Our mold technicians are nationally certified and St. James Commercial Property Inspections only uses certified labs for sample analysis.

Radon Testing (Air & Water)

Radon is a hidden danger that cannot be detected without a test.  If there are excessive levels of Radon in your building/ business everyone is at risk of developing lung cancer in their life.  Radon is listed as the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, which makes high levels of this substance something you need to actively avoid. Radon can also be found in well water, private and community.  Hight levels of dissolved Radon are found in the ground water in some areas flowing through granite or granite sand and gravel formations. Our Nationally Certified Radon Inspectors can perform the necessary tests to determine your Radon levels.

Water Testing Commercial Inspection Services

Water Testing / Water Sampling

Water testing is essential regardless if it’s “City Water,” “Community Well,” or “Private Well”. While public water systems are mandated to test and treat their water, these tests only cover the water that has yet to leave the treatment plant. Poor water quality can cause several medical problems, to name a few: *Neurological Disorders, Abdominal Disease, Respiratory Disease, Cancer, and Cardiovascular Disease. Our inspectors will take the necessary samples and then overnight the samples to the lab for analysis.
