How to find the numbers

Since 1974, American citizens have been protected  from dangerous items in their homes by law.  If a manufacturer has designed a dangerous product, they MUST recall all those items and FIX THEM FOR FREE!
The problem in the law is that most often it’s up to you, the consumer, to find out whether your appliances are potential fire or safety hazards!
There’s a database online, but you would have to wade through 195 MILLION recalled items to find out if your dishwasher or air conditioner is a potential hazard. As a result, many of these dangerous appliances are still in homes across America.

HOW IT WORKS:

✓ Your Home Inspector will copy the model numbers of your built-in home appliances and HVAC system.

✓ The inspector will send us your recall Model Number Report. (Home inspectors are often NOT allowed to move appliances)

✓ At RecallChek Headquarters, your model numbers are computer matched against MILLIONS of recalls using our Model Number Algorithm (MNA).

✓ We then hand-check the report, to eliminate wrong numbers from worn plates and  ID cards, and other problems.

✓ In the event of a potential recall, RecallChek issues a report including

1) the nature of the recall,
2) where the product was sold,
3) how to remedy the defect, and
4) how to get the item repaired / replaced in     most cases
– absolutely FREE

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DO I CHOOSE A GOOD HOME INSPECTOR?

Choosing a good Home Inspector is key. There are many out there so be sure to do your research first. Look for an inspector with extensive experience, certifications, credentials and insurance.

WHAT CERTIFICATIONS AND/OR CREDENTIALS SHOULD A GOOD HOME INSPECTOR OFFER?

Look for an Inspector that is affiliated with ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors.) An Inspector with certifications in areas of importance such as Radon Testing, Mold Testing and Remediation, is also key to providing you a thorough inspection.

WHY CAN’T I HAVE SOMEONE IN MY FAMILY WHO IS VERY HANDY OR A CONTRACTOR, INSPECT MY NEW HOME?

This is the biggest mistake many potential new homeowners make when purchasing a home. Although the person you are considering may be very skilled, most likely, they are not trained or experienced at professional Home Inspections. Professional Home Inspection is a unique skill like no other. Professional Inspectors have a keen instinct for problems. This instinct takes extensive training and years of experience to develop.

HOW LONG WILL THE INSPECTION TAKE?

Most Inspections take about two to three hours. These times may vary depending on the size, age & condition of the home.

SHOULD I BE PRESENT DURING AN INSPECTION?

Yes; we recommend that clients not only be present during the inspection, but also involved. Home Inspection Professionals strive to be the best and a big part of how we do that is by educating our clients about the property they are looking to purchase. By being a part of the process, clients not only become familiar with the subject property but also become informed about the investment opportunity they are faced with.

CAN A HOUSE FAIL AN INSPECTION?

There is no pass or fail. While it is true that a thorough home inspection may uncover areas of concern, some which may present costly repairs, a need for updates and improvements or future maintenance and upkeep challenges, the evaluation may also bring to light attractive and valuable assets which sometimes lie hidden under the surface. HIA’s 1600 point home inspection gives clients a piece of mind, allowing them to be confidence in their buying decision.
