When it comes to your home, maintenance and condition can cause stress. Put your worries at ease whether you are considering selling, have a current contract for sale or simply just want a closer look at your home.
A home inspection is not meant to cause problems, but instead provide knowledge. A detailed visual inspection can reveal potential concerns that may not be known.
If you consider it on a "to-do list", most likely it will to others as well. If you can get ahead and take care of it beforehand, the less worry down the road. This will also prevent a small issue from turning into a potential larger concern.
The inspector will need to access all areas of the home to provide a full comprehensive report. This includes the electrical panel, attic, crawlspace, HVAC - most common areas where things get stored and build up.
Make sure all filters are clean and are the correct size and fit for the device. This is typically an easy check, but often forgotten.
Check all the smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors in the home - if new ones are needed, this is a must for home safety. Go ahead and replace any old lightbulbs as well to eliminate any electrical concern.
Utilities should be on for the inspector to complete a full inspection report. Major components cannot be checked without them.
