A.Our Forensic Home Inspection service looks for the source of urine odor in homes. We do not provide the Standard Home Inspection Service which is required by most lending institutions also called Pre-purchase inspections. We provide a forensic home inspection much like CSI to find invisible evidence of animal or human urine stains on Flooring, Walls and other surfaces areas of the home.
Home Inspectors check the mechanical functions of the home. When a Home Inspector finds damage they will make a note in the report. The note will usually recommend that you find an expert to perform additional test or repair as needed. A knowledgeable home inspector should do the same if there is obvious urine odor damage in the home. Please Note** The smell of urine has nothing to do with the mechanical function of the home and is not part of the Standard Home Inspection.
Over 80% of home buyers request a home inspection as part of their sales contract. However, homebuyers (and sellers) falsely assume that a general home inspectors job is to uncover all property property damage. The number of Buyers that regret purchasing their homes because of unexpected repairs is estimated that 20%.
If you need a forensic inspection to find odor in a remodeled home home you purchased we’ll find it. This type of home inspection is useful for Landlords, Tenants, Home Buyers, Home Sellers, Realtors & Appraisers. To find cat urine on walls we use a high output UV-Blacklight to illuminate & identify pet urine stains on walls, floors, baseboards, doors, counter tops & window ledges. We check for wet urine damage to the structure using electronic & thermo imaging equipment.
We provide a completely itemized Home Inspection Report room by room. The report includes our findings of urine odor damage, recommendations & cost to remediate the odor. The Forensic Home Inspection Report also includes the cost to repair all affected areas.
Forensic home inspection Cost can range from $250 min service to $1500 for average size houses up to 4000 Sq,Ft. depending on location, condition & severity of urine damage. The average time for a forensic home inspection can take 2-4 hours. Very large, severely damaged home inspections can take 4-8 hours and sometimes longer.
Specialty Home inspections for urine odor damage give buyers additional information about the extent of damages and repair cost. Should an investigation reveal serious structural urine damage or costly to repairs; the buyer can make an informed decision based on the inspection report. If a buyer wants to move forward with a deal despite repair issues; the buyer can negotiate with the seller to fix serious deficiencies or reduce the asking price of the property.
If a seller has disclosed pet urine on the Property Questionnaire or orally, buyers should probably get the property inspected by a service like Pet Odor Removal Services. Unfortunately, many sellers will hire carpet cleaning companies to clean & deodorize the carpet which will temporarily mask the smell of urine odor.
With an estimated 164 million people across the United States who own pets, Pet Odor Removal Services solves a significant problem for homeowners and potential buyers alike. Specifically, this type of forensic home inspection includes UV-light, Moisture & a professional walking through a home to look for signs of pet odor. The inspector performs a smell test to determine the urine odor level in each room.
Additionally, the inspection will be on alert for fragrances from carpet cleaning products and deodorizers used to mask urine odors.
A 365nm 4’ dual florescent blacklight is the best light to illuminate invisible urine stains. We scan the house from floor to ceiling for any signs of cat spray or dog urine stains.
Additionally, the inspector will check for physical urine damage throughout the property. Pay close attention to areas that may show physical urine damage or heavy contamination. If appropriate, the inspector will disengage the carpet, and inspect the backing of the carpet or sub-floor & back strips, beneath the surface.
Forensic Inspection. The severity of Pet urine damage is usually not realized until after the purchase of the property. We need to know whether it has been repainted over cat spray or new flooring installed over urine damaged subfloors? If so? The newly installed flooring installed may have to removed to inspect the condition of the subfloor or concrete. The inspector carries various types of U.V. lights to find urine stains on drywall, baseboards, doors & cabinets etc.
Overall, Pet Odor Removal Service doesn’t rely on deodorizing or cleaning products to get rid of urine odor. Instead, we provide Odor Encapsulation which is done after all the affected areas are usually dried, s anded & cleaned. Our Proprietary Odor Encapsulation System will eliminate the smell of urine usually in less than 24 hrs!
If a seller has disclosed pet urine or orally, buyers should get a pet odor home inspection. If there is any other reason to suspect pet urine damage, buyers should have a specialized pet odor inspection done. For the most part it is usually much better to be safe than sorry.
