HOME MAINTENANCE AND SAFETY INSPECTIONS
Owning and maintaining a home is a significant responsibility. All of us live busy lives, so understanding the status of your home is often difficult. We often take a reactionary approach to maintenance, and only address or repair something once it breaks.
A Maintenance and Safety Inspection from Right Way Home Inspection will review all areas of your home, which are related to proper maintenance and repair. The inspection will review the following areas:
Roofing and Attic - Foundation, Basement and Crawlspace - Plumbing System - Electrical System -
Heating/Cooling Systems -Garage -Interior Spaces
A complete, detailed report will be generated for you that will outline:
Immediate Repairs – highlight items needing immediate repair
Maintenance Reminders – outline items that are in need of maintenance or will need maintenance in the next year
Monitoring Needed – indicate reminders for items that should be monitored and checked periodically
Safety Items – highlight any unsafe conditions or items affecting occupant safety.
INDOOR AIR QUALITY TEST
Indoor air quality is generally worse than most people believe, but there are things you can do about it.
Some Quick Facts:
Indoor air quality can be worse than that of outdoor air.
Problems can arise from moisture, insects, pets, appliances, radon, materials used in household products and furnishings, smoke, and other sources.
Effects range from minor annoyances to major health risks. Remedies include ventilation, cleaning, moisture control, inspections, and following manufacturers' directions when using appliances and products.
Research has shown that the quality of indoor air can be worse than that of outdoor air. Many homes are built or remodeled more tightly, without regard to the factors that assure fresh and healthy indoor air. Our homes today contain many furnishings, appliances and products that can affect indoor air quality.
An Elevated condition of mold in your home can be very dangerous to your health. Certain mold spores are known carcinogens and others can lead to respiratory disease, allergic reactions, and other health issues, in addition to compromising the integrity your home's building construction and structure. A Mold Inspection and Mold Testing can help prevent serious problems and significant expenses.
Detect this Odorless, Colorless, and Tasteless Gas
Has your home been tested for Radon? It may be time to check your home’s radon levels.
Radon is an odorless, tasteless and colorless gas that is virtually undetectable to humans. It is released into the home by the decay of uranium, usually found in the building’s foundation. At high levels radon is extremely dangerous and carcinogenic. After cigarettes, radon is the most common cause of lung cancer in both Europe and the U.S. At Right Way Home Inspections, we are both knowledgeable and skilled in conducting radon testing and believe it to be one of the most important aspects of home and building inspections.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, one in 15 homes in the United States contain unsafe levels of radon.
Fortunately, radon testing and mitigation is now easier and more accurate than ever.
At Right Way Home Inspections, we set a top-of-the-line radon continuous-testing monitor. We use Sun nuclear testing equipment for our radon sampling. The building or property being tested will need to be closed for 12 hours during testing. After 48 hours, we obtain the test equipment and the results. If the radon inspection indicates that your home contains unsafe levels, Right Way Home Inspections will consult with you about the variety of methods for mitigating the radon and reducing the health risks for you and your family. A full report is provided after the inspection is complete.
Once the risk to your home has been reduced, periodic follow up tests are always recommended for homes with high levels of radon.
Don’t delay, have your home tested for radon. For a service estimate or quote call us today. Testing may be as low as $110.
UNDERGROUND SEWER SCOPING
Understand the Condition
As part of our independent inspection services, Right Way Home Inspection facilitates video inspections of a home’s sewer line also known as a sewer scope. Understanding the condition of the underground sewer drain line and knowing the extent and location of a particular problem will be a key part of your decision in purchasing a home. This same independent and unbiased information also applies to current homeowners who suspect that they have a problem and need to be prepared before hiring a contractor for repairs.
We are also able to determine where a sewer line defect is located in the yard or street and can mark it for you if needed for excavation and repair.
Don't underestimate the importance of having a sewer scope done as part of your home inspection. In most municipalities, homeowners are responsible for any problems in the sewer line that are on their property out to the street. Repairs can be messy and costly. Call Today!
UNDERGROUND TANK LOCATING
Find that Underground Tank
Underground Storage Tanks can be located in asphalt driveways, parking lots, grass areas, near buildings, behind garages, and just about anywhere you can imagine. We often shake our heads in amazement trying to figure out “what were they thinking” when we discover the location of some of these tanks.
If your underground storage tank is shallow enough, you can locate the UST with a common metal detector. If your tank is deep, however, you may need some more specialized equipment. We typically locate all underground storage tanks with our Aquatronics A6 Tracer or ground penetrating radar or a combination of the both.
