Inspection Add-On Services
Radon Test $99
Radon is a harmful radioactive and naturally occurring gas 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 two scenarios.
Scenario I – Radon level less than four pCi/L, which is considered to be safe.
Scenario II – Radon level above four pCi/L, which is considered to be unsafe.
The Environment Protection Agency has established levels of Radon below four pCi/L to be considered not elevated, whereas levels above four pCi/L are deemed elevated and merit a mitigation system.
Methamphetamine Test $179
With a rise in the use of methamphetamine, many people wish to test for the presence of methamphetamine residue in the home they are considering purchasing. A typical test involves collection of surface samples from the following areas:
Swab 1 – Heating, ventilation, and cooling ductwork.
Swab 2 – Main bathroom wall surface above vanity.
Swab 3 – Kitchen wall surface above oven/range.
Your test samples are then sent to a nationally certified laboratory equipped with state-of-the-art testing and analytical services.
Mold Test $279
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 during your inspection to assess whether 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 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

- Crushed or damaged pipe
Service can reveal potential blockages and other related problems that could cause the sewer to back up or lead to expensive sewer line repairs.
