Module: Tools of an inspector

During this eighth module of our program to become a highly qualified home inspector, the student will have the chance to learn more and discover the different tools that are necessary in his daily work. Indeed, the home inspector uses several instruments and various devices that allow him to perform a quality inspection, making sure not to miss anything and to detect all possible anomalies that require special attention or immediate repair. Without these tools, an inspection would be much more difficult and today’s technology allows inspectors to do the job even more efficiently than before. Check out some of the tools that will be discussed in this Urban Studies module below!

The home inspector uses many tools in his work to verify the condition of a property, including several technologies that are otherwise difficult to access. These include moisture analyzers, which are used to detect humidity. The inspector uses electrical testing devices to ensure that the electricity in the house is working properly.

Other tools used by a home inspector include: binoculars, flashlights, ladders, and telescopic mirrors. In this module, students will learn the benefits of these tools and why they are so important to their future careers.
