Getting The Most Out Of Your Home Inspection

Whether you get your home inspected once a year or once every several years, chances are, you’re looking for any way you can to get the most out of it as possible. Although you probably call HVAC technicians, electricians, plumbers, and other professionals regularly to maintain your home, home inspections are a great opportunity for you to get a general idea of the overall condition of your home and how safe it is for your family to live in. Services like radon testing, air quality testing, and thermal imaging all contribute to your overall well-being so read on to find out how to make the most of them.

Don’t Be Afraid To Ask Questions

Home inspectors have one job: to make you aware of the condition of your home and ensure you have the means to fix any issues that could be compromising your safety or well-being. As the homeowner, this means you’ll want to ask any questions you have so that you’re clear on everything that needs to be addressed. Don’t worry, your home inspector won’t be offended or annoyed by you asking questions — if they are, you chose the wrong one!

Take Notes

Although your professional home inspector will take the time and care to fill out a full home inspection report for you and go over it with you when he/she is done, it doesn’t hurt to follow along and take notes as they go. This could be reminders or projected cost estimates for any repairs you will need following the inspection.

Take Pictures

Another effective form of note taking is to document any areas of issue using a digital camera. Pictures might also be helpful in explaining to any electrical specialist, plumber, or HVAC technician what issue you’re having. Most people have pretty good cameras on their phone so this may be your best option.

Hire The Right Inspector

One of the best ways to get the most out of your home inspection is to simply call the right home inspector in the first place. There are many home inspectors out there claiming to be professionals, however, they have no certification nor the necessary training to prove it. If you hire a home inspector like this, they’re most likely going to miss something and not provide you with your money’s worth. What’s worse is that your home will not be protected and you won’t have a good idea of the condition your home is in.

What Is Radon Poisoning?

Radon is a radioactive gas that is produced when radium, uranium, and thorium are broken down in the ground, typically in water, soil, and rock. Since radon gas is invisible, tasteless, and odorless, it can be a huge threat to homeowners who are unaware of its presence in their home. Exposure to high levels of radon can lead to radon poisoning, which can have serious health implications. In this blog, we’re going to talk about radon poisoning and how you can prevent it.

How Are You Exposed?

Radon is produced in the ground and moves up into homes, offices, and other buildings. It is often found in places where ventilation is poor like damp basements or mines and in buildings that are well insulated or very tightly sealed. Some buildings may also be built on soil that contains a lot of radium, thorium, or uranium which can also contribute to the production of radon. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, around one out of every 15 homes has high levels of radon. In these homes, the basement and first floor contain the highest levels of radon. Symptoms result when the gas is breathed in.

Symptoms Of Radon Poisoning

When radon is breathed in it can cause damage to the cells in your lungs which will eventually lead to lung cancer. According to the EPA, radon in indoor air causes about 21,000 lung cancer deaths each year in the United States. Lung cancer usually results within five to 25 years of high exposure. Some symptoms of radon exposure include a nagging cough, wheezing, shortness of breath, chest pain, or coughing up blood.

Radon poisoning is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States right behind smoking according to the American Cancer Society, and only about 10 percent of radon-related cancer deaths are non-smokers. People who smoke and are exposed to high levels of radon have a much higher risk of developing lung cancer.

What You Can Do

Radon is a serious issue for many homeowners across the United States. If you suspect that you’re experiencing symptoms caused by radon, you should speak to a medical professional immediately. You should also begin testing for radon in your home. Although radon cannot be seen by the naked eye, has no smell or taste, its presence can be detected by a trained home inspector in your area.

Preventing Clothes Dryer Fires – Part 2

Hello, and welcome back to our blog. This is part two of our blog series about preventing dryer fires in your home. In our first blog, we covered what the main causes of dryer fires are, why dryer fires are on the rise, as well as preventing drying anything that has been in contact with flammable chemicals or at the very least, ensuring that they are thoroughly washed beforehand. If you’d like to learn more about this subject, keep reading.

