Indoor Air Quality

The living space of a house or RV is very vulnerable to high humidity levels, insufficient ventilation and build-up of gas emissions. An overlooked indoor environment can initiate mold and cause serious health issues. 

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) studies indicate that indoor levels of pollutants may be two to five times - and occasionally more than 100 times - higher than outdoor levels.

About The Inspection

Items are listed alphabetically, not in order of importance or potency.

CARBON MONOXIDE

  • CO (carbon monoxide) PPM (parts per million) readings are taken and compared to recommended levels. 
  • Likely sources are checked for CO emission levels.
  • Readings obtained are then analyzed and reported. 

Did you know that a faulty furnace can emit carbon monoxide from heating vents?

RELATIVE HUMIDITY & MOLD

  • RH (relative humidity) values are recorded for out-of-range values.
  • Sources of moisture, namely condensation, lack of ventilation, apparent leaks are identified and reported.
  • Vulnerable areas are examined for presence of mold. 
  • Mold spore identification tests are available, upon request.
  • Recommendations are made to rectify problems and appropriate solutions are offered.

Did you know that mold can be caused in the absence of water leakages? Excessive condensation and inadequate ventilation can cause mold.

PROPANE LEAK CHECK (FOR RVs)

  • Permanent propane storage (ASME) tank and/or removable (DOT) tanks and all related valves, controls and pigtails are checked for leaks.
  • Exterior hoses and connections, and interior, visible and accessible supply lines are also scanned for leaks.
  • All leaks are clearly tagged for further follow-up and repairs.

NATURAL GAS LEAK CHECK (FOR HOMES)

  • Furnace, boiler and all related valves, controls and connections are checked for leaks.
  • Exterior connections, and interior, visible and accessible supply lines are also scanned for leaks.
  • All leaks are clearly tagged for further follow-up and repairs.
