COVID-19 AND PRO SPEX
As of October 2020
Updated Safety Protocols
Our Office and Staff have been operating in our Main St Office with some limitations. We have been working diligently to make sure we can accommodate our Clients in accordance with the guidelines by State and health officials. For the safety of our clients, employees, and the safety of the occupants of the homes we inspect, this is what we’re doing:
We are engaging our clients during their home inspection as long as they maintain CDC Covid-19 Guidelines. We are still limiting the number of people who can accompany the Inspector during an inspection - the Client and the Client's Agent/Rep. Masks MUST be worn at all times and Social Distancing MUST be maintained at all times. Gloves are also recommended, but not mandatory. The Inspector can cancel an inspection at his/her discretion if they feel their health is being threatened.
If our clients are attending, they must make contact with their Inspector and follow the Inspector's directions about who may enter the home and at what times.
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 the seller is present, we will request that they wear a mask during the inspection for everyone's safety.
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.
A full briefing by conference call (video/screen share) is an option that can still be enforced after we’ve sent out the report.
These steps apply to all Pro Spex staff: our inspectors, our radon technicians, and our sewer scope technicians.
We will also ask if our clients are showing any signs of illness, that they do not attend. Also, if they live with those at a higher risk, they should also consider the potential risk to others and their loved ones, and not attend.
