Home Inspectors Expand Service Offerings through SkyeTec and InterNACHI Partnership
Jacksonville based SkyeTec® and InterNACHI offer home inspectors licensure and certification to conduct Mold
and Water Intrusion Certification Inspections.
One of the most difficult challenges in the indoor environmental industry is
finding qualified personnel who can offer homeowners peace of mind from moisture
intrusion and mold. To meet the growing demand for expertise and peace of mind,
the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) and SkyeTec have
partnered to offer InterNACHI members licensure and training for water intrusion and
mold certification inspections, allowing home inspectors to expand their offerings.
“We created the technology and training to provide the most comprehensive response
possible for home inspectors to utilize in expanding their service offerings,”
said SkyeTec CEO Chris Uhland.
Aside from the ability to perform water intrusion and mold inspections, the partnership
offers home inspectors, a variety of new tools that range from training to an
online, proprietary database-- SkyeTracSM. Specifically, SkyeTracSM documents the findings from every Certification Inspection—offering written
proof of a home’s indoor environmental conditions at the time of inspection.
In addition, SkyeTec will be driving marketing efforts to the real estate community,
educating them in the benefits of the Certification and the expertise required.
The home inspector’s fees are limited to a licensing fee, support fees (if necessary),
and a per inspection cost (when applicable).
The need for expertise has been highlighted most recently in the Florida legislature
with consumer protection legislation. In recent years, industry commentary, several
states, and the media have also demonstrated the demand for standards in the indoor
environmental industry. SkyeTec has become that standard. With approximately
50,000 inspections on new construction scheduled in the Southeast, a scientific
process based on nationally recognized industry guidelines, and degreed inspectors,
SkyeTec is seeking to meet home inspectors’ need to provide expert indoor environmental
