When you walk into a home—whether it be your own home or a home you’re interested in buying—you might think that everything looks fine on the surface. However, the truth is that there’s no way to be 100 percent sure a home is safe and sound unless you have a home inspection performed. Mountaineer Inspection Services can provide you with residential home inspection services in West Virginia and let you know whether a home is as safe as it appears.
Mold is present in the outdoors and in every home as well. It can only grow if the right conditions exist. It needs the right temperature, enough moisture (humidity), and a food source for it to become a potential health threat. Potential health effects and symptoms associated with mold exposure include allergic reaction, asthma, and other respiratory complaints.Mountaineer Inspection Services offers mold inspection, testing, and assessment. When we conduct mold testing, we can tell you if you have elevated levels of mold by using air samples, tapes, swabs, and other tools during our analysis.Call us today to schedule an inspection of your property.
In addition, we also provide home infrared thermal imaging. This type of testing relies on thermal imaging to find water leaks around windows and doors, leaky roofs, insufficient insulation, plumbing problems, and more. There could be a serious issue in a home hiding right behind a wall or in a ceiling, and you wouldn’t even know it by looking. There’s also a chance that a home might not be as energy efficient as it could be. Infrared thermal imaging will help identify potential problems by relying on inspectors that have been certified by the Building Performance Institute (BPI) and the Residential Energy Services Network (ResNet).
Another service we provide is radon testing. According to the U.S. Surgeon General, radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the entire country. Yet, many homeowners have never tested their houses for it. Radon can build up in a home when uranium in the soil underneath of the house breaks down and enters through a basement or crawlspace. It can have serious long-term effects on your health and the health of your family. So, why not have Mountaineer Inspection Services test for it?
