What Does an Environmental Inspector Look For?

ProTech’s highly trained inspectors are qualified to check for asbestos, mold, lead, radon, termites, and other hidden hazards in a building. Just let us know which ones to add to your inspection, and we’ll schedule extra time.

Termites

Billions of dollars in structural damage are caused by termites every year. Add to that the billions spent trying to eradicate these wood-destroying pests, and you will understand why it is important to call in licensed termite inspectors to ensure that small problems are addressed before they become costly infestations.

Asbestos

Commonly used in building materials such as floor tiles, ceiling tiles, and roofing shingles, asbestos can cause irreparable lung damage when its fibers are inhaled. Like many environmentally hazardous substances, it is a hidden danger; you cannot tell whether such material contains asbestos simply by looking at it.

Mold

This fungus is very common and can range from being a minor irritant to a serious health hazard, depending on which strain it is. More than a health concern, it can also damage structures and property. Our certified mold inspectors can determine whether or not dangerous mold is on the property, and if remediation work is required.

Lead

Until fairly recently, lead was used in water pipes and in paint, even though it can cause health problems when ingested or inhaled. If lead is found on your premises, it is important to take proper safety precautions during renovations. Enlist an environmental inspector to ensure you know what you’re dealing with.

Radon

This odorless, invisible gas occurs naturally when uranium breaks down in the soil. It can seep into any building through the basement, crawl space, or concrete slab, causing severe lung damage with long-term exposure. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, exposure to radon is responsible for an estimated 20,000 lung cancer deaths each year. The only way to know if there is radon present in a structure is to test for it.

Request My Proposal

Don’t take chances with your health or the health of your employees, clients, or tenants. An environmental assessment can give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing the status of your property, and we’ll help you understand any mitigation that needs to occur.
