Home &  WETT Inspections during Covid-19

A Letter to Clients from the Owner of On Sight Home Inspection

"We’ve seen a lot of unprecedented events over the past few weeks related to the coronavirus outbreak, and we as a company are staying current with this ever-changing situation. At On Sight Home Inspection, the safety of our clients, Realtors and the safety of the occupants of the homes we inspect are of utmost importance.

 

Here is what we are doing as a company to help keep everyone safe. While we typically encourage our clients to attend the home inspection, we are temporarily changing that request. We are now respectfully asking for no one to attend the home inspection other than the home inspector and the Realtor (if necessary). We will gladly review each inspection over the phone once the inspection is completed. 

While on-site, we will take the following steps to help maintain a sanitary environment in people’s homes:

  • Only 1 Inspection will be conducted on any given day. This ensures that all tools have been disinfected and that clean clothes are worn in the home

  • Latex gloves will be worn during the inspection

  • Wash hands multiple times during every inspection, especially after touching things like faucets and door handles

  • Bring hand towels or paper towels for drying our hands

  • We will keep hand sanitizer nearby and use it when needed

  • If available, we will use disinfectant wipes or the equivalent on faucets and door handles

  • We will not shake hands or bump fists

  • Business cards will not be handed out or left behind

  • We will avoid touching our faces

  • If requested by the seller, we will wear a mask during the inspection

  • If we have a fever or cough, we will not conduct the inspection

The company will continue to monitor this dynamic situation, and will adjust any of these policies as needed or recommended to help ensure everyone’s safety."

 Lead Inspector
