house inspection, as well as a number of indoor air quality tests, and thermographic scan of the entire home.