What You Can Do About It

The Inside Of The Dryer

Many homeowners assume that their lint filters catch all of the lint that comes off of clothes, however, by simply pulling out the lint trap and looking underneath, you can see that this is not the case! Although cleaning the filter should be your first course of action, it should not be your only. But lint isn’t just found there either, it can be found in your vents and even on the heating element itself! Clothes dryer fires start with a spark, but lint buildup will make that more likely to occur.

Fire Hazards Around The Dryer

Believe it or not, it’s not just fire hazards inside the dryer itself that can result in house fires; what’s going on around the dryer also matters. First and foremost, the way the vent system was installed makes a difference. If dryer vents are too long, don’t have a dryer duct booster, or have too many bends, this could lead to more lint buildup. Instead, make sure vents are straight and as short as possible.

Avoid using foil or plastic duct extenders that are flammable and flimsy. Instead, use metal vents. These will not get crushed or bent out of place which would prevent air and lint from being removed from the system. Not only does this create a fire hazard, but it will cause the system to overheat and wear out faster than it would otherwise. Old, worn-out systems are also more likely to result in a fire.

Another important thing to note is that you need adequate clearance space between the dryer and the wall. Homeowners who move their dryer a lot may cause the venting material to get damaged. As a result, the high-temperature limit safety switch will turn on and off, which will eventually fail. It’s best to ensure the system is installed correctly in the first place, then avoid moving it around unless you need to clean it.

General Guidelines

If you want to do everything you can to avoid dryer fires, there are a few general guidelines you should follow.

  • Make sure your dryer duct is made of quality materials. Solid metallic materials are a good alternative to foil, vinyl, and other combustible materials.
  • It’s generally best to use vents with a diameter of four inches and an exterior exhaust hood of sixteen square inches.
  • Try to avoid using screws to put your vent pipe together. They can cause more friction and more lint to accumulate.
  • Don’t move your dryer up against the wall crushing the dryer duct. Instead, Dryerboxes can be used to more safely install your clothes dryer while saving space.
  • Although you can certainly try to clean your own dryer vents, the best way to ensure your system is free of lint is to contact a professional dryer vent cleaner. Dryer vents should be inspected and cleaned at least once a year. Many HVAC companies offer dryer vent cleaning in addition to their normal air conditioning and furnace services.

Part of being a responsible homeowner is knowing that there are always ways to improve the safety of your home. Although homes are designed to be safe, poor electrical installation, clothes dryer maintenance, as well as a lack of care while cooking are some of the major causes of house fires. When you give us a call at Safe Investment Home Inspections, we take into consideration anything that could cause a fire in your home and ensure that it is up to standards, allowing you to live in your own home knowing it is safe and secure. Give us a call today to get started.

Preventing Clothes Dryer Fires

In the United States, there are around 15,500 house fires, 10 injuries, and 10 deaths per year caused by clothes dryer fires according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Additionally, due to improper dryer vent setup, many people are also subject to carbon monoxide poisoning. Generally, we like to think of our homes as a safe place, and we should! For the most part, homes are a healthy and safe place to be. However, in rare instances, some concerns may arise. In this blog, we’re going to talk a bit about clothes dryer fires, what causes them, and what you can do about it.

What Causes Them?

The most common cause of dryer fires is a lack of maintenance or forgetting to change the lint filter. Remove lint from the lint screen after each use instead ever couple times. Not only is lint highly combustible, but it can also prevent your clothes from drying as quickly as they should and cause them to stink. No matter what way you look at it, keeping your lint filter clean is best for everyone.

The other aspect to clothes dryer fires is the plastic foil accordion-style duct vent behind your dryer. Sometimes lint will get built up in these ducts and cause fires so it’s important to ensure they’re both clear of debris and that they aren’t sagging or out of place.

