Radon is a cancer-causing natural radioactive gas that you can't see, smell or taste. Its presence in your home can pose a danger to your family's health. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and the second leading cause of lung cancer in America. The U.S. Surgeon General and EPA recommend that all homes be tested for the presence of radon. MaxPro Inspection is a qualified radon testing service, having completed the Advanced Radon Measurement Service Provider Course. We use measuring devices that are placed in the lowest level of the residence for a period of 48 hours, with the results available at the end of the test.

Regardless the age of the property, we wouldn't consider buying a home today without scoping the sewer during the buyer’s inspection. This service can pinpoint expensive problems beneath the surface; problems which are often not covered by home owner's insurance. If a problem presents, it's usually by way of roots impacting the line as they have grown throughout the years. Additionally, there are issues related to sewer lines becoming damaged due to excessive soil heaving, extreme weight loads being driven across the lines and, in some cases, the lines have simply deteriorated over the years.
How does it work?
A sewer scoping is a way to inspect the sewer line from the interior of the home to the main line in the street. A very long, coiled metal hose with a tiny video camera attached to the end is inserted, typically through a clean out valve, and routed into the sewer system, from the home to the street. The camera view is typically visible on a video screen attached to the main equipment. As the scope traverses the length of the sewer line, your sewer scope contractor will typically point out any abnormalities and explain how serious they might be. At the end of the inspection you will be presented with a written report and and a video of the inspection.
Mold in your home can be incredibly dangerous to your health and it is important that you perform a certified mold inspection to make sure you’re not at risk to any potential harms. Some of the symptoms and health hazards associated with mold in your home include asthma, allergic reactions, and other respiratory problems.
A wood destroying organism (WDO) inspection is a written report on a home or property with visible and accessible evidence of an infestation or damage by wood destroying organisms. Usually this means subterranean or dry wood termites, but will also cover wood destroying beetles and wood destroying fungi.
Well Water Testing
At the moment, the EPA doesn't regulate private wells, which means if your drinking water comes from your own well, you may be ingesting harmful contaminants. If your water comes from a public source, your community water supplier is required to provide you with a report on the safety and quality of your drinking water. Well Inspections include a two hour water flow and pressure test. Potability and Domestic water quality water samples are taken to a Colorado State approved lab for analysis.
If you are concerned about the health and safety of the people in your home, it’s important that you schedule a professional water analysis and inspection from MaxPro Inspections .
Performed with infrared cameras, it captures the light that exists just outside the visible spectrum. The thermal images that are produced allow to quickly and accurately identify defects that may not always be apparent to the naked eye. Thermal images also show surface-heat variations. Abnormally hot electrical components and connections can be viewed during an electrical inspection. Areas of moisture that may lead to leaks and structural damage can be located based on apparent temperature differences. Heat loss and air leakage in the building envelope, and even areas of insufficient insulation can be pinpointed with great precision.
Drones are great tool for home inspection! Not every roof can be walked on, it depends on roof covering materials, pitch of the roof and just over all conditions. Even inspector are not required to walk the roof by standards of practice we are prefer to do so, it allows to have the best view of the conditions the roof is in. But it is not always safe for inspector to get up on the roof (example: pitch of the roof is too steep), or the roof covering materials are to bridal to walk on (example: Clay Tiles are really brittle and can crack if walked on ). That is where Drones are coming handy! It allows inspector to take a closer look at roof covering materials and components and evaluate if it has any defects.
