Why Schedule a Specialty Home Inspection

You have heard the common phrase,

“Out of sight. Out of mind.”

Many elements in the home that contribute to problems cannot be seen by the naked eye, just because it cannot be seen does not mean it isn’t there. Some of the more damaging issues that homeowner’s face are mold problems, well-water contamination, termite infestation, and Radon Gas (which is life threatening). In order to know if your new home or current home has any of these problems, you will need to schedule a specialty inspection.

Mold Inspections

Mold exists in homes that have incurred a water leak somewhere, or has moisture problems. Mold cannot grow unless there is moisture. When mold starts to grow it actually floats in the air, it cannot be seen, but often comes with a musty scent. If you start smelling something musty, it is time to get a mold inspection.

Major health issues arise when mold gets out of hand inside the home. Mold leads to allergen problems, with strong hay fever like symptoms. If struggling with constant allergies, it is best to consult a physician, and to have a mold inspection to determine if that is a root cause to the allergen problem.

Well Water Inspections

Many homes in the Central Florida area are not connected to city water, but to well water. Although, well water does not cost, it does have the possibility of high mineral, bacteria, or chemical contamination. Before buying a home with a well, it is always a smart choice to have the water tested, and to find out when the last time the well pump was changed.

Water is life giving and a necessity. Some common problems that occur with well water are high iron content. If that is the case, when washing it could turn clothes the color of rust and it is not safe to drink. Check the water before purchasing.

Termite Inspections

Termites are wood eating insects that can damage the home without you even knowing it is happening. They often damage from the inside leaving the outside still intact. A few things a homeowner can do to prevent termites, or identify that they are already inside the structure. Check any wooded decks for signs of mud tubes, do not leave wood items like firewood close to the home, and contact on Central Florida Building Inspectors, Inc. to identify if termites are damaging the home.

In summary, many components in the home cause damage without the homeowner even being aware of it. The quickest and most effective way of determining if your current home or new purchase has any of the above-mentioned problems is to schedule a specialty inspection today.
