Whether built yesterday or 100-years ago, homes are difficult to build, and mistakes are bound to happen. With a quality, licensed inspector like we have here at Axium, you will be provided with a full, detailed report to present to your builder. We will act as your advocate to ensure they take care of the issues we have found and will help you throughout the process.

Provided by builders of new homes, a warranty inspection may cover repairs or replacement of several systems or specific appliances in the home. In order to take full advantage of this warranty, it is prudent to get the home inspected by a professional before the warranty expires. There are several features of the one-year new home warranty inspection process you should know about.

Wood Destroying Organisms
A wood destroying organism (WDO) inspection is a written report on a home or property with visible and accessible evidence of an infestation or damage by wood destroying organisms. Usually this means subterranean or dry wood termites, but will also cover wood destroying beetles and wood destroying fungi. There are many steps you can take towards preventing infestation if you know what termites are looking for. Termites are ground insects that look for habitats that provide food, moisture, and shelter close to the ground: any moist place where wood meets ground.
Correcting this situation may require regrading to separate soil from any wood. Since mulch and many other landscaping materials cause the soil to remain moist, you should make sure to minimize mulching around your foundation. Some experts recommend mulching no closer than a foot from your home’s foundation. You should also stack your firewood away from your home and you should also make sure to eliminate any moisture problems in and around your home, especially in basements and crawlspaces.
A wood destroying organism report will include the following:
- Live termites or other wood destroying organisms – evidence of infestation by termites or other wood destroying organisms.
- Damage by termites or other wood destroying organisms.
- Previous treatment for termites or other wood destroying organisms.
- The inspector must report the common name of the wood destroying organism identified and the location of the evidence.
Thermal Infrared Inspections
Axium Inspections offers Infrared-Thermal Inspections. Our thermal-graphic camera enables a powerful, noninvasive method to monitor and diagnose the condition of buildings. This technology quickly identifies any problem areas that can’t be seen by the naked eye – eliminating destructive probing methods. Results are captured and documented instantly into professional reports – providing tangible proof of your findings. Infrared inspections helps you save time, money and provides you with a unique advantage for all residential or commercial inspections.
What is Thermography?
Thermography is the use of an infrared imaging and measurement camera to see and measure thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermal–or infrared energy–is light that is not visible, because its wavelength is too long to be detected by the human eye. It’s the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive as heat. In the infrared world everything with a temperature above absolute zero emits heat. Even very cold objects, like ice cubes, emit infrared. The higher the object’s temperature, the greater the IR radiation emitted. Infrared thermography cameras produce images of invisible–infrared or “heat” radiation–and provide precise non-contact temperature measurements. Nearly everything gets hot before it has issues that make it fail, making infrared cameras extremely cost-effective, valuable diagnostic tools in many diverse applications. And as the industry strives to improve manufacturing efficiencies, manage energy, improve product quality, and enhance worker safety, new applications for infrared cameras continually emerge.
Foundation Elevation Readings
The foundation of a home or building are likely to move in small increments over the lifespan of the foundation. Movement of the foundation can remain within acceptable limits, however, there are many homes or properties that have foundations which move too much. When the foundation of a property is shifting and moving too much, it can pose a very serious risk to the property and the safety and well being of those inside.
There are plenty of reasons why a foundation could shift or move with repairs potentially going into the tens of thousands of dollars. Some of the most common reasons for a shifting foundation include:
- Poor contruction and materials
- Too much water in the soil
- Not enough water in the soil
- Unstable soil
- Invasive tree roots
- Poor drainage
The foundation of a structure is one of the most important systems – and all foundations will experience some degree of settlement over time. Having a foundation elevation reading will provide extremely accurate measurements of the structure’s foundation helping determine if there has been any heaving or settling from all four corners of the structure. This will provide a good idea of if and how much the foundation has shifted. Our state-of-the-art equipment can give measurements with paper-thin precision to ensure you are getting the most accurate information about past foundation movement.
Axium Inspections only uses top of the line ZipLevel equipment. Our equipment allows us to quickly and efficiently get accurate elevation readings. Because ZipLevel technology isn’t effected by tilted planes like a laser measuring system would be, it can be used to measure almost any altitude or terrain possible. You can rest assure that the measurement readings you get from Axium’s Elevation Inspections will always be the quickest and most accurate out there.
