Why You Should Test

City Water or Private Well

Most homes in the Myrtle Beach area depend on city water and these homes should have their water tested if they are concerned with the quality of water especially if you are particularly sensitive to water conditions.  The quality of water from government municipalities has come into question in recent years.

If your home is on a well, you should have it tested regularly.  This is to ensure you have clean, quality water.  Testing should be done annually at a minimum for Coliform Bacteria and every other year for Nitrates.

Purchasing a Home

If you are in the process of buying a home, water testing my be required in order for the loan to be processed.  This is especially true when it comes to a VA,FHA,HUD, or Rural Development home loans.

Before moving forward, check with your lending institution to see if testing is a requirement.  This is becoming a more common request for lenders.  Most testing in this case includes Coliform Bacteria and nitrates at the very least.

What Others Say About Us

Used their services for inspections for a property we are looking to buy. The company arrived on schedule, performed an extremely thorough inspection of the property that resulted in a very detailed inspection report that came to us timely. We were highly impressed by Tyler who did the inspection and delivered the report to us electronically.

Very professional, personable, giving me a peace of mind that the property that I am buying is in good condition and and is not what we would call a money pit. William took his time to check and report any issues that should be a priority. They make sure they check everything and give a detailed report to their customers. I would recommend Rivertown Property Inspection and I would use them again in the future.

They provide you with high quality inspections and high quality inspection reports that are very detailed, color coded, and with photo's to support their finding's which they get back to you on same day. This is very helpful when you are trying to determine repair requests with your client. If you still have questions after receiving the report give them a call, the inspector himself will give you a call back within 24 hours.
