$100- When buying or selling a home in Iowa, should you request a radon test? Precisely, what is radon? Radon is an odorless and tasteless radioactive gas produced from the decomposition of naturally occurring uranium in the soil. Radon is identified as the primary cause of lung cancer among nonsmokers and the second-leading cause of lung cancer in smokers. Did you know that according to US EPA Radon surveys conducted in Iowa found 7 in 10 homes contain radon concentrations above the US EPA’s radon action level of 4 pCi/L? Iowa leads the nation in the percentage of homes over 4 pCi/L and the percentage of homes over 20 pCi/L. Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon.

$155- Indoor air quality testing, do you need it? What is it? Indoor air quality testing helps find the cause of symptoms people are experiencing in the home or office. Poor air quality has a wide range of effects. Testing during your home inspection process can help minimize them by allowing you to take action on specific issues. According to the EPA, the average American spends around 80-90% of their life in their homes (indoors). As certified inspectors of indoor air quality, we use a unique sampling cassette designed for quick collection and quantitative analysis of a variety of airborne aerosols to gather both viable and non-viable particulates, such as mold spores, pollen, insect parts, dust mite parts, skin cell fragments, plant fragments, dust, fibers, combustion emissions, etc. Testing determines if the air quality in your home is risky or safe. With an average data turnaround time of 24 to 48 hours, the Air-O-Cell cassettes are submitted to the lab on the same day as your inspection. Spotlight Home Inspection Services strives to provide all of your home inspection needs with ease.
