The kitchen has been called the heart of a home, and in many families, this is definitely the case. Many meals are prepared and shared there. However, what are some issues that a home inspector could spot in your kitchen?

A lot of problems could arise around the sink. You want to make sure that the pressure is within safe limits, not doing damage to the pipes. Make sure that the sink drains well, and that the garbage disposal works as intended.

If you have a dishwasher in your kitchen, you want to make sure that there are no leaks. A leaking dishwasher can do a lot of damage before it is detected, so if you are not sure what state your dishwasher is in, you should take the time to inspect all water and drain lines.

Any electrical outlets you have in your kitchen should be GFCI outlets to protect yourself from electrocution. In any areas where water and electricity are in close proximity, this is an essential safety feature.
