Radon is a naturally-occurring radioactive gas and the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US, according to the Surgeon General. Radon can enter your building through cracks in the foundation, and because it’s odorless and colorless, the only way to detect it is with a professional inspection. If your NPI inspector finds radon in your building, a radon mitigation system can be installed to keep your family safe.
Your NPI inspector can provide many different types of field services, including occupancy status inspections, property assessment and condition reports, insurance risk assessment inspections, REO foreclosures and more. Any of these services can be tailored to your specific needs.
Your NPI inspector can check your basement, crawl spaces, attic, carpet and more for potentially hazardous mold. If mold is suspected, samples can be collected and analyzed to confirm the extent of the contamination and determine necessary remediation.
National Property Inspections can help you maintain an energy efficient property. Using thermal imaging cameras, blower doors and other advanced technology, your inspector will perform a complete energy audit to reveal air leaks, under-insulated areas and more.
Using an infrared camera specially designed to identify changes in temperature, your NPI inspector will scan and analyze your building's walls, ceilings and more. Hot spots can indicate potential hazards such as wiring issues, while cold spots can mean moisture or missing insulation. An infrared inspection sheds light on the small issues you can’t see before they become big problems.
Vacant homes and buildings need care and attention, and National Property Inspections offers many preservation services to keep your property well-maintained. From lock changing and winterization to lawn care and snow removal, we maintain your vacant property with regular documentation and reports to give you peace of mind.
Termites and other wood-destroying organisms (WDOs) can cause catastrophic damage to your building's structure if left untreated. Your NPI inspector can identify the presence of termites, carpenter ants, wood-boring beetles and more before they cause irreversible damage.
Your NPI inspector can act as an expert witness to provide testimony in legal disputes. National Property Inspections provides thorough inspection reports and in-person testimony regarding construction and inspection-related issues that can mean the difference between winning and losing a case.
Sewer and septic system problems can cause major issues for a structure, and NPI can help diagnose them with the proven techniques and the latest technology. Your inspector can document issues like pipe obstructions, tree root intrusion and sewer line bellying that can be costly and even hazardous if left uncorrected.
National Property Inspections recommends a well flow test to determine potential issues with a well’s connected equipment, such as the pump and storage tank. All visible well components are inspected and monitored for fluctuations and other irregularities which can signal a problem with your well equipment. Your NPI inspector will also deliver a detailed report of their findings so you can order appropriate repairs from a professional well contractor.
If you’re buying or selling a property that draws its water from a private well, National Property Inspections can perform a water quality inspection. Your NPI inspector will collect water samples and send them to an approved laboratory for testing. Well water is tested for Coliform bacteria, particulates, mineral content and even radon to determine its safety to drink.
