Empire Pest Control is a full service pest control company located in Holland, owned by Ryan Fogg. Servicing the greater West Michigan area, our technicians come with 20+ years combined experience. 

 

Commercial Inspections

The objective of a commercial inspection is to provide written communication describing the issues discovered from observations made and research conducted by the inspector that in the inspector's opinion are likely to be of interest to his/her client. It is also to enhance the client's information and knowledge about the commercial property to improve decision-making for buying, selling, maintaining or improving the property.

 

 Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging Cameras are expensive. Most people don't use thermal cameras every day. That's where we come in. Our thermal imaging service can find issues like mold or moisture build-up that could be unhealthy for your family. Air Tightness and Thermal Imaging testing are also important quality control measures. Heat losses in buildings can account for up to 50% of the total energy consumption.

 

Radon Testing

Radon is estimated to cause many thousands of deaths each year. Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon. Testing is inexpensive and easy — it should only take a few minutes of your time.


 

Very few homebuyers today would dream of signing the loan papers and closing on a new house without first having it inspected for any hidden problems. Smart home sellers can take advantage of this by having our certified inspector thoroughly examine their house — before putting it up for sale.
