Guardian Inspection offers some additional tests to provide maximum information and protection.
Water Quality Testing
Clean drinking water is essential for good health. Water experts advise testing the water you drink regularly.
What is Water Quality Testing?
Water quality is determined by the amount of contaminants in your drinking water. Some contaminants are capable of causing a wide range of health problems. For this reason, it is very important to know the amount and kinds of contaminants that are in your everyday drinking and bathing water. If the levels of contaminants in your water are below EPA guidelines, the water is considered safe to drink. At Guardian Inspections, we perform Water Quality testing using InspectorLab Water Quality Test Kit. The test results will give you confidence to consume or to correct.
What do we test for?
Guardian Inspections uses InspectorLab Water Quality Test kits to check your water for:
- Total Alkalinity
- Total Chlorine
- Total Hardness
- PH (Acidity)
Where does your drinking water come from?
About half of our drinking water supply comes from surface water such as streams, rivers and lakes. The other half comes from water found underground. Both surface water and groundwater is used by 140,000 water utilities to supply water to 310 million people in the United States. More than one-third of Americans receive their drinking water from wells.
How do you know what your drinking?
To find out if water is safe to drink, you must test. The InspectorLab Water Quality Test service we provide is a complete and accurate instant water test available from Guardian Inspections.
This service can be added to your Standard Home Inspection for $135.
Basic Lead Testing
If your home was built before 1978, there is a good chance it has lead-based paint. In 1978, the federal government banned consumer uses of lead-containing paint, but some states banned it even earlier. Lead from paint, including lead-contaminated dust, is one of the most common causes of lead poisoning.
Guardian Inspections can perform a basic lead test in order to detect lead based paint.
This service can be added to your Standard Home Inspection for $75.
