Environmental Issues

Inspector Reporting InspectionThere are a number of potential home environmental issues that property buyers should be aware of, such as water quality, asbestos, lead and mold. Water testing is the most common. We will test will check pH, water hardness, the presence of fluoride, sodium, iron, and bacteria such as E-coli. We will also test for lead or arsenic. Homes built before 1978 may have lead based paint present. The radioactive gas radon is also a serious issue if present. Asbestos was often used in insulation and other building materials more than 30 years ago. Trust our professionals at Home Pro Of WNY Inc. to confirm if any of these environmental issues are present.

HVAC Issues

At Home Pro Of WNY Inc., we will inspect your heating and cooling systems. Inefficient systems can be hazardous or malfunction. Make sure your ducts and filters are cleaned or replaced regularly. Your heating system should have its filter cleaned approximately once a month. Regular maintenance on your cooling system is recommended as well. If your HVAC system runs on natural gas, make sure you know where your gas shut off valve is in case you need to close it. If you small gas, you need to immediately evacuate your home, shut off the gas valve (outside), and call to report the leak.Plumbing Fixing Appliance

Plumbing Issues

Upon a home inspection, there are many plumbing problems that may be uncovered. Leaks, clogs or drips are common issues that can be minimized with minor fixes. You need to know where the main water shutoff valve is and how to turn it off. Plumbing appliances such as sinks and toilets should be inspected so you know they are properly functioning. Easy drain maintenance is also recommended. For a full report summarizing our plumbing inspection findings, call our experts today!

Roofing Issues

Roofing problems are often the sneakiest. Leaky roofs lead to rot, mold, warping and more expensive damage. Crawlspaces, flashing and roof surfaces should be regularly inspected for water damage. Gutters and downspouts should be properly working to keep moisture away from your structure. At Home Pro Of WNY Inc., we know what to look for and where. We are highly trained to inspect your entire property throughout the Greater Buffalo, NY Area.
