EQ Inspections

Quality You Can Count On


Septic Inspection

For this inspection service, a comprehensive evaluation of the property’s septic system is carried out. The process includes a detailed examination of the septic tank and its functionality. The inspection also encompasses a flow test to assess the system’s capacity to manage wastewater effectively. The results of this inspection are compiled in a comprehensive report, offering insights and recommendations for maintenance or necessary repairs to ensure the system’s optimal performance.

Radon Testing

Radon measurement is an important inspection service to schedule for any prospective home-buyer. Many radon hotspots are yet to be discovered, and although radon gas naturally occurs underground, that doesn’t make it any less dangerous. Radon is a known carcinogen, and our team is determined to help protect our clients by using cutting-edge equipment to test homes for unsafe levels of radon gas.

Well Inspections

Well inspections are a crucial part of maintaining a safe and healthy water supply. They involve a professional examining your well’s construction, water quality, and overall functionality to identify any potential problems. This can help ensure your water is safe to drink and identify any repairs or maintenance that may be needed.

Well Flow Testing

For this inspection service, we’ll conduct a pressure test on the well servicing the home. This will indicate to us whether or not the water supply is adequate for the home’s needs, an important piece of information to have before you make a final buying decision.

Mold Inspections

A mold inspection determines whether there’s any visible mold present and estimates its size (in square feet). An inspection typically includes a visual examination for signs of mold growth, an assessment of water damage, testing for humidity levels, and inspecting the HVAC system for signs of mold contamination. Since mold often drifts into homes from the outside, marginal amounts are almost always present indoors. A mold inspection will be able to determine if the problem was caused by water damage.

Mold Testing

Mold inside a home is problematic for a number of reasons, the most pressing of which concerns the health of residents and potential damage to building materials. Mold follows moisture, and if there is water in the walls or the ceilings, then that can be a major issue—not to mention, mold spores can cause persistent allergies. We’re able to comprehensively inspect and test a home for the presence of mold, taking samples from the air and surfaces as necessary for testing at a local laboratory.

Wdo / Termite Inspections

Wood-destroying organisms can inflict serious damage to the structure of a home, and it’s important to have the property inspected for termite damage before you make a buying decision. We’ll assess each readily accessible structural component, identifying previous termite damage if present, as well as looking for any signs of an active termite problem.
