Cal Pro Home Solutions believes that our customers should have every bit of information necessary to make a wise, informed decision. Every home is unique and every customer is different. So, we offer many additional services (including some that most competitors don’t offer) to bring peace of mind when it comes to the home you’re considering. To ensure that you are fully aware of your current or prospective property’s condition, we provide the following additional home inspection services:
- Mold Inspections:
When you order a mold inspection from Cal Pro Home Solutions, we offer a visual inspection of the property for mold and its ideal growing conditions. Moisture testing is performed around all windows, doors, and toilets, and air testing is performed on each level of the home along with a sample from outdoors to create a baseline. This comprehensive approach is designed to give you peace of mind.
- Well and Septic Tank Inspections:
Well and septic systems have unique components and are not covered by most home inspections. We offer these inspections and highly recommend they be included if the home you are buying has either. The septic system inspection includes a dye test.
- Water Testing:
Water testing is typically performed if the water is supplied by a well. While there are many types of tests, the most common are Ecoli/Total Fecal, Lead, and Nitrates/Nitrites. If you are financing a home through HUD (VA and FHA), a water test may be required. If not, it is still highly recommended.
- Well Chlorination:
It is not uncommon for bacteria to be present in water samples from wells, especially if the home has been vacant. Typically the solution is to “chlorinate” the well. The process involves putting chlorine or bromine in the well and not using the water for 24 hours. This works 99% of the time, but some wells need treatment systems installed that treat the water on a constant basis.
- Pools and Spa Inspections:
Cal Pro Home Solutions offers pool and spa inspections.The pool and/or spa must be “open” to inspect them. Follow along with the pool inspector and get some tips if this will be your first experience.
- Irrigation System Inspections:
Irrigation systems can make your yard look great if they are working properly. A sprinkler head that delivers water against the house or waters the road can be harmful and/or wasteful. Since systems must be winterized during cold months, this service is only available when system is active.
- Winterization and De-Winterization Services:
Homes that are vacant during winter can have frozen pipes within 24 hours of a furnace failure. Our winterization services remove the water from the pipes and protect the drain lines with anti-freeze. We guarantee your home from frozen and split pipes and the damage that can result. This guarantee is valid as long as we de-winterize.
- Roofing Inspections:
In addition to a standard inspection, a roof inspection can be performed to better discern if sections of a roof have been damaged by water, before the entire roof is compromised.
- New Construction:
Building a new home? Our three-phase new construction inspection can ensure that the home is being built safely and correctly.
