S.A.F.E. Inspection Services can collect samples of water from properties to assist in discovering if the water is safe for human use and consumption.
Our inspectors use industry standard protocols for the collection, storage and transportation to the testing lab of these samples.
The water samples we collect are taken to a local water testing lab and reports are e-mailed upon completion. Typically, results are available within 2-7 business days after the sample arrives at the lab.
The most commonly requested testing is as follows:
1. You and your family are most likely to get your greatest exposure to radon at home.
2. The only way to know the radon level in your home is to test.
3. Testing is easy and inexpensive.
S.A.F.E. Inspection Services and our inspectors are currently certified by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection to perform radon testing services in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. S.A.F.E. Inspection Services uses continuous radon monitors to conduct hundreds of radon tests at properties for homeowners and potential homeowners every year.
After the continuous radon monitor is placed by the inspector, it will extract an air sample every hour during the testing process and the average the result at the conclusion of the test. Short term tests are typically placed for 2 – 7 days to provide quick screening results. Closed house conditions must be maintained during these tests. The EPA guideline for radon is to maintain the levels below 4.0 pCi/L.
Radon levels can be reduced by installing radon mitigation systems which commonly consist of plastic pipes and a fan to vent the radon gas to the outside. S.A.F.E. Inspection Services does not install radon mitigation systems so therefore you can be assured that your radon test would be completely unbiased.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: PA law requires anyone (except the owner/occupant of the building) performing radon testing, mitigation or laboratory analysis be certified with the Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP). To check certification of providers, click HERE.
Mold spores can cause a variety of minor to serious health conditions. Using a biopump and air-o-cell cassettes as well as high-quality sample slides, S.A.F.E. Inspection Services offers mold evaluations, spot testing and air sampling to put your mind at ease.
Turnaround times for results can be as soon as 24 hours from the time the samples are taken and reports are e-mailed as soon as we receive them from the lab. Additionally, if you have any questions we can’t answer, the technician who processed your samples can speak to you directly via telephone.
