Sometimes we receive calls that are just unusual to say the least. However, it is needful to follow up on all calls.
Home Inspection Consultants - Home Inspection Consultants how can we help you?
Caller - Hi yes, we just had our home inspected by your company.
Home Inspection Consultants - So you're the home-owner?
Caller - Yes. When I got home, I realized that my fridge door no longer closes properly.
Home Inspection Consultants - Well ma'am, I don't know why that would be, but can you describe the issue.
Caller - Well my fridge door used to close tight but now it won't and I am afraid my food in the fridge is going to spoil.
Home Inspection Consultants - Yes ma'am, well I will contact the home inspector and have him go and look at it today when he is between his inspections.
Caller - Oh thank you as this is quite an issue for me.
Home Inspection Consultants - Not a problem, someone will be there soon.
Conclusion - The ketchup bottle in the fridge door was positioned in a way that it was not allowing the door to close properly. The home-owner was very apologetic and the inspector was put at ease and everyone was happy. We like happy endings. :)
I've come across a lot of interesting tidbits of information during my 29 year career as a home inspector. I've been told that I'm pretty meticulous and a good 'teacher', so hopefully you'll find some interesting information here..