As a home buyer, it is imperative to know the history and condition of the pool before comitting to purchasing a home. If you don’t know the condition of the home, it is highly recommended to hire a professional and it could even be required by local government or mortgage providors depending on where you live. A thorough inspection of the pool could potentially save you thousands in maintenance costs while also highlighting the physical condition of the pool and fonctionality of its pumps and systems.
When do you need a pool Inspector?
We treat the condition of the pool the same as we would any major aspect of the home such as structural or foundational evalution. It is not uncommon for pools to start showing issues even though it may seem to be fine at a given point in time. These kinds of issues could end up being very costly as they’re the most unexpected issues.
Our inspection team knows exactly what to look for and can call out signs of degradation and will call them out with notes and photos in our online reporting software. With a pool inspection, you can enter the transaction process as a well informed investor so you can negotiate pricing or back out if need be.
Axium’s Pool Inspection Services covers the following evaluations:
- Complete surface inspection
- Equipment inspection (pump, filters, timers, lighting, electrical, and more)
- Pool coping inspection
- Leak detection
- Tile inspection
Buying a home with a sprinkler system can save you time and is incredibly convenient for keeping your yard looking its best. However, before you invest in a home with a sprinkler system, you want to be 100% positive that the system is functioning properly with a complete evaluation of the condition of the system or if it needs any repairs. A Sprinkler Inspection with Axium can reveal or prevent problems such as water bills that may be higher than previous months, costly maintenance and repair fees, water damage to your property due to leakage or pressure issues.
A Sprinkler Inspection with Axium is an in-depth evaluation of the entire condition of the sprinkler system including an inspection of all components of the system, a function test on all heads, inspection of head locations, controllers, connections, sensors, and pressure issues. Our inspector will pass on notes about concerns or issues accompanied with photos of their findings. All of our findings will be communicated through our easy-to-use, online reporting software within 24 hours of when the inspection was conducted.
After you’ve purchased your home and the sprinkler system, it’s recommended to frequently check and test your sprinkler system to ensure it’s working properly. To avoid damage in the winter, drain the sprinkler systems on your own or hire a professional.
What are some signs that your sprinkler system requires an inspection or maintenance?
- Sputtering or chaotic water pressure
- Low or high water pressure
- Leaking valves
- Excessive water pooling
- Higher than normal utility/water costs
Private septic systems can be one of the most costly repairs a home owner can run into with repairs reaching as high as $35,000-40,000. That’s why finding out the condition of the private septic system with an inspection is imperative before comitting to buying a home and to making informed decisions in the negotiation phase.
As a homeowner, it is your responsibility to regularly maintain your septic system, keeping it from failing and adding costly repair fees to your investment. The risks for failing septic systems become a lot higher when maintenance becomes a non-priority. And the consequences can be severe such as contaminated ground water, rivers, wells, lakes, and more. And depending on where you live, septic systems could be regulated by local governments which could mean harsher penalties are involved with lack of maintenance.
Here are some tips to remember when you are maintaining your septic system:
- Grass should be the only planted near or around your septic system as roots from bushes and trees can cause pipe intrusion and blockage.
- Keep drains, pumps, and water redirection pipes away from the drainfield as flooding can hinder the treatment process and can cause damage to interior fixtures.
- Keep household items such as paper towels, hygiene products or anything that could clog a toilet, out of your septic system. These can cause blockages which can lead to costly repairs in the long term.
- Have your septic system evaluated by a professional at least every 3 years.
- Pump frequently!
Sewer lines are extremely expensive to replace and repair so the sooner you get a report of the condition of the line, the sooner you can request that it be fixed. During real estate transactions, a damaged sewer scope can be requested to be fixed during the inspection objection portion. That means that the seller may decide to fix or replace the sewer scope in order to complete the sale. In the event that you buy a property without getting a sewer scope, you could be putting yourself into a situation where you will have to pay thousands and thousands of dollars to fix.
Axium Inspections understands the importance of keeping your home and business plumbing system healthy. We offer a wide variety of inspection services and, since we don’t perform cleaning or maintenance, will provide you a prompt, non-biased recommendation for addressing any immediate needs.

