HomeMaintenance Inspections

Why is Home Maintenance so Important?

Everyone understands the importance of medical checkups and regular automotive service; however, home maintenance is often overlooked. The maintenance inspection is designed to give you early detection of unknown problems with your home. That is key to protecting your family and home.

Moisture and water penetration through roof, windows, and doors can lead to costly damage to the structure of the home without early detection.
If heating and HVAC systems do not have proper airflow, it will place unnecessary strain on your furnace that could shorten its lifespan and even cause an unsafe environment.
Even small electrical issues have the potential to be dangerous and cause appliances and electrical service throughout the house to become unsafe and a fire hazard.
Unnoticed problems with plumbing could result in water damage, mold, and fungus growth causing the wood structure to decay, unwanted odors, and an unhealthy living environment.

These are some reasons why annual maintenance inspections are so important. Home Inspections allow the homeowner to monitor and detect problems before they become a financial burden or safety hazard. Inspections will help keep your home in good condition and prevent any long-term and expensive damage from minor issues that should be addressed immediately.
