Home inspections unearth not only the aesthetic features of a property but also critical safety considerations. Ashi-Certified Inspector Wes O. highlights a ceiling fan safety concern observed during an inspection.
In this instance, while testing the ceiling fan, Inspector Wes O. noticed a precarious issue—the fan was positioned at a height that aligned with his head, despite his height of 6 feet. This situation contradicts recommended safety standards, as ceiling fans should ideally be installed no lower than 7 feet from the floor. This ensures a safe distance and prevents potential accidents or injuries caused by inadvertently coming into contact with the fan blades.
