What Do We Look For?
We test for a variety of contaminants, such as bacteria, E.coli, lead, nitrates, total dissolved solids, etc. We follow industry standards and guidelines to ensure the accuracy and reliability of our results. If you are purchasing a home with a well, your lender may require specific contaminants to be tested. For your convenience, we have sets of testing that are designed to match requirements for conventional or FHA financing, but we always recommend checking with your lender to make sure their requirements are covered.

Other Services We Offer
Although Inspections and Radon services are our main focus, Enviroquest offers these additional services to complement them. They can also be done by themselves if needed. We offer discounts for bundling many of these services with a home inspection.
Radon Testing and Mitigation
The purpose of this screening-type measurement is to quickly determine if a house contains high concentrations of radon gas. This measurement should provide information for deciding if there is a need for additional measurements or remediation. The standard testing procedures are based on the assumption that the greatest source of radon is the soil underlying the house. If other sources are suspected, additional measurements in different locations in the home may be considered. In the event that your Radon level does indicate that mitigation is needed, we are equipped to help you out with that. We utilize a third-party unaffiliated lab to analyze our tests. See our Radon Services page for more information on Radon.
Wood Destroying Insect Inspection
Are you concerned about the possible impact of wood destroying insects such as termites or powder post beetles? You may want this inspection. This is not covered in a standard whole house inspection because not everyone needs it. If you are purchasing a home, this type of inspection may be required by your lender. Make sure you confirm what is needed with them.
If your property has a well, you may want to test the water for contaminants. We can test for a variety of contaminants, such as bacteria, E.coli, lead, nitrates, total dissolved solids, etc. If you are purchasing a home with a well, your lender may require specific contaminants to be tested. For your convenience, we have sets of testing that are designed to match requirements for conventional or FHA financing, but we always recommend checking with your lender to make sure their requirements are covered. If you live in a home with a well, we recommend having your water tested annually to make sure any filtration or purification systems are still working properly
If you suspect a building has a mold issue, you may want to do an air test for mold spores. This will tell you exactly what kind of mold you are dealing with and can give you clues as to what is causing it, as well as whether remediation is called for.
Single Item Inspection
An inspection to ASHI standards of a single item or system of a house (i.e. plumbing, roof, porches, etc.). See our Inspection page for more info.
