Americans spend most of their time indoors – at home, in school, at work. It is therefore vital that the typical indoor environment be a safe and non-toxic place, free from contaminants that could endanger the health and well-being of the people who live, study and work there.That why must need to be mold testing at their home and in schools.

What is Included in a Champia Phase I ESA?

At Champia Home Inspections Atlanta and Environmental Testing, our Phase I ESA includes a walk-through assessment (interior and exterior) of the property, a review of state and local regulatory databases, current and past use of the property and land around it, and recognized environmental conditions (REC), such as hazardous materials. Our inspectors will do the following:
  • Determine the property’s original use and history
We determine how the site and the land surrounding it have been used in the past to find out if it was used to store, treat, or dispose of hazardous materials. This is done through interviews as well as title information.

The Importance of Radon Testing

What if Elevated Radon Levels are Found?

If elevated radon testing levels are found in a home you are considering purchasing, the EPA recommends that you request that the seller mitigate (reduce) them. Experts agree that the minimum levels of radon in a home are about 1.2 pCi/L. You probably won’t be able to get them that low, but you definitely want them to be under 4 pCi/L.
