Atlanta property inspections gave me a very competitor quote and stuck to it for final pricing. They were able to get someone out to do the inspection so quickly. Frank and James were very thorough and helpful during the process they encouraged me to look at what they found, the good and bad, so I knew exactly what I am buying.  I couldn't have asked for a better inspection experience!

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.

We are relocating from out of state and we were in need of an inspection with a very tight turn around. We received incredibly thorough reporting and an availability to answer questions quickly. Cary Cooper’s professional and expert insight saved us from a potential health hazard. I would very much recommend Atlanta Property Inspection for any of your inspection needs!

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.

How to Prevent Mold In Your Home

Mold can be a serious problem that can affect one’s health as well as the lifespan of a house. However, information about mold is not commonly known. To inform everyone about them, we have gathered some information. So, throughout this article, we will go through why you should prevent mold, how to tell if your house has a mold problem, the steps to preventing mold growth throughout your home, and how Atlanta Property Inspection can help. Let’s start.

Why Should You Prevent Mold

Mold decomposes organic matter in nature. The growth of mold spores in the house means your house is about to be decomposed. The worst part about the growth of this organism in a house is that it is easily spread and can’t be prevented easily. They can grow in places you can’t see, which causes many problems for homeowners in the future. Not only does mold growth end up costly for homeowners, but it does affect everyone’s health as well. Let’s see how you can detect mold in your house.

How to Tell If Your House Has a Mold Problem

Many signs show a mold problem to a homeowner. In this section, we will list the main four.

  • If there is water inside your wall or under the carpets, these are perfect conditions for a mold to grow. See if there is a musty smell and feel the moisture.
  • If you have wallpaper on your walls and you see that the paint is starting to peel, this shows moisture in between. Check to see if you hear a strange musty odor.
  • If you have had common water issues like leaky pipes, condensation from the AC system, or water intrusions, mold growth around these areas is common. Check and see if you can get your eyes on something odd.
  • If you start to see discoloration or spores on your furniture, this can be a sign of mold growth.

Steps to Preventing Mold Growth All Throughout Your Home

Let’s go over the steps to prevent mold problems in your home.

  • Locate where the mold is. Is it in the basement? Is it commonly seen in carpets or ceilings?
  • Mold requires damp, dark, and moist areas to grow. If you can prevent them, you can prevent mold growth. Dry any moist or wet area you see around the environment quickly.
  • Proper ventilation is the key to preventing moisture. Use dehumidifiers or AC to keep the moisture out of the area.
  • Monitor the humidity of your house every single day and check to see if there is a different issue.
  • Work with an inspection company to find the root of the problem.
