10 Friendly Tips for a better Home Inspection

Here are 10 friendly tips to help you get ready for a GREAT Home Inspection experience!

1. Confirm that water, electric and gas service are on, with gas pilot lights burning.

2. Ensure pets won't hinder the inspection. Ideally, they should be removed from premises or secured outside.

3. Replace burned out bulbs to avoid a "Light is inoperable" report that may suggest an electrical problem.

4. Test smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, and replace dead batteries.

5. Clean or replace dirty HVAC air filters. They should fit securely.

6. Remove stored items, debris and wood from foundation. These may be cited as "conducive conditions" for termites.

7. Remove items blocking access to HVAC equipment, electric service panels, water heaters, attics and crawl spaces.

8. Unlock areas the inspector must access, like attic doors or hatches, electric service panels, closets, fence gates and crawl spaces.

9. Trim tree limbs to 10' from the roof and shrubs from the house to allow access.

10. Attend to broken or missing items like doorknobs, locks and latches; windowpanes, screens and locks; gutters, downspouts and chimney caps.

But don't worry if you can't do some of these tips, we'll still do our BEST to make sure your Home Inspection is thorough, and as complete as possible.
