Columbus, Ohio Termite Inspections

Columbus, Ohio Termite Inspections

In Ohio, termite inspections are regulated and part of a Wood Destroying Insect (WDI) inspection. During a WDI inspection, licensed inspectors look for signs of activity of termites, carpenter ants, carpenter bees and powderpost beetles. WDI Inspectors must complete mandatory training, pass two exams and complete continuing education to obtain an Ohio WDI license. Often, a WDI inspection is required by your mortgage company before closing. Whether or not your mortgage company requires it, a WDI inspection can provide you with peace of mind.

Columbus, Ohio Radon Inspection and Radon Testing

Columbus, Ohio Radon Testing

According to the EPA, Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Overall, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Radon is responsible for about 21,000 lung cancer deaths every year.

Radon is a colorless, odorless radioactive gas found all over the United States. This gas comes from the natural decay of uranium that is found in nearly all soils. It moves up through the ground and can infiltrate your home through cracks and other joints in the foundation. If testing indicates elevated radon levels, there are several proven methods to reduce radon in your home.

Columbus, Ohio Pre listing Inspections

Columbus, Ohio Pre-Listing Inspections

Once you have an offer from a buyer, you have a limited time to correct any issues found during the home inspection. Knowing about problems that might require repair prior to listing will allow you more time to obtain quotes from multiple contractors. This will allow you to make the repairs in a more timely and economical manner. Correcting any concerns upfront may help the selling process proceed smoother and could result in better offers.

Columbus, Ohio Mold Inspection

Mold Inspection and Air Quality

We are trained and certified property inspectors specializing in mold inspection and testing. If you have experienced water damage such as a leak or a flood, or noticed an unpleasant musty odor, we can inspect your home. We will utilize a variety of techniques and technologies to identify the source and severity of the problem. Thermal imaging and moisture meters can identify hidden moisture problems which contribute to mold growth. Samples can be taken with swabs or tape-lift to positively identify the species of mold present.

Air samples can provide valuable information about the Indoor Air Quality. Mold spores are present everywhere and invisible to the naked eye. These spores are not usually a problem. However, active mold growing within the structure and an elevated indoor spore level may be an ill sign. Molds produce allergens and irritants which may trigger allergic hay-fever-type reactions in certain individuals. Air samples are taken both indoors and outdoors to determine if mold spore levels are elevated.

Columbus, Ohio Thermal Imaging Home Inspection

Thermal Imaging

X-ray vision? Not quite. Infrared cameras are not able to see through walls. However, they are able to detect and measure the surface temperature. Consequently, this provides information about what is happening behind the surface.

Thermal imaging, also known as thermography, is useful for finding hidden water leaks or moisture intrusion issues. For example: roof or siding leaks. As a result, you can stop the issue before staining or other damage is visually evident. Water or moisture will show up as a colder area. Afterwards, these areas can be further investigated with a moisture meter to verify.

Thermal Imaging can also be useful in assessing the thermal efficiency of a home. Hot and cold surface temperatures can be used to find air leaks. Likewise, this can help locate missing insulation or find out if doors and windows are inefficient.

Electrical or mechanical equipment problems can also be identified with a thermal camera. Excessive heat can be a sign that equipment is experiencing a problem that should be addressed before it progresses.

Extremely detailed Columbus, Ohio home inspection report!

Arthur was fantastic as an inspector. As a realtor and with a family member who is a part-time contractor we were truly impressed by his thoroughness. He found a number of issues that were actually not identified by a previous buyer's inspection just several weeks earlier that were MAJOR concerns - Water damage in the basement, attic and structural issues. We cannot thank Arthur enough for the job he did for us!

Thanks for the detailed Columbus OH home inspection report!

Positive: Punctuality, Responsiveness, Value

Art was very great to work with. He reviewed all parts of the home we purchased, took pictures and videos of what he found, used a thermal imaging device to look for water/heat leakage, and he walked us through every detail of what he was doing and what he found. He wrote a very detailed report afterward that was easily accessible through his website. He even offered suggestions of how to fix/improve certain areas of the home. He was nice, responsive, and very punctual. I would recommend Deep Dive Home Inspection for your inspection needs.

Highly recommended Columbus home inspector!

We had a fantastic experience with Art as our home inspector. As first time buyers, my husband and I had lots of questions and uncertainties which Art was happy to address. We walked with him on the inspection and he was transparent with his process and explanations. In his report, we appreciated the personalized comments he put next to all of the things he flagged, along with recommendations for how to remedy the issue. He was very punctual (we met him at the house right on time and he was already waiting for us), polite, and it was clear that he cares about his clients and their safety and happiness with their potential new home. He has also been available for follow up questions since we have had our inspection. We will be recommending him to anyone we can!

Art was very professional and quick to answer any questions I had. I called him early in the week to get a quote not knowing I was going to choose him as our inspection. He was easy to talk to over the phone and he wasn't in a rush to get my to sign up for an inspection. Whatever questions that needed answered he responded back in a timely manner. He took his time with our inspection and went through the details. I highly recommend Art.
