Tales From The Field Episode 2 - Everybody Wants To Find A Secret
Christopher's keen eye leads him to discover a surprise for the new homeowner!
Tales From The Field Episode 1 - An Issue of Utility
This first episode of Season 2 follows Christopher through searching for and discovering a utility room that wasn't quite up to snuff.
Most of us have a lot of stuff. A great deal of that stuff is useful, but that doesn't mean it has to be immediately accessible at all times. In this episode we take a verbal stroll through the home and discuss the many storage options available for the variety of room types and needs most homeowners have.
The Straight Poo About Sewers
Oh, yay! It's time to talk about sewers! Because of Taro Gomi's classic book, we all know that every home needs a way to manage waste. In this episode we talk about all types of sewers, what a sewer scope inspection will find, and talk about many gross and fascinating things. We also address the perennial question: What should I work on first in my new home?? Show notes page: https://www.thehonestinspector.com/?p=1025
This week we talk about radon - what it is, where it comes from, how to measure it, and how to mitigate. The State of Minnesota recently enacted a law requiring licensure for radon measurement professionals, and as a part of that licensure, Christopher has to complete several hours of continuing education a year. In this episode he shares some of the things he learned at his last class. Show notes: https://www.thehonestinspector.com/?p=1015
Central Air Unit Maintenance
Hey, guess what? It's hot and humid in Minnesota during the summer! Crazy, right?! Anyway, we know that routine cleaning and maintenance of things that we operate by pushing a magic button on the wall are tasks that slip by us all too easily, so we're here to remind you of what you need to do to ensure your AC unit is in tip-top shape this summer.

Informative and Entertaining
Nice "bite sized" episodes which give enough of a dive into a specific topic that a homeowner who wasn't raised to know how to care for a house can get a clue of where to start. I'm looking forward to more episodes some day.
