COVID-19 AND PRO SPEX
On March 18, 2020
For the safety of our clients, employees, and the safety of the occupants of the homes we inspect, this is what we’re doing as a company to help keep everyone safe:
While we typically encourage our clients to attend the home inspection, we’re temporarily changing that request, until further notice. We’re no longer encouraging our clients to join us at the Home Inspection.
We’ll have a full briefing by conference call (video/screen share) after we’ve sent out the report. If our clients insist on attending, they must stay in their vehicle and follow the inspectors directions. In addition, only one person (subject to the inspectors discretion, may enter the home at any time.
While on-site, our inspectors will take the following steps to help maintain a sanitary environment in people’s homes:
Wash hands multiple times, with our own soap, during every inspection, especially after touching things like faucets and door handles.
Bring hand towels or paper towels for drying their hands.
If available, we’ll keep hand sanitizer nearby and use it when needed.
If available, use disinfectant wipes, or the equivalent, on faucets and door handles.
We will maintain "social distancing" and not shake hands or bump fists.
We will avoid touching our faces.
If requested by the seller, our inspector will wear a mask during the inspection.
If any of our inspectors have a fever or cough, they will not conduct the inspection. Another Inspector will perform the inspection, or it will be rescheduled.
These steps apply to all Pro Spex staff: our inspectors, our radon technicians, and our sewer scope technicians.
We will also ask that our clients do not touch anything in the home, and if they are showing any signs of illness, we will request that they do not attend.
With schools closing and kids being left home alone, it’s also important to note that we will not enter a home with minors present unless an adult for that family is present.
We will continue to monitor this dynamic situation, and we will adjust any of these policies as needed or recommended to help ensure everyone’s safety.
