To ensure the safety of all customers and staff, the City of Maple Valley is asking that you consider the following instructions prior to requesting any inspection;
PLEASE DO NOT REQUEST INSPECTIONS WHERE THE WORK IS AN OCCUPIED HOME OR BUILDING. In these situations, please postpone your request for a later date.
If your inspection involves work in an occupied home or work area, please postpone your request for a later date. This applies to replacement of water heaters, furnaces, fireplaces, or other inspection types.
