Help Your Sarasota Home Inspection go Smoothly

All parties involved in the buying and selling of a Sarasota home want the home inspection to go smoothly. Here are some steps that Sarasota realtors and home sellers can take to make sure the inspection goes as smoothly as possible:

– Provide access to the property to be inspected.

– Check that the gas, water and electric utilities are on.

– Make certain that all smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are operable.

– Provide as much visibility as reasonably possible for garage walls, basement walls, attics, storage rooms, etc.

Some of this might seem like common sense, but it never hurts to double check every aspect that might be covered in an inspection. For an entire list, refer to the ASHI Reporter article here:http://www.ashireporter.org/articles/articles.aspx?id=2066

Plumbing Tip

Plumbing Tip
If an unknown odor makes you wonder if your sink’s water source is contaminated, try cleaning the sink first. Left alone, the sink’s overflow holes accumulate bacteria, but pouring a small amount of chlorine bleach down the overflow and sink drain will clear up the problem.

Cleaning Tips For Fall

Here are some great cleaning tips for all our Sarasota Homeowners from SWF Home Inspections, Sarasota home inspector.

Test all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and replace batteries as needed.
Pull your electric (not gas!) clothes dryer out from the wall; minimize fire hazard by vacuuming any lint that has collected in back and/or underneath the appliance.
Disassemble the dryer’s venting tubes and clean those out as well.
Get ready for closed windows! Ensure good indoor air quality by getting ducts cleaned and filters changed. Wash windows inside and out and vacuum screens to improve your view.
Book an appointment to have your chimneys, flues and heating appliances inspected and cleaned.
Get a jump on the holidays by sorting, organizing and pruning your supplies of seasonal decorations.

Heavy Mirror? Here’s a better way to hang it.

 

I have done this, and i bet you have too: The home inspections are done and you’re ready to start decorating your new Florida home. You work hard to hang a heavy picture or mirror  on the wall using several heavy-duty picture hooks. The picture is tough to align in just the right position because of its size and weight, complicated by the hanging wire and multiple hooks.

Then, during the night, you hear a crash. You jump out of bed to discover that the mirror has fallen. The floor has a big gouge, the frame is broken, and you’ve got lots of broken glass to pick up.

You can prevent this problem with a unique picture-and mirror – hanging bracket available at larger frame shops. This metal device comes in two parts. One bracket is attached across the back of the picture frame with a few screws. A matching bracket is screwed to the wall with long screws that reach the studs. Because the wall bracket is wider than 16 inches, it can easily be screwed into several wall studs.

Then you just hang the mirror by slipping the frame bracket over the wall bracket. It’s easy to level the frame and place it in the right location with just a few measurements when you first attach the bracket to the wall.

 

It is our goal to provide you helpful information every other week to allow you to easily, efficiently and cost effectively enjoy your home.
