Radon and other environmental issues

Radon and environmental issues such as mold, asbestos, or lead-based paint can be health concerns for some home buyers. Baker Property Inspections can do radon testing and limited sampling. We can also refer you to local labs for more thorough investigation.

 

Radon Testing

You can request a radon test with a full inspection or as an independent test.

Our radon tests run for a 48-hour period with a femto-TECH continuous radon monitor that uses an open grid pulsed ion chamber detector to measure the radon. This monitor takes other atmospheric readings to verify the test validity.

We email the results to you the day the test is finished.

More information about radon can be found online.

Mold, Asbestos, and Lead-Based Paint

If mold is found or asbestos is suspected, we can take samples for analysis by a local lab. Houses built before 1978 are assumed to have lead-based paint.
