The appliance RecallChek service is sold by many companies for $50 or more, but we provide this free with every Gold Standard Home Inspection.
Since 1974, home owners have been protected from dangerous items in their homes by federal law which prescribed a system whereby if a manufacturer 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 the consumer, to find out whether appliances are potential fire or safety hazards! There is a database designed and managed by the government, but you would have to enter each model and serial number for each appliance monthly in order to keep up with over 210 MILLION recalled items to find out if a dishwasher or air conditioner is a hazard in your home.
The RecallChek service automates this process and provides you with monthly updates on any new manufacturer recalls.
During the inspection, we collect model and serial numbers from the major appliances in your home, including, but not limited to, HVAC equipment, water heaters, microwaves, refrigerators, dishwashers, and ovens. There may be labels we cannot find or read, but, once you receive your first report, you can log in and add additional items such as garbage disposals, exhaust fans, and smoke detectors. Serial numbers are optional, but are encouraged to be submitted. Within 2 business days of submitting your appliances, you will receive a detailed report summarizing the RecallChek findings.
Take advantage of this terrific service and add all of your appliances to the appliance RecallChek system, especially when you replace a major system in the home.
If you are interested in the appliance RecallChek product, but did not have your home inspected through Evergreen, you can still purchase this for yourself. For a one-time charge of $29.95 you can sign up for this service, and receive monthly reports on any new manufacturer recalls on the products in your home!
