While this is not required for home inspectors, we believe it is important to conduct home inspections safely so that our clients, the home’s occupants, real estate agents and the inspectors themselves are not exposed to significant hazards in the home. Extra precautions our inspectors take include using personal protective equipment including hazmat suits and respirators, laying down drop cloths when accessing the attic and crawlspace and exercising caution around items suspected of containing asbestos or other hazards.

Reggie Anderson is a member in good standing of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI). Membership to InterNACHI confers a number of benefits to home inspectors including rigorous continuing education classes to help keep home inspectors abreast of new developments. InterNACHI also allows home inspectors to seek peer review feedback concerning rare defects that can sometimes be found in the home. Nonprofit Home Inspections’ home inspectors are all members of InterNACHI so that we can continually improve our efforts to help families and individuals find and maintain their own healthy homes.

radon testing vancouver waReggie Anderson is certified to conduct radon testing and mold testing by the International Association of Certified Indoor Air Consultants (IAC2). This additional training and certification allows Reggie to give reliable, unbiased testing results for clients in both Oregon and Washington. Because radon is the number one cause of lung cancer for nonsmokers, the EPA recommends testing every home for radon at least once every two years. Our region has an unusually high occurrence of radon with one out of four homes exceeding EPA guidelines. Mold is a similarly worrisome air quality concern based on our climate. Having an unbiased, certified inspector such as Reggie Anderson conduct your testing for radon and / or mold is an important first step in helping to protect the health of your family.
