What Goes On During a Real Estate Safety Inspection?


There are many reasons to contact a plumber in Danville, CA from Absolute Plumbing and Drain, one of which is to schedule a real estate safety inspection. It's different from a home inspection in that the goal is to identify issues you'll want to correct before buying a home or moving in – or ones you'll at least want to know about ahead of time. To give you a better idea of the process, here's what happens during a typical real estate safety inspection.

Assessing All Visible Pipes

One of the purposes of a real estate safety inspection is to minimize the odds of being in need of emergency plumbing in Danville, CA. This is why the first step with the inspection process it to inspect all visible pipes to identify:

  • Existing leaks
  • Rusty or corroded pipes
  • Weak spots suggesting a pipe may leak or burst soon

Performing a Sewer Camera Inspection

One of the most dreaded plumbing repairs in Danville, CA for homeowners is anything involving sewer lines. During a real estate safety inspection, we perform a sewer camera inspection so you'll know ahead of time what shape your sewer lines are in. The results also reveal any issues that aren't clearly evident from above the ground.

Separating Minor and Major Plumbing Issues

Lastly, a real estate safety inspection involves separating minor and major plumbing issues. Minor issues are fairly easy to take care of with proper plumbing repairs in Danville, CA once you buy the house or move in.
