Below is a list of all certified services provided by Compass Property Inspection.
A good home inspection may save you thousands when buying or selling a home by identifying potential problems before purchasing. Simply put, a home inspection is an objective visual inspection of a house. The inspector looks at the physical structure and primary systems of the home and to report on whether the components and systems are working as intended to on the day of inspection, as well as report defects that could negatively affect the value of the property and/or pose danger to someone.
Pool and Spa Inspection
Your Pool and Spa require proper maintenance and regular inspection so that you can enjoy it for years to come. Your pool service professional is only responsible for pools cleanliness and chemistry. Using a comprehensive checklist, we will inspect your pool and spa for all the other items that will ensure proper condition and function, as well as your family’s safety.
Sprinkler Systems Inspection
If not installed and maintained properly, a lawn irrigation system can create problems for the health of property’s lawn. A faulty system can lead to wasteful water use, or, worse, contamination of the home’s potable water supply. We operate the sprinkler system to check for visible leaks and proper zone positioning, pressure, and function. We inspect control panel, sprinkler heads, sensors, back-flow devices, service, and supply piping.
Indoor Air Quality InspectionCompromised indoor air quality (IAQ) is the fastest way to spread mold through a dwelling via forced air HVAC and Duct System. Unfortunately, air conditioning systems and air ducts are a common place for black mold to reside. Moisture plays a significant role in the growth of mold. Air conditioning systems can act as an incubator for black mold because of its constant change in humidity levels throughout the summer season. It can grow, proliferate, and make dwelling occupants sick without ever being seen, and dramatically reduce indoor air quality (IAQ). Air/Tape Sampling report will identify if any mold is present in HVAC and Duct System. Air duct cleaning is an easy and affordable way which will not only get rid of dirt, dust, and other particles, but it will also get rid of mold.
Mold InspectionUnchecked Mold can damage the structure of a home, cause wood rot and ruin drywall. It can also cause health problems. We will investigate any signs of past or present water intrusion which can promote mold growth. We’ll also take samples of any suspected mold for laboratory analysis.
Warranty InspectionMost builders offer a one- or two-year warranty on a new home. We’ll come out two weeks before the builder’s warranty expires and inspect the property and give you a comprehensive inspection report. Armed with this information, you can hold your builder and his subcontractors to their warranty while it’s still in force.
Maintenance InspectionThe most important thing to understand as a new homeowner is that your house requires care and regular maintenance. As time goes on, parts of your house will wear out, break down, deteriorate, leak, or simply stop working. Even the most vigilant homeowner can, from time to time, miss small problems or forget about performing some routine home repairs and seasonal maintenance. That’s why an Annual Home Maintenance Inspection will help you keep your home in good condition and prevent it from suffering serious, long-term and expensive damage from minor issues that should be addressed now. We recommend having an annual home maintenance Inspection performed annually for your primary residence and any investment properties you own.
Wood destroying insects like Termites and other pests can cause serious damage to the wooden structural components of a house. These destructive organisms can hide and go undetected for a long time, but there are many telltale signs that indicate their presence. We will inspect your home for evidence of infestation before it becomes an expensive problem later.
