Very few first-time home buyers consider a sewer scan inspection prior to buyer a home. Typically, your licensed home inspector inspects the structure, HVAC, electrical and plumbing, but a sewer inspection is something home buyers don’t typically think about.
This sewer line belongs to the property owner, and any problems with this sewer line are the financial responsibility of the owner. If there are issues that a routine sewer cleaning won’t solve, the repairs can be expensive.
A sewer scan inspection is one of the most important inspections a home buyer should consider because it offers an assessment of whether an obstruction, cracks, offset/broken sections, sagging or tree root intrusion is present in the piping.
At Jersey First, we specialize in sewer inspections. By using a small camera on the end of 100′ fiber optic cable, we can inspect the pipe that runs from the inside of the house to the city sewer at the street. There is no mess, no cleanup and the scan can be completed in less than 20 minutes.
Contact Jersey First Inspection Services, we can perform your home inspection and sewer scan all in one day.
