Hazards In Your Home

hazards in home

Many materials used in older home construction in Massachusetts contained potentially hazardous substances such as asbestos, lead, Urea-formaldehyde foam insulation and other potentially hazardous materials. These and environmental issues such as mold, radon gas, and water pollutants, can not typically be fully identified and/or categorized by a visual home inspection. Therefore, they are not part of my Standard Home Inspection.

I will always attempt to point out visible substances that may be considered dangerous to you or your family's health, but unless otherwise stated in your home inspection report, the existence of hazardous materials, which may or may not be present on the property, was not observed by Massachusetts Home Inspections.

Your home inspection report will state if such materials were observed and I will identify the exact location on your inspection report, but I can not confirm said substances since laboratory testing and, in many cases, experts or appropriate licensing in the State of Massachusetts is necessary to detect the presence of such substances. If you have any concerns about whether hazardous materials might exist in your home, please consult with an appropriate industrial hygienist, hazardous materials specialist, or other qualified expert.

If you are unable to locate the appropriate laboratory to test hazardous looking materials for you, I can highly recommend an excellent laboratory located in Woburn, Massachusetts. This lab has tested numerous materials for my past clients and they have received their results promptly on-site.

Hi Dave,

I am writing to let you know how my home inspection went today in Tyngsboro. The inspection went well and we look forward in moving forward in purchasing our new home. What I am really writing about is to tell you how pleased I was with your work. You were very thorough and took your time on the inspection. As first time home buyers, you took some extra time to explain things that you didn't have to and it really was invaluable!

I have several friends and family members that are also getting ready to purchase homes, and I look forward to sharing my experience with your company with them. I will certainly be recommending Massachusetts Home Inspections and will speak highly of you and also share how pleased I was with the output of the inspection.

Best regards,

Crystal F.
