Healthy Home

Concerned about potential health hazards in the house?

Consider a complete visual Healthy Home Inspection. This includes not just asbestos but other hazardous materials such as mold, dust mites, volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), toxic chemicals, electromagnetic radiation and pest issues.

Scope of Work

The purpose of this survey is primarily a visual inspection and investigative analysis to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, any suspected health
hazards, with mold in particular.

The inspection reports on:

  • moisture intrusion, water damage, musty odors
  • apparent mold growth and conditions conducive to mold growth
  • allergens
  • VOC’s
  • toxic chemicals
  • electromagnetic radiation
  • pest issues

A report will then be prepared to summarize the findings, provide a basic assessment of the risk and make recommendations for improvement. The report will also include photographs of each potential material hazard found.

Sampling and Testing

Additional work and expense may be required. Based on the initial findings, site sampling and laboratory testing may be needed to confirm suspected hazards. This may lead to further work to safely mitigate (manage or remove) the health hazards present.

Provincial Requirements

Work Safe BC requires the presence or absence of hazardous materials to be confirmed before any renovations or demolitions can occur.

Avoid Hidden Costs

Hazardous material issues can be a hidden cost. They can influence the value of a house significantly, especially if renovations are planned.

What does it cost?

A complete Healthy Home Inspection with a written report and photos costs  $390 for a typical single family home. Learn more about our environmental consulting services here.
