Every Inspection Includes Complimentary:
Visual Mould Inspection

Infrared Thermal Imaging
Using an infrared camera our inspections can help you locate moisture inside walls, ceilings and floors. These powerful cameras are also helpful in finding missing insulation, overheating electrical problems, plumbing leaks, and heat and air conditioning air leakage.

Mould Air Quality Testing
Whether it's a new home or an older home, the potential for mould in the home is always a possibility. Health risks can increase with the amount of mould spores in the air. The symptoms start out as flu like symptoms that can later lead to long term health effects. Having the home tested for mould is a service your inspector provides. This can be added to your home inspection at the time of the inspection. Cost includes full lab report (2 business days for results.
Mould Stain Removal
On average, 30 to 50% of the attics we inspect have mould in them. For many clients the presence of mould in the attic can be a deal breaker. Your inspector can not only determine the reason the mould is present; we can now remove it. Minimum charge for this service is $400, then $1 to $2 per square foot. We also provide a life time transferable warranty. Please note; our home inspection is not to be used as a vehicle to obtain addditional revenue. Please obtain quotes from at least 3 other companies
