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.

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.

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!

Atlanta Property Inspections came to do a pre-purchasing inspection on a home my husband and  I plan to buy! We had a very short due diligence period, but that was no issue for these guys. They fit us in their schedule on very short notice and were such a pleasure to work with. Cary and Riley came to do the inspection and did a fantastic job walking us through the inspection to let us know what they found, and suggestions on how to fix all of the issues! Shout out to Cary, for answering all of our questions and having such a great personality! We truly appreciate you guys taking the time to help us through such a very stressful time. We HIGHLY recommend this company!

Frank Cooper and his team from Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc were excellent! They arrived on time  and thoroughly inspected all areas of the property I was considering renting. They found things that needed to be repaired by the landlord before we signed the lease. Frank reviewed his findings with us. He explained all of his concerns, and he patiently answered all of our questions. Then the next day I received a very detailed report that included several pictures and detailed explanations. If you want a kind, knowledgeable, and thorough inspector, don’t hesitate to call Frank Cooper with Atlanta Property. I would highly recommend him! Truly a 5 star company!

I called several companies for quotes, and I felt that Atlanta Property Inspections was the most welcoming!  Thereafter, I had a wonderful experience at the inspection. My inspector was thorough, kind, and willing to explain things and answer my questions on site.  He was very knowledgeable and very friendly.  I am glad I did not skip the inspection for this 950 square foot condo, and the review has been very helpful, during my due diligence period in evaluating this potential home.

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!

The inspector was really thorough and was patient in explaining to me what he was observing. He showed me where the shutoff valve was for the water and gave recommendations on various things. The report that was provided made sense and pictures were taken of some things that were found. The inspector was also very personable which put me at ease about asking questions. Thank you, Alex and Atlanta Property Inspections!

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.

Jeremy was the best to work with! He was on time,  very thorough in his explanations of his findings, and took time with my clients to make sure he answered all of their questions. He was detailed, and provided follow up when we needed additional questions answered. He went above and beyond! Best, quality, customer service I’ve seen in a long time! I’ll recommend him and Atlanta Property Inspections every time!

Mold Inspection: A Complete Guide

Let's start with what mold is. It's a type of fungus that produces through particles called spores. These spores tend to float in the air. They stick and spread when they find the right surface that provides the essential environment. That's when they become more dangerous. People who live in humid environments probably have a lot of experience with mold because it loves damp and humid conditions. Unfortunately, mold is associated with various health disorders, especially in the upper respiratory tract. The worst part is mold is good at hiding itself. That's mainly because it likes dark spaces. So, most of the time, it will go unnoticed by the homeowners until there's visible structural damage or constant allergies. A good way to avoid these property damages and health problems are by hiring professional home inspectors for a mold inspection.

The Process

Following is a common mistake many homeowners fall for: you see mold on a certain surface and try to clean it with agents like chemicals or detergents, and when the surface seems clean, you assume the mold is gone. Unfortunately, that's not true. That's why the diagnosis of mold should be left to professionals. During the examination, the inspector looks for common places suitable for mold growth. Additionally, they will ask you questions like if your house experienced any water damage previously that might've caused moisture in various parts of your home. So, they will try to get to the source of the moisture and eliminate that. Moreover, they will perform certain tests to ensure your home is safe in terms of air quality. If you don't see any visible mold but experience constant irritation with your eyes, nose, or other upper respiratory tract parts, or have yearlong allergies, calling a professional is a good idea.

Prevention of Mold

The best way to prevent mold is by keeping the air dry. If the air inside your house is dry, mold will not find the conditions to survive and reproduce. To keep the air dry, you can use a dehumidifier and a hygrometer to monitor the humidity levels in your home accordingly. Only partially depend on A/C and fans in your house for air circulation. Regularly open your windows and let proper air circulation take place. With the help of the experts in home inspections, try to find the source of moisture and, with the help of plumbing professionals, fix any leaks. Finally, when buying cleaning products for kitchen and bathroom services, choose ones that also have mold-killing qualities.

Before Buying a House…

Checking for mold is also one of the most important things before buying a house. Sometimes, during the step of home inspections in Suwanee, GA, mold can be overlooked, but buying a house with unresolved mold issues will create long-term problems in the long term. However, this will not be the case if you hire a professional inspector of Atlanta Property Inspection. Our team will provide you with the necessary tests and samples and advise you on the mold removal. Call us today to learn more about us!
