The role of the Home Inspector in a real estate transaction could never be underestimated. Checkout this post by Clint McKie of Carlsbad. It provides us with more than enough information that should convince us to always use the services of a Hope Inspector
Asbestos dangers within the home. Inspection findings.
At Desert Sun Home Inspections, we want our clients to be safe in every way possible.
When ever we find issues with a hazardous materials within or outside the home we list this in the report for the buyer to be fully aware the issue is there and needs to be addressed.
Asbestos was used in the manufacturing of a lot of home products throughout the years. When it was determined that asbestos caused cancer in humans it was discontinued and has been abated from many homes. But the real threat of contamination continues with a lot of homes.
The homes that have asbestos need special attention when it comes to handling the asbestos.
Asbestos can be found in siding, roofing materials as well as piping insulation and vent pipes.
Abatement can cost a lot of money when it's done by a abatement company.
Extra caution should be taken when dealing with any asbestos material.
This home has asbestos on the piping as an insulator for the water piping within the home.
These pipes are located in the furnace room of the home.
These issues can be dealt with. It's how much do you want to pay for the abatement. It's not cheap.
Here we have a close up view of asbestos on water piping in the attic.
There are issues within almost every home. This is one that bothers me. Especially when there are going to be small children within the home after the purchase of the home.
Have a great day everyone.
