COVID-19 Home Inspection Safety Protocol

The health and well-being of our home inspectors, their clients, and Real Estate agents is of utmost importance. To ensure that home inspections can continue to be conducted safely, we have initiated the following protocols so that the process can continue.

Everyone involved with the home inspection is responsible for helping with safety. The following protocol is based on current recommendations from the CDC, NIH, & WHO. We understand that this situation is changing constantly, and we will monitor the CDC for official updates and recommended behavior.

Our Inspectors:

  • Will reschedule the inspection if they feel sick, or they exhibit any symptoms of respiratory illness.
  • Will use hand sanitizer before entering the home and disinfect their shoes.
  • Before entering homes, they will put on exam gloves, disposable shoe covers, and a medical face mask.
  • Will not shake hands, bump fists, or touch elbows.
  • Will avoid touching their faces.
  • After each inspection, our inspectors will wash their hands and disinfect their shoes, all equipment, and tools used during the inspection to prevent cross contamination.

For Buyers and Real Estate Agents:

  • If you wish to attend the home inspection, please do so only at the end of the inspection. If you do not attend the inspection, our inspector will call you at the end of the inspection and provide a verbal summary as well as deliver the report to you within 24 hours via email.
  • Do not bring children, relatives, contractors, and others to the inspection. Reschedule the inspection if you wish to attend, but you feel sick, or if you exhibit symptoms of a respiratory illness.
  • Use hand sanitizer before entering and before leaving the home.
  • Touch as few things in the home as possible.

For Sellers:

  • Reschedule the inspection if anyone in the home feels sick or exhibits symptoms of a respiratory illness.
  • Do not attend the inspection. Make arrangements for children, relatives, and others to be out of the home during the inspection.
  • Wipe bathroom and kitchen fixtures, toilet handles, and doorknobs with a sanitizing wipe before the inspection.
