Please Note * At the time of the Inspection please make sure that if possible that you have the electric, water and heating systems on to be able to properly inspect all systems. Please ask the sellers to cage or remove all small animals that may escape during a home inspection. I welcome a buyer who wants to follow me around during the inspection and in fact I prefer it so that I can explain things that will be in your home inspection report, so that you will better understand what needs to be corrected. The only time I ask that a client Not follow too closely is during a septic inspection, as the fumes can be very toxic and there are dangers involved.  After the Real estate inspection, I ask that you read over the entire report and call if you have any questions about anything that you are not clear on. Any items that I have listed on a report as a defect, I will gladly re-inspect after the seller or you, yourself have it corrected to make sure it has been done properly. There is no cost for the re-inspection but I may ask for gas. I also have a policy of trying to always be by my phone. As a customer, nothing has bothered me more than having someone who wanted to get a sale stand by the phone 24/7 and then after they received the money they avoided me or after the job was done they were never available. For this reason, I take pride in always being there when someone tried to reach me. I have had home buyers call me a year after their home inspection to ask if their electrical panel was big enough for a new room they wanted to add on their home or if I knew a handyman who could do some remodeling they wanted and I am pleased to offer my help well after the job has been completed.  I have NEVER had a complaint on the better business bureau site, with home advisor, Porch site, with thumb tack or on Angie‚Äôs list only great testimonies and I intend to keep it that way by providing the best service possible always.
Why Septic inspections by professionals are important  -Septic tanks are constructed as single or double compartment tanks made of concrete, metal or plastic. Each compartment has a lid at the top to provide access for periodic pump-outs. Each lid typically is covered by 6 inches to 3 feet of soil material. The soil material covering each access lid must be removed to be inspected. To prevent injury, the access lid(s) should only be removed by a licensed septic inspector
( Like Me). A septic tank is a confined space and contains gases that can be deadly. Never climb into or enter a septic tank no matter how much fun it may look like .
Several things to get the best use of your septic tank : Don't use garbage disposals or pour cooking grease, oils or other materials like paper towels, sanitary hygiene products, condoms, cigarettes or plastics into your septic system. These materials can overload your tank and end up clogging your disposal fields. Be careful with the amount of non-biodegradable chemicals used in your septic system like detergents, bleach, fabric softeners and paints. A septic system is a natural living environment, so you want to limit chemical use as much as possible. Practice water conservation by washing full loads of clothes, fixing leaky faucets and running toilets, and installing low-flow plumbing fixtures. Don't drain swimming pools or hot tubs into a septic system. The more water you pump through your system, the more stress you put on it. Septic tank additives have not been proven to be effective and are not recommended for use in septic systems. When landscaping, make sure plants and trees are compatible with your septic system. Roots can damage pipes and clog the drain field. Grass is the best type of cover. These simple practices allow your system to operate at its best and can greatly extend the life of your septic system.
