InterNACHI Certified Professional Home Inspector
Hello, I’m Brett Baldinger. As a professional firefighter and paramedic, I’ve been in service to the greater Akron area communities for over 13 years. My Firefighter 2 Certification includes thorough training in building construction and structural safety. As a first responder, I’ve become adept at helping people stay calm in intense and stressful situations and have brought that skill with me to the building inspection field.
Former Registered Sanitarian—Current Well & Septic Inspector
Hello, I’m Bruce Baldinger. In addition to being Brett’s father, I’ve spent over 32 years working within the Summit County Health Department as a Registered Sanitarian, ensuring Northeast Ohio residents and businesses have clean water and sanitary sewage and septic systems. My expertise is part of what makes 1st Alert Home Inspections, LLC a little bit different. You’ll find me accompanying Brett if you desire a well or septic inspection as part of our service to you.
Both of us enjoy the outdoors, particularly hunting and fishing in the quiet of nature. We also enjoy working with people and helping others. Given our skills and interests, home inspecting makes perfect sense for us. Providing a service that helps people reduce their stress during the complex process of buying a home is our sincere pleasure.

We stay current on local building and health codes and regulations, in order to provide the most comprehensive and up-to-date home inspection services to our valued clients.
Our inspections meet or exceed State of Ohio and local standards of practice, which can vary slightly from one county to the next.
