What Home Inspections Do You Need?

Our full home inspections are pretty thorough. However, certain inspections fall outside of a normal home inspection. These inspections will give you an even more comprehensive overview of your home’s condition.

Mold Testing

Mold can have a big impact on indoor air quality. If a large amount of mold is growing inside your home, it should be removed due to potential health problems it causes. Mold can be expensive to remediate. The last thing that you want to discover is that you have a mold problem when you are moving into your new home. This is why we recommend mold testing for all home buyers.

Mold testing is a good idea for both sellers, as well. The presence of mold can be a deal-breaker. As a seller, mold testing, it can help you identify and remove the mold before putting your home on the market. This can help keep buyers from bailing on your deal.

Our home inspectors have specialized training when it comes to conducting mold testing. We are certified by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors and the International Association of Certified Indoor Air Consultants to do mold testing in Bend, Oregon. We conduct a thorough visual inspection for mold and use specialized equipment to identify moisture conditions that encourage mold growth.

Radon Testing

Radon is invisible, silent, and has no scent. This radioactive gas occurs naturally in the environment. It is a byproduct of decaying uranium. Radon seeps into homes through cracks in the foundation and the basement. Once it enters your home, the gas slowly builds up. This gas is surprisingly common in many homes. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, radon has been found in homes in every single state in the U.S.

So, what is the problem with having elevated levels of radon in your home? This radioactive gas is a silent killer that causes cancer. It is responsible for more than 20,000 lung cancer deaths a year. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Fortunately, there is an easy solution to tell if there is an elevated level of radon in your home — radon testing. The EPA recommends that all home buyers have radon testing conducted before buying a home. The agency also encourages current homeowners to have radon testing done, as well.

Nonprofit Home Inspections is certified to conduct radon testing and mold testing by the International Association of Certified Indoor Air Consultants. In addition to our professional testing for real estate transactions, we also provide FREE diy radon testing kits to households that qualify.
