  MOLD TESTING

When looking for an individual to evaluate your home or business for potential indoor mold growth it is important to use someone that is not involved in the remediation process. That is exactly what Guardian Home Inspectors offers; unbiased testing without a conflict of interest.

We are usually called into a home or business for one or more of the following reasons:

  • Recent Water Damage

  • Visible Growth

  • Strange Smell

  • Health Complications

  • Looking For Peace of Mind

  • Real Estate Transactions

We help people in all of the above situations find out not only if they have a problem, but also where the source is. Mold is all around us and every indoor environment has acceptable levels. Do not guess at what is going on with your living/work environment. We offer hard evidence about what is going on in your home or business.  We offer a detailed report with peace of mind showing one of two results; that a particular mold was found that is toxic or there is no problem for concern. 

   If you do not see anything, but are experiencing other symptoms of a mold problem we WILL  find it and provide you with the information necessary to get rid of the problem.

Radon is a radioactive gas that is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and chemically inert. It is formed by the natural radioactive decay of uranium in rock, soil and water. Unless you test for it, there is no way of telling how much is present.

  • Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States.

  • Nearly one out of every 15 homes has a radon level the EPA considers to be elevated.

  • Because most people spend as much as 90 percent of their time indoors, indoor exposure to radon is an important concern.


WATER  ANALYSIS

The National Ground Water Association (NGWA) recommends well owners test their water at least annually for bacteria, nitrates, and any contaminants of local concern. More frequent testing should be considered if:

  • There is a change in the taste, odor, appearance of the well water, or if a problem occurs such as a broken well cap, inundation by floodwaters, or a new contamination source

  • The well has a history of bacterial contamination

  • The septic system has recently malfunctioned

  • Family members or house guests have recurrent incidents of gastrointestinal illness

  • An infant is living in the home, or

  • To monitor the efficiency and performance of home water treatment equipment.

Check to be sure your water is free from: Total coliform,  E-Coli, nitrates, nitrites, lead, Mercury, Chloride, Iron, or pesticides.

  Drinking large amounts of water with nitrates is particularly threatening to infants (for example, when mixed in formula).
