Water supplied by a private source is also usually safe to drink; however, it can be contaminated by harmful bacteria resulting from faulty septic tanks, chemicals from a toxic spill that occurred years before, leaking underground storage tanks, or pesticides and fertilizers. The only way to tell whether the water is safe is to have it tested. We can do several water tests from bacteria in water, FHA water tests and fracking water tests.
A maintenance inspection will help to prioritize a home improvement list, and to hopefully find out about small problems before they turn into big ones. In some cases, a maintenance inspection will reveal that what was thought to be a small problem has already turned into a big one.
Radon is a radioactive gas. It is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and chemically inert. Unless you test for it, there is no way of telling how much is present. Radon is formed by the natural radioactive decay of uranium in rock, soil, and water. Naturally existing, low levels of uranium occur widely in Earth’s crust. It can be found in all 50 states. Once produced, radon moves through the ground to the air above. Some remains below the surface and dissolves in water that collects and flows under the ground’s surface.

Wood Destroying Insects (WDI) Inspections
A Wood destroying insect inspection, also known as a termite inspection, is a visual inspection of a property to determine if there is any evidence of infestation by wood-destroying insects such as termites, carpenter ants, and powder post beetles. The inspection includes a detailed examination of the exterior and interior portions of a property, including crawl spaces, basements, attics, and other areas where insects may be present. The inspector looks for signs of damage, such as piles of sawdust or mud tubes, and evaluates the structural integrity of the property.
