Environmental Testing helps all home buyers uncover issues that could impact their families’ health. We recommend that you invest in environmental test services to ensure that you’ll prevent a bigger problem in the future. Also, it’s critical to have all homebuyers schedule an environmental inspection before plunking down a deposit to make sure that the house you chose to buy is worth it and very safe to live in.
What Environmental Tests Should I Have?
A range of residential environmental inspection tests is available for every homebuyer in Grand Rapids, and all over the U.S. We suggest that you follow the list below:
Mold can hide on walls, under a coat of paint, and under rugs. Home inspectors will look for visible signs of mold, but unless they see it or smell it musty, a potential buyer is unlikely to discover if a home has mold. Mold can be present anywhere that water or moisture has leaked into a home – around leaky pipes, windows, ceilings, or basements that may have flooded and poorly dried. Mold exposure can cause or worsen health problems like allergies, asthma, and more serious respiratory illnesses.
Since lead-based paints weren’t banned until 1978, many older homes likely have lead-based paint. Paint chips can flake off due to deterioration or, during renovations, be released into the air as lead-based dust. Lead can also be absorbed from the soil. Older pipes, faucets, and plumbing fixtures may contain lead, which can enter drinking water.
Before the 1980s, asbestos was used in roofs, pipes, heating pipes, attics, siding, flooring, shingles, and wall panels. When unaffected, asbestos generally does not pose a health risk; however, the particles can break down and cause health problems. If a buyer plans renovations, the asbestos tests should be more than one mark on the home inspection list.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in homes across the United States and is found at high levels in one in 15 homes. It causes about 21,000 lung cancer deaths each year. This is why Radon testing is a must for all home buyers.
