What is a Home Inspection?

A home inspection is a non-invasive examination of a home and its condition. Typically, inspections are done in association with the sale or purchase of a home. An inspection should be conducted by a professional home inspector who has training and certifications to perform such inspections. During the inspection the home inspector will evaluate if the home’s systems are in working condition, if the home’s visible structure is in good repair, and will assess many other factors related to the integrity and safety of the home. The home inspection can take several hours depending on the size of the home. Upon completion of the inspection the inspector will compose a detailed report of the findings that can be provided to the client.


Radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in homes all over the United States. It comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Radon can also enter your home through well water. Your home can trap radon inside.

Any home can have a radon problem. This means new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements. In fact, you and your family are most likely to get your greatest radiation exposure at home. That is where you spend most of your time.

Nearly one out of every 15 homes in the United States is estimated to have an elevated radon level (4pCi/L or more). Elevated levels of radon gas have been found in homes in your state. Contact your state radon office for more information about radon in your area.
