We hold national mold and environmental certifications from the American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC). Our inspection certifications include: American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), California Association of Real Estate Inspectors (CREIA), International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (Inter-NACHI) as well as the National Radon Safety Board. Steve Zivolich currently serves on the American Council for Accredited Certification Board, as well as a State Director for CREIA. In addition, he also provides expert witness consultation regarding mold indoor air quality issues. Steve reviews and approves all inspections and reports produced by Elias Reyes, who is also a Certified Structural Mold Investigator, by ACAC. Our co-owner Joseph Gurierrez is a member of ASHI, and Inter-NACHI.
Both Elias and Joseph are bilingual in Spanish!
Our firm has conducted over 7,000 property and mold investigations in California. Most of our client referrals come from physicians, past clients or other inspectors aware of our specialized mold expertise. Our inspection business has always been very busy. However, we choose to limit our work volume to help provide the highest level of attention and quality for our clients.
Our inspection emphasis is to determine property defects (including mold hazards) that may impact the health and safety of you or your family. We approach each and every home that we inspect, as if we were planning to move by own family into the property. We truly enjoy the detective and diagnostic aspects of the inspection process.
Sometimes this inspection progression is so directed at the observations at hand, that we may neglect the usual social amenities at times. If so, this is an unintended oversight on our part and something we want to modify. Therefore, please know that we want you to be involved as much as you wish in the inspection process. Feel invited to participate in our inspection routine, ask questions, or point out specific property defects of concern.
We believe that the only “bad” question, is one that is not asked. We want you to leave the inspection feeling fully involved, comfortable and satisfied with the inspection and products. If you need extra time to ask more questions or need more information, please ask us and we will do our best. We will also conduct a complete review of our findings at the conclusion of the inspection.
After the inspection, we will promptly provide you with a written report and photos of our findings. Please contact us once you have received and read the report, with any questions or suggestions you may have regarding our findings.
