Hi. We have a mystery. We've been in our house (NYS) for three years. Within the past week, in one of our rooms, there's been an accumulation of white particulate matter that floats down (we assume from the ceiling) and collects, mainly in a small (several square feet) area. The stuff looks like snow or, well, dandruff. It floats down like isolated snowflakes, but we can't see anything on the ceiling that would account for this. We had an HVAC guy come: he checked attic and AC vents in the room, but found nothing. An exterminator said he'd never seen anything like it. The stuff floats down wh ..read more

hello home inspectors! i am in the process of buying my first home in upstate NY. we have an accepted offer on a great house built in 1940 but renovated and truly move-in ready. HOWEVER, we just completed inspection and they discovered the septic system is not leaching. they quickly observed clogged drain & filled pipes - and the inspectors said there's a danger that the waste could eventually back up into the house. A flow/load test was conducted and it was observed that the effluent inadequately flowed into the leaching system. Their report stated that the system may need to be repa ..read more

Currently, I am under contract for a townhome. The drywall and kitchen cabinets are up. Recently the water from the upstairs bathroom broke into the living room and kitchen thru the ceiling. Water also leaked into the floor of the 2nd floor walk way as well. The builder is just using one regular table fan to dry it off. The ply wood flooring is considerably wet causing with decent stains and discoloration (grey green). What are my options currently? How do I approach the builder? I wasn’t informed about this by the builder, I just walked into the site and found out. Thanks. submitted by /u/w ..read more

New Home Build

We are having our new home built. We mentioned to our realtor about getting an inspection done and he tried to discourage us, saying we’d be wasting $700-$800 because the city requires several inspections throughout the build process before the builder can continue to the next stage. Is our realtor right, or should we get an inspection just in case? submitted by /u/Helpful-Guide-4365 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

I did an inspection for a guy on a pretty rundown house. Lots of basement issues, the house actually flooded a week before closing and my client backed out of it. Fast forward a month later and an electrician, friend of mine said “hate you did an inspection at a house that a friend of mine is buying and has some questions”! So I now have found out that the sellers agent is sharing the inspection. I know the buyers agent very well and he’s a really nice guy (believe it or not, I do despise realtors, but this is one of the nice ones) and he said that the client did say we can use some items for ..read more

Figured this would be a great place to ask for some assistance. Last year I got new vinyl siding and the contractor put it right over the old wood siding. No insulation in between. I didn't think of it at the time but now I'm concerned that water maybe is getting behind the siding and on the wood siding and it might be molding. I don't see signs of mold but I saw springtail bugs in my home and I heard that they are attracted to mold. Anyway, how can I test for mold behind the siding if at all possible? submitted by /u/Neither_Drive_3327 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Hi everyone, I recently completed a home inspection course that included 120 class hours and 40 hours of fieldwork. Originally, I intended to pursue this as a side hustle alongside my other businesses. However, now that I’ve finished the program, I find myself questioning whether this is the right path for me. Honestly, I’m not as excited or passionate about home inspection as I thought I would be. I’m on the fence about continuing, and I’m unsure if this is something that can be successfully pursued part-time without full enthusiasm. For those of you who are established in the field, I would ..read more

I am currently taking the pillar to post NEW EMPLOYEE TRAINING PROGRAM, with AHIT. Pillar to Post will pay for the training but it has to be completed in 3 months. The issue I am having is that I feel like 3 months is not enough to actually learn the material and pass the AHIT exam within 3 months and also know the material well enough to also pass the NHIE or Texas exam. Am I missing something? Is there any advice or information anyone can give to help? Please. submitted by /u/LongjumpingRope7896 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Sudden failures after home inspection

Incoming wall of text: My home (1500 SQ ft condo) was recently inspected as part of a sale. I was still living in the house at the time of the inspection, so I was heading out when it was about to start, so as not to interfere. On the way out, I ran into the buyer's agent, who said the inspection should take "about an hour." So I went to get lunch. When I returned after an hour, I waited in the parking lot for 20 minutes until the agent came out. She said things were taking longer than expected, but they should be done in 30 minutes at most (1hr 50 min total). I waited for 30 minutes, at whic ..read more
