Rodents, Chemicals, Asbestos Beware!

David suited up for the atticChances are, if you have recently had an Atlanta Home Inspection, you noticed the Atlanta Home Inspectors  wearing special white jumpsuits when entering attics, basements and crawlspaces.  Although the suits subtley remind us of astronaut gear, and they make the inspectors look quite sytlish-  it actually  is a protective outerwear. Tyvek® clad home inspectors are able to enter into areas where squirrels, oil, and perhaps toxic substances could be found.  Rodents, chemicals, asbestos beware!  The polyethylene fibers and random pattern bonding of the material make home inspectors invincible… sort of.  When suited up, the inspectors are resistant to water, chemicals, UV rays, and depending on the grade of suit, fire.

A DuPont researcher named Jim white, invented Tyvek® in 1955. However, it wasn’t until 10 years later that DuPont officially trademarked the product as Tyvek®. DuPont still manufactures the product today. The synthetic can be found in clothing, envelopes,tape, and home wrap – to name a few.  Builders install Tyvek®  as a moisture barrier. It also works to prevent air infiltration.

It is always a good idea to have a home inspection in Atlanta or wherever you live, in order to protect your family and your investments.  Ask about special tests such as radon, air quality and pest control when buying a new home.
