Learn About the Environmental Health Hazards in Your Home
- Whether you are a homeowner or a potential buyer who may soon become one, the best home is one which provides a safe, healthy environment for you and your family. In the past many homes, and even whole communities, across the nation were routinely built without an awareness of many potential environmental health hazards. However in recent years many contaminants have been clearly identified as presenting known health risks. Among these are asbestos, high levels of radon gas, mold, mildew, lead, pests, and various minerals and substances affecting water quality and air quality. At Columbus Advanced Inspections, we take all aspects of home inspection seriously and the issues of testing related to health concerns are always the top priority.
Accurate and reliable testing together with current and professional interpretation – that’s your best answer when it comes to environmental health hazards.
There is an added value in a home which is free from house contaminants. Some of it is intangible - it just feels safe and secure to live in. But if a problem exists, you need to know the size and nature of the problem. Can it be fixed? How much will it cost? Are these costs and consequences manageable? And if you are buying or selling a house, are they deal-breakers?
It is our business to stay current on the best and most important information regarding these issues and to provide our clients with accurate and reliable tests performed in accordance with local guidelines and laws. If problems are found, we provide you with accurate information and effective interpretation so you can reach your best decisions regarding sound and cost effective remedies for most environmental health hazard concerns.
