Wood Destroying Insect Inspection

A visual inspection of accessible areas for active or evidence of past infestation of wood destroying insects to include termites, carpenter ants and carpenter bees by a State of Ohio Licensed Inspector. An NCPM-33 inspection report is issued with the findings of the report.

Radon Testing

Testing is performed using EPA protocol for home sellers and buyers. A radon monitor is placed in the home for a 48 hour minimum testing period by a State of Ohio Licensed Radon Tester. A report is issued with the radon levels and an EPA Overall Radon Average for the sampling period.

Mold Sampling

This is an initial step to determining if a home has a mold problem. Air or surfaces samples will be collected and sent to a laboratory for analysis. Laboratory results are available in approximately 3 business days. If the report analysis reveals elevated mold readings the next step is consultation with a Certified Industrial Hygienist for remediation.

Well Water Flow and Potability Testing

A well water flow test determines water flow and pressure from the well by attaching gauges to a water faucet and monitoring flow (gallons per minute) and pressure for a minimum of twenty minutes. Some fluctuation in flow and pressure is normal, but a well should be able to deliver an average flow of at least 2.5 gallons per minute for twenty minutes.

Potability testing is a checking for the presence of the most common bacteria found in private water sources (Coliform, E-coli, & Fecal coliform). A water sample from the subject property is delivered to EPA approved lab for analysis. Results are generally available from lab in 24 to 48 hours and are forwarded to client immediately upon receipt.

Warranty Inspections

As the first year anniversary of a new home approaches, most homebuilder warranties are about to expire.

In the excitement of moving into a new home it’s easy to forget about the warranty most builders put on new homes. Typically these warranties expire after one year, and the builder will no longer be responsible for any defects. This may be the last opportunity to have the builder repair any of these defective conditions.

Experienced and professional Pillar To Post inspectors will do a thorough inspection of your home and leave you with a detailed report to address any warranty related concerns you may want to bring to your builders attention.
