Radon is a tasteless and odorless gas that is released when uranium decays. This radioactive gas is found normally in the soil. The problem with radon is that it can enter buildings and homes through basements, gaps in walls and floors and cracks in concrete. Long-term exposure to radon is associated with lung cancer. In fact, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), radon is one of the leading causes of lung cancer in the U.S.
Radon exposure is more common than you might think. It can occur in any home, whether old or new. The chances of a home having high levels of radon in the U.S. is approximately 1 out of 15, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Since radon is colorless, odorless and tasteless, it is virtually undetectable without testing. We are certified by the International Association of Certified Indoor of Air Consultants to perform radon testing in Oregon. In addition to providing professional radon testing for real estate transactions, we also offer FREE radon tests for low income Battle Ground, Washington residents who qualify.
Oil Tank Sweeps
Could you have a buried oil tank on your property and not know it? A buried oil tank can cause a variety of problems, such as leaks. You might never know that you have an oil tank buried on your property. Leaks often go undetected, contaminating groundwater and soil for years.
If you purchase a property that has an oil tank that leaks down the road, you could be responsible for remediation of the site, which could be quite costly. You can avoid this headache by having an oil tank sweep. This service will help you determine if there is a buried oil tank somewhere on your property.
Mold is a serious problem. It can grow quickly on hidden areas within your home and cause lots of damage, as well as pose a health risk to occupants. Mold can grow on many surfaces, including wallpaper, dust, and paint. Although you might smell mold if it is present, it could be hard to determine where it is coming from or how big the problem is without a mold inspection.
At Nonprofit Home Inspections, we are certified to conduct mold testing by the International Association of Certified Indoor Air Consultants. If you are a Battle Ground, Washington resident or future homeowner, contact us today for mold testing.

Battle Ground is named for a battle that never actually occurred. In 1855, Chief Umtuch and a group of the Klickitat tribe attempted to leave the fort in the area. Fearing that they may be headed to join the Yakima tribe uprising that was occurring at the time, Captain William Strong followed and confronted the group near present-day Battle Ground. Eventually, Captain Strong convinced them peacefully to return to the fort, however Chief Umtuch was killed during the talks. While the circumstances of his death are unknown, it is thought that a gun was accidentally fired by one of his men. There is a school named in his honor in the Battle Ground school district.
