After we provide our professional visual inspection on the home or business, there are a few more interesting procedures you may consider.
Chimney Inspection Video: The interior lining of a fireplace chimney should be inspected prior to the purchase of a home, this may save you an additional expense. This inspection should be done after the chimney has been cleaned. We check for cracks and defects that are not covered by a standard inspection.
Pressurization test inspection on a home or business that has gas fired appliances: Very important that all fossil fuel appliance's will draft properly and burn efficiently. Back drafting of carbon monoxide will happen when a home has negative pressure. Exhaust fan's, leaky HVAC ductwork will cause negative pressure.
HVAC Airflow measurements and temperature difference in the duct system would pay for itself in the long run. Taking temperature measurements from the supply and return duct system will provide information on efficiency and defects. Taking airflow CFM measurements will also provide operational defects if any.

Radon, Formaldehyde, Carbon Dioxide, Carbon Monoxide, TVOC, Mold, Asbestos. There are hundreds of hazardous chemicals that make up that are in the air we test for.
