Sewer Pipe Failures

SewerGard Free with Every Inspection

Free with Every Inspection


It’s not something you want to think about, but the water pipes that bring water to your home and carry waste water away from your house can and do fail. And they seem to fail at the worst possible time. That’s why we provide FREE 90 Day coverage, called SewerGard, for these underground pipes with every inspection at Certified Home & Commericial Inspections. It covers up to $4,000 of repair cost.

Please note: Many homeowner’s insurance policies and home warranties DO NOT include the sewer lines outside of your house. One home warranty that DOES include coverage for these sewer lines is the “simple” home warranty from Residential Warranty Services.

Carbon Monoxide Alarms

Beginning January 1, 2014, these alarms are now required in all homes and condos when they are purchased. Carbon Monoxide alarms have been required in all new homes since 2011 in the State of Washington.
Placement of these alarms is key to preventing health issues. They are to be placed outside each separate sleeping area on each level of a residence. Be sure to change the batteries annually, even if your alarm is wired to the electrical supply, it will need those back up batteries in case of a power outage.
Like smoke detectors, this is an easy but very important safety issue. Carbon monoxide is an odorless, invisible gas that can cause death when breathed in a matter of minutes.

For this reason, Keith Schenk with Certified Home & Commercial Inspections always checks for carbon monoxide alarms as well as smoke detectors and includes this information in his inspection reports.

This diagram illustrates proper placement of carbon monoxide alarms in a home as well as sources of Carbon Monoxide commonly found in homes.
