Central Florida Water Quality Testing
We offer water testing & well inspections for drinking water & well water in the Central Florida and Orlando areas. The EPA suggests homes with well water should be tested annually for bacteria & chemical contamination.
If you are buying a home with a well, we recommend having a water quality sample collected. If you are using a FHA, VA or USDA loan, underwriting requirements necessitate a water quality sample to be collected and analyzed by an approved inspector. We will send it in to a Certified Florida water testing laboratory for analysis. The results will typically be available within a week but could be quicker depending on the type of water analysis.
The following test packages are performed on the water samples:
Nitrates/Bacteria (minimum EPA annual suggestion) Nitrates, Total Coliform (bacteria) & E. Coli (bacteria)
FHA / VA / USDA Required Water Test Nitrates, Nitrites, Total Coliform (bacteria), E. Coli (bacteria) & Lead
Additional Compounds and Chemicals* Numerous categories of water testing available including Alkalinity, Arsenic, Iron, Sulfur, Turbidity, PH (acidity), Clarity, Chlorine, Color, Copper, Hardness (Calcium), Sodium and more!
Additional testing for specific chemicals, minerals, toxins, radon & pesticides are available. Please contact us today for information & pricing on other substances. FHA water testing requirements available.
Central Florida Home Allergen Testing
This is a specialized type of test that will detect high levels of commonly known allergens. Many times when clients have breathing issues or respiratory problems, they have us perform a mold test. If this comes back at normal levels the next test recommended is an allergen test. The procedure will detect unusual levels of dust mites, cat dander, dog dander, cockroach parts, mouse & rat.
These all can cause any number of symptoms such as:
- Eye irritation
- Flu-like symptoms
- Tight chest
Allergen test can be performed for the following types of allergens: Dog, Cat, Dust mites, Cockroach, Latex, Rat and Mouse.
Central Florida Thermal Imaging Inspections
Thermal imaging is a non-invasive, non-destructive way of evaluating conditions below the surface. Because everything from faulty wiring to the presence of termites to mold to wet insulation affects the surrounding temperature, heat-sensitive photography can reveal these and other issues that just cannot be seen by the naked eye or with conventional or digital photography. We can provide thermal imaging reports where we document the hidden fault for corrective action or to prioritize repairs.
These cameras are useful for energy audits because you can see exactly where cold air is entering the home or heat is being lost, along with energy dollars. The thermal imaging camera inspection can document dangerous electrical hot spots or the presence of moisture which can lead to harmful mold.
Thermal photography will deliver more thorough and in-depth inspections due to the fact we are able to view what can't be seen with the naked eye.
