Commercial Inspections

Commercial inspections are assessments of the condition and safety of commercial properties, such as office buildings, warehouses, retail spaces, and other types of commercial real estate. Some examples of commercial inspections include:

  • Property condition assessments: These inspections are typically conducted when purchasing or refinancing a commercial property to determine the property's overall condition, identify any potential issues or hazards, and estimate the cost of necessary repairs or upgrades.
  • Environmental inspections: These inspections are conducted to assess potential environmental hazards on a commercial property, such as asbestos, lead paint, or mold.
  • Structural inspections: These inspections evaluate the structural integrity of a commercial property, including the foundation, walls, roof, and other key structural components.
  • Electrical inspections: These inspections evaluate the electrical systems of a commercial property to ensure they meet safety standards and are functioning properly.
  • Plumbing inspections: These inspections assess the plumbing systems of a commercial property, including pipes, fixtures, and water heaters, to identify any issues or potential hazards.
  • Fire safety inspections: These inspections assess a commercial property's fire safety measures, including fire alarms, sprinkler systems, fire doors, and emergency exits, to ensure they meet safety standards and are functioning properly.
  • ADA compliance inspections: These inspections assess a commercial property's compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), including accessibility features such as wheelchair ramps, parking spaces, and restroom facilities.

Radon Testing

Radon and the Importance of testing 

Radon is a naturally occurring, colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that is produced by the decay of uranium in soil, rock, and water. It can seep into homes and buildings through cracks in the foundation, walls, or floors, as well as through openings around pipes, cables, or drains.

Radon is important to test for because it is a known carcinogen, which means it can cause cancer. Exposure to high levels of radon over a long period of time increases the risk of developing lung cancer, particularly in smokers or those with a history of smoking. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, after smoking.

Testing for radon is important because it allows homeowners and building occupants to determine if their indoor air is contaminated with high levels of radon. Testing is typically done using a small device that is placed in the home or building for a period of time to measure the levels of radon present. If high levels are detected, steps can be taken to reduce the levels and minimize the risk of exposure.

In many countries, radon testing is recommended or required as part of the home buying and selling process. It is also recommended that radon testing be conducted periodically to ensure that levels remain low. Radon testing is a simple and inexpensive way to ensure that your home or building is safe from this potential health hazard.

Air Quality Test

Testing the air quality in your home can provide important information about the health and safety of you and your family. Here are a few good reasons why you should consider testing the air quality in your home:

Protect your health: Poor indoor air quality can lead to respiratory problems, allergies, and other health issues. Testing the air quality in your home can help you identify any potential risks and take action to protect your health.

Identify sources of pollution: Testing can help identify sources of pollution in your home, such as mold, chemicals, or poor ventilation. This information can help you take steps to improve the air quality, such as increasing ventilation or using air purifiers.

Improve energy efficiency: Testing can also help you identify areas where your home may be leaking air, which can negatively impact your energy bills. By identifying and fixing these areas, you can improve your home's energy efficiency and potentially save money on your utility bills.

Overall, testing the air quality in your home can provide valuable information that can help you protect your health, improve your home's energy efficiency, and create a safer and more comfortable living environment for you and your family.

Thermal imaging

Thermal imaging is an important tool for home inspections as it can help identify areas of a home that may have issues with insulation, moisture, electrical problems, and other potential problems that may not be visible to the naked eye.

During a home inspection, a thermal imaging camera can detect temperature differences in various areas of the home. For example, it can detect heat loss in areas with poor insulation or detect moisture in areas where there may be a leak. This information can be used to identify potential problems and recommend repairs or improvements to ensure the home is safe and energy-efficient.

Thermal imaging can also be used to detect electrical problems, such as overheating wires or circuit breakers, which can pose a fire hazard. By identifying these issues, the homeowner can take steps to repair or replace the faulty electrical components, preventing potential hazards.

Overall, thermal imaging is an important tool for home inspectors as it can help identify potential problems that may not be visible to the naked eye. By detecting these issues early on, homeowners can take steps to address them, ensuring the safety and efficiency of their homes.

Drone Roof Inspections

Using a drone during an inspection when the roof is higher than usual can be incredibly important because it allows for a more comprehensive and detailed inspection of the roof and surrounding areas. Drones can provide a safe and efficient way to access hard-to-reach areas, particularly those that are high off the ground and may be difficult to access through traditional means.                                   

A drone can be equipped with a high-resolution camera that can capture images and videos of the roof and surrounding areas, including areas that may be difficult or unsafe for an inspector to access. This can provide a more accurate and detailed view of the roof's condition, allowing inspectors to identify any potential issues such as damage, leaks, or other problems that may be present.

Using a drone can also be faster and more cost-effective than traditional methods, such as using scaffolding or hiring a cherry picker. This can reduce the amount of time required to complete an inspection and minimize any disruptions to the property or surrounding area.

Overall, using a drone during a roof inspection can be an important tool for identifying potential issues and ensuring the safety and integrity of a property. It provides a safe and efficient way to access hard-to-reach areas, and can provide a more comprehensive and detailed view of the roof's condition.


Crawl Bot

Using a crawl bot during a home inspection can provide valuable information about the condition of the crawl space, which is an important component of the overall health and safety of a home. Here are a few reasons why using a crawl bot can be beneficial during a home inspection:

  • Access hard-to-reach areas: Crawl spaces can be difficult to access and navigate, especially if they are small or contain obstacles. Using a crawl bot allows you to explore these areas without having to physically crawl through them yourself, which can be safer and more efficient.
  • Detect hidden issues: Crawl spaces can harbor a variety of problems, such as water damage, mold, pests, and structural issues. By using a crawl bot, you can identify these issues and assess their severity, which can help you make informed decisions about any necessary repairs or maintenance.
  • Document findings: Using a crawl bot to inspect a crawl space can also provide a record of your findings, including photographs or videos of any issues you discover. This documentation can be useful for negotiating with sellers, obtaining repair estimates, or communicating with contractors.

Overall, using a crawl bot during a home inspection can help you gain a more complete understanding of the condition of the crawl space, which can inform your decision-making process and potentially save you time and money in the long run.
