Where Home Inspections In Rembert, SC Fall Short Finding Major Indoor Environmental Issues

Home inspectors are focused on identifying anything in the systems or parts of the home structure that will negatively affect the safety and value of the home. While very much a part of a house's ecosystem, air quality is not addressed in their scope of work. Their standards under the International Association of Home Inspector's code specifically excludes, in Section 2.2, them from assessing for mold, mildew, asbestos, "airborne hazards such as radon" and air quality in general. These assessments will fall to the Indoor Environmental Inspector/Professional. They will have the training and experience to determine if there are hazardous conditions in your indoor air quality.
