Is Your Home Feeling a Little Down
Is your home feeling a little down?
It may be time for a maintenance check-up.
A maintenance inspection is essentially the same as a standard home inspection, but the inspection is done for the current owner. Think of a maintenance inspection as a checkup visit to the doctor or dentist that need only happen every five years or so. A maintenance inspection will help to prioritize a home improvement list, and to hopefully find out about small problems before they turn into big ones. We as home inspectors are not there to sell anything. We’re just there to give unbiased, accurate information.
There’s no purchase agreement or non-invasive language , we dont have those kinds of limitations with a maintenance inspection. So If your furnace or a/c isn’t running quite right, your water heater needs attention, you have moisture issues in the basement, or you may want to know the condition your roof is in, then a maintenance inspection will be the answer your looking for. Contact me today to schedule you maintenance inspection. John Richter 262-483-8369
Hows the air quality in your house?
Have you had your home checked for Radon?
Have you checked the air you’re breathing? If you haven’t, you need to. In the middle of your clean and updated house, you may be breathing in harmful chemicals. Not only is radon odorless, it’s also colorless, making it a major double threat. Don’t think lung cancer only happens to smokers, because that isn’t true. In fact, radon is the largest source of lung cancer in non-smokers.
It can be in basements, crawlspaces. Did you know that some amount of radon can come from ordinary things around your home? Your countertops, for example. Concrete, granite, and other materials may release small amounts of radon into the air, so you need to make sure they’re not pushing you to unhealthy limits.
Radon is all over the United States, not just in a specific area. So you can’t rule out your chances of radon exposure based on geography. It is smart to have a radon certified Home Inspector test for radon because the issue is fixable. If you discover unhealthy levels of radon, you can take action to make your home safer. Most tests you buy from the store take 48 hours to and then you need to send the test to a lab and it can take up 4 or 5 days to get results and these test kits are not nearly as accurate as the radon monitor a professional Inspector uses.
