Imagine working on your home to get it ready for sale. You paint, you clean, and you make upgrades. You do all of this, only to find out that the buyer's home inspector has found an issue that you didn't even know about. Now, your sale is in jeopardy.
All of this can be avoided by having a pre-listing home inspection. A pre-listing home inspection lets you find out about these issues ahead of time, and fix them before a buyer is involved. Contact us today, and we will be happy to schedule YOUR pre-listing home inspection

There are a lot of reasons to choose Hero Home Inspections for your next Orlando Home Inspection. Here are just a few of those reasons:
Mice – No one really likes to have them in their home, or even admit that the vast majority of homes of some indications that mice exist. That’s right, most homes do – whether you have seen them or not.
The average field mouse can fit through an opening smaller than a dime, and the younger mice - even smaller. So if you were a mouse outside your home in the rain and elements, where would you try to get into? That's right, your house...
For mice, being in our homes is easy for them. I tend to find them in crawlspaces, attics, and anywhere else that people don’t regularly visit. Because they are small and quiet, they go unnoticed when they steal your food, or make a nest.
When it comes to mice, mouse traps can be effective. But if you have a mouse issue like the one shown in the picture above, you may want to consult with a qualified pest control operator.

Are you buying or selling a home in Orlando with a pool? A pool is an awesome feature to have in your home - especially here in Orlando!
But if something were to be wrong with your pool, the damages can cost thousands of dollars to repair. Leaking liners, pipe leaks, and more can not only be expensive to fix, but also cause damage and stress for years to come.
Starting in 2018, we here at Hero Inspection Services will be providing pool leak detection as an add-on service with your home inspection.
We set up our advanced leak detection equipment to measure water levels/volume. Our finely tuned equipment is able to detect leaks that are not able to be found during a typical pool inspection. If a leak is detected, then we are able to bring out the rest of our equipment and give a more precise location of the issue.
Contact us today to schedule YOUR Orlando Pool inspection!
Does your home inspector get into tight spaces? Does he go in every attic space possible? How about the crawlspace?
We here at Hero Home Inspections do! We get into every space humanly possible, and have equipment to help us get into spaces that other inspectors can't.
Why is this so important? Think about where people cut corners and hide or miss issues - the areas that no one sees. That is why we work so hard to get in there.
This image is a good example of why we work so hard to get into spaces where other inspectors won't. We found this structural issue in a crawlspace that was very difficult to get into. Someone apparently thought this structural beam was in the way and cut it - then repaired it improperly.
So if you need a thorough home inspector to get into tight spaces, contact us, Hero Home Inspections!
One of the most important things to look at when buying a home, is one of the items that is most overlooked - your grading.
Grading is the slope of the ground around your home. It can either be toward your home, away from your home, or neutral (flat). The obvious one that is most desirable is away from your home. So what is considered "good" grading or a "good" slope of the ground away from your home?
As you can imagine, many organizations disagree on many things - except for this. The overall consensus of mot organizations is that a %5 grade is a good rule of thumb.

What is hiding in your sewer lines? Many people don't realize how many hundreds of sewer line backups happen every year, and how much money is spent putting people's lives back together afterward.
A sewer line inspection is a simple process that can give you real peace of mind when buying your home. We come equipped and are happy to add this to your home inspection.
We have saved clients all across Central Florida time, money, and headache by finding issues in their main sewer lines. So when getting your home inspection, be sure to add a main sewer line inspection.
