As a homeowner, preparing for a home inspection from your insurance carrier is critical to maintain the safety and well-being of your home. To help simplify the process, Orion180 offers a do-it-yourself virtual home inspection option. Here are the steps you can take to prepare for your virtual home assessment with Orion180:
Clean and Declutter Your Home
A clean and organized home makes it easier for the inspector to assess your property’s condition and identify potential issues. Take time to tidy up the interior and exterior of your home, including cleaning windows and removing any obstacles that could block the inspector’s view.
Make Necessary Repairs
Prior to the inspection, fix any leaks, cracks, or damage to your home. This will help demonstrate that you take good care of your property and could potentially result in lower insurance rates.
Check Home Appliances and Systems
Make sure all appliances and systems, including the HVAC, electrical wiring, and plumbing, are in good working order. If any issues are discovered, make the necessary repairs or replacements.
Provide Access to All Areas
Ensure the inspector has access to all areas of your home, including attics, basements, and crawl spaces. Provide keys or codes for locked or secured areas and make sure all obstacles, such as furniture or boxes, are moved to allow for a thorough inspection.
Review Relevant Home Documents
Provide the inspector with any relevant documents related to your property, including previous inspection reports, maintenance records, and warranties. This information can provide valuable insight into the history of your home and help identify any potential issues.
