A Health and Wellness Check-up for your Home

Leaky faucets no date   Just as health and wellness check-ups are recommended for patients, so is a routine  maintenance program  for the home. The Atlanta home inspector has compiled a list of interior maintenance options. We realize that in today’s fast-paced society, it may be difficult to do all of this alone. IHI Home Inspections is available to help inspect these items if needed.

  • Check for moisture evidence on ceilings and around windows – it is a good idea to specifically search the ceiling directly below bathrooms or laundry areas.
  • Check showers, bathtubs, toilets, and sinks for caulking issues, leaks, or drain issues.  Sometimes a simple fix will take care of any slow drain or loose caulking issues.
  • Check stairwells and railings to ensure safety.  Stair railing can become loose, as can pickets, so be mindful of any handrail hardware issues.
  • Check batteries in all fire and safety alarms throughout the home. Make sure that alarms are working properly. Also remember to go over the safety plan with all members of the family in the event that the alarm is activated.

All of these items can save you money and time if conducted routinely. When a home is properly maintained any issues that may arise can be caught early. This will save a lot of headache and heartache down the road. More importantly, if an issue is found early less expense may be involved to fix it. Also, large projects can be lengthy, placing stress on your valuable time.  Make sure to adopt a routine maintenance plan to keep your home healthy.

Many people think a home is a buy and forget purchase. Annual maintenance is required and in some locations semi-annual is needed.

Hi David,

Many home owners don't want to do a thing till it's a too late situation. I can't get any one around here to get a check up let alone a full blown inspection.

Have a great day in the Atlanta area.

Best, Clint McKie
