Air Quality Testing, one of the many methods we use to test for mold, consists of a comprehensive testing process where a vacuum pump is strategically placed in multiple locations in the home to determine the quality of air is in the structure. The pump takes samples of the air by capturing the spores in a filter. The test reveals the amount and type of spores in the air that are continuously inhaled by people and pets that compromise the respiratory system. Our samples are shipped to our partnering lab, InspectorLab, in Florida where the samples are observed. The Microbiologist in the lab examine the samples and develop a detailed and understanding report for our clients. Typical turnaround time for report is 2-3 business days from when test is performed.
Radon gas is a carcinogenic gas that is the lead cause of lung cancer among non-smokers in the United States killing 22,000-25,000 annually. Our testing procedure complies with the EPA Standards of Practice of testing guidelines. This consists of a professional monitor strategically placed in a structure for a minimum of a 48 hour test where we average the readings over the course of the test and determine the levels of Radon Gas in the structure. A detailed report is delivered within 24 hours of the monitor being retrieved. Feel free to call (770) 356-3561 for additional details and testing procedures for Radon Gas testing.

Thermal Imaging scanning of a home can help determine many temperature anomalies which can affect the efficiency of a home. The ability to perform thermal imaging scans can identify where heated/cooled air is leaking out of the structure rather it be insufficient insulation, poor window and door seals, missing wall and floor insulation. Thermal imaging photos are taken with our professional camera and inserted into a report showing the different anomalies that were located through our thorough inspection. Another benefit from this service includes locating moisture intrusion from leaking service/waste lines, leaking roofs, improper grading, and through exterior siding. Confirmation of potential moisture intrusion is performed with a professional moisture meter. This service is provided as a courtesy with our general home inspection service.
