Most Common ADA Compliance Violation
ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) violations are found on nearly 100% of all properties inspected by Kross Inspectors!
 
This is true, even with new construction as some very minor details are missed by the Contractor involved, even if a pre construction survey may have been completed!
 
Did you know there are groups out there targeting properties in order to file complaints based on even the smallest detail missed?  
 
Did you know that the average ADA complaint costs business and property owners an average of $45,000 in settlement costs? 
 
Did you know that a simple survey of the property with a documented report by an Expert can help avoid the aggravation and legal expenses involved? 
 
Kross Inspectors ADA Compliance Surveys
 
Well, now you know the facts.
 
And here is another very important fact to remember for the month of August: Kross Inspectors is committed to helping our Clients achieve a goal of 100% compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act by offering FREE ADA Compliance Surveys with every Commercial Property Inspection.   
 
Our firm has performed hundreds of ADA Compliance surveys throughout the Southeastern United States and here are some more quick and interesting findings based on those surveys:
  • Average number of violations found per property surveyed by Kross Inspectors = 3
  • Average cost of correcting violations found by Kross Inspectors = $500
  • Percentage of violations found to be the Property Owner's responsibility rather than the Business Owner's = 75%

Mold & Radon - The Hidden Problems!
For 11 years now, Kross Inspectors has offered the most comprehensive Standard Home Inspection available!
 
Although our Standard Home Inspection includes a visual search for moisture intrusion and surface Mold, it cannot report on an airborne Mold problem as that requires testing. 
 
Same goes with Radon.  Radon is an invisible, odorless, and colorless gas.  The only way to tell if Radon is elevated in a property is to test. 
 
When describing our services to new Clients, many have opted to upgrade their Home Inspection to include reviewing these hidden problems!
 
In 2011, Kross Inspectors was the FIRST to offer the most comprehensive PACKAGE Inspection to include not only everything we cover in our typical Standard Inspection, but Mold and Radon testing as well....FOR NEARLY $1,000 OFF having every Inspection and Test performed separate!
 
Environmental Home Purchase PKG from Kross Inspectors
 
Our Environmental Home Purchase Package Includes:
  • Standard Home Inspection (Exterior, Structure, Roof, Interior, Insulation/Ventilation, Appliances, Heating/Cooling, Electrical, Plumbing, and Wind Mitigation)
  • Four Point Insurance Inspection (For Homes 30 Years or Older)
  • Mold Air Quality Survey
  • Radon Test
  • Inspection Reports Delivered On Site!
  • Laboratory Reports Delivered by End of 2nd Business Day!
With quick appointment scheduling available, we can meet the shortest of deadlines imposed by Contract Inspection Periods!

Kross Inspectors
Buyer Beware - Increase of FALSE Positive Chinese Drywall Homes!
As many of you know, Kross Inspectors was the first company to develop a proven protocol and offer Chinese  Drywall Inspections in late 2008!
 
Since then, our firm has performed well over 28,000 of these Inspections, making our team THE experts in identifying homes affected by Problem Drywall.  
 
No other firm in the country has the experience of Kross Inspectors.  With that, we have discovered, yet again, a large increase of other Inspectors erring on the side of caution and identifying homes as being Positive for containing Chinese Drywall, when in fact the symptoms they are seeing are caused by other common and easily remedied problems! 
 
In the past week alone, Realtors throughout Florida have reached out to Kross Inspectors more than 10 times on behalf of their Clients in order to obtain second opinions.  In nearly 100% of those cases, our Experienced Inspectors were able to identify the homes DID NOT contain Chinese Drywall, butChinese Drywall Inspections by Kross Inspectors showed similar symptoms due to excessive sulfur gases being distributed by the plumbing system!  In these situations, the fix costs less than $300, far less than the stress and costly ordeal of having to gut the home!
 