Dryer Fires On The Rise

In the past, clothes dryers were typically installed in the basement. Now, most clothes dryers are located in bathrooms, kitchens, bedrooms, and closets. To accommodate for the shape of the home and the distance from the outer wall of the home, dryer vents tend to be longer and have more turns that allow lint to get trapped more easily. The solution is to have a shorter vent that allows lint to move through quickly without getting trapped. This will also help you to dry clothes more quickly.

What You Can Do About It

If you’re trying to clean something that has been stained with flammable chemicals like paint thinners, cooking oil, cleaning agents, or gasoline, you’ll need to take special care to ensure you aren’t creating any unnecessary fire hazards. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, if at all possible, avoid using the dryer to dry these fabrics. Instead, try hanging them outside to dry our washing them twice to ensure all of the flammable chemicals have been removed. If you do use a dryer, make sure that it’s on low heat and of course ensure the lint trap is cleaned beforehand. Be sure to check out part two of this blog series and we’ll take a look at more tips for preventing dryer fires.

What Does Thermal Imaging Do For You? – Part 2

Hello, and welcome back to our blog here at Safe investment Home Inspections. This is part two of our blog series about thermal imaging. In our last blog, we talked about how thermal imaging works as well as some of the devices that are used. Keep reading to learn about the many uses of IR cameras for home inspection.

Uses Of Thermography

Energy Loss

Energy loss is one important use of thermography in a home inspection. Thermography allows the inspector to see what walls, floors, windows, or doors are losing heat. It can also detect malfunctioning systems like air conditioners or heatings systems that may be leaking. It’s important to know these things because you could be losing a lot of energy in your home, thus costing you more on your energy bills.

Moisture

Since evaporation causes cooling, moisture can be detected with thermal imaging. This helps a home inspector locate things like plumbing leaks, roof leaks, missing or wet insulation, and water around the foundation of the home. Leaks can cause a significant amount of damage to a home in the form of water damage and mold growth. Water leaks in the basement can indicate the need for serious foundational repairs and leaks in the roof may indicate the need for a roof repair.

Heat

In addition to knowing the coolest spots in the home, it’s also important to be able to see the hot spots. This can help locate overloaded circuits, overheated electrical equipment, electrical faults, and circuit breakers that need replacement. This will not only help you prevent a broken electrical system before it happens, but it can be used to locate potentially hazardous electrical components that could result in house fires.

 

Some additional things that can be located with thermography include pest infestations due to energy loss in shelter tubes that are created by certain insects. Certain rodents like mice and rats can be seen through thermal imaging because of the heat they give off. Thermography can also detect leaking flue pipes that can result in carbon monoxide poisoning.

Interpreting Data

Anyone can simply walk into a room with a thermal imaging device and see what parts of the room are hot and which are cold. However, it’s the actual interpretation process that will reveal if there is anything wrong with the home and how it can be fixed. It takes an eye for detail when it comes to interpreting this data because the inspector must know each part of the home and how it should look through a thermal imaging device. If something is out of the ordinary, they’ll know whether something should be done about it.

Contact Safe Investment Home Inspection

As you can see, there isn’t just one use for thermal imaging. It can help a qualified home inspector spot a lot of issues [or potential issues] with a home. If you’d like to learn more about our specific thermal imaging services contact your top rated home inspection company in Denver.

What Does Thermal Imaging Do For You?

Thermal imaging is a simple process that has multiple uses when it comes to home inspection. It doesn’t take too long and it’s non-invasive, meaning it won’t get in your way. Essentially what a thermal imaging device does is takes in infrared energy from the environment and present it on a screen like a digital camera. Cooler areas are represented in blue while warmer areas are represented in red allowing the user to see hot spots throughout the home even behind walls. Without this technology, home inspections would be much more difficult and take a lot longer. Keep reading to learn about all of the benefits of having a thermal imaging inspection in your home.

In part one of this blog, we’ll take a look at how thermal imaging works and the various types of devices.

