Our COVID-19 Response – Business As Usual – With Some Cautionary Changes

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak and to help protect the health of everyone involved, including our inspectors, our clients, the homeowner and our real estate partners, here’s what we’re doing to help limit the spread of COVID-19.

We are asking you, our clients, to stay home if possible. This is different from our standard approach in which we encourage our clients to fully participate in the inspection.

After the inspection report is sent to you, we will do a full review of the report over the phone, and we are available for questions at any time, as always. If you insist on attending, if possible, we ask that you limit your attendance to just yourself. Please don’t bring the kids, parents, contractors, and others.

During the inspection, we will wash our hands frequently using our own hand soap and towel. We will also bring sanitizer wipes to disinfect items that we have touched during the inspection, such as faucets. If hand washing is not possible, we will also have hand sanitizer with us. We also have latex gloves and will use those if deemed necessary, but everything we’ve researched suggests that hand washing is the best course of action.

If requested by anyone present at the inspection, we will wear a face mask.

None of our inspectors will attend an inspection if they show signs of a fever or a cough or any other symptoms of illness.

By taking these steps, we want to make sure people can continue to receive the benefits of a home inspection while respecting the current reality of COVID-19.
