It seems that we hear a lot about environmental concerns these days. Much of it is simply the result of a greater awareness than in the past. And even though there isn’t anything to be concerned with in most homes, there are still a number of potential home environmental issues that NJ buyers should be aware of Well Water quality is probably the most common concern and the one most often tested for.
Typically, a basic water quality test will check pH, water hardness, the presence of fluoride, sodium, iron and manganese, plus bacteria such as E-coli. Additionally, water may be tested for the presence of lead or arsenic. In New Jersey homes built before 1978, lead based paint may be present. If the home you plan to purchase is constructed prior 1978.
You may want to invest in a lead base paint inspection.
The cost to renovate can exceed your budget if there is lead base paint present. NJ Landlords As required by a new statute, the Lead Hazard Control Assistance Act of home of three or more dwelling.The entire structure interiors to be free of lead base paint.
The EPA’s Renovation, Repair, and Painting Final Rule (40 CFR 745) requires that beginning April 22, 2010. The law requires the contractor to be trained in the EPA Certified Renovator, EPA Certified Lead Dust Wipe Technician and NJ Department of Community Affairs (DCA) Regulations Certificate Program. NJ home Owners do it yourself Lead test Kits recognition by the EPA. Read about EPA- Recognized lead test kits & the Agency’s effort to evaluate the effectiveness of lead test kits.
Another common environmental concern with the NJ home is radon. Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the natural decay of uranium in the soil. Pretty much all New Jersey homes have some radon present; tests can determine if the level present is higher than what is considered safe. If the level is too high, a radon reduction system will need to be installed.
In older homes built up 1980’s, asbestos was used in many types of insulation and other building materials. If the asbestos is releasing fibers into the air, it needs to be removed or repaired by a New Jersey AHERA professional contractor specializing in asbestos cleanup. But, if the asbestos material is in good repair, and not releasing fibers, it poses no hazard and can be left alone.
