Optional Cottage Grove, OR Home Inspection Services

Besides full home inspections, we offer a variety of other home inspections. Here are some of our additional services.

Radon Testing

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 Associsation 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 Cottage Grove OR 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. Beginning in May 2019, Nonprofit Home Inspections will begin offering oil tank sweeps.

Mold Testing

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 Cottage Grove, Oregon resident or future homeowner, contact us today for mold testing.
