Our home inspections objectively assess systems and components within a home and highlight any potential problems. Buying a home is often the largest single investment that a person will ever make. We strive to help clients avoid any dangers or surprises throughout the process. It is crucial to us that we thoroughly relay the findings to the client, having them fully understand the investment they are making and ensure their home is safe.
AJF Home Inspections utilizes all the latest tools to provide our clients with the best information available. Thermography can clearly show us what the naked eye can not. Infrared is a very powerful tool. It helps us identify, quantify and communicate today what could be a much bigger issue to our clients tomorrow!
Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US and the EPA estimates that unsafe levels of radon are present in 1 out of every 5 American households. Screening for Radon can be a matter of life and death for families buying new homes. AJF Home Inspections has been certified to properly measure radon and to effectively use the tools to detect it. Ultimately this protects our clients and their families from this elusive killer.
Meth residue can be dangerous! It’s also odorless and presents without any visual signs. As such, neglecting to test puts yourself and others at undue risk. AJF Home Inspections has been trained to properly test for meth. Having a meth test with your home inspection avoids any unpleasant surprises in the future. It’s better to know now before putting yourself or others at risk.
Mold grows and it can grow fast in the right conditions. It is most often detected in cellulose-rich building materials from damp or water-damaged building conditions. This can compromise the buildings integrity. Mold can also be a health risk. Because mold can hide behind walls, in the ceiling and under the floors, it’s impossible to know just by looking that a home doesn’t have mold. If you suspect mold or you want to rule it out as a problem, then it’s a good idea to test for mold and tackle the problem before you close on the home.
At AJF Home Inspections we pride ourselves on honesty, excellent customer service, good communication and an eye for detail. We also make every effort to present our reports within 24 hours.
