Wood Destroying Organisms/Insects (WDO/WDI) such as termites, ants, dry rot, and other destructive organisms can cause significant structural damage in a home, as well as expose residents to health issues. Professional WDO/WDI Pest Inspection can check the home for current and past issues, as well as potential risk factors. Your certified WIN Home Inspector can also provide the forms needed for an FHA/VA loan.
Radon is an odorless, colorless, and naturally occurring radioactive gas that can cause serious health issues over time. It is the #1 cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, and is only detectable through testing. A trained WIN professional uses state-of-the-art equipment to check radon levels in the home, which can be mitigated once identified.
Homes that rely on private wells are at risk of radon exposure from elevated levels of radon in groundwater. Radon-in-water testing check drinking water for health and safety, in partnership with accredited laboratories.
Professional pool and spa inspection by WIN provides a detailed report on the current condition of the pool and checks for safety issues, including for pool interior, pool lighting, tile and deck, and pool equipment such as pumps, filter, heater, and other accessories. This helps home buyers and owners address issues early before they become larger expenses.
Problems with the septic tank can lead to sewage backup, structural damage, and health issues. In a standard septic inspection by your WIN Home Inspector, all the visible components of the septic system are examined and a dye test is performed to check for leaks.
Well flow testing (also known as 'well pump performance') by a trained WIN Home Inspector checks for needed repairs or adjustments to a home’s water flow. During the test, the inspector will determine the rate at which the home well is able to supply a steady flow of water and simulate normal water usage to help identify any issues.
Water contaminants such as bacteria and nitrates can cause serious health issues and even structural damage to the home water system. WIN Home Inspection professionals partner with accredited laboratories to test the water quality in the home and protect home and health.

Some potential issues in the home, such as missing insulation or overloaded electrical circuits are not visible to the naked eye. Infrared (IR) thermography allows WIN Home Inspectors to help identify otherwise hidden issues using innovative technology. Once identified, these issues can be proactively addressed, which can result in lower energy bills and a safer home.
Mold growth in the home can cause serious structural damage and pose a threat to human health. Trained WIN Home Inspectors check for hidden mold growth using specialized equipment to collect air samples, and can also provide mold surface sample testing for visible mold issues. We partner with accredited laboratories to provide professional and fast test results to home owners, buyers, and sellers.
Asbestos is a mineral fiber that was commonly used in building materials prior to the 1980s.
