Congratulations! A Step By Step Home Inspection has been scheduled for your home. Here are just a few simple things to be aware of so that you can be prepared for the best inspection experience.
Step By Step Home Inspection is a pet friendly firm. If your pets are home during the inspection we will make sure they remain safe and
happy. You know your pets best, if a stranger on premises will
make them nervous or angry please let us know ahead of time so
we can accommodate them.
Leave the Utilities Connected
Please make sure all of the utilities are connected. During our
inspection we will need to check appliances, test the furnace and
air conditioning along with other electrical and plumbing
inspections. Without utilities, the inspector will have to reschedule
which could delay your closing process.
Keep Pilot Lights Ignited
We are also unable to light pilot lights in your home. If your pilot
lights are not lit, then important items such as the water heater, gas
stove or furnace will not be properly inspected.
Provide Workspace Around Furnace and Water
Heaters, and Electrical Boxes
Remove boxes, bookcases, furniture and anything else blocking
access to your furnace, air conditioner, water heater, and electrical
boxes. The inspector will need to be able to inspect these items.
We are not permitted to move your personal belongings to get to
Provide Access to Attic and Garage & Crawlspace
The inspector will need to get into your garage, basement,
crawlspace and/or attic as well, so please keep a path cleared.
Leave Keys for Outbuildings and Electrical Boxes
If there are any outbuildings, unattached garages to be inspected
please leave a key or garage opener for the inspector to gain
access. Please unlock the covers for your sprinkler system and
