My client used the company for their home inspection during their due diligence period. Jeremy and his partner were very kind and accommodating with answering questions. The report was very thorough and I like that they also note positive things about the homes in their report as well and not just what's wrong with the house. You can read the good and the bad.

I would like to recommend Brandon for his excellent job during the inspection. He is very professional, thorough and is an expert in his field. I enjoyed his partnership during inspection, the knowledge he shared of the risks of certain issues was incredible. I am very glad that he inspected the house for us and wishing him more success in future.

Thorough knowledge of items addressed in report. Home inspector was able to communicate any issues found with buyer and help explain the different items and their severity.

The inspector Frank came to our house to inspect the deck and provide a list of safety problems. While he was there we asked him to take a look at some termite damage in the attic.  When he went to the attic he spotted problems with a squirrel infestation requiring immediate action to correct for chewed wiring and unsanitary conditions.  We were unaware of this problem.  Frank provided a comprehensive inspection report in PDF format including multiple photos showing deck post deterioration, sagging joists and yes even a picture of the live squirrel in the attic. Frank is totally professional, knows his area of expertise very well and offers sound recommendations on how to correct problems without spending money for unnecessary improvements.  For example he told us the ledger board was in good shape and did not have to be replaced, only secured to the house wall with additional bolts. The small amount we paid for the inspection was well spent because the inspection will end up saving us money in the long run.

This was my first experience with Atlanta Property Inspections. Alex Sozonov was my inspector. Very oriented details and willing to explained all questions with professional knowledge. Report came into my email box late night. Clearly, it has been covered all details. Plus, show up on time.

WOW! I can't even make this story up. In this very crazy market (June 2021) it seemingly takes 2 week closing (sometimes with *0* days due diligence!) to purchase a home. Anyway, Frank came recommended by another very reputable inspector, and I was fortunate he came!! The home we were looking at for my mother was a 1975 build and within 1 hour of the inspector being there a FIRE from an electrical panel broke out! Frank contained the fire, and was SO calm, had his team address the matter, was in touch with the agent and homeowner. He said in over 20+ years of him inspecting homes nothing like this had ever happened. Anyway the inspection was VERY thorough and Frank handled all matters very professionally. We will be working with Frank and his team on any home inspections in the future. I highly recommend!

Have used Atlanta Property Inspections several times for my buyers.  Their team is always very thorough and educational for the new home owners.  Much information is shared about past/current codes, potential issues and how to have the issues repaired.  I will continue to use Atlanta Property Inspectors for future inspections, and my clients have been very happy with their services as well!

Dustin was very knowledgeable and friendly and made my client feel confident in his explanations.  He was quick to point out the positives of the home he was inspecting.  His report was delivered within 18 hours of the inspection and had plenty of photos and very easy explanations in laymen's terms. I highly recommend Atlanta Property Inspections.

4 Common Myths About Mold

Although mold is a common problem many homeowners face regularly, there are many misconceptions and myths about mold. Since many websites on the internet aren't very reliable when it comes to separating between reality and myth, we have prepared this mini guide for you so you can understand the health implications of mold better, and if you find it in your house, you will know which

Mold Is Always Visible

Of course, the most crucial point in mold removal is early detection. So, wouldn't it be great if you could enter a place and immediately see the mold? Unfortunately, mold isn't visible to the naked eye most of the time, and detecting it requires more knowledge. You should look for signs using all five sense organs to detect mold. For example, watch out for musty smell, flaring up in your allergies, moisture, and weird smell from your A/C unit.

Bleach Kills Mold

Bleach is indeed helpful in killing many different microorganisms, including bacteria and viruses. However, it doesn't kill the mold. Many websites on the internet would give you recipes about how to remove mold with bleach. When you pour bleach on mold, it will seem as if it disappeared, so you will think you were able to get rid of the mold. However, the bleach doesn't kill the spores of the mold, and in no time, mold will appear again.

There Shouldn’t Be Mold In Your House At All

Expecting no mold at all in your house is a utopic idea. Until it reaches the dangerous level that causes health problems, it is perfectly normal for your house to have mold in small amounts. There's no point in saying it shouldn't be in your home because mold is a type of fungi. Fungi is a very ancient microorganisms humans have learned to live with since the beginning of history. So, of course, there might be mold in your home; it just shouldn't reach a certain level. In that case, you will have to call professional home inspectors, which brings us to our next point.

You Can Get Rid of Mold On Your Own

Although there may be some at-home remedies for mold on the internet, you should never try to get rid of mold in your ways. According to Environmental Protection Agency, if the area the mold covers is bigger than 10 square feet, you should always leave the job to the professionals. You shouldn't expose yourself to the mold. So, if you are suspicious of growing mold inside your house, first call a reliable home inspection company so they can test for mold and they can guide you on where to find reliable mold removal services in your area. Luckily, Atlanta Property Inspection offers mold inspection services and can advise you on what to do next if there's mold in your house.
