Environmental inspections: Radon and mold
AmeriSpec Omaha and Lincoln offers additional inspection services to address a number of environmental issues. Please contact us for scheduling details and prices.
Nebraska ranks as one of the highest states in the nation for average radon content. AmeriSpec recommends that your home be tested for the presence of radon before purchasing.
This inspection includes the placement of testing devices to measure the ongoing level of radon in the habitable areas of the home. These measurements evaluate the level of radon to determine if any form of improvement is required.
The EPA document Home Buyer’s and Seller’s Guide To Radon provides the basic information everyone should know about radon.

Mold testing determines whether harmful mold is present in a home. Exposure to bacteria and fungus in indoor air has emerged as a significant health problem in residential environments as well as in occupational settings.
The health-related problems associated with exposure to mold range from allergic reactions to respiratory tract inflammation and infection. Some molds can be extremely dangerous, such as legionella, which is the cause of Legionnaires Disease.
