Wood-destroying insect (WDI) inspections are sometimes commonly referred to as a "termite inspection." The inspection may include probing and/or sounding of unobstructed and accessible areas to determine the presence or absence of visual evidence of wood-destroying insects. This inspection may not include mold, mildew, and non-insect destroying organisms. Some states may require a wood-destroying organism inspection in addition to a WDI inspection.
WDI inspectors may require specialized training and/or certifications. WDI inspections are outside of the scope of the home inspection as it requires specialized training, certifications or licensing in most municipalities and states. Home inspectors also are not required to report on wood-destroying organisms. This is an additional service to our standard exam.
Radon testing for real estate sales should be conducted with devices approved as per EPA testing protocol. Radon gas and its decay product (finely divided metal, polonium) are radioactive, and insufficiently ingested amounts over a period of time may cause lung cancer (second only to smoking). EPA recommends mitigation (specialized, but simple ventilation systems) be installed when the test average reads 4.0 (or higher) picocuries per liter.
Radon testing is outside of the scope of the inspection as it requires specialized equipment and training. A home inspection strictly is a visual inspection and typically not an environmental inspection. This is an additional service to our standard exam.
