About Us

Wise-Up Home Inspection, LLC

We believe that homeownership is one of the most important investments anyone can make, and we are committed to helping our clients make informed decisions about their homes. We offer a variety of services, and our Home Inspection company in Knoxville is always available to answer any questions you may have.

Experience Matters

Our Residential and Commercial Inspectors are fully trained, experienced and must fulfill annual continuing education as required by the State of Tennessee. This insures that our inspectors have the training needed to provide the best home inspection service in the area. We take the time to educate our clients on the home inspection process and what to expect when we report on the condition of their soon-to-be home.

Same Day Reporting

We provide detailed reports with photos and descriptions of any issues found during the inspection. You will know exactly what needs to be fixed before you buy your home. The report is a virtual manual of your home and can also be the most important contingencies written into the contract you signed when you made the offer on the home.

In-Depth Inspection

We go above and beyond what is required of us when conducting an inspection. The State of Tennessee and InterNACHI's Standards of Practice are but a starting point when we inspect your home. From the foundation to the roof and every part in between, you can rest assured that every system and component in the home is evaluated and reported to you. Normally our standard inspection includes services that other companies offer for an additional fee.


Service as Personal as Your Home

At Wise-Up Home Inspection, LLC. we understand that your home may be the largest purchase you’ll make. Our comprehensive range of services ensures that you have the information necessary to make an informed decision. 

Radon Testing

Radon is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that is formed from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water. A radon test measures the level of radioactive gas detected in a home. National Radon Testing Standards require that we monitor the home for a minimum of 48 hours. Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. We recommend that all homes be inspected for the presence of radon regardless of foundation type.

Termite Inspection

Also referred to as Wood Destroying Organisms (WDO), Our Termite Inspection checks for signs of termites in your home. Termites are tiny insects that can cause a lot of damage to a home. Along with Termites, the inspection will also identify other WDO's including Carpentar Ants and Bees. We value our relationships with our Termite Subcontractor and only work with the best. These relationships ensure that your home is throughly and objectively inspected.

Pool Inspections

A pool inspection is a good idea if you are buying a home with a pool or if you have a pool yourself. Pool inspections can find problems with the pool deck, the pool fence, the pool equipment, and more. It is important to fix any problems found in a pool inspection so that you can stay safe and avoid costly repairs later.How safe is your swimming pool?

Fireplace/Chimney Inspection

A fireplace or chimney inspection checks for problems with your fireplace or chimney. A fireplace or chimney inspection can find cracks in the masonry, leaks in the chimney liner, and more. If any problems are found, they need to be fixed right away to avoid dangerous situations and costly repairs. Unless purchasing a newly constructed home, we always recommend having a "Level 2" inspection completed. This includes a chimney sweep which provides protection for fireplaces and chimneys that we do not know their history.

Mold Inspection

Indoor mold growth can be a serious problem that requires professional attention. Not only does mold spread quickly, potentially damaging the structure of your home, it can also cause serious health problems to you or your family members. If you know, or even suspect, you have mold, it’s crucial that you take care of it right away. Mold can cause health problems if it is allowed to grow unchecked. A mold inspection will find any mold in your home and can also identify the type of mold. We use subcontractors that specifically inspect and mitigates (if necessary) for mold. If any mold is discovered during the inspection of your home, it needs to be removed as soon as possible.

Septic Loading and Dye Test

Septic System Loading and Dye Tests involve flushing a special dye down a toilet or other drain combined with a known quantity of water sufficient to put a working load on the absorption system. If waste water leaks to the ground surface (an unsanitary condition indicating serious septic failure) one may find dye in that water provided the septic system is flowing at common rates. Dyed effluent usually appears in 20-30 minutes on a failed system but can take up to five days to appear. Although this test can often find a costly failure it does not find all possible problems. So by itself a dye test is not indicative of complete condition of the system.

Well Water Testing

Well inspections provides an evaluation to the readily accessible components of the well system. Our Well Inspectors check the condition of your system for mechanical defects, such as rusting tanks, faulty gauges, or leaking seals. Such issues can cause low water pressure or encourage contaminants in the drinking water. Our well inspection will measure the volume of well water pumped and evaluate the rate at which the submersible pump works and test the pump performance over a length of time to see if all components are working optimally. If you’re purchasing a property with a well, it’s crucial to test the water beforehand. Not all states require present homeowners to inspect their wells before selling, so always ascertain whether the water’s safe to drink before buying the house.

Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality is essential not only for your health but for your safety as well. To figure out your indoor air quality, you need to conduct an indoor air quality test. Indoor air quality tests measure the air for things such as allergens, mold, and radon, among others. These tests can show whether the quality of your indoor air is either safe or dangerous. A good test will measure and tell you accurately what is in the air inside your home. Air quality is important for yourself, your pets, your friends, and your family. The only way to know if the air you are breathing indoors is safe and clean is to conduct an indoor air quality test. Wise-Up Home Inspection, LLC can accurately measure and test your air quality and can interpret the results for you. Our technicians are licensed, capable, and ready to help you whenever you need it
