Add Radon test
The EPA considers radon to be the leading cause of lung cancer in non smokers. Radon is a colorless, odorless, naturally occurring, radioactive gas given off by decaying radioactive material in the earth. Using certified testing equipment and procedures are the only way to know for sure what the levels of radon are in the building. The EPA recommends remedial action at 4.0 picocuries per liter of air or higher. The radon test needs to run for a minimum of 48 hours. The equipment will have to be picked up after 48 hours.
Add Wood destroying insect inspection
Any structure can be damaged by wood destroying insects. The National Pest Management Association form 33 (NPMA33) is the standard form HUD uses to document the signs or presence of wood destroying insects and recommend treatment. If any evidence of termites, carpenter ants, carpenter bees or powder post beetles are found during the inspection, it can be documented in the NPMA33 to request treatment for active insects or repairs to insect damaged wood.
Add Water test
If the home is on a private water supply (well), you may consider testing the water supply for common impurities. The well water test analyzes and reports on Coliform and Ecoli bacteria, nitrates, nitrites, pH, color, iron, manganese, sodium, turbidity, total dissolved solids, hardness and chloride.
Add Radon in water test
Radon concentration in wall water may contribute to radon quantity in the air of the home, which cannot be mitigated by a radon in air mitigation system. The MA DEP recommends remediating radon in well water when quantities exceed 10,000 picocuries per liter of air. At this concentration, the radon in the air concentration is elevated by about 1 picocurie per liter of air.