Not only did Kross Inspectors save the day for these Buyers, Sellers, and Real Estate Professionals, but the Realtors learned a valuable lesson.  They now refer Kross Inspectors to their Home Buyers as we INCLUDE Chinese Drywall Inspections with all of our Home Inspections on homes built from 2001 through 2010!  This saves all parties from having to pay double when inexperienced Inspectors cast a shadow of doubt on the property!  (And reduces the stress level by knowing right away and not having to second guess anyone!)

ADA Compliance Update 6/27/2018
Have You Received Your ADA Compliance Certificate?
ADA Compliance Surveys From Kross Inspectors
You are receiving this email as you or your Client have had an ADA Compliance Survey Completed by Kross Inspectors in the recent past. 
 
A review of our records indicates you may not have been issued an ADA Certificate of Compliance for your files and posting at the business!
 
Maintaining a current certificate helps in many ways:
  • Fair Business Practices:  By offering equal access to goods and services to those with disabilities, you are performing your civic duty and not discriminating by denying access to those with accessibility challenges. 
  • Law Suit Defense:  Many organizations make unscheduled visits to public businesses to ensure compliance. Unfortunately, they DO NOT warn business owners before filing a law suit.  Maintaining a current Compliance Certificate can help avoid these law suits. 
  • Legal Fee Reimbursement: If an individual files a law suit against a business with a current Compliance Certificate, we have been involved in cases where the Plaintiff has to pay the Defendant's legal fees!
  • Additional Business Revenue:  By providing equal access to all to goods and services provided at the Business, this provides opportunities for additional revenue!
If you have made the recommended modifications to the property, please contact us to schedule your Follow Up Inspection.  We will verify and update your ADA Compliance Survey AND issue a current ADA Compliance Certificate. 
 
If you have NOT made the recommended modifications and feel that doing so may harm your business financially or may not be physically possible, CONTACT US.  We can review your individual situation and possibly provide an argument for full compliance being "Not Readily Achievable".  Keep in mind GRANDFATHERING is NOT recognized as a defense in law suits against businesses for non-compliance. The only way to overcome this is to include an argument from an ADA Expert (Kross Inspectors) explaining why certain items are Not Readily Achievable. With this argument included in your Survey, you CAN be issued an ADA Compliance Certificate!
 
CALL 1-877-496-4662

To schedule your FREE Post ADA Compliance Survey Consultation with our Expert!

(877) 496-4662
FREE ADA Compliance Survey With ALL Commercial Building Inspections!
Our Clients and Commercial Brokers have been so impressed receiving a FREE ADA Compliance Survey with their Commercial Property Inspections for the past month, we have decided to extend this offer through September! 
 
Why have an ADA Compliance Survey Completed? 
  • Liability Reduction:  As property owners with public access, we are responsible to provide equal access for those with disabilities to goods and services.
  • Documentation:  By having a current survey on hand, this documentation often heads off the lengthy and expensive process of settling a dispute or complaint.
  • Average of 3 Easily Corrected Violations:  In performing these surveys, our experts have found an average of 3 violations perADA Compliance Questions
    property.  Many of which are relatively easy and inexpensive to correct!
  • Review Property Design According to NEW Standards: Even if you have a newer building, violations are often found as new design standards are issued often for different property use types!
  • Do Your Part:  The Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 is celebrating 25 years of removing barriers and empowering people!  You can do your part as a business or commercial property owner by ensuring your property is compliant for those with special needs! 
Finally, are you contemplating purchasing or already own an older property of which you know is not in compliance with the standards?  Many of these properties ARE "grandfathered" in due modifications not being "readily achievable".  Only proper documentation provided by an Expert in the field can prevent the costly process of answering a dispute on your own.

Subject: [Preview] Air Conditioning Inspection Update from Kross Inspectors
Send Preview to:
Kross Inspectors
BUYER BE AWARE!  Air Conditioning Inspections
A lot of buzz is going around the Inspection and Air Conditioning Industry about the use of R-22 refrigerant in residential air conditioning units. 
 
Although the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) began implementing guidelines and regulations regarding Phase Out of R-22 in 1987, phase out deadlines in 2010 and 2015 have made this a hot topic among professionals in the industry.  
 
