Alpha-1 Inspection Services endeavors to perform all inspections in substantial compliance with the Standards of Practice of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI). As such, we inspect the readily accessible, visually observable, installed systems and components of a home as designated in the InterNACHI Standards of Practice


Your report contains observations of those systems and components that, in the professional judgment of the inspector, are not functioning properly, significantly deficient, unsafe, or are near the end of their service lives. If the cause for the deficiency is not readily apparent, the suspected cause or reason why the system or component is at or near the end of expected service life is reported, and recommendations for correction or monitoring are made as appropriate.

Mycotoxin Testing

Mycotoxins are airborne poisons that are produced by mold/ fungus. For years, the government's concern has been to keep these deadly fungi/mold out of the general public's food supply. However, a new source of mycotoxins has arisen. Water-damaged indoor environments have been documented to produce the same diseases, leading to serious health effects.
