February is the month of love, and while traditionally you may think of buying flowers and chocolate for your loved ones, we have something different in mind at Premier Home Inspection. Valentine’s Day is a great time to show some love to your home—through a yearly inspection, termite inspection, or mold air quality testing!
Most people get a home inspection when they buy their house and then not again until they sell their home. However, a lot can happen to a home in that time span that you may not be aware of. That is why we advocate for yearly inspections—to recommend any updates and repairs that may be needed and to save yourself from problems down the road.
Termites don’t love your house – they only love the moisture in the cellulose of the wood used to build your house. If you haven’t had a termite inspection in the last few years, you may consider having a professional look at your home. If left unchecked, termites can silently eat away at the structural integrity of your house. It doesn’t take long for termites to do severe damage once infested, so it is a good practice to have your home inspected often.
Mold Air Quality Testing
Mold can not only negatively impact your health but can also threaten your home’s structural integrity. Many crawl spaces, basements and home interiors in the southeast have humidity and mold issues. If not adequately mitigated, mold and fungus can deteriorate the wood structure of your home and invade your living space. Regular inspections can give you the information you need about mold in and around your home so you can take proper steps to eliminate it from your house.
Yearly inspections, termite inspections, and mold air quality testing are three ways to show love to your home this year. If you love your home, the only way to keep it in good working order is to do regular maintenance. If proper steps are taken to care for your home, you can have a wonderful place to live for many years to come. Contact us at today at 615-481-7293 or click here to schedule an appointment.
Love your home this Valentine’s Day!
