Radon is a cancer-causing natural radioactive gas that you can’t see, smell, or taste. Its presence in your home can pose a danger to your family’s health. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and the second leading cause of lung cancer in America. The U.S. Surgeon General and EPA recommend that all homes be tested for the presence of radon. Thorough Inspections, LLC is a qualified radon testing service, having completed the Radon Measurement Operator Proficiency course. We use measuring devices that are placed in the lowest level of the residence for a period of 48 hours, with the results available at the end of the test.
There are many areas in every home where mold growth can be hiding. A professional mold inspection can help you identify those areas where mold is actively growing in your home. Mold inspections will often reveal multiple areas of mold contamination which effectively have a cumulative effect equal to that of a very large area.
Mold and moisture inspections are always recommended even when mold contamination is not present in a building. These inspections are performed for individuals suffering from health problems believed to be related to poor indoor air quality, as well as, during real estate transactions, and litigation between buyers/sellers, tenants/landlords, or claimants and insurance companies. Because indoor mold is a direct cause of so many health problems, a mold inspection is a wise investment for everyone, not just those who are already suffering symptoms.
Lead-Based Paint Testing
Due to the health hazards of lead poisoning, the government banned the use of lead-based paint in 1978. Although some lead-based paint was used in 80% of pre-1978 housing, its mere presence does not constitute a health hazard. Properly maintained and managed, lead-based paint poses a little health risk to most people. However, one of the first things many people do when moving into a new house is to start sanding, painting, remodeling, etc. This easily generates lead-based paint chips that can be picked up and ingested by small children or LBP dust that can be breathed by pregnant women and small children.
The three most accurate and non-evasive methods of testing are: (1) can confirm if there is chipping peeling paint which gives lead access to power and come to the surface (2) a soil and paint chip analysis that will usually examine and take samples of 5-6 areas of the home likely to contain lead-based paint; (3) the third way is by means of an XRF machine (x-ray fluorescence machine) that takes x-rays of the walls in the house.
