Inspecting crawl spaces under houses can be a difficult task for several reasons. Some of the challenges that may be encountered include:

Accessibility: Crawl spaces are often small and cramped, making it difficult to move around and access different areas. This can make it challenging to thoroughly inspect the space and identify any issues.

Limited visibility: Crawl spaces are often dark and may not have adequate lighting, making it difficult to see and identify potential issues.

Physical challenges: Crawling on hands and knees in a confined space can be physically demanding, especially if the crawl space is large or the inspector needs to access hard-to-reach areas.

Safety concerns: Crawl spaces may contain hazards such as sharp objects, electrical wiring, or pests that could pose a risk to the inspector. It is important to take necessary precautions, such as wearing protective gear and using caution when handling any potential hazards.

Proview Professional Home Inspections provides the BIGCrawler that sets 6″ in height and takes 360 videos of the crawlspace to view those areas of most concern.


As a home inspector, we often come across roofs that cannot be safely walked on, whether due to their pitch, material, or other factors. In these cases, we rely on a tool called an “eye stick” to perform a thorough inspection of the roof.

An eye stick is a long, telescoping pole with a camera and light attached to the end. With this tool, we can capture high-quality images of the roof’s surface and inspect it closely, even from a distance. The camera can also be used to inspect gutters, chimneys, and other roof features that may be difficult to access.

Using an eye stick for roof inspections is not only safe, but also allows us to identify potential issues that may be missed with a visual inspection alone. For example, we can zoom in on specific areas of the roof to check for missing or damaged shingles, cracks, or other signs of wear and tear.

Overall, the eye stick is an invaluable tool for ensuring that every aspect of a home is thoroughly inspected, even if it cannot be accessed in person. As a home inspector, our top priority is always the safety and satisfaction of our clients, and the eye stick helps us achieve that goal with every inspection.


As a home inspector, we often get asked about the importance of mold sampling and testing during a home inspection. While not every home requires mold testing, it can be a valuable tool for identifying potential mold issues and ensuring the safety of the property.

Mold testing involves taking air or surface samples from the home and analyzing them in a lab to determine if mold is present, and if so, what type of mold it is. This information can help identify potential health hazards and guide the development of an effective mold remediation plan.

Mold testing is especially important for homes with a history of water damage, high humidity, or poor ventilation. Mold growth can be dangerous to occupants and cause significant damage to the home’s structure over time.

As a home inspector, our top priority is always the safety and satisfaction of our clients. That’s why we recommend mold testing for any home with suspected mold issues. By identifying potential mold problems early, we can ensure the home is safe and healthy for years to come.
