We all want to be healthy. We spend time, money, and effort going to doctor visits for routine checkups even when we have no visible symptoms or conditions. We take supplements, exercise, and seek out foods that fuel our wellness. We ultimately value our bodies and overall health, so we make a point to access preventative care.
The same is true of our vehicles. With an investment at that level, who wouldn’t want to make sure the vehicle is well-maintained and properly cared for? Our modern vehicles even have various sensors built into them to notify us when there may be a problem so that we can get it addressed. As we board our cars for a journey, we always check the engine system and petrol to ensure the quality of our travel.
But unlike vehicles that come with a user manual and alerting technology, or the access we have to doctors to consult about our physical health, homes do not have many preventative mechanisms to alert you to needs or maintenance and are often altogether neglected. We must provide the same amount of care to our house to increase its durability. Of course, like most homeowners, you want to take good care of your home and create a safe and hospital environment for everyone. We spend money, and effort to keep our homes looking beautiful and feeling welcoming. But how often does your home have access to this kind of routine maintenance and care?
Why Does a Home Evaluation Matter?
It is common to have a standard home evaluation performed before buying a home. However, once we have settled into our dream homes the process of maintaining that condition often begins to fade. Our 100+ Point Home Evaluation will let you know about the major and minor faults and damages to your property. Knowing what potential hazards exist can help save you money and keep your family safe.
The various aspects of the home evaluation process are important in evaluating the health of the property. Let’s examine some common points and see how homeowners benefit:
This consists of holistically examining the exterior of your home and the spaces that are often less tended to. The walls, garage, roof, and porches get checked for any existing damages. Structural and preventative safety checks in the event of oncoming weather hazards. There can be many points to an exterior evaluation depending on the size and nature of the property. After the evaluation gets completed by the home inspector, a customized report is generated you are then notified accordingly.
Includes a wide range of evaluation points from the plumbing and electrical systems, to hidden mold exposure, to leaks or damages, etc. The property advisors take notice of the electrical appliances of the house, the drainage system, and the flooring. The windows, doors, and ceilings are examined.
Indoor air quality can significantly affect the environment inside your home. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), our indoor environment can be two to five times more toxic than our outdoor environment. In some cases, the air inside your home might be 100 times more polluted than the air outdoors.
Mold can cause serious health concerns in both adults and children. It has been shown to cause breathing conditions such as asthma and even lead to a compromised immune system. The mold test and lab analysis will differentiate between the different varieties of mold growing inside the house and ensure safety measures for your sustainability.
Heating, Ventilation and Air conditioner
A home advisor will take a reading from your air conditioner. He will often look at any existing issues as well as preventative maintenance requirements considering potential breakdowns that could come with your current units.
Suppose the property advisor suspects some plumbing issues that create hindrances in the water systems, such as galvanized water pipes, leaks, or other damages. In some cases, the damage may be severe enough necessary for you to contact a plumber who can effectively resolve these issues. As pipes become extremely clogged over the years, it is essential to repair the pipes’ condition as needed.
Sewage is often overlooked but can lead to unfortunate long-term issues if not properly maintained. What often begins as an unpleasant smell, can quickly devolve into expensive repairs that seem never-ending. A property advisor will examine the current condition and functionality of your home sewage as well as evaluate needs for any immediate fixes.
If the area you live in has the potential to face natural disasters, it is highly recommended for you to have a disaster/safety evaluation. Windows, hurricane shutters, and door installations are all important to consider as well as other components. Additionally, it is important to have smoke and carbon monoxide detectors as well as fire extinguishers on each floor of the home.
Hazards of not getting a home evaluation
You may be thinking that having a home evaluation can be of no immediate use to you, but on the other hand, if not done timely, it can pose a serious risk to the health of you and your family. Most homeowners have little awareness about the potential health and safety risks they may be exposed to.
*Viruses including Covid-19 can thrive in homes that are not properly maintained and cared for. Autoimmune issues such as Lupus and Fibromyalgia can easily develop from mold exposure and other harmful contaminants in the air and water.