What is a Sewer Scope?
A sewer scope inspection is a process that allows professionals to examine the inside of a sewer line through a video camera. This process is often used to identify any potential problems with the sewer line and to help plan for necessary repairs. Sewer scope inspections are often used by homeowners, businesses, and municipalities to assess the condition of their sewer lines. The inspection can help identify any potential problems with the sewer line, such as clogs, leaks, and breaks.
The video footage from the sewer scope inspection can also be used to help plan for necessary repairs. Homeowners and businesses can use the footage to determine the extent of the damage and to get an idea of the cost of the repairs. Municipalities can use the footage to determine the extent of the damage and to get an idea of the cost of the repairs. Municipalities can use the footage to identify areas of the sewer line that need improvement and to budget for necessary repairs.
Mold is a type of fungus that grows in our natural environment when exposed to excess water. Mold spores–tiny microscopic seeds–can be found virtually everywhere, including in homes. They waft through the indoor and outdoor air continually and can grow on home and building materials and furnishings. When mold spores land on a damp spot indoors, they may begin growing and digesting. When excessive moisture or water accumulates indoors, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or un-addressed. The key to preventing mold growth is to control moisture intrusion.
Axium Inspections is nationally certified for mold inspections and mold testing. We are experienced with commercial and residential mold inspections throughout Colorado.
We use top of the line Zeffon International Bio-Pump Plus equipment to perform mold air tests and identify concentration levels and species of the mold spores present within your Colorado property.
We send all of our mold test lab samples to a nationally accredited lab for analysis with a fast 48-hour turnaround on lab results.
Our InterNACHI certified mold inspectors will perform a visual mold inspection, utilizing sophisticated moisture detection equipment to determine areas in your home that may be conducive to mold growth.
This allows our certified mold inspectors to take the proper types of samples in the proper locations within your Colorado home and provide the most accurate mold testing lab results.
More importantly, we are not a Colorado mold mitigation company; what this means for our clients is that they can rest assured that Axium Mold inspections will not tell you you have mold just to get your mold mitigation business.

What is Radon?
Radon is an odorless, colorless, tasteless, radioactive gas that has been found in homes all over the United States. Breathing radon gas for prolonged periods of time can present a significant health risk for your family. This threat is completely preventable; radon can be detected with a simple test.
What can be done?
Fortunately, there are effective ways to significantly reduce the amount of radon in your home, school, or commercial building. The first step is testing your home.

The City of Denver passed an ordinance requiring all rental properties in Denver to apply and receive a rental license inspection. For all properties with 2 or more units on a parcel of land, a license is required by the beginning of 2023. All other properties are required to get a license by the beginning of 2024. Look to Axium for all your rental property inspection needs. With our ICC Certified and trained inspectors and top-of-the-line equipment, you can be confident that you’re getting the best quality, the best price, and the most accurate results. Protect the health of your property and give your residents peace of mind as well as confidence in their tenancy.
Pre-Inspection Walk Through
Axium Inspectors will meet with the property managers or owners to go through Denver’s rental inspection, compliance, and licensing process and address items to be inspected, common deficiencies, and best practices.
Random Unit Selection
Axium Inspection uses a third-party random number generator to determine the units of the multi-tenant building that need to be inspected. Axium will document this selection process for recording purposes.
Our ICC Certified Inspectors perform thorough inspections of each rental unit identified with the property manager earlier in the process. We abide by the strict standards of ICC and follow the City of Denver’s Residential Rental Inspection Checklist. All inspection findings will be recorded with detailed notes and images.
When Axium has gone over the issues in question and the property manager/owner has addressed those issues to meet compliance, your ICC certified Inspector can revisit the previously inspected units to certify these issues have been resolved.
Approval and Documentation
At the completion of our rental unit inspections, compliance corrections, and any subsequent re-inspections, Axium will provide you a completed Residental Rental Inspection Checklist for each of the inspected units. We will also provide all documentation necessary to filing for your rental license. All detailed inspection reports, images, and notes will be stored online for future access.
