Yes! It’s important to have the proper testing done before you make an expensive purchase such as buying a new home. Don’t take on someone else’s headache. Also, it’s good to have testing done before you put your house on the market so no unexpected snags occur along the way.
It’s important to understand that it’s impossible to completely get rid of mold and radon. Mold spores can be found in the air inside your home. And even slight radon levels are considered normal, depending on where you live.
As professionals, we cannot recommend trusting store-bought testing kits. Most of these do-it-yourself kits aren’t able to test for as many issues as we can. We’re also the best at reading and explaining test results.
For the majority of the issues we test for, testing is the only way of even knowing they exist. Without the proper test methods, a homeowner is at risk for a number of health and safety issues.
We recommend that clients be present and involved in all inspections. This way, we’re able to educate and show you exactly what we’re doing and what problems you might be faced with.
