WOW! I can't even make this story up. In this very crazy market (June 2021) it seemingly takes 2 week closing (sometimes with *0* days due diligence!) to purchase a home. Anyway, Frank came recommended by another very reputable inspector, and I was fortunate he came!! The home we were looking at for my mother was a 1975 build and within 1 hour of the inspector being there a FIRE from an electrical panel broke out! Frank contained the fire, and was SO calm, had his team address the matter, was in touch with the agent and homeowner. He said in over 20+ years of him inspecting homes nothing like this had ever happened. Anyway the inspection was VERY thorough and Frank handled all matters very professionally. We will be working with Frank and his team on any home inspections in the future. I highly recommend!

Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc. was referred to us by our realtor for our home inspection. Our inspector was Cary Cooper. He really took the time to answer all of our questions about his findings. We didn't feel rushed or that any question was too silly. He gave us peace of mind with a few of our concerns and was honest, even if we weren't to thrilled with the news. Overall, it was a great experience and we would definitely use (and refer)  Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc. in the future for any inspection needs.

My client used the company for their home inspection during their due diligence period. Jeremy and his partner were very kind and accommodating with answering questions. The report was very thorough and I like that they also note positive things about the homes in their report as well and not just what's wrong with the house. You can read the good and the bad.

Jeremy was the best to work with! He was on time,  very thorough in his explanations of his findings, and took time with my clients to make sure he answered all of their questions. He was detailed, and provided follow up when we needed additional questions answered. He went above and beyond! Best, quality, customer service I’ve seen in a long time! I’ll recommend him and Atlanta Property Inspections every time!

Frank Cooper and his team from Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc were excellent! They arrived on time  and thoroughly inspected all areas of the property I was considering renting. They found things that needed to be repaired by the landlord before we signed the lease. Frank reviewed his findings with us. He explained all of his concerns, and he patiently answered all of our questions. Then the next day I received a very detailed report that included several pictures and detailed explanations. If you want a kind, knowledgeable, and thorough inspector, don’t hesitate to call Frank Cooper with Atlanta Property. I would highly recommend him! Truly a 5 star company!

Atlanta Property Inspections came to do a pre-purchasing inspection on a home my husband and  I plan to buy! We had a very short due diligence period, but that was no issue for these guys. They fit us in their schedule on very short notice and were such a pleasure to work with. Cary and Riley came to do the inspection and did a fantastic job walking us through the inspection to let us know what they found, and suggestions on how to fix all of the issues! Shout out to Cary, for answering all of our questions and having such a great personality! We truly appreciate you guys taking the time to help us through such a very stressful time. We HIGHLY recommend this company!

The Hidden Dangers of Radon

In the environment, Radon is a tasteless, odorless, and colorless gas. It is a result of the decay of elements like uranium and radium. As these elements break down, they release Radon. As you may already remember, these elements are radioactive, naturally making Radon radioactive. And one thing you should know about radioactive elements and gases is that they are associated with significant health problems, the most prominent being cancer. Radon is shown to have a significant positive correlation with lung cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, smoking is the main risk factor for lung cancer, responsible for160,000 cancer deaths in the U.S.. However, lung cancer is also seen in people who do not smoke, and according to EPA, the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers is Radon. Additionally, it is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Each year, Radon is thought to cause 21,000 deaths from lung cancer.

How Does Radon Accumulate In Our Homes?

Being exposed to Radon outdoors isn't a big issue since it's in the environment and disappears in the enormousness of the atmosphere. However, it is a problem indoors. Especially nowadays, people are trying to make their houses air sealed to save energy, and this causes the Radon to be trapped and accumulate over time. You and your family have no choice but to inhale this toxic gas. Particularly in basements, radon gas can accumulate to very harmful levels, and chronic exposure to this gas can have detrimental effects.

Safe Levels Of Radon

So how will you know if your home has safe levels of Radon? Well, saying there's a certain safe dose for Radon would be wrong. The only way to ensure that you are completely safe, there shouldn't be any exposure to Radon at all, which is unrealistic because Radon is very widespread. However, if your home has 2-4 pCi/L, EPA advises to consider radon remediation. If the number is above 4, fixing your home is definitely suggested. If out of 1,000 people who never smoked were exposed to 4 pCi/L of Radon, about seven people could get lung cancer. Naturally, the probability increases with increasing levels of Radon.

So, if the radon gas is tasteless, odorless, and colorless, how will you know that your home has dangerous levels of Radon? You can't unless you call the professionals of a home inspection company for radon testing.

Additional Facts You Need To Know

Remember that every house has different radon levels, so the low radon levels in your neighbor's house doesn't mean that it will be the same for you. Additionally, know that just because you contacted a professional for a radon test 5 years ago doesn't mean the radon levels in your home are still the same. Nearly one of every 15 homes in the United States is estimated to have an elevated radon level.
