Replacing a sewer line can cost $20,000 or more. Before you complete your real estate transaction, getting a sewer scope in Beaverton, Oregon by a licensed home inspector is a great idea. Using specialized equipment, our Beaverton, OR home inspectors can help you identify whether or not your home’s sewer line is operating as intended. We frequently find defects in sewer lines that the current owners don’t even know about.

If you are looking at purchasing an older home with forced air heating, there is a chance that there may be an underground fuel oil tank on the property. Because all underground heating oil tanks will leak at some point, you should request an oil tank sweep by a licensed home inspector to help determine if an abandoned heating oil tank is located on the property. Leaking underground fuel oil tanks can result in thousands of dollars worth of fines and remediation costs. It is much better to find out if the property you are purchasing has an underground oil tank before the end of your inspection period so that you can make an informed buying decision. Soil samples will also let you know if the tank was leaking at the time of the inspection.
Molds are a type of fungus present in all indoor spaces. Mold spores do not go away. They are capable of surviving in harsh conditions. When mold spores are exposed to moisture and dampness, they can grow quite rapidly. Mold spores are capable of growing on many different surfaces from wood to fabric.
Mold is common in homes that have leaking pipes and other moisture problems. According to the World Health Organization, mold is highly present in many indoor environments throughout the world. Mold is a serious problem when it grows indoors. It can cause serious health effects for people who are sensitive to it. Some people are allergic to mold, which can lead to asthma and other breathing issues. It can even lead to scarring on the lungs. Because of these issues, both the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that homeowners deal with mold immediately. The problem is that you might not be aware that mold is in your home until you see or smell it. By that time, the problem can be quite significant.
At Nonprofit Home Inspections, we offer thorough mold testing. We carefully analyze the crevices and corners of your home for moisture and signs of mold and conditions conducive to mold growth.
