Busted! Don’t Believe These Home Inspection And Septic System Myths!
Moving into a new home should be a joyful occasion for you and your family. However, to avoid purchasing a home that has structural damage, electrical faults, or leaking plumbing, it’s wise to have a home inspection carried out by a professional before you purchase it.
A home inspector can carry out a thorough inspection, and produce a detailed report which will outline any flaws in the building. Unfortunately, many people do not take the time to have a home inspection done, as they choose to believe some myths about how inspectors work. However, falling for these misconceptions could prove to be a very costly mistake.
To help avoid getting sucked into these misconceptions, Doyle & Galdamez Home Inspection & Septic Services has flushed out some of the most widely believed myths about home inspection and septic systems.
Myth 1: A home inspector should be able to tell me everything that can potentially go wrong with the home I’d like to purchase.
A home inspector will be able to give you an understanding of the current condition of all major systems in the home, so you will be able to make an informed decision about the property that you intend to buy. However, not all home inspectors have the necessary experience to use the tools and may not know the housing standards in your area to create a detailed report.
Myth 2: All home inspectors are licensed and certified.
It’s false, as many home inspectors do not have the necessary qualifications to assess your property. You should check if the home inspector is licensed and certified, as it will give you peace of mind that your property is getting evaluated correctly.
Myth 3: Septic systems only need maintenance and do not have to be changed.
A septic inspection can ensure that your septic system will last longer by determining areas that need to get repaired, such as the tank or leaching bed. However, eventually, maintenance work will not be enough, and damage to the drain field will signal that your system needs to get replaced.
