When was the last time you had a mold inspection? If you don’t know the answer, it’s time to call Jacksonville’s most trusted Mold Inspector, True Definition Inspection Services! We provide a VISUAL mold inspection with each home inspection we do at no additional charge to the customers. Mold is a basic type of fungus that thrives on bad moisture problems or any water intrusion issues that may be going on at the property, often in places you can’t see. Any mold related issues that found in a property can decrease the value of your home significantly. Mold spores get in the air and travel throughout the property, which might cause or worsen allergies, resulting in the need for a mold inspection.

Termite control services are key to maintaining your home, especially in Florida, where the warm, humid climate makes dry wood and subterranean termites a problem year-round. Each year, termites cause billions of dollars in damage not usually covered by homeowner’s insurance. Termites feed primarily on wood but are known to consume products like furniture, books and even insulation. The first step to protecting your home is to get a comprehensive termite inspection from a licensed termite extermination professional to identify any existing damage and potential threats.

A Wind Mitigation inspection is normally recommended on any property built before 2002 and the roof has been fully replaced with a permit. A Wind Mitigation let’s the insurance company know how a property is going to stand in the means of a hurricane. Meaning what year was the roof replaced? What size nail was used to nail down the sheets of wood? What shape of roof is on the property? Are the windows, doors and garage door hurricane protected? All of these questions are equivalent to discounts that you could receive from the insurance company to lower your insurance premiums for the year. Which could result in you as the new homeowner saving anywhere between $200-$400 annually over the course of you owning your property.

Frequently Asked Questions
A home inspection gives the buyer more detailed information about the overall condition of the home prior to purchase. In a home inspection, a qualified inspector takes an in-depth, unbiased look at your potential new home to:
- Evaluate the physical condition: structure, construction and mechanical systems
- Identify items that need to be repaired or replaced
- Estimate the remaining useful life of the major equipment, structure and finishes
A home inspection will only occur if you arrange for one. FHA does not perform a home inspection. Decide early. You may be able to make your contract contingent on the results of the inspection.
An appraisal is different from a home inspection and does not replace a home inspection. Appraisals estimate the property value of the property for lenders. Home inspections evaluate the condition of the home for buyers.
If you find problems with your new home after closing, FHA cannot give or lend you money for repairs, and FHA cannot buy the home back from you. Ask a qualified home inspector to inspect your potential new home and give you the information needed to make a wise decision.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency and the Surgeon General of the United States have recommended that all houses should be tested for radon. For more information on radon testing, call the toll-free National Information Line at 1-800-SOS-RADON or 1-800-767-7326. Ask your home inspector about additional health and safety tests that may be relevant for your home, such as a mold inspection if one has not been administered recently.
It’s your responsibility to be an informed buyer. You have the right to carefully examine your potential new home with a qualified home inspector. To find a qualified home inspector ask for references from friends, realtors, local licensing authorities and organizations that qualify and test home inspectors.
