Do we inspect for Pests, Mold, Asbestos, Lead?
The NYS Standards of Practice state Inspectors shall not be required to determine the presence or absence of any suspected environmental hazards, including hazardous substances, organic compounds, PCB’s, asbestos, urea formaldehyde insulation, toxins, carcinogens, diseases, wood destroying organisms, mold, lead paint, air quality or any other potential environmental hazards. However, The Inspection Report will include visual observations as indicated below with referral to an appropriate licensed professional:
- Pest Inspection: We will report observations of rodent droppings, animal holes along foundations or under porches, carpenter ant or roach sightings, insect damage to wood components, carpenter bee or woodpecker holes, active wasp nests, and the like.
- Mold: We will report conditions observed that may be conducive to mold growth, and staining, spotting or discolorations that are suspect and should or could be examined further by a mold professional.
- Asbestos: Asbestos is present in many products but is of most concern if it becomes “friable”. Asbestos suspected material that is friable will be reported, with referral to a licensed professional for guidance.
- Lead: Testing for lead in paint and water must be done at a laboratory. Lead was banned in paint in NY in 1978, and from plumbing solder in 1986. Many older inner city homes still have a lead main water line and homes with copper plumbing built before 1986 may have lead soldered fittings. Peeling paint, especially in older homes where lead paint may still be present will be commented on. These observations will be included in the Inspection Report with the recommendation to consult with appropriate water quality professionals or the Department of Health for options.
