Radon is worth investigating and is a concern in many states. Some very serious medical complications, including lung cancer, have been attributed to its presence in the air in homes or enclosed spaces.

Average radon levels in the state of Montana are of concern.  MT measures an average of 7.4 pCi/L.  If you test your home and obtain a result of  4.0 pCi/L or above then mitigation measures are strongly recommended.

At Inspect Montana we take your concerns about radon seriously.  We use state-of-the-art equipment to determine if this is an issue in the home being tested.  The Sun Nuclear 1028xp radon monitor utilizes blue tooth technology and comes equipped with integrated tamper sensors as it sits upon a tripod mount.  Combined with the OneRadon app with cloud support means the test results are available in real-time.

We set our monitors to takes samples once per hour typically over a 48 hour period.  Upon completion of the test Inspect Montana can pull the data, create the test report, and upload the report directly into your property inspection report at the end of the 48 hr test.  All are accessible online either via desktop or your mobile device.

We perform all environmental testing by EPA guidelines for the most accurate results possible. Have more questions? Give us a call or email.

It is recommended by the State of Montana to test your water at least once per year.  This is also beneficial to do whenever buying or selling a home.  To learn more visit the DEQ Website.

There are 3 types of molds:

1) Allergenic which produces allergies and allergic reactions such as asthma.

2) Pathogenic which causes health issues in those suffering acute illness.

3) Toxigenic produces toxic substances that lead to dangerous and deadly health issues.

Though a lot of molds will be obvious upon a visual inspection, not all are. Mold can hide behind and inside walls. Your Inspector is equipped to test for mold if he or she detects its presence.

Inspect Montana uses a 5-minute mold test.  This test will identify if the mold is Aspergillus/Penicillium OR Stachybotrys.  This test will detect their presence but not by species or quantitative amounts.

If desired, a sample can also be sent to the qualified lab for analysis to identify the species and quantities (takes 5 – 7 days for results).

Once mold has been identified, Inspect Montana will refer our customers to a qualified mold remediation company.

With the remediation work completed Inspect Montana can perform follow-up testing using air samples.  A control air sample will be taken outside the property as a point of reference.  Then another sample will be taken in the area where the mold was discovered.  These air cassettes will also be sent to a qualified lab.

For more information regarding mold check out the EPA website.

When considering the purchase or sale of an older home it is a good idea to scope the sewer to see if there are any issues.  A sewer scope can find breaks in the sewer pipe as well as roots or blockages.  The sewer scope can even identify the type of material that the sewer is made of.

A sewer scope is a video inspection of the lateral sewer line from the house at or near the foundation to the city, HOA tap, or the septic tank.

What you will see in your report:

Inspect Montana offers two additional services to a sewer scope service:

  1. Sewer location services.
  2. Additional building services.

At Inspect Montana we take advantage of the best technology available during an inspection.

Thermal imaging is a technology that allows the InterNACHI-CCPIA INSPECTOR to show you things about a building that no one can show you using other inspection methods.

Thermal imaging produces images of invisible heat energy emitted from objects and systems in the building and allows us to measure it.

Thermal imaging helps to diagnose the problem rather than merely identify symptoms, and can sometimes, but not always, identify and document:

  • electrical faults before they cause a fire;
  • overloaded and undersized circuits;
  • circuit breakers in need of immediate replacement;
  • missing, damaged, and/or wet insulation;
  • heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows, and doors;
  • water and moisture intrusion that could lead to mold;
  • possible pest infestation;
  • hidden roof leaks before they cause serious damage; air-conditioner compressor leaks;
  • under-fastening and/or missing framing members; structural defects;
  • broken seals in double-pane windows;
  • energy loss and efficiency;
  • dangerous flue leaks;
  • damaged and/or malfunctioning radiant heating systems;
  • unknown plumbing leaks; and overheated equipment.

These color images can then be included in the inspection report, providing supporting documentation to the report.  A picture is worth a thousand words.
