Tap Score also offers an Upgraded Certified Home Loan Test that meets the same certified testing requirements, along with 40+ additional contaminants tested for only $59 more.
Testing includes: Lead, arsenic, nitrate, nitrite, total coliform, and E. coli.
Report analysis includes:Health-risk assessment, potential plumbing and aesthetic issues (taste, odor, appearance), comparison to any regulatory limits and/or public health guidelines, and unbiased treatment recommendations.
Note: If your county or loan officer requires additional sample handling or specific local lab certifications, we strongly suggest you email the SimpleLab team (firstname.lastname@example.org) to ensure we meet your needs. It is also important to note that most loan officers require that the sample be collected by someone NOT directly involved in the sale (ie. not the buyer or the seller of the property). This means that it can be collected by a home inspector, neighbor, etc.