How It Works

Thermal imaging devices or IR cameras use infrared video and still cameras to measure surface temperature. The device displays light from the heat spectrum and can reveal a whole bunch of things about your home. Thermal imaging inspections can be done on either the outside or the inside of your home, but interior thermal imaging tends to be the most accurate. Often times, home inspectors will use a blower door which exaggerates any air leaks in the home and makes them more easily detectable through the IR camera.

Types of IR Camera

There isn’t just one type of IR camera out there and your home inspector may choose one or another depending on what they’re trying to accomplish with the inspection.

Spot radiometers is one of the simplest thermographic inspection devices. It has a simple meter that shows the temperature of one spot at a time.

Thermal line scanners will show the user radiant temperature along a line. The thermogram will show temperature variations along the line.

Thermal imaging cameras are some of the most accurate and reliable thermographic devices on the market. They will show a lot more detail in the image and allow for an expanded range of uses in home inspections.

Top Summer Home Safety Concerns – Part 2

 

Hello, and welcome back to our blog here at Safe Investment Home Inspection. This is part two of our blog series about major safety concerns in your home this summer. The beginning of summer is a great time to evaluate the safety of your home and plan any upgrades for the rest of the year. Contact Safe Investment Home Inspection today to learn more.

Mold

With warm weather comes a higher threat of mold infestation in your home. As a homeowner, the best way to prevent mold and mildew in your home during the summer is to take into consideration all the factors that could be creating heat or humidity there. First and foremost is your air conditioner. Your air conditioner has two purposes: to cool and purify the air in your home, both of which reduce the likelihood of mold growth. Many homeowners avoid getting their AC unit fixed before summer because they don’t want to spend the money and believe they can ‘tough it out.’

The other aspect to mold growth in your home during summer is humidity. Although Colorado isn’t known to be humid, indoor environments can become quite humid depending on several factors. One good way to prevent humidity is to always open windows if you’re running a lot of water either to take a shower or to wash the dishes. This will promote good air circulation and prevent humidity from accumulating in certain areas of your home. If you’re still experiencing issues with humidity, you may want to consider installing a dehumidifier.

Bug Infestation

One of the most common summertime annoyances for many homeowners is bug infestation. Whether it’s mosquito bites, ants, or spiders, most bugs are out in full force during late spring and throughout the summer. But before you start calling the exterminator, here are a few tips to help keep the bugs out of your home this summer.

Replace Windows and Screens

No matter how hard we try to keep bugs out, they always seem to find a way in. Although many bugs come in through pipes or the faucet, a fair amount make their way in through broken screen doors or windows. That means now is the perfect time to start looking into replacing old screens and windows.

Keep Food Stored

Although you may be able to get away with leaving food out overnight during the winter, doing this in summer will lead to some unwelcome visitors. Although it’s not common for ants to make their way into homes, when it does, it’s not a pretty sight. And it certainly isn’t a situation you ever want to deal with.

Plant Away From The House

Planting flowers or other plants up against the side of the house is basically like welcoming bugs into your home with open arms. Bees, flies, and many other bugs love hanging out near these plants and are more likely to enter through the door when it’s open or through cracks in the wall or windows. Another reason to not plant or put soil near the home is that it can contribute to hydrostatic pressure on your home’s foundation like we talked about earlier.

Top Summer Home Safety Concerns

It’s finally summer here in Colorado and you’ve probably already started planning some fun trips and activities for you and your family. But as with any change of season, it’s important to take into consideration how home safety will change. In winter and spring, the low temperatures and precipitation were probably a major concern for you. In this blog, we’re going to cover a home safety checklist so that you’re prepared for some of the hottest months of the year. Keep reading to learn more and contact Safe Investment Home Inspection if you have any questions.

Foundation

One of the biggest culprits of a damaged foundation is water or soil shifting. What that means is spring and early summer are the ideal times to check for damage to your foundation. During wet spells, the soil around your home will rapidly expand, then contract on dry days. This is your foundation’s worst nightmare as it can cause soil to shift unnaturally putting a lot of pressure on the foundation.

