Radon Testing

Did you know that it is estimated that radon causes thousands of deaths each year? Breathing air that contains radon can cause lung cancer. You can't see, smell, or taste it, but radon in your Greensboro, High Point, or Winston-Salem, NC home could be a huge problem for you. Conducting a radon home test is the only way to see if you and your family are at risk. There are simple, inexpensive ways to fix a radon problem in your home, but you won't know to use them unless you determine your home's radon levels.

Infrared Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging helps spot any hidden leaks, whether it's an air leak or a water leak. These leaks are difficult to spot when they are under floors and inside walls, and by the time they are visible, significant damage has often already occurred. Infrared thermal imaging helps you get ahead of any potential leak problems and save money in the long run. Thermal imaging helps us to see a bit more during our inspection, and for us to go a bit deeper into our inspection besides what is just visible to the eye. It is a worthy investment in your home.
