Your dishwasher won’t run. Your heat won’t come on. The cost of home repair these days can be intimidating to any homeowner- especially first-time homeowners. We offer protection from these issues through our home warranty coverage.
Your home warranty company will give guidance on any number of home issues. For instance, a few roof shingles blow off in high winds. A pipe on an exterior wall freezes occasionally. The crawl space is damp. While these issues are not covered by any type of extended home warranty, these are all issues that can be solved for minimal to no cost at all. Help is just a phone call away!
For the hundreds of other possibilities that are covered by the home warranty, a representative will go through a few simple questions and procedures to help us identify the problem with a service technician, and follow through on ensuring the proper fix is performed. With most claims, a technician visit occurs within 24 hours, and the problem is solved on the first visit. Some claims require parts that may be ordered or in stock locally. Either way, the cost to the homeowner is often the low deductible. Additional charges would apply for after hours service calls and obsolete parts. See policy for a complete list of covered components and limitations.
Nearly 80% of all policyholders that make a claim in their first year renew their policy. They see the financial benefit to being a part of a group of thousands and thousands of homeowners that can negotiate better rates of service than any single homeowner. Most policyholders save more than their policy premium each and every year when you compare their overall cost with retail contractor rates.
Sellers benefit from home warranties each and every day. One thing that is a guarantee in any home- all motors will eventually go out. Every appliance will malfunction eventually. Sometimes eventually is right after closing, and as is often the case, the buyer looks to the seller to fix the problem they feel is the seller’s responsibility.
With a home warranty, this can be avoided. The date on which the problem occurred is the primary factor in determining coverage, and for the great many of situations similar to this, the malfunction occurred shortly after closing. A buyer is much more likely to call their home warranty company when they experience a problem than call on the seller to fix it. This gives the buyer the chance to hear from a qualified professional contractor what the problem is and how it happened.
By offering a home warranty with every transaction, you are providing a proven marketing tool that can contribute to a safe and successful sale in many ways: Some home warranties suggest that homes with warranties sell 50% faster and they sell for up to 3% more, because buyers feel they have made a safer investment. While we here at Residential Warranty Services find these numbers to be on the high side, we know from experience that a home warranty can reduce the seller’s liability for problems with the home that occur after the sale.

Epidemiological studies in the U.S. and Europe have associated mold sensitivity with the development, persistence, and severity of asthma. Exposure to mold and the mycotoxins or toxins they produce can be absorbed through the skin, GI tract, or by inhalation of fungal parts. Suppression of the immune system by exposure to these types of pollutants has been linked to chronic diseases, even cancer.
Mold exposure can be harmful to your health. People with weak immune systems from diseases such as HIV infection, patients taking chemotherapy, people with existing lung disease, and those who have had an organ transplant are more susceptible to infections from mold and can have a severe reaction.
The increasing awareness of mold problems in indoor environments has created high demand for mold investigation and inspection services. Fluctuations in air quality often go undetected until toxins accumulate to dangerous levels in an environment. Monitoring and promptly addressing air quality concerns before problems arise is essential to the health of your home, business, clients, and employees.
Sample analysis of your indoor space for air quality monitoring and fungal-related toxicity concentration including black mold is our specialty.

Bacteria are microscopic organisms not visible to the naked eye. These tiny organisms are everywhere, both inside and outside of your body. They survive in a variety of environments and while some are necessary for life others can make you extremely sick. At Microbial Express Labs we offer a complete testing service that not only detects the presence or absence of sewage-related bacteria, we also quickly identify and enumerate them.
Coliform bacteria are natural inhabitants of the environment and the intestinal tract of warm-blooded animals. It is their presence in drinking water that indicates that disease-causing organisms (pathogens) could be in the water system. A Total Coliform test is used as an overall indication of sanitation efficiency. The presence of total coliform, by itself, does not imply that the resource is contaminated, but it can reveal that one, if not more of the more serious types of harmful bacteria, such as fecal or E. coli bacteria, may be present.
Escherichia coli (E. coli) is the major species in the fecal coliform (FC) group and is the best indicator of fecal pollution and the possible presence of pathogens or disease-causing organisms.
E. coli bacteria are found in greater quantities than Total Coliform in animal fecal matter. Our Total Coliform test detects the presence of Total Coliform and E. coli. If E. coli is detected along with Total Coliform in drinking water, there is strong evidence that sewage is present. As a result, a greater potential for pathogenic organisms to exist.
At Microbial Express Labs we offer a second layer to this test. In addition to the traditional test mentioned above, our Complete Fecal Coliform test adds the detection of Enerococcus faecalis. E. Faecalis is also a fecal indicator organism and one of the various microorganisms used a positive control in the examination of water for human consumption. E. faecalis is a very stable bacterium. Its ability to survive in harsh conditions is greater than that of E. coli and in recent years there has been an increase in its resistance to many once used antibiotics.
A positive test implies a risk that pathogenic species may be present. Testing for bacteria is the only reliable way to know if your water is safe. You cannot determine the presence of disease-causing organisms by look, taste, or smell.
It is recommended that well owners test their water for coliform bacteria at least once a year and more frequently if bacteria have been a problem in the past. Our trusted labs not only provide the detection of but also will enumerate the number of Coliforms/Escherichia coli (E. coli), and Enterococcus faecalis bacteria. We provide fast, accurate results you can trust!
