Inspection Add-On Services

Radon Test $99

Radon is a harmful radioactive and naturally occurring gas found in over 7% of American homes. Radon levels are measured by picoCuries per liter of air (pCi/L) and interpreted Radon Test results are classified into three levels of action. A certified inspector can perform a radon test and determine which scenario is most appropriate for you.

  • Scenario I: “No Action” – A radon level less than 4 pCi/L should be viewed as acceptable, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
  • Scenario II: “Slightly Elevated” – A radon level above 4 pCi/L and less than 10 pCi/L is considered a concern but not significant enough to merit installing a mitigation system without first conducting a longer-term test.
  • Scenario III: “Elevated” – A level above 10 pCi/L is high and a Radon mitigation system should be installed by a qualified professional.

Methamphetamine Test $149

With a rise in the creation and distribution of meth in homes and commercial properties, many people may wish to test a home and or property for any chemical compounds or residue that are created during the process. Standard testing protocol for four separate swabs to be taken from the property. Common swab locations:

  1. Bottom of the furnace cabinet or inside the furnace cabinet door.
  2. Side wall of the master bathroom vanity.
  3. Wall directly above the kitchen oven/range.
  4. Exterior surface of garage entry door.

The state of Utah recognizes levels below 1.0 micrograms of meth per 100 cm of surface area to be safe and not meriting decontamination. Homes that are deemed to have levels over 1.0 micrograms of meth per 100 cm of the surface area should be retested by a state-certified decontamination specialist.

Mold Test $299

Testing for mold in your air should be done when a visual examination of the property yields the following:

  • Evidence of water damage.
  • Visible signs of dampness.
  • Musty smells or odors.
  • Obvious mold growth.

Mold tests can be performed at time of your inspection to assess that the property either does or does not have a cause for concern. The test would be paired with a sound visual inspection which uncovers signs of mold presence or conditions conducive to mold presence.

Sewer Scope $199

Sewer scopes involve a video inspection of the main sewer line from the foundation to the municipality’s sewer tap or septic tank. The purpose is to identify visible defects such as the following:

  • Blockage or restriction.
  • Standing water over 1 inch.
  • Plant or tree root intrusion.
  • Crushed or damaged pipe.

Service can reveal potential blockages and other related problems which could cause the sewer to backup or lead to expensive sewer line repairs.
