This home inspection package goes beyond the most comprehensive inspection possible, giving you the knowledge and ability to make the right choice for one of the biggest decisions of your life.

This includes all checklist items from an Extended Home inspection plus air quality testing to check for abnormal indoor mold growth and radon gas screening. Mold overgrowth can trigger respiratory ailments, sensitivities and allergies. The home inspector will go through your house and take indoor air quality samples. Standalone mold testing is also available.

A short term Radon screening test is also part of the Premium home inspection package. Radon in high concentrations can be harmful to your health. Radon is found in every home – the question is how much? Getting a short-term radon test is a quick way to screen a home for radon – the test will highlight whether further investigation or mitigation is required.

Thermal Imaging

Despite what you might have seen on television or in movies, thermographic imaging cameras can’t see behind walls. Instead, they detect temperature variations related to heat and moisture along building surfaces.

Despite what you might have seen on television or in movies, thermographic imaging cameras can’t see behind walls. Instead, they detect temperature variations related to heat and moisture along building surfaces.

Thermography differences in surface temperature can detect faults in various building systems, like the insulation of a home, the plumbing system or the electrical system.

The thermal imaging camera detect temperature differences and patterns on a wall, a wet area and the surrounding dry areas can indicate the presence of moisture that would not be visible during a home inspection without a thermal imaging camera. Findings like these could be an indication of previous water issues or a slow leak that should be further investigated.

Mold Inspection

Mold spores exist everywhere we live. While there will always be a certain amount of mold spores in any normal living environment, it’s when certain mold spores reach elevated or excessive levels that they can become problematic for you and your family. In most cases this also happens in conjunction with water infiltration issues. This is why our home inspectors use thermal imaging to detect hidden moisture problems.