Warped ceilings and sagging floors are the biggest warning signs that foundation damage is already taking place. In order to inspect the foundation of your home, start by going around the exterior of your home and looking for any cracks or hairline fractures in the foundation of your home. However, since you’ll only be able to see what’s above ground level, this isn’t necessarily the best way to check for foundation damage. But it may be helpful to look for areas where water has pooled up or where the ground has shifted.

Next, go into your basement and inspect the walls. Look for any cracks, crumbling, warping, or buckling in the foundation. Depending on how your foundation was built and what material it’s composed of, the foundation will show different signs when it is damaged. However, in addition to physical damage, you’ll want to look for signs of water damage as well. If there’s any mold growth, you know that your foundation isn’t in good condition.

Basement Waterproofing

Ultimately, the best way to protect the foundation of your home is to ensure you have a system in place that will waterproof your basement. There are two aspects to this: Exterior solutions and interior solutions. Exterior refers to surface water that enters a home through the basement, permeating the foundation walls. The second is groundwater that can enter the home due to hydrostatic pressure.

The problem many homeowners face is that they don’t understand the difference between the two and therefore don’t understand what is actually causing their water problem.

Exterior Solutions

The most logical way to prevent water from entering the basement is to first ensure that water never accumulates around the home in the first place. The purpose of your gutters is to do just this: to move water a safe distance away from the home. Take a look at your gutters to make sure they aren’t clogged and that they’re carrying rainwater at least 15 feet away from the foundation. If there is a slope near your home that could cause water to move towards your home, you should consider re-grading, or installing a dry well or subsurface drainage system.

Interior Solutions

When it comes to the issue of subsurface water, the amount of water that’s trapped will vary based on the season and the amount of precipitation. The hydrostatic pressure created by this subsurface water is mitigated as a foundation drainage system. These systems have four different components: gravel, concrete, a drainage pipe, and a discharge system that is made up of a sump pump and sump basin.  

Whether you’re experiencing foundation damage due to exterior or interior problems, be sure to call a certified home inspector who will be able to identify what, specifically, is causing the issue and what waterproofing method will work best to protect your home.

These are just a few of the things you should look out for this summer in order to keep your home safe and comfortable for the rest of the year. Read part two of this blog series to learn more or contact Safe Investment Home Inspections today for a full home inspection in Denver.

Home Safety Tips For Young Children

Whether you have a kid that’s several months or years old or you’ve got another one on the way, it’s never too late to start thinking of ways to make your home fit for a small child to grow up in. Chances are, you know that young children can be curious and very energetic, but safety isn’t always the first thing on their mind, especially if they haven’t learned to walk yet. Although you’re probably planning on spending most of your time with your child, it never hurts to be too safe in case your child decides to venture off on their own while you’re distracted or working.

Keep cleaning products out of sight

Cleaning products can be one of the deadliest things around the house for young children. Every cleaning product on the market has chemicals that make them poisonous if swallowed. To us, it’s obvious that these products shouldn’t be consumed, but to a small child, all they know is that it smells good, and it’s probably sitting in a cabinet that’s about at their height. Instead of leaving them lying around after using them, make sure they’re stowed away and if you want, you can even put a padlock on your cabinets.

Cover all electrical outlets and wires

One of the most important things you can do to protect your child while they’re at home is to cover all electrical outlets with plastic covers. Young children don’t understand the dangers of outlets and they’re at just the right height to reach most of them. Plastic covers will help prevent them from getting a finger in the outlet or trying to stick one of their toys in there. If you have any appliances or fixtures with frayed wires, this can also be a safety hazard, so make sure they’re fixed before you allow your child near them.

Use gates to block stairs

Young children aren’t the best at climbing up or down stairs so you’ll only want them to attempt it when you’re with them. You should plan on blocking each staircase with a gate that can be easily opened for you to come and go as you please. Don’t forget that if you’re going to be letting your kid outside on the deck or patio, you’ll need gates for outside as well.

