Realtors® routinely have clients ask them how to prepare for a home inspection. These are routine steps sellers can take to ensure that the inspection goes off without a hitch.

Broken Compact Fluorescent Bulb?
CFLs contain a small amount of mercury and when on breaks it can become airborne.  Open a window to air out the room for 15 minutes and use a stiff piece of paper to scoop pieces into a sealable plastic bag.  Blot up remaining fragments with tape, wipe surface with a damp paper towel and tuck into the bag.  Dispose of as directed by local rules.
