Indoor Air Quality Testing
Air quality in a home is very important for personal health and comfort. Stagnant, dirty air can cause unpleasant odors. Excess humidity and moisture problems can cause mold growth, allergens, and other problems for those with respiratory issues such as asthma.
Nu Level Inspections works with EMSL Canada, and Prism Analytical Technologies to provide Indoor Air Quality Testing for your home or business. An IAQ home survey is an accurate and cost effective tool for use in determining airborne VOCs, (Volatile Organic Compounds) and active growing mold (MVOCs) in home air. With a single sample, we can report the indoor air quality via the total levels of VOCs and MVOCs. Testing services start at $300-$500 when added to any property inspection. Reports are emailed to you within 3-10 business days along with any recommendations for repairs or remediation’s.
The result is a cost effective and easy to understand report that provides the information required to develop an actionable plan for improving indoor air quality.
What Is a Sewer Scope?
A sewer scope is a video inspection of the lateral sewer line from the house, to the city sewer main or septic tank if on an acreage.
Pre-purchase Sewer Line Inspections
Any problems or repairs regarding the sewer line on private property, are the responsibility on the property owner. Sewer line repairs and replacements can be very expensive. You want to be aware of any issues before signing a purchase agreement. A pre-purchase inspection will help you gain valuable insight into the condition of the sewer line system. This important information will help you to make an informed decision in your real estate purchase.
Older homes certainly have an increased likelihood of sewer line issues, but even new homes can have problems. A properly functioning sewer line may have defects that do not currently affect the performance of the system. However, these problems may cause a future sewer backup, leading to an emergency line repair or replacement. Common issues include: Cracks or Fractures, Offset Pipe Joints, Sags in the line, Collapsed Line, Tree Root Intrusion, Blockages
We Can Help
Nu Level Inspections is trained in sewer inspections through the National Association of Sewer Service Companies (NASSCO). A non-profit organization committed to setting industry standards for the assessment, maintenance and rehabilitation of underground infrastructure. Having a sewer line video inspection prior to purchasing a property is a proactive way to protect your investment. When the inspection is complete, you will be informed of the condition of the line and be given a USB stick containing the video of the inspection.
Broken Clay Pipe
Thermal Imaging technology is essential to ensuring a complete property inspection. It can provide valuable insight and reveal problems not visible with the naked eye. Identifying insulation problems, plumbing leaks, water ingress, framing issues and electrical hot spots are some of the advantages of this technology. This is why we include it with every inspection we do, at no additional cost.
Apartment Inspections Starting at $300
Industry standard fees are typically between $400-$500. More accurately, our prices are based on the size of the home. Larger homes cost more to inspect than smaller ones. Mold, formaldehyde, VOC and Radon testing are additional services which can be added to any property inspection type (as per the chart in the pricing section).
A PDF version of the inspection report will be sent to your email within 24 hours, but typically the same day. All photos are included in the report. IAQ Testing reports take longer. Turn around time for mold samples are 3 business days. A full IAQ assessment is 8-10 business days to receive the report, as test samples are sent to a laboratory in the United States for analysis
It is always recommend that the client attends the inspection whenever possible. You can follow us around and ask questions as we go, or ask questions at the end of the inspection, during the verbal summary….your choice. We realize that it’s not always possible to attend, but seeing any important issues in person, will help clarify the findings in the report.
A standard Home Inspection will take between two and three hours. Larger houses or properties in poor condition may take longer, whereas townhouses and apartments take less time to complete. If Air Quality Testing is being done, this will add approximately 30 minutes to the inspection time.
We accept several convenient payment methods: Visa, MasterCard, Debit, Cheque, Cash, and E-Transfer.
We cover all of Calgary and the surrounding areas:
Calgary, Airdrie, Crossfield, Okotoks, High River, Chestermere, Strathmore, Cochrane, Canmore.
As per Government of Alberta regulations, cost estimates for any repairs/replacement pertaining to the inspected property can not be provided.
Yes. The fact of the matter is that there are many moving parts and people that go into building a new home and despite best intentions by the builder, things do get missed. Especially considering new homes are more susceptible to condensation and moisture issues given new standards for “air tight” building envelopes. It doesn’t hurt to have a trained pair of eyes working on your behalf before you sign off on the build.
