We are relocating from out of state and we were in need of an inspection with a very tight turn around. We received incredibly thorough reporting and an availability to answer questions quickly. Cary Cooper’s professional and expert insight saved us from a potential health hazard. I would very much recommend Atlanta Property Inspection for any of your 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.

Dustin was very knowledgeable and friendly and made my client feel confident in his explanations.  He was quick to point out the positives of the home he was inspecting.  His report was delivered within 18 hours of the inspection and had plenty of photos and very easy explanations in laymen's terms. I highly recommend Atlanta Property Inspections.

Thorough knowledge of items addressed in report. Home inspector was able to communicate any issues found with buyer and help explain the different items and their severity.

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!

I called several companies for quotes, and I felt that Atlanta Property Inspections was the most welcoming!  Thereafter, I had a wonderful experience at the inspection. My inspector was thorough, kind, and willing to explain things and answer my questions on site.  He was very knowledgeable and very friendly.  I am glad I did not skip the inspection for this 950 square foot condo, and the review has been very helpful, during my due diligence period in evaluating this potential home.

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 inspector was really thorough and was patient in explaining to me what he was observing. He showed me where the shutoff valve was for the water and gave recommendations on various things. The report that was provided made sense and pictures were taken of some things that were found. The inspector was also very personable which put me at ease about asking questions. Thank you, Alex and Atlanta Property Inspections!

I would like to recommend Brandon for his excellent job during the inspection. He is very professional, thorough and is an expert in his field. I enjoyed his partnership during inspection, the knowledge he shared of the risks of certain issues was incredible. I am very glad that he inspected the house for us and wishing him more success in future.

Dustin was absolutely amazing. He did such a thorough job and was super friendly and helpful in explaining everything to me as a first-time homeowner. Highly recommend this company! Very timely and professional throughout the entire process as well!

What Do Radon Levels Mean?

When radioactive elements like thorium, uranium, or radium start decaying in various parts of the earth, radon (a gas) will be produced. Unfortunately, by nature, radon is a radioactive gas and is found in the atmosphere at trace levels. Most of the time, radon isn’t very harmful outdoors, however, when it enters to various buildings like homes, workplaces, schools, and markets, it gets stuck, and when this happens, people inside are constantly exposed to radon. This situation is quite risky because, after smoking, radon is the second most common cause of lung cancer incidences and is predicted to be the cause of death for about 21,000 people in the United States every year. Unfortunately, radon is odorless and colorless, so many people don’t know that they are regularly exposed to radon. Regular testing is the only way to ensure you are exposed to radon.

How To Test Radon?

To test the radon levels in your house, you can either get a test kit from a store or hire professional home inspectors for radon testing. If you choose to do it on your own, you have two options: short-term kits and long-term kits. Usually, short-term kits take between 2-90 days, and long-term ones take longer. Naturally, a long-term kit will be more reliable.

Interpreting Your Results

More than 4.0 pCi/L

This level indicates your home is not a safe place to live in because the radon amount is very high. To treat this condition, you can hire a professional home inspection company to learn more about how to solve this problem.

2.7 to 4.0 pCi/L

This level isn’t as dangerous as the previous one we mentioned. However, it is still wise to receive professional advice and install a radon mitigation device. 

2.7 or less pCi/L

The amount of radon found in the everyday environment is about 0.4 pCi/L. So, this radon level usually poses no risks and is considered low.

Here are some of the ways you can make your home a safer place to live by minimizing radon exposure.

  • If members of your household are smoking, it will be a good idea to quit because radon, combined with the effects of smoke, will make your house a potential place for lung cancer.
  • Make sure there’s proper airflow inside your house. Frequently open windows and turn on ceiling fans.
  • If you have any openings in certain parts of your house, like walls, ceilings, or floor, fill them.
  • If you are buying a new house, ask about installed devices that protect from radon.
