Smoke Detector Testing & Maintenance
I suggest replacing smoke detectors at least every 5 to 7 years, as their sensors will usually begin failing after that period (even though their alarms will continue to sound when their test buttons are pressed).
  Smoke detectors may be periodically checked for response to actual smoke by homeowners. (Try using a short candle at the bottom of a tall glass jar. The candle will tend to produce a lot of smoke due to lack of oxygen, and the jar will keep hot wax off hands and carpeting. However, if such testing is done too frequently, the smoke may prematurely coat the sensors with a film that could block their sensitivity.)
  I also suggest the installation of carbon monoxide detectors to protect all sleeping areas whenever combustion appliances are present in the home.

........Didnt know what to expect. I was so impressed. I really appreciate getting all the information that AAD provided. I was dreading it, and it turned out to be one of nicest parts of the buying process.

Home CheckUp
Home CheckUp

Your family members get regular checkups, right?
Why not your house, as well?

You already know a lot about your house ...

Because you're living in your house, you already know which
windows and doors are working correctly. You also know whether
your major plumbing fixtures and some of your major appliances
are performing okay.


... but what you DON'T know could hurt you.


You probably don't go into your crawl spaces or attics, onto
your roof, or get into your electrical panels, do you? And then
you might not know exactly what to look for if you did.


How about your HVAC (Heating, Ventilating & Air Conditioning) system?
Do you know what to look for regarding possible problems?

Do you know exactly how your exterior grading and drainage are
affecting your crawl spaces?