PROBLEM:  The concern with R-22 use is one of environmental origins.  R-22 is an ozone depleting agent and therefore, is being phased out in order to protect everyone.  
 
SOLUTION:  Manufacturers have been using new environmental friendly refrigerants in order to comply with the EPA Phase Out timelines and protect our environment.
 
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO A HOME BUYER?
 
If you are considering purchasing a home with an air conditioning system using R-22 refrigerant, be prepared to pay more in repair costs as time goes by and the refrigerant required for servicing becomes unavailable. (R-22 production will be banned in year 2020.)
 
Finally, this DOES NOT mean a Home Buyer should run away from a purchase simply because the A/C system uses R-22!  A Home Inspector can determine if the system is operational at the time of the Inspection, but will recommend a complete review by a licensed contractor in order to determine future performance. Keep in mind that the Inspection is simply a "snapshot" in time and Home Inspectors are not qualified nor licensed to fully examine a system using the techniques and equipment required in order to determine future performance.  The good news is that most licensed Air Conditioning Contractors will include this assessment as part of their annual maintenance!
 
If your Inspector recommends a review of the system due to R-22 being used, simply ask the seller for the maintenance records and reach out to the servicing company in order to inquire about the future life expectancy.  If records do not exist, a licensed A/C Contractor should be consulted prior to making the purchase decision.
 
To read more about the Phase Out of R-22, CLICK HERE for information provided by the EPA.

Inspecting Septic Systems
Private septic systems are designed to capture waste from the plumbing drains when hookup to a public sewer system is not available.  
 
Your typical Home Inspection includes a very limited evaluation of a septic system.  At most the Inspector can visually inspect the drain field and surrounding areas.  The Inspector will place as much of a water load as reasonably possible on the system during the Inspection as well.  This is done by operating multiple fixtures at the same time and observing any signs of potential backflow or blockage problems.  Common sense tells us that the typical 3-4 hour Inspection is not sufficient to fully evaluate the system under normal daily loads. (Showering, Bathing, Laundry, etc.)  
 
Why not any more invasive than this?  
 
A full evaluation of a septic system can only be performed after the tank is pumped and can only be performed by a Florida Licensed Septic Contractor.  The best method for evaluating systems is when a Licensed Contractor uses cameras to inspect the tank and lines.  Again, a Home Inspector is not properly qualified or licensed to perform these activities.
 
Fees for evaluations such as these range from $350-$500 depending on the location of the property and the Kross Inspectorssize of the tank. 
 
Most experts recommend that this service be performed every three years.  We recommend to ALL of our Home Buyer Clients to have this done during their Contract Inspection period if possible.  
 
Why not wait until the three years is up since the last service on the property? 
 
Things change.  Even if the last septic service was months ago, a Home Buyer cannot be assured that everything is fine.  Many events could have occurred causing a hidden problem (improper materials being flushed into the system, ground changes to the septic field, landscape changes, etc.).  The risk is too great to simply skip the step in order to save money.  "Peace of Mind" comes when a new Home Owner starts off with a "Clean Slate"!  Kross Inspectors can refer a local professional Septic Contractor to perform this service at the same time as our Inspection. 
 
To find out more about how Septic Systems are evaluated during a Home Inspection call us at (239) 677-4403.

Who's Doing Your Radon Test?
Skipping The Radon Test Is Risky
Kross Inspectors Radon Testing
 
Did you know that 1 out of 5 homes tested in Florida reveal an elevated level of Radon?  That means there is a 20% chance that a home under contract has hidden within it the leading cause of lung cancer among non smokers! (CLICK HERE to see Florida Department of Health Facts.)
 
There is approximately a 2% chance that a home built between 2001 and 2011 has Chinese Drywall. Realtors and Buyers DO NOT skip the Chinese Drywall Inspection with this low risk, so why skip a Radon test with a 20% chance of exposing a family to a known health risk?  
 
CLICK HERE or Call (239) 677-4403 to find out how easy it is to find out if a home has elevated Radon along with your Home Inspection!
