Why Get an Environmental Inspection?
There are many reasons why you should get an environmental inspection but by far the most important are for your health and those around you. If you are having respiratory issues or rashes that could be an indication that you may want to have a certified inspector come out to inspect for environmental allergens.
Additionally, in most municipalities in the Bay Area, persons wanting to do major renovations to their home can be required to get certain environmental tests performed prior to the issuance of their building permits. This is done for many reasons, but one important one is that irresponsible demolition of the property can release fibers into the air possibly affecting the health of others in the neighborhood. The goal is not to be punitive but to protect the health of you, your loved ones, and those living around you.
Environmental Inspections can be expensive because each sample taken has a cost component which is passed through to the labs as analysis fees which is in addition to the base inspection fee. For that reason, we try to work with you to get an accurate scope based on the issues that are occurring in your property.
