Water Testing

Whether your home has a well or city water we offer water quality tests to fit your needs. We test for the chemical profile of your drinking water, bacteria in the water, radon in water, pesticides, and many other contaminants.

Air Testing

Radon in air testing is crucial for detecting elevated levels of this colorless, odorless gas, which poses health risks. Our sensitive test monitors help ensure a safe indoor environment by identifying and addressing radon levels in residential and commercial properties

Mold testing is essential for identifying and assessing the presence of mold in indoor air. Our testing can provide valuable insights into potential health risks and guide effective remediation measures, ensuring a healthy living or working environment.

Over 35,000 homes in Connecticut are estimated to be impacted by the crumbling foundation problem. A visual inspection by our professional engineer will include a thorough examination of a property’s foundation to identify signs of deterioration such as cracks, shifting, or crumbling concrete.
