Pre-Purchase Inspections

While a standard building inspection is important, it may not always uncover issues that could pose significant risks like lead contamination in the water supply, hidden mold, or VOCs emitting toxic chemicals.

Our services go beyond a standard building inspection.

Do you know the story of your house?

The Hankins family didn't know they bought a "meth house" until their unborn baby tested positive for amphetamines.

They are not alone.

Right after moving into their Klamath Falls, Oregon home, the Ezra family started feeling sick. Jonathan experienced blinding headaches, Beth had trouble breathing and their son’s mouth and lips burned when he tried drinking the water. They discovered the house had been a meth lab. Beth said, “I didn’t know chemicals could seep into the walls and still be emitting toxic fumes forever.”

Many people don’t know that, either.

Mold infestation is a leading problem many new homeowners face.

An Austin family found out their dream house was infested with toxic black mold (stachybotrys) when they all became extremely sick. The family was plagued with stomach problems, diarrhea, vomiting, memory loss and they were coughing up blood. They left the house behind but not their health problems.

There are countless situations where people have been stuck with a toxic home that they can’t live in and they can’t sell. Before signing on the dotted line, help ensure the safety of your new home and the safety of your loved ones with a Pre-purchase Inspection.

The Pre-purchase Inspection includes comprehensive environmental testing for:

Air contaminants

Water pollutants

Mold, mycotoxins, and MVOCs (Microbial Volatile Organic Compounds)

VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), SVOCs (Semi-Volatile Organic Compounds) and VVOCs (Very Volatile Organic Compounds)

Electromagnetic fields (magnetic fields, electric fields, “dirty electricity” and radiofrequency radiation)

Radon, combustible gases, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide

Lighting and Sound issues

Final Report, Analysis and Mitigation Plan

Once the inspection is completed, we compile all laboratory results and provide a comprehensive report, including an analysis of our findings, and schedule a consultation with you (and your realtor, if applicable) to discuss the overall health of the property. Our goal is to provide you with the information necessary to make an informed decision about the property’s health and safety before committing to buy it.
