Easy To Do List to Shorten the Inspector’s Report

 

Quick & Easy To Do List . . .

 

  • Replace all dead light bulbs including attic light.
  • Any light fixtures or fans that the pull chains are missing, replace them.
  • Fans that wobble. Home Depot/Lowes has a $3 balancing kit and takes just a few minutes of your time.
  • Replace batteries in all battery operated smoke alarms that are not working.
  • Caulk (neatly) bathtubs where tile meets tub & vertical corners if needed.
  • Caulk fixture controls & spout to tile to prevent water from getting behind the wall.
  • Put all window screens in place.
  • Change air filters associated with heat & air systems as needed.
  • If you are using decorative ceramic logs in your fireplace, you should have an inexpensive clamp on the damper to keep it from closing fully
  • If you suspect or are aware of a dirty fireplace flue have it cleaned.
  • If the outside air conditioning fan coil is dirty (usually the side against the home) clean it. Some designs require a professional but many can be cleaned by using a vegetable brush by gently stroking the dirt away from the coils & then rinse off. Only do this when equipment is turned off at the disconnect (which is near the coil).
  • Built in vacuum system – empty the filter.
  • Cut tree limbs back from roof three to six feet from the home.
  • Clean the gutters.
  • Loose balcony or stair railings should be tightened.
