Radon Inspection Services
Radon is a radioactive gas that is known to cause severe health problems of which the most common is lung cancer. This gas can build up indoors, especially in the lower level of your home and put your family at risk. At NextDay Inspect, we offer Radon testing and provide recommendations for remediation in the case that the level of Radon is above the safe levels as stated by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) to ensure that your property is safe.
There are regions in North America known to have higher levels of Radon. In Virginia, there are almost 700 cases of lung cancer linked to Radon exposure every year. There have been reports of elevated levels of Radon in 15 cities and 46 counties that are classified as zone 1 (high-risk Radon level) in Virginia.
The EPA has classified Radon exposure zones into 3 categories, zone 1, zone 2 and zone 3, with zone 1 having the highest risk of exposure. So, don’t put yourself, your family and your employees at the risk of exposure to this unhealthy and dangerous gas. Call us now and get your home inspected ASAP!
Mold & Air Quality Testing
Mold is an organic growth in the building, the main cause of mold presence in a building is moisture. Therefore, at NextDay Inspect we provide both services:
- Moisture Evaluations
This constitutes a visual site evaluation of the areas you suspect of mold or moisture. Using a moisture meter and infrared camera, the inspector can help identify active leaks or areas with the potential for water intrusion. We will provide recommendations on how to correct these high-risk areas and help you decide if mold sampling would be beneficial at this time.
- Mold Sampling
There are two classes of molding sampling;
(a) Swap & Bio-Tape
(b) Air Sampling
Air samples can be taken in each of your areas of concern. Laboratory analysis will indicate the types and amount of mold spores in the air, if any. Swab samples can also be taken of visible growth on surfaces. The lab results will confirm whether or not the growth is mold, and provide details on the specific type and amount.
