Mold can affect anyone, but poses a higher risk for the following people:
- Young Children
- Elderly People
- Pregnant Mothers
- Persons with asthma or breathing problems
- Persons with lower immune systems
- Persons undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatments
A mold inspection looks for evidence of past or current mold growth within the home, inside the homes walls, and other areas where mold growth is undesirable. Moisture is key when is comes to mold. With the use of infrared thermal imaging and a moisture meter I can determine areas in your home where moisture exists and asses the extent of those moisture levels.
Radon gas is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that comes from the decay of uranium in the soil. Utah’s uranium and Radon levels are 5 times greater than the average level in the United States. A higher concentration of Radon in your home is dangerous to your family’s health. In fact, per the EPA radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, causing 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year. Only smoking causes more lung cancer.
Any potential home buyer should consider having a radon test performed prior to signing the final purchase agreement.
Whether new or old, small or large, drafty or not; 1 in 3 homes in Utah have Radon levels considered unhealthy by the EPA. Radon enters a home through foundation cracks and cold joints, openings around plumbing pipes, and crawlspaces. Radon is both colorless and odorless, it can only be detected by testing with special equipment. Radon test kits can be set up quickly and only need to run for 2 days to get accurate results.

Is the roof leaking? Is the insulation spotty and/or missing? Is there moisture in the walls or floor? To a trained professional, a thermal imaging scan is absolutely key and a very necessary tool in helping to assess the condition of your home. This is why I use state of the art thermal imaging equipment and a thermal imaging scan comes standard with EVERY home inspection!
Termite and Wood Destroying Organisms Inspection
A wood destroying organism inspection is a visual inspection conducted in the readily accessible areas of structures indicated in the report including attics and crawl spaces. A written report will be provided on the home or property with visible and accessible evidence of an infestation or damage by wood destroying organisms. Usually this means subterranean or dry wood termites, but will also cover wood destroying beetles and wood destroying fungi.
