A Residential Home Inspection is an examination of a one to two family dwelling home. Our premier Maryland home inspectors will perform a visual inspection of the structure and components of the home to find items that are not performing correctly or are unsafe. If a problem or a symptom of a problem is found during the course of our inspection services, we will include a description of the problem. Aaron’s Home Inspections will also provide a report using an electronic reporting system w/photos inserted into the report. We may also recommend further evaluation on the date of the inspection.
A rental property inspection allows for the landlord and their tenant to review the condition of the property before the move in date, and sets the expectation of the condition in which it should be returned to. We provide this service to Baltimore City and Baltimore County rentals only.

Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas that you are not able to see, smell, or taste. By breathing in air containing radon, you increase your chances of getting lung cancer. The Surgeon General of the United States has also warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US.
Radon problems can be found and fixed. Aaron’s Home Inspections is experienced and qualified in identifying the existence of radon and recommending methods of removing it.
Molds are fungi that can be found both indoors and outdoors. No one knows how many species of fungi exist but estimates range from tens of thousands to perhaps three hundred thousand or more. Molds grow best in warm, damp, and humid conditions, and spread and reproduce by making spores. Mold spores can survive harsh environmental conditions, such as dry conditions, that do not support normal mold growth.
Some people are sensitive to molds. In these instances, exposure to molds can cause symptoms such as nasal stuffiness, eye irritation, wheezing, or skin irritation. Other people, such as those with serious allergies to molds, may have more severe reactions. Severe reactions may occur among workers exposed to large amounts of molds in occupational settings, such as farmers working around moldy hay. These reactions may include fever and shortness of breath. Individuals with chronic lung illnesses, such as obstructive lung disease, may develop mold infections in their lungs (CDC).
Aaron’s Home Inspections can find molds and recommend methods of eliminating them in your new or existing home/property.

Lead is a highly toxic metal that was used for many years in products found in and around our homes. Health effects from this exposure to lead range from behavioral problems and learning disabilities, to seizures and death. Children 6 years old and under are most at risk, because their bodies are growing quickly (EPA).
Research suggests that the primary sources of lead exposure for most children are:
