Homes that have had past or current water intrusion issues, may have mold. Certain types of mold, or high concentrations of mold, can be hazardous to your family’s health. Mold testing—and taking steps to combat its presence—can be an essential step in ensuring your new home is safe. This can be particularly important for the very young, the very old and people with allergies or other chronic conditions.

Radon

You cannot see, smell or taste radon, but it still may be a concern in your home

This privately-owned pipeline leads from the house to the publicly owned main sewer line or septic tank. Sewer scope inspection can reveal damage to the pipes, blockages, and other problems. These problems, if not repaired, could lead to extensive costs and damages.
