Listing or Pre-Sale Inspections in Halifax
When you are selling your home, you will most likely need to get an inspection, however, getting one before your listing can put you ahead of the game. A (pre-listing) home inspection will provide sellers with an accurate third-party view on the condition of the house prior to putting your house on the market. A home inspection eliminates surprise defects and allows problems to be corrected or at least acknowledged, prior to putting your house on the market. A pre-listing home inspection offers transparency, so the buyer knows exactly what they are purchasing.
Indoor Air Quality Testing
Breathe Easy with Specialty or Add-on services that can be added to your Mike Holmes Inspection package, including screening for radon gas, testing for mold, or Indoor Air Quality readings. For your family health & peace of mind!
Mike Holmes Inspectors use a moisture meter and infrared camera to check areas of concern for possible moisture infiltration. Testing for mold overgrowth is important as mold triggers respiratory ailments such as hay fever, nasal allergies and asthma, as well as rashes and eczema when it touches the skin. And if ingested, significant concentrations of toxic bacteria can cause abdominal cramping, diarrhea and fever. Our Premium Inspection package includes mold testing.
Some symptoms you might experience if you have mold in your home are:
- Hay fever
- Nasal allergies
- Abdominal cramping
If you have an area of concern that is not included in your home inspection package then one of our many add-on services will offer that extra protection so nothing goes unchecked. Click here for speciality home inspection services in Halifax.
