Our property inspection services can go beyond what you might expect.
If there is one goal everyone has, it is having a safe and secure environment for their family. There can be unseen dangers lurking whether you have a relatively new home or one built decades ago. The only way to know for sure that your Lake Norman, North Carolina home is free of health concerns is with a professional property inspection. At Kulumo Home Inspection Services Lake Norman, we look for issues that most inspection companies do not.
We offer the following property inspection services:
- EMF testing- Powerline testing and 5G tower radiation testing are commonly requested by buyers before closing on a home to be sure it is located in an area that isn’t being bombarded by potentially unsafe EMF (electromagnetic field) levels.
- Mold testing- Since water damage can go undetected in many circumstances, so can mold growth. If you have noticed odors or humidity issues, or if your family has been dealing with respiratory issues, a property inspection that includes mold testing is a wise idea.
- Radon testing- Both buyers and owners of existing homes should consider radon testing as part of a property inspection. Elevated levels of radon can have a severe impact on your health. Radon is odorless, colorless and tasteless, so the only way to know that you do not have an elevated level of radon is to have it tested.
- Standard inspection- We also offer the normal property inspection services that you would want before closing on a house or to have peace of mind about your home’s condition.

FAQs About Property Inspections
If you’re thinking about investing in a new home for you and your family, it’s vital to do everything you can to ensure the property is safe and well-maintained. Here at Kulumo Home Inspection Services Lake Norman, our experienced team offers thorough property inspections to identify any potential issues that could impact the value of the home or your personal safety. Below, we’ve responded to a few frequently asked questions about getting a home inspection to help you recognize the benefits of getting this service before closing on a house.
What is the purpose of a property inspection?
A property inspection is designed to carefully examine the entire property from roof to basement to catch any issues that the previous owner may not have known about or tried to cover up. This could include minor problems, such as an old water heater that needs to be replaced, to significant issues, like a rotting, leaking roof. After a property inspection takes place, you’ll have all the information you need to decide if you’re ready to close, if you want to negotiate a lower price based on the inspector’s findings, or walk away from the sale altogether.
Why should I get a property inspection?
If you toured the property and made sure to take a close look at each room, you may think that you have a good understanding of the home’s condition. However, a certified home inspector can see past the fresh paint and carefully staged décor to catch issues that might lie beneath the surface. For instance, you might not have the skills required to examine the home’s heating or cooling systems, tell if a roof is in good condition, or check for electrical problems. When you turn to a home inspector, you can have peace of mind knowing that you’re making the right decision when you finally close on a new house.
