The Holmes Company

My name is Dan Bowers and I do residential, commercial and environmental inspections in the Kansas City metroplex and surrounding areas. In 1984 I became one of the 1st ASHI  Home Inspectors in the Midwest and at various times over the past 25 years I have been elected President of both the Kansas and the Missouri ASHI Chapters, and served on their National Board of Directors 3 times in the past 20 years. In 1987 I became the 1st NAHI Inspector in Kansas or Missouri and I also serve as the Education Director for the local NAHI Chapter.

I've been performing building inspections full time since 1984. Before that I was a Home Builder, Contractor, Real Estate Broker and part-time home inspector for over 10 years. In the past 20 years I have been featured in over 64 articles for local newspapers or magazines, appeared on several TV or radio shows on housing defects, and we've have been featured on both Stan Kramer's investigative TV news show, the KC Star's home video series on home ownership and Channel 41 as an expert in construction defects, etc. I am also an approved Continuing Education Trainer for both the Kansas and Missouri Real Estate Appraisal Boards, FHA, all 3 major home inspection associations (NAHI, ASHI, NACHI) and I have taught adult education classes on building and construction defects at Johnson County Community College in Kansas.

For the first 4 years I did radon testing, it was just another service like any other. Then in  a little over a 3 year time period, I had 2 very close and dear friends die from lung cancer. Neither had ever smoked. After their deaths, a test at each of their homes revealed elevated radon levels of over 15pCi/L. They had each lived in their homes for over 12 years. All of a sudden testing for Elevated Radon Levels to help protect other families was a passion for me.

Many inspectors in our area have simply purchased radon testing equipment and started testing, with no formal training or education. With the health concerns associated with elevated radon levels, it's crazy for you to entrust your families health to someone like that. Besides having done Radon Testing for over 25 years, I've taken multiple Radon classes such as:
