SPS Inspections Frequently Asked Questions
When you hire SPS Inspections to perform your home inspection services, have some peace of mind knowing that any home inspection is performed by an InterNACHI certified professional home inspector. The American Society of Home Inspectors is another national home inspection certifying organization in the home inspection industry, but certifying with more than one organization is not needed, and we truly believe InterNACHI to provide superior support and services to their member inspectors!
At this time, SPS Inspections does not carry a pest inspection license and as such we are unable to make observations or perform any visual examinations specifically for termites, nor are we able to identify termites or any other specific type of pest in the written report.
We can, however, speak generally to “wood destroying organisms” when pest-related damage is found in the home. With this information, depending on the current condition of the home and the affected structural components, you can have a pest professional come out to perform repairs to the damage and remediate any remaining infestation.
At SPS Inspections, all of our professional home inspection services are performed by a licensed home inspector. In Washington State, all inspection companies or certified home inspectors are required to be licensed to perform a professional home inspection in the state of Washington.
The systems or components of the home that are inspected by us during any given inspection depend largely on the types of homes that are being inspected, as well as the condition of the property.
For example, if the physical structure of the roof at the time of the inspection seems to suffer from safety issues, then chances are the roof will be inspected either from a ladder or from the ground rather than having the inspector walk the roof if it is in an unsafe condition.
The time it takes to finish an inspection report is also largely dependent on the type of home being inspected. A smaller home will likely take less time than a larger home, and a house with more defects and problems is likely to take longer than one without as many defects or issues.
How comprehensive the inspector also plays a part in determining the time it takes to finish the inspection report – Does your inspector examine every element of the electrical system, or only a majority, etc.
With SPS Inspections, your home inspection report will be done and delivered within 48 hours from the inspection. If there is any reason you need to get the report sooner, please just let us know and we will always do what we can to work with our clients.
Whether you have bought a hundred houses or are a first time home buyer, we will work with you to make sure you get the home inspection services you need – even your real estate agent will love us! Home loans or cash purchase, it doesn’t matter to us how you are buying the home either, so give us a call today to schedule your next home inspection with SPS Inspections!
Yes, residential septic tanks are required to be inspected at certain times. Essentially, there are just two instances in which the state or local public health authority requires a septic tank inspection.
The first instance is every one to three years, but no more than every three years to have your septic tank professionally inspected.
The second is anytime a property changes hands, i.e. anytime a house with a septic tank is purchased or sold, it is required to have that septic tank inspected by a licensed and certified professional.
At this time, SPS Inspections does not perform inspections on septic systems, nor do we offer any other ancillary septic services for homeowners, buyers, sellers, or otherwise. If we do start offering septic tank inspection services, we will update our services as soon as possible, so make sure to check back if you are in need of septic services!
Radon is an invisible gas that is harmful to people and enters a home through its basement or crawl spaces.
For now, SPS Inspections does not offer radon testing or radon inspection services. This is possibly something we will offer in the future, but not right now.
If you believe radon to currently be a problem in your home, we have an excellent article with information and tips on choosing from the various radon mitigation systems available and the remediation of radon from your home.
