Radon is the second leading cause of cancer in the United States. Radon is an invisible gas that is oderless and comes from the ground. It has been determine that radon gas can cause cancer if a person is exposed to excessive amounts over a prolonged period of time. Radon can be present in areas with rock formations. We offer tests that can determine if radon is present in the home and at what levels.
Mold and Air Quality Testing
Mold is a serious health hazard and can cause respiratory problems and other health issues. Mold can be very hazardous for young children, older adults and anyone else esposed to high levels of mold especially people with allergies. Knowing whether or not mold is present in the home you are planning on buying is the first step. During all of our inspections, we visually inspect for mold. If mold is present, we offer additional tests that can determine what types of mold are present and at what levels. These tests can also determine if the types of mold present are dangerous to humans. We also offer this as a stand alone service to anyone who is concerned about mold in their home.
SMARTMOVE Inspection provides commercial property inspection (widely been regarded as Due Diligence Assessments) and consulting services to help companies, investors, developers and lenders in the decision making routine when buying, leasing, investing, selling, rehabbing, lending and of course managing property.
As an owner, you need to have a proper understanding of how well a property has been maintained, more so if they have leased the property to a business. On the other hand, potential leasers need to know the conditions and expected maintenance costs of those systems and building parts they are agreeing to maintain at the time of their lease period.
aSBESTOS AND LEAD PAINT Testing
Asbestos and lead paint were a commonly used building material in the United States throughout most of the 1900’s. In the 1970’s it was discovered that exposure to asbestos fibers and lead paint was linked to cancer, and production of new asbestos materials was banned in in 1978 (however, since the sale of existing asbestos materials was not banned, houses and buildings built much later may contain asbestos and lead paint).
Let SMARTMOVE Inspection be your trusted partner for your commercial or residential asbestos and lead paint project needs.
Pre-listing CONSULATION SERVICES
Pre-Listing Consultation. This is a fast paced, verbal-only walk through of the owner’s home. The property owner takes detailed notes as we visit all of the components and systems in the home. I explain in detail what a buyer will be looking for, and what the buyer's home inspector will likely include in their inspection report. This service allows the owner to make decisions on whether to repair, replace or upgrade the various items identified, without the deadline of a closing date.
The Pre-Listing Consultation is the client's opportunity to ask the important questions involving their home. What needs to be repaired and why? How long with the components (roof, siding, windows, dishwasher, stove, etc.) last? Should I lease my home or sell it out-right? How much does it cost to get things repaired? What should I plan on replacing or repairing? These types of questions and the answers will help the client understand their home, in it's current condition, as a system. They can then decide what the next steps should be.
