Home inspection is a process that most houses must undergo before being purchased. During a home inspection, a house is examined to make sure it’s structurally sound and up to code. This can involve looking for signs of mold, radon, insect infestations such as termites, and other problems that cause significant damage to the condition of the home. Because of these potentially damaging problems, the sale of the house is often dependent on whether or not it passes the inspection. But not just any contractor can perform this duty; a qualified home inspector must be hired to give an official report of the findings.
