A thorough rodent inspection is not typically covered in the traditional home inspection services because the home inspector will need to move materials in an intrusive way to inspect for rodents or rodent damage. Adding this skillset to your list of highly-qualified services is a profitable investment for your business and allows you to warn your clients before making an investment mistake. With the proper training and certification, you’ll be able to identify damages caused by rodents, a current rodent infestation or how the current situation could become a rodent recipe for disaster. There are many benefits to adding rodent inspections to your home inspection service.
- Offer a needed service to your clients and provide more value than a basic-level home inspection which will set you apart from your competitors in the area.
- Increase the amount of money you can charge clients for a home inspection since you are adding more value to better inform their purchasing decision.
- Set client’s expectations upfront in case they just assume their basic-level home inspection would find evidence of mice, rats, or squirrels in the home they want to purchase.
- Satisfied customers will help grow your business with their 5-star reviews and word-of-mouth recommendations.
