Thus when you conduct home inspections the first thing the home inspector notices is the doorbell of the house and then start inspection of the house.
Always clean the exhaust fans –
Many people attach the exhaust fans in their kitchen and bathrooms. But many people just attach it and start using it and stop maintaining it.

Fill up the cracks on the walls of the house –
Many a time after few years of constructing a house you may notice that cracks in the walls.

Thus, due to elasticity, cracks may appear on the walls in the walls of house after few years of construction. These cracks may give a very bad report of your home inspections, if conducted. Hence, always try to cover the cracks with the layer of the cement and later paint that part which may improve the strength of the wall and may also improve its appearance.
