Additional Services

While home inspections cover your home’s general systems and structures, there are other specialized inspections you might want to invest in. Because we pride ourselves in being a convenient full-service inspection company, you can set up further inspections and services, taking the stress out of having to seek out multiple vendors. We can set up services like radon testing, pests, and mold inspections, and more, as needed through Farris Home Inspections.  

Radon Testing

Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. This gas is radioactive and comes from the breakdown of uranium in the soil, rock, and water. Over time, the gas seeps from the ground and can accumulate in the lowest level of a home. Nearly 1 in every 15 homes is estimated to have an elevated level. If high levels are detected, you can take steps to implement a radon mitigation system.  EPA Radon Information

Pest Inspection

Pest Inspection

Our pest inspections are a visual, non-invasive examination for Wood Destroying/Termite Inspection. These pests can cause structural damage to your property and may be a health hazard. Our third-party vendor will look for signs of past or current Wood Destroying Insect infestation such as boring holes, shelter tubes, insect excrement, etc. Inspectors will not look within walls, floors, ceiling covers, insulation, furniture, etc.

Septic Inspection

During a full septic inspection, our third-party certified vendor will open up the cover of the tank to check the level and that the water is flowing from the house as it should. If any water flows back into the tank from the drain field, this will indicate a problem. These tests will ensure there aren’t any blockages in the system and that each stage in the process is working as it should, avoiding any future costly repairs.

Well Inspection

Well Inspection

During a well inspection, our third-party vendor will look at your well components like pumps and pressure tanks and look for leakage, water quality, and water pressure. In addition to checking the condition of the equipment well inspectors will test the safety of your water supply by collecting water samples and sending them to a certified lab to be tested. The lab will test for bacteria, nitrates, and other contaminants.

Mold Inspection

Mold Inspection

For your convenience, we have a few home inspectors on staff who can complete mold inspections. This comprehensive investigation will look for any possible areas of mold or conditions that could lead to mold growth in the future. If a suspicious area is found, we will take a swab and send it to a lab to be tested. We also take air quality samples to determine if mold is being breathed in by occupants. EPA Mold Information

Water Quality Test

Water Quality Testing

Should you need it, we also offer water quality testing. Water quality testing checks your future home’s water supply for contaminants and pollutants such as chlorine, lead, E.coli, etc. This kind of testing can also reveal pH imbalances and water hardness.

Chimney Inspection

There are approximately 20,000 chimney fires in the U.S. each year. Chimney fires can be caused by creosote, a flammable substance that sticks to the chimney walls over time, or debris that can get lodged inside. Chimney inspections also lower the risk of carbon monoxide in your home and can extend the life of your chimney overall. Our inspectors look at most parts of the chimney. With a specialized inspection, a chimney contractor will also analyze the chimney lining.
