Our Home Inspector will review the detailed report with you to make sure you understand everything and answer any remaining questions.

Pre-Purchase Inspection

A home inspection is a visual process where all of the items typically used within a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. Doors and windows are opened and closed, roofing materials inspected, air-conditioning and heating systems operated. The Inspector will fill the sinks and tub(s), run the shower(s), and flush the toilets. All the while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested. Upon completion a report will be distributed to you.

Mold Testing

There are many areas in every home where mold growth can be hiding. A professional mold inspection can help you identify those areas where mold is actively growing in your home. Mold inspections will often reveal multiple areas of mold contamination which effectively have a cumulative effect equal to that of a very large area.
Mold and moisture inspections are always recommended even when mold contamination is not present in a building. These inspections are performed for individuals suffering from health problems believed to be related to poor indoor air quality, as well as, during real estate transactions, and litigation between buyers/sellers, tenants/landlords, or claimants and insurance companies. Because indoor mold is a direct cause of so many health problems, a mold inspection is a wise investment for everyone, not just those who are already suffering symptoms.

Radon Testing

Radon is a cancer-causing natural radioactive gas that you can't see, smell or taste. Its presence in your home can pose a danger to your family's health. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and the second leading cause of lung cancer in America. The U.S. Surgeon General and EPA recommend that all homes be tested for the presence of radon. Insight Home Inspection Services, LLC in Knoxville Area is a qualified radon testing service, having completed the Radon Measurement Operator Proficiency course. We use measuring devices that are placed in the lowest level of the residence for a period of 48 hours, with the results available at the end of the test.

WDO (termite) Inspections

Wood destroying insects and other organisms can cause serious problems in the wood structural components of a house and may go undetected for a long period of time. A termite inspection is included in all our home inspection packages, saving you money and time in one appointment.
Insight Home Inspection Services, LLC starts with a full termite inspection which includes visual and probing methods. We will look for termite mud tubes, tunnels, and wings on window ledges, door frames, and in boiler rooms. Termite damaged wood beams, joists, and wood support columns in your basement and garage are also inspected.

Pool/Spa Inspections

A beautiful-looking pool should not fool you into thinking everything is okay. You need to have peace of mind knowing, for instance, that the pool is properly plumbed, that all equipment, skimmers, lights are working properly, and that GFCIs are properly installed. You need to avoid being caught off guard if costly repairs are needed. A pool inspection is money and time well spent.
What is included in a pool or spa inspection? The condition of all accessible components of the pool, equipment and surrounding environment are evaluated, including a safety checkup of the pool and pool area. We note the condition of the pool walls, coping, stairs, skimmers, diving board, ladders, filter and multiport valve, pump and motor, chlorinator, heater, automatic cleaner, underwater lights, time clock, valves, fencing, decks, winter cover and spa if applicable.
