At Ciara Property Inspections, we believe in providing comprehensive and meticulous home inspections to ensure our clients make informed decisions about their real estate investments. One essential component of our inspection process that often goes unnoticed but plays a crucial role in safeguarding your investment is the sewer scope. In this blog, we'll delve into what a sewer scope is, why it's a vital part of a home inspection, and why we proudly include this service at no extra charge in all our single-family home inspections.

Understanding Sewer Scopes:

A sewer scope is a specialized inspection that involves sending a small camera through the main sewer line of a property. This camera captures real-time footage, allowing inspectors to assess the condition of the sewer line and identify any potential issues such as blockages, leaks, or structural damage. The information obtained from a sewer scope provides valuable insights into the overall health of a property's plumbing system.

Why Sewer Scopes Matter:

  1. Preventing Costly Repairs: A damaged or clogged sewer line can lead to significant repair costs. Identifying these issues early through a sewer scope allows homeowners to address them before they escalate, saving both time and money in the long run.

  2. Ensuring Health and Safety: Sewer problems can pose health hazards, with leaks potentially leading to mold growth and unpleasant odors. By conducting a sewer scope, we prioritize the health and safety of our clients by ensuring their homes are free from hidden plumbing issues.

  3. Full Property Assessment: A thorough home inspection goes beyond what meets the eye. Including a sewer scope in our inspections allows us to provide a complete picture of a property's condition, giving our clients the confidence to make well-informed decisions.
