What Do Home Inspectors Look For During a Home Inspection

As a homeowner, it is important to know what to look for when inspecting a home. Here at Big Moose Home Inspections, we provide both residential home inspections and commercial inspections. Commercial inspections include Real Estate Inspections and Realtor Inspections.

There are many things that can affect a home and its value, so it is important to be thorough. Here are some of the things that home inspectors look for when inspecting a home:

Condition

The first thing that home inspectors look for is the condition of the home. They will look for any obvious damage, such as holes in the walls or ceiling, or water damage. They will also look for any structural damage, such as cracks in the foundation.

Electrical System

Another thing that home inspectors look for is the condition of the electrical system. They will look for any exposed wires or any signs of overloaded circuits. They will also test the outlets to make sure they are working properly.

Pests

Home inspectors will also look for any signs of pests. They will look for signs of mice or rats, as well as termites or other insects. They will also check for any evidence of mold or mildew.

Safety Hazards

Finally, home inspectors will also check the home for any safety hazards. They will look for any trip hazards, such as loose carpets or rugs. They will also check for any potential fire hazards, such as overloaded outlets or flammable liquids.

These are just some of the things that home inspectors look for when inspecting a home. It is important to be thorough when inspecting a home, as any of these issues could potentially affect the value of the home.
