What you need to know about
Environmental Hazards:

My job as your professional home inspector is to alert you, to the extent possible, to unknown problems and potential environmental hazards in your current or potential house.

I conduct a non-invasive visual inspection of your property. While I may be able to alert you to possible problems, my basic inspections are no substitutes for specialized contaminant testing.    

If during the home inspection I see signs of suspected hazards, I will inform the client to seek further expert review and professional lab analysis.



Asbestos is a mineral fiber that has been used commonly in a variety of building construction materials for insulation and as a fire-retardant. Inhaling microscopic asbestos fibers can cause significant health problems including lung cancer.
Most of today’s products do not contain asbestos. If asbestos material is more than slightly damaged or you plan changes that might disturb it, you require a professional for repair and removal.


Lead is a highly toxic metal used for many years in products in and around homes. Lead’s adverse health effects range from behavioral problems and learning disabilities to seizures and death.
Homes built before 1986 are more likely to have lead pipes, joints, and solder. New homes are also at risk: even legally “lead-free” pipes can contain up to 8 percent lead and leave significant amounts of lead in the water for the first several months after installation.


Mold may begin growing indoors when mold spores land on surfaces that are wet. Molds produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances.
Too much exposure to mold may cause conditions such as asthma, hay fever, or other allergies. Fevers and breathing problems in a vulnerable individual are possible but unusual. When moldy material becomes damaged or disturbed, spores, which are reproductive bodies similar to seeds, can be released into the air. Exposure can occur if people inhale the spores, directly handle moldy material, or accidentally ingest the spores. Since all molds need water to grow, mold can grow almost anywhere where there is high humidity, dampness, or water damage.


Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas found in soils, rock, and water throughout the U.S. Radon causes lung cancer, and is a threat to health because it tends to collect in homes, sometimes to very high concentrations.
It cannot be detected by the senses and can be confirmed only by sophisticated instruments and laboratory tests. The gas enters a house through pores and cracks in the concrete or through floorboards of poorly ventilated crawlspaces, especially when wet ground allows the gas to escape easily through the soil and disperse in the atmosphere.


Wood destroying insects and organisms such as termites, wood-boring beetle larvae, wood wasps & horntails, and carpenter ants are a concern in any home with a wooden structure or components. Failure to properly identify and deal with the presence of wood destroying insects can lead to damage to the wooden components of the house resulting in an unsafe structure requiring the need for expensive repairs.
