In this blog post, we will discuss why you should consider adding these services to your standard home inspection.

Our Standard Home Inspection

At Best Inspections USA, our standard home inspection includes a thorough examination of your home’s interior and exterior components. This comprehensive inspection covers:

  • Roof, attic, and insulation
  • Exterior siding and trim
  • Foundation and structural components
  • Electrical, plumbing, and heating/cooling systems
  • Doors, windows, and interior spaces

After the inspection, you’ll receive a detailed report with clear explanations and high-resolution photos, highlighting any issues or potential concerns. Our standard inspection provides a solid foundation for understanding your home’s condition, but for even greater peace of mind, consider adding these three essential services.

1. Sewer Scope

A sewer scope is a valuable addition to any home inspection, particularly for older homes or those with mature trees nearby. This service involves using a specialized camera to inspect the condition of your home’s sewer line, which can reveal issues such as:

  • Cracks or breaks in the pipe
  • Tree root infiltration
  • Blockages or obstructions
  • Sagging or bellied pipe sections

Identifying and addressing these issues early can save you thousands of dollars in repairs and prevent unpleasant sewage backups in your home.

2. Radon Testing

Radon is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless radioactive gas that occurs naturally in the ground. Long-term exposure to high levels of radon can cause lung cancer, making it crucial to test for its presence in your home. Our radon testing service includes placing a continuous radon monitor in the lowest livable area of your home for at least 48 hours. After the testing period, we’ll provide you with a detailed report on the radon levels, along with recommendations for mitigation if necessary.

3. Water Quality Analysis Inspection

Ensuring that your home’s water supply is clean and safe for consumption is a top priority. Our water quality analysis inspection tests for contaminants such as bacteria, nitrates, and lead. This service is especially important for homes with private wells, where water quality can be more variable than in municipal water systems. If issues are detected, we’ll provide recommendations for treatment or filtration to improve your water quality.

Choose Best Inspections USA for Your Home Inspection Needs

In conclusion, adding sewer scope, radon testing, and water quality analysis inspection services to your standard home inspection can provide invaluable insights into the safety and health of your home. These additional services can help you avoid costly repairs, protect your family’s health, and ensure that your home is a safe and comfortable environment.
