Termite Inspections

Wood destroying insects and other organisms can cause serious problems in the wood structural components of a house and may go undetected for a long period of time. A termite inspection is included in all our home inspection packages, saving you money and time in one appointment.
MASH Home Inspections LLC starts with a full termite inspection which includes visual and probing methods. We will look for termite mud tubes, tunnels, and wings on window ledges, door frames, and in boiler rooms. Termite damaged wood beams, joists, and wood support columns in your basement and garage are also inspected.

Septic Inspections

The purpose of a septic dye test is to determine leaks or inadequacies in the septic system, thus indicating the need for repairs or alterations. A strong but non-toxic and non-staining dye is introduced into the system, typically through a toilet or sink. As water is run through the system, the dye will create a visible trace of any possible seepage or discharge from the septic system to the surface. The dye also determines if the septic system can handle the volume of waste that is currently being put through it.

Radon Testing

Radon is a cancer-causing natural radioactive gas that you can't see, smell or taste. Its presence in your home can pose a danger to your family's health. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and the second leading cause of lung cancer in America. The U.S. Surgeon General and EPA recommend that all homes be tested for the presence of radon. Mash Home Inspections is a qualified radon testing service, having completed the Radon Measurement Operator Proficiency course. We use electronic measuring devices that are placed in the lowest level of the residence for a period of 48 hours, with the results available at the end of the test.

Pool/Spa Inspections

A beautiful-looking pool should not fool you into thinking everything is okay. You need to have piece of mind knowing, for instance, that the pool is properly plumbed, that all equipment, skimmers, lights are working properly, and that GFCIs are properly installed. You need to avoid being caught off guard if costly repairs are needed. A pool inspection is money and time well spent.
What is included in a pool or spa inspection? The condition of all accessible components of the pool, equipment and surrounding environment are evaluated, including a safety checkup of the pool and pool area. We note the condition of the pool walls, coping, stairs, skimmers, diving board, ladders, filter and multiport valve, pump and motor, chlorinator, heater, automatic cleaner, underwater lights, time clock, valves, fencing, decks, winter cover and spa if applicable.

Drinking water may contain several contaminants, some of which are hazardous, and some are not. Public water supplies are tested by the utility, and must meet stringent EPA standards. Nevertheless, even when the public water supply is safe, problems can originate in the distribution system.
