Mold Inspections

and Testing

Mold can be troublesome whether you are buying or selling a home. Mold can mean interior water leaks, structural damage, and health concerns.
 
White Glove understands how important an accurate assessment of the presence of mold is, as well as the damage caused, and the related health concerns.
 
When to Test for Mold:
 • When purchasing a home.  
• After any type of flooding, roof leaks, or water penetration.
• When you smell mold or mildew, even if it is not visually noticeable.
• If anyone in your home is suffering from respiratory problems, or chronic colds or flu.

Commercial Inspections

An inspection ensures that the property is safe, up to specifications, and the structural components and mechanical systems are properly functioning.

 

Our professional property condition review will help in making an informed decision regarding your real estate transaction.

 

We inspect all types of commercial properties.

Radon Testing

Radon is a Class A carcinogen and is the second leading cause to over 20,000 cases of lung cancer a year.
 
With the severe health effects radon can bring, the EPA highly recommends testing for radon, as testing is the only way to know if your family is at risk in your home.
 
Safe and reliable radon testing is a must when looking to buy or sell a home.
 
Our team of professionals offers the most exact form of radon testing available.
