Sherlock Home Inspectors, NJ home inspections

A New Jersey home inspection can look at environmental concerns.  Many home buyers are looking for healthy homes with a reduced carbon footprint.  A home inspection is part of the home buying process and can also determine how energy efficient a home is and what its impact will be on the local environment as well as the health impact on you and your family.  Speak with your NJ home inspector prior to the inspection to ensure that the focus can be on how healthy the home is and what systems are in place to reduce its environmental impact.


Sherlock Home Inspectors focus on a number of issues with any given home.  Among the areas of environmental concern the following can be part of the home inspection process:

  • Radon Testing
  • Asbestos
  • Urea Formaldehyde Foam Insulation
  • Lead Paint Testing
  • Oil Tank Testing
  • Open Septic Tank Testing

Knowing that your new home will be a healthy home is important.  The current owner may not know what the true condition of a home is and your awareness can help you take steps to make it healthier.  Having the information available can help you reduce the carbon footprint for you, your family, and your home.
