Schedule Inspection

Easy Inspection Scheduling!

As the festive season approaches, there’s much excitement in the air. While you may be preoccupied with holiday shopping, planning, and decorations, one crucial item on your checklist should be a comprehensive home inspection. At MDHI, a 5-star rated, locally-owned Home Inspections service serving Greater Maryland, we understand the significance of ensuring your home’s safety during the busiest time of the year. Here’s why a pre-holiday home inspection is essential.

The Risks of Overlooking Inspections

Holiday decorations, both indoors and outdoors, pose potential hazards that could turn your festive season into a nightmare. Wiring issues, structural problems, or unseen damages can interfere with your holiday decorations and potentially compromise your safety.

Electrical Concerns

Overloaded outlets: Plugging in multiple holiday lights can strain your electrical system.
Damaged wiring: Old or damaged wires can be a fire hazard, especially if they’re hidden behind decorations.
Incorrectly rated breakers: Using appliances that draw more power than your circuit can handle can cause outages or fire risks.

Structural Weaknesses

Damaged roofing: Snow accumulation or hanging heavy decorations can exacerbate existing roofing issues.
Unstable railings or balconies: Increased foot traffic during the holidays can pose a risk if these structures are weak.
