Plumbing Inspection

One basic thing needed in the house continuously is water. It is very essential and is required constantly throughout the day and night, for cooking in the kitchen and even drinking, in the bathroom. The use and need of water in the house cannot be overemphasized. This is one home inspectors do not take the issue of checking and ensuring that the plumbing system is in good working condition. Checking that there is no leakage as this can bring great discomfort to the house users if there is no water available for flushing. So the home inspector inspects to check the functionality of the incoming and outgoing water.

Insect Inspection

Electrical Inspection

One of the major things a home inspector checks is the electrical system of the house ensuring that the inlets and outlets are not overloaded as this is a key safety measure to the general safety of the house. It has been recorded that over 80% of fire outbreaks in most apartments and buildings are caused by the failed electrical system. Explosions and fires can cause a million dollar damage. So the home inspector examines the electrical system that is: how the wiring system is and ensures that any threat of fire hazards is fixed immediately.

HVAC Inspection

One of the worst things that can happen to you is being stuck during winter in a house where the heat supply source or furnace is not in good working condition. The reverse case is also true. Being stuck in a house during heat season and the air conditioning system is faulty. Whichever is the case, it is really an unpleasant condition for both you and your family. Every year cases of older men and women who expire out due to hypothermia are always reported. Buying a house whose air conditioning or furnace and heating supply source are faulty is disastrous This is why HVAC inspection is very vital and Square one Home inspectors covers this area squarely. We access the air conditioning, ductwork, furnace, filtration, and condensation units just to ensure that it is perfect enough to maintain the required temperature of your home.

Structural Inspection

Before buying a building, it is natural to carry out a thorough inspection of the building and all other aspects of the building, because you will pay a lot of money and you would like it to be the best. There are many cases in which, by conducting a small inspection before the purchase, the owner would have avoided their losses, which would sometimes be in the millions. Therefore, regardless of your budget, it would be wise to use a building inspector to examine in detail every aspect of the property you are about to buy. Building inspection reports do not simply take into account the elements visible to the naked eye. If that were the case, you would be able to do everything yourself. Most buildings look beautiful only to deceive people into believing they are getting the best. Cracks in beams are the most common things that often go unnoticed unless you look for the right places in detail. An experienced professional would be able to spot those mistakes that may seem like a flaw in the paint line.

Home Inspection Checklist

Radon Services

I’m buying a house. Should I have it tested for radon?

The EPA recommends that all houses, regardless of what radon zone the house is located in, be tested for radon during point of sale. The most common procedure for radon testing during real estate transactions is for the potential buyer to request the radon test as part of the overall home inspection. The radon test is generally a separate service and must be requested. If the radon test is 4 pCi/L or greater, the EPA recommends the potential buyer negotiate with the seller to have a radon mitigation system installed with the stated goal of bringing the radon level in the home below 4 pCi/L.

What is Radon ? 

Radon is a colorless, tasteless and odorless gas that causes lung cancer. Radon can build up to dangerous levels inside homes, schools and other buildings. Exposure to radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, after smoking. 

Radon gas occurs naturally. It forms when uranium breaks down to radium, which in turn breaks down to form radon. As radon decays, it releases radioactive byproducts that are inhaled and can cause lung cancer. Radon-related lung cancers are responsible for an estimated 21,000 deaths annually in the United States.
