Property Manager FAQs – What services do you offer Property Management Companies?
We’re a one-stop shop for all environmental questions. We’re your consultant if there’s a concern about an existing building (e.g., “sick building”), or if you have a tenant or owner who wants a healthy building.
Who hires Healthy Building Science?
What types of buildings does Healthy Building Science inspect?
No building is too small, or too large. We inspect everything from apartment units and houses, to office towers and hospitals.
How fast can HBS respond to a request?
We almost always schedule within a week, and can often do next day site visits.
Who receives a copy of the inspection report?
Our policy is to only share the report with our client, or whoever is paying HBS for the service.
How long does it take to get a report?
Reports are generally delivered within 7- 10 business days depending on lab turnaround times (TAT), if lab analysis is involved. TATs can be expedited for an additional fee. Communicate your desired TAT to our team.
How much does it cost?
Costs vary depending on where a project is located (travel time), how large the building is (time onsite), what environmental testing is performed (lab fees), and what sort of report and turnaround is requested. Small jobs are usually $600-1200, larger jobs can cost tens of thousands. Get a quote by completing this form or contacting us.
Do you make recommendations AND do remediation?
HBS is a consultant without a conflict of interest. Environmental consultants make recommendations and Healthy Building Science provides an independent, 3rd party assessment without the conflict of interest involved in also selling remediation. Less scrupulous companies up-sell their services, often unnecessarily, e.g., the $99 energy audit where the company makes money selling windows and insulation, or the $199 mold inspection where the company makes their money selling remediation. We can give you a list of remediation companies and help you select the right one for the job if you so wish.
Can you identify where the source of a problem is?
Often times our trained inspectors and high-tech equipment do identify a “smoking gun,” but other times we provide peace of mind and verify that a suspected problem is not a problem at all.
