We call these Tools of the Trade:
Here are the tools you will have to have to complete a thorough inspection.
♦ Combustible Gas Detector
♦ Quality Flashlight (Bring backup batteries)
♦ Inspection Mirror (for looking at furnace burners and register)
♦ GFCI Tester (outlet tester)
♦ 2-Prong Circuit Tester
♦ Clipboard (for notes or paper checklist)
♦ Tool Carrier (Such as a tool bucket with tool carrier inlay)
♦ Order tabs for issuing receipts
♦ Moisture meters are nice to have to indicate if leaks in wood are active.
♦ Radon detectors are nice to have in areas as an add on service.
♦ Infrared Cameras are used by some inspectors to find hidden leaks, missing insulation and items not visible behind walls. However these are not necessary.
