Wood Destroying Insect Inspection
Not only are wood destroying insects inconvenient pests to homeowners, they can also compromise the structural integrity of your home. Wood destroying insects include carpenter bees and carpenter ants that damage wood by tunneling holes to lay their larvae and termites that eat the cellulose primarily found in wood. I will visually assess your home to determine if wood destroying insects are present and if found, recommend the best action to take to eradicate these pests and protect your property from future infestations.
Radon is a radioactive cancer-causing gas that comes from the breakdown of naturally occurring uranium in soil and rock. Radon enters homes through openings that are in contact with the ground, like cracks in the foundation and slab, openings around pipes and sump pumps.
You cannot see, smell or taste radon, but it may be a problem in your home. The Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today and the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers.
Protect your family’s health and ultimately, their lives, with an accurate, non-invasive radon test in your home. The test usually takes 48 hours.
Thermography is the use of an infrared imaging and measurement instrument to measure the thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermal imaging can assist in locating hazards invisible to the human eye or digital cameras.
I use a state-of-the-art thermal imaging camera to inspect temperature differences and abnormalities which can be caused by moisture or hotspots attributed to electrical dangers. The use of this service allows me to identify unseen problems in your home and gives you valuable insight into how to mitigate potential issues.
