Commercial Services & Solutions
Essentially, the purpose of a commercial building inspection is to evaluate a building or property that is used for commercial purposes, to maximize the profits from operations or rental income. There are several types of buildings in this category, including cafes, retail shops, warehouses, factories, office buildings, residential units (including multi-family and single-family homes), restaurants, and so on.
It is important to conduct building inspections to detect structural or other issues with a building. Building inspections should be conducted regularly in commercial buildings but are most commonly conducted at the beginning or end of a tenant agreement or when the property is being bought or sold.
Commercial properties represent a significant investment, so these extra steps help ensure that the building owner’s investment is secure as well as that a tenant or purchaser is purchasing a property that is fit for purpose.
The inspection will reveal the true property condition, including any financial burdens associated with the purchase of the building. So make sure to call Tri-State Smart Home Solutions for an indepth inspection including extensive interior and exterior examinations.

Commercial & Environmental Testing
A Certified Indoor Air Quality & Mold Testing Organization
Our experience in finding, collecting, and analyzing mold samples comes with the promise of providing you with the most accurate results you’ll find anywhere.
Molds spores form and grow where it’s moist. In the right conditions, molds have the potential to cause health problems, producing allergens, irritants, and in extreme cases, toxic substances. If you have concerns about the growth and spread of mold indoors or would like to include mold testing as part of your inspection, Tri-State is equipped to do an in-depth inspection. The inspection will come complete with detailed analysis, photos, sample collection/mold testing (if necessary), and recommendations for remediation.

A Certified Radon Testing Organization
Did you know that behind only smoking, radon is the #2 leading cause of lung cancer? It’s a scary fact, with testing and prevention even more pressing in our tri-state region where radioactive radon gas levels are well above average. Virtually undetectable without the proper tests, radon can seep into buildings by way of cracks in the foundation and other openings. The indoor air can then become polluted with high concentrations of dangerous gas, and the consequences can be dire.
Tri-State Smart Home Solutions is a National Radon Safety Board Certified organization, recognized as a certified radon tester in Ohio, West Virginia, and Kentucky. Because we use the latest in active radon monitoring equipment, we are in a unique position to have results available immediately upon testing completion.
Is Radon Testing Really Necessary?
The EPA says yes! Here’s what they recommend:
- If you are buying or selling a building, have it tested for radon
- For a new building, ask if radon-resistant construction features were used and if the building has been tested
- Fix the building if the radon level is 4 picoCuries per liter (pCi/L) or higher
- Radon levels less than 4 pCi/L still pose a risk, and in many cases, may be reduced
Take steps to prevent device interference when conducting a radon test
If we detect high concentrations of radon in your building, the good news is it can be fairly easy to reduce indoor radon levels. Get tested and put your mind at ease today!

Does Your BUSINESS Have Lead?
If your building, or the building you’re looking to purchase, was built before 1978, there’s a good chance it could contain interior or exterior lead-based paint.
That can pose serious health risks, especially for children, or if you’re pregnant.
Tri-State Smart Home Solutions can take paint samples from your building and have them tested for lead, either as a standalone service or in conjunction with a building inspection.
