At First Look Home Inspection, we’ve been assisting residents of Racine, Waukesha, Milwaukee, and throughout surrounding Wisconsin with the transition into their new homes.

Mold Inspections in Waukesha, Racine, & Milwaukee Wisconsin

Mold Inspection & Testing

Not all mold is bad, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. Mold testing is the only way to determine what mold exists in your home. We start by collecting air samples one inside the home and another from outside the home.

Our job as your professional home inspector is to alert you, to the extent possible, to unknown problems and potential environmental hazards in your current or potential house. Ours is a non-invasive visual inspection of your property which can alert you to possible problems. See our Environmental Hazards page for more information. *We inspect for these hazards (for a fee).

Asbestos Inspection & Testing

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.
This type of inspection is usually done on a Commercial remodel or Demolition, as well as, Home Fire Training for local fire departments. It involves taking samples and getting a lab to test these samples and filing reports of its findings with the proper state agencies. See Asbestos FAQ.

Radon Inspection & Testing

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.
We are certified to perform Radon Measurement. It is very important that one selects a certified radon tester that will follow guide lines that the EPA has established when testing for radon. We offer electronic testing during our inspections with immediate results! See Radon FAQ.

Additional Home Inspection Services

  1. Home Review. Following the acceptance of an offer, a home review serves as a means to verify that the condition of the property has not changed since the initial inspection or that requested repairs have been made.
  2. Check Up. A check up provides a complete home inspection for owners who wish to benefit from professional, educational information on the best way to preserve their property and maintain their investment.
  3. Title Company Inspection. Also referred to as a “Draw Inspection”, this is a verification of construction progress for payment purposes as outlined in construction contracts.
  4. Home Energy Audit. We will examine and assess your home to identify opportunities for energy savings. A home tune-up will help you put your home in top operating condition and save you money in the long run.
  5. Construction Inspection. In a new home, the quality of construction is often not what it used to be some years ago, therefore many buyers have independent reviews of their properties during various stages of the construction process, including slab, frame, and final inspection. This relatively inexpensive inspection protects your purchase, prevents unpleasant surprises, and ensures the quality home that you’ve dreamed about.
  6. Warranty Inspection. Most builders provide a one-year warranty for new construction. Generally during this period of time the buyer develops a "punch list" of corrections for the contractor to repair under the warranty coverage. Some defects will not be obvious to the untrained eye. It is prudent to obtain our home inspectors list of items that will most likely be repaired by your builder at no cost to you. You will be reassured knowing that potential problems were addressed before they grew into something that could cost you a great deal down the road.
  7. Allergen Testing. This involves taking carpet/dirt samples and sending the samples off to a lab for analysis. We can test for: Dust mites, cockroach, cat, and dog, Fungal Alternaria, Fungal: Aapergillus, Mouse and Rat, and normal turnaround is 4-5 working days.
  8. Pet/Animal Stain. This test uses a black light to see if pet stains exist on your carpet. These stains cannot be seen without this light.
  9. EMF Testing. We live in an invisible sea of electromagnetic field radiation. Subtle energies constantly swirl in and around our bodies, whether or not we are aware of them. Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) are energy waves with frequencies below 300 hertz or cycles per second. The electromagnetic fields we encounter daily come from every day things such as power lines, radar and microwave towers, television and computer screens, motors, fluorescent lights, microwave ovens, cell phones, electric blankets, house wiring and hundreds of other common electrical devices.
