At Clarion Home Inspections we are more than just another home inspection company. We are trained professionals dedicated to providing a complete range of home inspection services, including Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) assessment and Mold & Mildew Inspections. We can help you discover if you have potential health risks in your home and provide you with recommendations to solve the problem.

Modern homes are an interaction of various systems working together and, when things go wrong, it can often lead to air quality issues that can be unhealthy, especially for certain people (old, young, sick, pregnant, etc.). Approximately 20 -30 % of the homes I inspect l have problems with the indoor living environment, most often involving excessive moisture and some kind of fungal growth. Many times, homeowners are unaware they have a problem until I point it out to them, although, quite often, they are not suprised, and say something like, "well.. I guess that helps explain why I've been feeling so lousy!"

The only way to be conclusive about the levels of mold in an indoor environment is to test for it. Usually, the types of problems found are inexpensive and easy to fix, once discovered. It can be something as simple as installing a fan in a bathroom ceiling.

Give us a call if you have concerns about your living environment. My company provides complete IAQ inspections and testing that will provide you with the answers you need.

Is Your Home a Radon Risk

Dangerous levels of radon have been detected in homes in all regions of the country; in some parts of Southern B.C., as many as 10 % of the homes tested have unsafe amounts of radon gas. In some confined spaces – like basements and crawlspaces– radon can accumulate to relatively high levels and become a health hazard. Clarion Home Inspections recommends that all home purchases should include a radon test before the home is occuppied.

How Safe Are Your Appliances

If you're like most people, you probably have heard something about the recent safety recalls involving some of the big car manufacturers, but you may not be aware that the makers of the appliances in your home have had similar troubles, only on a far greater scale. We all like to think of the appliances in our homes as being safe, but, the fact is, there have been over 20 million product recalls in North America in the past twenty years.

Our Infrared Cameras show you the difference

It involves using sensitive cameras to detect differences in the surface temperatures of the various components of a home. An infrared camera is a tool that helps us “see” many problems that were often missed during home inspections in the past. At Clarion Home Inspections, we use infrared cameras in all our home inspections – at no extra cost to you.

As a professional home inspector, I understand that my clients are depending on the information I provide them; I take that responsibility very seriously.
