Water Quality Tests
Homes with private water wells should be tested at least once every year. Private Wells are not regulated by the EPA, so it is the responsibility of the home owner to make sure their water is clean & safe. Some lenders may even require a water quality inspection as well in order to obtain financing.
Many private wells over time will contain very harmful bacterias’ that you don’t want being supplied to your home.
Lead-Based Paint Test
Lead paint tests should be considered for any home that was built before 1978, as many of these homes contained it.
Lead paint can be dangerous when it begins to deteriorate, crack, or peel. Lead is a toxic metal that can lead to a variety of health problems in humans, especially young children, and other at-risk groups.
