OUR INSPECTION PROCESS
PRIOR TO THE INSPECTION
Communicate with your realtor, home inspector, and current homeowner to schedule the home inspection.
Read and sign the inspection agreement.
Pay for the inspection.
THE DAY OF THE INSPECTION
Meet your home inspector at the home. This is not required, but absolutely encouraged!
Wear comfortable clothes.
Monitor weather so that you can prepare accordingly (umbrella, raincoat, etc.)
Your safety comes first!
While your attendance at the inspection is encouraged and welcome, there may be a few instances where the inspector asks you to remain in place or maintain a safe distance.
This may include roof inspection, crawlspaces, electrical panels, and such.
DURING THE INSPECTION
Accompany your inspector during the inspection or meet with your inspector at the end of the inspection.
You are encouraged to ask questions!
AFTER THE INSPECTION
We can test for Radon, an odorless and invisible radioactive gas that can build up to dangerous levels inside homes or buildings.
Radon is an odorless and invisible radioactive gas released when some naturally occurring radioactive materials break down in rocks, soil and water and can build up to dangerous levels inside homes or buildings.
Radon gas has been identified as the second leading cause of lung cancer, second only to cigarette smoking. Radon is responsible for about 20,000 lung cancer deaths every year.
Any home can have a radon problem. Whether your home is drafty or well-sealed, radon can still build up and get trapped inside. Radon enters the home through several ways: cracks in solid floors & walls, construction joints, gaps in suspended floors, gaps around service pipes, cavities inside walls and the water supplies are all potential sources of radon entry.
SWIMMING POOLS & SPAS
A home with a swimming pool is exciting! We will inspect the pool deck, electrical, plumbing system, surface, etc. to make sure everything works properly. This Includes:
A thorough walk-around of the pool area, looking for any issues with the pool deck and safety features.
The inspector will also visually inspect the pool liner and foundation for leaks, cracks, or other damage. The hardware in and around the pool will be checked, including drains, lights, handrails, and ladders to make sure they are properly installed and safely in place.
The inspector will inspect the pool equipment, such as filters, pumps, heaters, plumbing, timers, and any other electrical components involved in the proper pool operation.
POWERFUL REPORTING SOFTWARE
After your inspection, we will email your inspection report to you. The report will include a brief video on how to read and understand the report, like the video shown here.
Your report will help you to determine what, if any, steps should be taken next with the information provided in the report.
We are proud of the home inspections we provide through Spectora, and our inspection reports reflect our extensive training, experience, and attention to detail. Our Olive Branch home inspections (and surrounding areas) all come with an amazing inspeciton report.
