Sewer Scopes

One of the biggest potential problems a home can have is a damaged sewer line. This is especially true for older homes, which have sewer lines made from either cast iron, concrete or clay.  A broken on blocked sewer line can bring unneeded large expenses to the home owner.   The best way to help you avoid a situation like this is to have the sewer line inspected by an experienced sewer scope technician before purchasing your new property.  Sewer lines can have several issues which can block the proper flow of waste.  Tree roots can grow into the sewer line and cause havoc, creating major blockages. Roots, or movement in the soil can cause cracks, offset joints, and damage these buried sewer pipes.

Radon Testing

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is present in the soils in Beaverton and surrounding areas.  According to the EPA there are about 20,000 radon-related deaths in the US each year.  Radon is a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas that is emitted from the soil. This dangerous gas can enter the home through the basement, crawlspace, or cement slab, and become trapped inside the home.  Endangering the inhabitants.  Because this is a safety concern, it is highly recommended to test your home for radon if you live in the Portland area.  The EPA recommends that you take action to lower the radon levels in the home, if levels above 4.0 pCi/L are found.  How long is a radon test?  A standard short-term radon test will take 48 hours to complete. The result are available immediately, and you will be provided with a detailed report, including an average radon level, and hour by hour readings.
