Here are a few ways to help:
- Pets can hinder a home inspector. While you may feel that your pet would not hurt anyone or be a problem, this is not always the case. It is best, on the day of the inspection, to keep pets out of the way and in a secure area.
- Another simple thing that could actually change the home inspection report is if light bulbs need replacing or smoke and carbon monoxide detectors need batteries. Before the inspection, check to see if these things are working well.
- There are other factors that can prevent the home inspection from being performed thoroughly. For example, if certain areas cannot be accessed. Make sure that all areas that will require inspecting like the basement and attic as well as heating and electrical systems are not locked and that there is no clutter preventing easy access.
- Trim back trees and foliage which may be covering parts of the house. Also, try to have all repair jobs done before the day of inspection.
