The integrity of your home is much more than just structural.

Radon Gas

Radon Gas is a known carcinogen and the second leading cause of lung cancer according to the EPA. We use EPA approved Electret Ion Chamber (EIC) technology to test your home for Radon Gas. Our testing equipment will be placed on the lowest livable area of your home where it will monitor Radon levels over a 48-72 hour time frame. Once completed, our inspectors will retrieve the equipment and generate an in-house report that very same day.

Indoor Air Quality Sampling

Indoor air quality plays a significant factor in overall health. The average person spends about 90% of their life inside. Homeowners and property owners concerned about mold, allergens, improper ventilation and health of building occupants, should consider air sampling. We collect an air sample to determine the level of mold spores and locate the source of moisture or water. Instances of visible growth can be swabbed and sent for specific identification. We also look for other factors, such as inadequate ventilation that may lead to microbial growth.

Water Quality Testing

This is a serious question concerning the health of your family. Even if you have public water (city water) it is possible to have contamination due to contact with pipes, connections, or inadequate water treatment facilities. If you have private water (well water) you are responsible for your own water being safe and should test to ensure your safety. Oregon Law requires the seller of real estate to test for Coliform Bacteria, Nitrates and Arsenic. We collect water samples and send them to an accredited laboratory for full analysis. Reports are generated and sent typically within 3 business days.

Lead Paint

We have certified inspectors who can determine if specified areas of the home have lead or lead hazards. We can test surfaces or components and any areas that you specify that may be desired, by taking paint chip samples to an EPA recognized testing laboratory. These tests will tell you about the areas in your home where lead-safe work practices are needed. If you are planning a major renovation or demolition, a lead risk assessment may be required by an abatement company.


Buildings may contain asbestos in their walls, ceilings, floors, roofs, siding, HVAC systems, insulation, pipes and more. When asbestos-containing material is disturbed and improperly handled, tiny hazardous fibers are released into the air and may cause lung cancer and other illnesses. All commercial buildings regardless of construction date, and residential buildings constructed before Jan. 1, 2004, must have an asbestos survey conducted by an accredited inspector prior to any demolition or renovation activities.
