You may be thinking, “What the heck does a home inspector have to do with pollution reduction?”

Good question!

I’ve given this some thought and did some research.

Home builders sometimes take shortcuts in their work. These shortcuts are intended to reduce costs to increase profits.

But sometimes these shortcuts include hazardous materials! Things such as asbestos, radon and lead paint!

Now granted, there are checks for these things, but sometimes things get over looked. Sometimes things slip through the cracks.

That’s where our hero comes in. The home inspector.

You as a buyer (or seller) should hire a profession home inspector to check for these hazardous materials before buying (or selling) a home.

This does two things. First, it sheds light on the culprit. Hopefully putting an end to their pollution. Two, it insures that no one is harmed from these horrible materials.

I dug around and did some searches in different places to see if any inspectors looked for such things.

I search for “home inspection grand prairie” and discovered that in fact they do! In fact, most inspectors are trained on this very topic when they get there certifications.

So do your part to shine a light on pollution when buying/selling a home.

That’s all for this episode folks. Remember to recycle!
