RADON TESTING

Radon is a cancer-causing radioactive gas that you cannot see, smell or taste. But it can still present you with a problem in your home. The Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, you’re at high risk for developing lung cancer. Some scientific studies of radon exposure indicate that children may be more sensitive to radon. This may be due to their higher respiration rate and their rapidly dividing cells, which may be more vulnerable to radiation damage.


Testing is the only way to know your home’s radon levels. There are no immediate symptoms that will alert you to the presence of radon. It typically takes years of exposure before any problems surface. The US EPA, Surgeon General, American Lung Association, American Medical Association, and the National Safety Council  recommend testing your home for radon because testing is the only way to know your home’s radon levels.


Radon is a national environmental health problem. Elevated radon levels have been discovered in every state. The US EPA estimates that as many as 8 million homes throughout the country have elevated levels of radon. Current state surveys show that 1 home in 15 has elevated radon levels.

DRUG RESIDUE TESTING

Aspire Property Inspections testing services can test your home tested for toxic chemicals, as it's possible that it may have been used in the past to manufacture drugs, drug ingredients or have just been used for drug use, all of which is a potential threat to your health! Toxic chemicals from illicit street drugs can make your family sick and your wallet cringe with cleanup costs starting at about $10,000.00. In the United States only 1 in 10 drug labs are ever discovered leaving future buyers at risk. Don't judge a book by its cover! Often times drug dealers and producers use homes in suburban and higher end areas to avoid suspicion of illegal activity. More than 50% of states have no disclosure laws regarding these types of hazardous conditions.  Schedule your testing today and get the peace of mind every homeowner should have when settling in.

Drugs residues our lab can look for:


Methamphetamine
Fentanyl 

Cocaine
Heroin 

THC
LSD and MDMA (in some cases)

Young couple bought Meth lab without knowing

It's important to be cautious when buying a new home. This couple  purchased a home, but during their planned  remodeling process they discovered suspicious signs that eventually led to Meth testing and a determination that the home had been used as a Meth lab. Because a Purchase and Sale agreements may not disclose honest information about prior drug history it is important to be aware of the signs of Meth lab contamination , and to follow up with additional home testing if necessary.

After the bust: Inside a Meth House Cleanup

 In early 2014, a report came out showing that Indiana led the country BY FAR in the number of meth busts per capita. We sent a documentary crew down to Kokomo, Indiana to see what it takes to clean up after a bust.
