Environmental Hazards

It is our job as professional home inspectors to alert you to possible problems in your current or potential house. We perform non-invasive visual inspections of the property and can alert you to areas that may need attention.

North Starr Inspections Inc. may alert you for additional inspections but does not provide this service. We do provide Structural Pest Inspections with each Home Inspection as required by the Washington Department of Agriculture.


Asbestos material that crumbles easily if sawed, scraped, or sanded into a powder is more likely to create a health hazard because it can be inhaled into the lungs, increasing the risk of disease. 


Lead is a highly toxic metal that was used for many years in products found in and around our homes. In general, the older a home, the more likely it has lead-based paint.


There are many types of mold, and none of them will grow without water or moisture. Molds can produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances.


Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas found in soils, rock, and water throughout the U.S. Radon is a threat to health because it tends to collect in homes, sometimes to very high concentrations.
