Before the frigid cold sets in tonight, make sure you don't have any drips or leaks at exterior hose bibs that could cause frozen/split pipes. This one should be replaced with a frost free/anti-siphon type unit.
Do you have a laundry room on the 2nd level of your home? This dryer vent at the roof was 100% blocked with lint creating a potential fire hazard; I'm sure it wasn't helping much drying your clothes either.
As we are nearing the time to start up the wood burning fireplace, check to see if you have a rain cap/spark arrestor on top the chimney flue. Even if your chimney flue is only used for a gas fireplace, HVAC or is abandoned - a rain cap is highly recommended.
Loose toilets are frequently found during inspections; look for discoloration in vinyl flooring or tile grout indicating a possible leak. During a home inspection I always check floors around toilets with a moisture meter; a little leak can do a lot of damage in a short amount of time.
Why should you have your home inspected? Because not all issues are this obvious. As a Certified Master Inspector I inspect and report on over 400 items and give your home the thorough check up needed before closing. Hire only the best!
