Habitation Service

Creating peace of mind with a habitation inspection

What Does A Habitation Check Consist Of?

1. Water & Plumbing

All water and plumbing systems are checked for leaks. A more thorough examination may be performed if there is any reason to believe plumbing systems are damaged. A technician will inspect all water taps and wastewater discharges. They will inspect the toilet and seal and, if installed, the wet heating system.

2. Electrics

Electrical systems and components are inspected during a habitation check. The check includes looking at all internal and external lights along with their sockets. Technicians also check circuit breakers and all electrical appliances, such as refrigerators.


3. Gas Systems

Just like water and electricity must be checked, so must a motorhome's gas systems. Technicians thoroughly inspect gas systems in order to identify any leaks. They also inspect ventilation, safety features built into the system, and all appliances that run on gas. This includes a gas-fuelled water heater.


4. Fire And CO Detectors

A habitation check includes testing fire and CO detectors to make sure they are in good working order. If a motor home is equipped with fire extinguishers, these will be examined as well.An expired extinguisher would need to be recharged or replaced.


5. Damp Check

Finally, a damp check is included with every comprehensive habitation check. This procedure is intended to reveal any dampness inside a motorhome before it causes too much damage.Technicians expect to find at least some moisture, but readings that seem excessively high could indicate that water is getting into the unit through windows, doors, or vents.

Ventilation is also examined to make sure it is working properly. Poor ventilation can result in dampness trapped inside the motorhome. Any such dampness would need to be addressed as quickly as possible.
