Our Service Area

1st Step Home Inspection is centrally located in Frederick, Maryland.  We service most all of Maryland including:


Home Inspections

Whether you are buying, selling, or just interested in maintaining your home – we provide the home inspection you need.


Nothing destroys a home faster than insects.  Make sure your home is safe from wood-destroying insects.

Septic Inspections

If your home is on a septic system, a septic inspection can provide you with information on issues before they get out of hand.

Radon Testing

The EPA recommends all homes be tested for Radon, and some counties even require Radon tests before all home sales.

Mold Testing

A mold inspection can reassure you that the home you are considering purchasing is safe if you see signs of water damage.

Water Testing

Homes on a private well system should be tested for water safety and purity.  Contaminants in water can affect your health.
