home INSPECTION SERVICES
mold testing service
Mold inspections is my specialty. I will help you investigate for any signs of past or present water damage that can promote the growth of mold. I take samples of any suspected mold to a laboratory for detailed analysis. If left unchecked mold that are indoors can damage the structure of your home. Mold is also extremely dangerous for your health.
Pre-listing home inspection
It is essential to do a pre-listing home inspection before listing your home sale in Burlington, Oakville, Hamilton, Mississauga, Milton or Waterdown. I will inspect your home and make you aware of any defects or issues with your home so that you can make any and all repairs before prospective buyers discover them.
With a preliminary home inspection you can take much needed time to obtain estimates for repairs. Give yourself and your potential buyers peace of mind, by showing them that you care about the health of your home. Be in a position where prospers bid on your home increasing the value of the sale instead of negotiating price based on minor repairs.
Infrared scan (ir) thermal imaging services
I perform a thorough Infrared Scan (IR) thermal imaging services with every home inspection I carried out. To help find issues that are not visible to the naked eye. My Infrared camera detect and translates the heat signatures of objects into colors on a gradient scale, with higher temperatures appearing as lighter colors, and lower temperatures and wet areas appearing darker.
I analyse the images to find sources of energy loss, locate areas of possible moisture, or find any issues with the electrical system. I am even able to spot wood-damaging pest and rodent infestations.
Most importantly Infrared Scans allows me to find flue leaks, which in some cases can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.
indoor air quality testing
Air quality if mostly done for the health of the humans living in the home. I tests for other chemicals or mold. This is because there are better ways to improve indoor air quality. If you think your indoor air quality is poor, you should first look for possible causes.
These includes; water leaks that could be causing mold to grow, broken or improperly vented combustion appliances, such as your furnace or stove.
There are a number of products that can release chemicals into the air, such as; glues, paints, varnishes, wood-plastic composites (wood products combined with plastic and chemicals) If the problem is simple enough, you may be able to fix it at the source. Getting a home inspector to look into the air quality of your home could save your life.
