There are many areas in every home where mold growth can be hiding. A professional mold inspection can help you identify those areas where mold is actively growing in your home. Mold inspections will often reveal multiple areas of mold contamination which effectively have a cumulative effect equal to that of a very large area.
Mold and moisture inspections are always recommended even when mold contamination is not present in a building. These inspections are performed for individuals suffering from health problems believed to be related to poor indoor air quality, as well as, during real estate transactions, and litigation between buyers/sellers, tenants/landlords, or claimants and insurance companies.
Because indoor mold is a direct cause of so many health problems, a mold inspection is a wise investment for everyone, not just those who are already suffering symptoms.
Radon gas is a radioactive gas formed by the decay of uranium in soil and rock. Radon gas can seep into the cracks in a building's foundation and other cracks and openings, and if not ventilated properly can be extremely dangerous. Radon gas cannot be seen or smelt, so it's very easy to simply be oblivious to the fact that it's developing around you.
Radon exposure is a leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, so it's extremely important to make sure that your home is tested for radon gas. A1 Home Inspections of Bismarck is your go-to team to make sure that your home is safe from dangerous levels of radon gas.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that is fire, heat and many chemicals. It used to be incorporated into many different products, most commonly building materials. After the realization that asbestos is extremely dangerous material that can cause mesothelioma, it's been banned in all products after 2000. However, especially in homes built before then, it's extremely important for you and your family's health to get your home inspected for asbestos- by a professional- as it cannot be seen.

A home inspection is a visual process where all of the items typically used within a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. Doors and windows are opened and closed, roofing materials inspected, air-conditioning and heating systems operated. The Inspector will fill the sinks and tub(s), run the shower(s), and flush the toilets. All the while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested. Upon completion a report will be distributed to you.
New construction inspections are performed at the completion of construction, but prior to your final walk through with the Builder's Customer Service Representative or Superintendent. It is always a good idea to verify that utilities (gas, water, and electric) have been turned on, either by you or the Builder depending on the Builder's policy. The inspection should be scheduled just a day or two before your final walk through with the Builder. This will ensure that most, if not all, last minute items have been completed prior to your inspection. At the conclusion of the inspection a completed report will be distributed to you.
