Commercial Inspections
Commercial property inspections, also known as Property Condition Assessments are important for clients seeking to know the condition of a property they may be purchasing. Depending on the client's needs, and the property types, some inspections can be fully technical, requiring some of our sub-contractors to do in depth inspections of specific items.

Once the inspection or Property Condition Assessment is completed, a written report also known as the Property Condition Report, complete with pictures, is compiled and delivered to the client within an acceptable time frame. The property condition report may include items such as concerns observed and recommendations for repairs or further inspections that may be needed.

The types of commercial buildings that we inspect include:

  • Apartment Buildings
  • Retail Stores
  • Light Industrial/Manufacturing
  • Multi-Family Buildings
  • Office Buildings/Complexes
  • Restaurants
  • Schools & Daycare Centers
  • Strip Malls

  • Warehouses

We Offer 3 Types of New Construction Inspections

Sometimes things simply go wrong when building a new building or structure. Things get broken, not installed correctly, or non-functioning. There are three times during a new construction you should/could conduct an inspection: pre-drywall and upon completion, and then after 11 month of occupancy before your one-year warranty is up.

Pre-Drywall Inspection

Pre-drywall will check to be certain that electrical, plumbing, and even framing have been done correctly. A property inspection upon completion can uncover things such as debris left by subcontractors in an attic and crawl spaces; non-function bathroom vents; nails left behind across roofs and in the grass beneath; and improperly installed doors.

Final Walk

While it’s necessary to have a Certificate of Occupancy by county inspectors, they don’t inspect your property with the same level of detail as a property inspector would.

One-Year Warranty

Before you release the general contractor of liability things can go wrong. They do not always stand the test of time.

Environmental Testing


Asbestos was a very common building material up until recently. While great efforts are being made to remove this exceedingly harmful material, asbestos can still be found in commercial buildings. Extended exposure to asbestos is a recognized cause of malignant mesothelioma and other seriously health hazards. According to OSHA, the is no safe level of asbestos exposure, and leaving an asbestos problem unchecked leaves you liable to the harm it can cause.


After a flood, or interior water problem, a commercial property owner starts to think about Mold. When it comes to diagnosing mold in your commercial property, you want to use a someone that you can trust, and who will dig deep to understand your issues. NED Chicago brings over 20 years of experience, and is licensed by the state of Illinois.


Lead is a well-known toxin that can show up in many sources in new and old buildings and industrial facilities. Lead can have a variety of negative impacts on the body, and is particularly harmful to children with developing brains and nervous systems (it has been linked to lower IQ’s and other development issues).

Termite Inspection

If these termites encounter your business or building foundation while foraging they will follow any crack or crevice with an opening of 1/32" wide into the structure. Once inside they will seek and destroy their source of food: lumber, wood panels, flooring, sheetrock, wallpaper, and any structural elements made of wood.

Clear Perspective has sub-contracted termite technicians that provide complete inspections for commercial properties for the detection of termite activity, conducive conditions that might lead to activity, and any potential entry areas.

Radon Testing

Radon is an odorless, tasteless and invisible gas produced by the decay of naturally occurring uranium in soil and water. The EPA estimates that about 20,000 lung cancer deaths each year in the U.S. are radon-related. Exposure to radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking.

Radon typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your building through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Radon can also enter a building through well water. Your building can trap radon inside.

Any building can have a radon problem. This means new and old buildings, well-sealed and drafty buildings with or without basements.

Nearly 1 out of every 15 buildings in the United States is estimated to have an elevated radon level.

If you are buying a building...

EPA recommends that you know what the indoor radon level is in any building you consider buying. Ask the seller for their radon test results. If the building has a radon-reduction system, ask the seller for information they have about the system.

If the building has not yet been tested, you should have the building tested.
If you are having a new building built, there are features that can be incorporated into your building during construction to reduce radon levels.

You Should Test for Radon...

Testing is the only way to find out your building's radon levels. The EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing all buildings below the third floor for radon.
