Since the early 1970’s, American homeowners have been protected from dangerous products in their homes by federal law. Congress prescribed a system whereby if a manufacturer designed a dangerous product, they MUST recall all those items and FIX THEM FOR FREE!
The problem with this consumer protection law is that the customer must search an enormous database every month for each individual product including HVAC equipment, water heaters, and kitchen appliances to learn about a potential fire or safety hazard. There is a database designed and managed by the government, but you would have to wade through 195 MILLION recalled items to find out if a dishwasher, microwave or heat system is a hazard to your family.
How the RecallChek system works:
Signature Home Inspection records and submits your appliance data for the property to the RecallChek center.
At RecallChek Headquarters, your manufacturers and model numbers are computer matched against MILLIONS of recalls using our Model Number Algorithm (MNA).
RecallChek will then hand-check the report to eliminate wrong numbers from worn plates and ID cards and other problems.
In the event of a potential recall, RecallChek issues a report including:
- the nature of the recall,
- where the product was sold,
- how to remedy the defect, and
- how to get the item repaired or replaced (in most cases, absolutely FREE).
