While this is by far the most common use of a handheld inspection mirror, every so often we come across, and you learn new ways our customers are using these products. A few years ago we were working with a pest control company out of Arizona. This company wanted an inspection mirror to aid their workers out in the field inspecting homes for pasts. A common problem that many of them face is inspecting gutters.


There are a lot of critters that hide in your gutters that you may never know about. This specific manager I spoke to told me on several occasions people in the field have reached their hands up inside of a gutter to come out with a large spider, rats, and once, even a A snake. Luckily, this was a nonvenomous snake. The product this customer ended up purchasing from us was a handheld truck inspection mirror. The truck inspection mirror has a telescopic pole that with a simple twist extends up to 20 feet. Depending on the gutter or roof height, the inspector telescopes the pole and looks at the convex mirror at the other in to look down into the contents of the gutter. Not only does this save them a tremendous amount of time, not having to set up and move set up and move a ladder, it allows them to quickly scan the exterior of the home more efficiently, and safely.

Now, this pest control company uses it throughout its franchises and offers it's inspectors the use of this mirror. carries the best handheld inspection mirrors available in the market today. While there are others out there, none compare to the quality and craftsmanship of the mirrors that we carry.