Clean your carpets

Think about it — your child is spending most of their time on the ground. If the floor isn’t clean, they’re going to be breathing in a lot more harmful pollutants than any fully-grown adult. Not only this, but their immune systems aren’t fully developed meaning they’ll be even more likely to get sick from an unsanitary floor. But you can’t just vacuum every day and call it good, carpets and rugs need to be professionally cleaned regularly in order to have all the allergens and harmful contaminants removed.

General home safety

In addition to all hazards that will affect your children, any general home hazard will affect your children as well as you. This includes things like poor indoor air quality that can be brought on by poor ventilation resulting in mold, mildew, and termites. Once mold and mildew are in your home, they can be very difficult to remove and can lead to serious respiratory issues.

 

Electrical wiring issues can also be a huge fire hazard if they aren’t installed correctly by your electrician. Poor electrical wiring in homes leads to thousands of house fires every year in the United States, as well as hundreds of deaths.

 

Radon is an odorless, tasteless and colorless gas that is virtually undetectable to humans. It’s also very dangerous to breathe in because it’s a carcinogen. Radon is the second highest cause of lung cancer in the U.S. right behind cigarette smoking.

Contact Safe Investment Home Inspections

When it comes to keeping children safe in your home, it’s similar to protecting yourself and other family members. The difference is that there is a lot more to worry about and small children have a difficult time understand what is a hazard and what isn’t. Aside from following the tips listed above, the most important thing you can do to protect your children is to call a home inspector who can tell you if your home is fit to raise a child in.

Common Health Issues With Homes – Part 2

Hello, and welcome back to our blog here at Safe Investment Home Inspections. This is part two of our series on some of the most common health issues with your home. Contact us today if you’d like a professional certified specialist to inspect your home.

Foundation Flaws

The structural integrity of your home is highly dependent on its foundation because this is what supports everything else in your home like the walls, floors, and roof. So if your foundation is threatened, your whole home is at risk. Flooding, high moisture, poor drainage, and expanding and contracting soil can all cause stress on your home’s foundation, eventually causing it to crack or shift.

 

The good news about foundation issues is that they’re typically more obvious than something like poor ventilation that could be causing issues without you even being aware. Poor drainage and hydrostatic pressure will cause pressure to build up around the outside of your basement or crawl space eventually resulting in cracks and leaks. Problems like this will always get worse and never fix themselves because soil is constantly shifting and swelling.

Poor Air Quality

Although mold, mildew, and termites are major culprits of poor indoor air quality, they certainly aren’t the only. Poor air quality can result from lack of circulation, a faulty HVAC system, or even human error or negligence. Believe it or not, indoor air quality can actually be a lot poorer than outdoor air quality due to it being a contained environment.

 

Outdoors, harmful pollutants are able to dissipate rather easily whereas indoors, pollutants will remain in the carpet, walls, or recirculated throughout the home. If you’re a smoker, you should note that tobacco smoke contains about 200 poisonous toxins. About 43 of these are carcinogenic meaning everyone in your home has a higher risk of getting cancer. And that’s not just people who smoke in their homes either. Just simply walking into a home after smoking is enough to spread these chemicals throughout the whole home.

 

Although we love our furry little creatures, pets can still be a significant contributor to poor indoor air quality, especially if our HVAC systems aren’t equipped to handle them. If you have the wrong type of air filter in your home, it may become too dirty to adequately filter the air resulting in poor airflow and poor air quality. It should also be noted that your HVAC system itself can sustain significant damage if air can’t flow properly through it.

 

Other things like combustion fumes, toxic chemicals, pesticides, and biological pollutants have been found indoors and you likely won’t even know they’re there unless you get an indoor air quality test. Another issue that many homeowners face is pollutants getting tracked in from outdoors and getting trapped in their carpets and rugs. This means it is absolutely essential to have your carpets professionally cleaned on a regular basis even if they don’t look dirty. Although vacuuming will certainly help to remove harmful contaminants from the carpet, it won’t get everything. Keeping windows open for a little bit each day can also help improve indoor air quality.
