COVID-19 BEST PRACTICES
Detectpoint is monitoring and closely following the current outbreak of COVID-19. We are taking every precautionary measure and complying with health experts, state officials, and the CDC. We take into consideration the health and safety of every person including our clients, inspectors, and anyone in the local communities that we service.
He is a list of the measures we are taking to safely operate during this time.
• Any inspector/employee who does not feel well we are requiring them to stay home.
• Wear a new pair of gloves upon entering a home.
• Sanitize all equipment
• Avoid personal contact. Please understand that in this time, we’ll avoid handshakes and stick with waves and head nods.
• Practice social distancing with anyone who is in the home.
• Wear a protective mask or face covering, gloves and shoe boots at all times.
• Covering mouth for all coughs and sneezes to practice safe hygiene.
• Be aware of the safety and health of others while still following our preset guidelines to provide our usual high standard of service.
We know buying a home can be stressful with the added concerns of Covid19. We strive to provide the safest environment during our inspection. We operate with the set of best practices outlined below:
• If you are attending the home inspection, limit the number of anyone coming to the inspection. We suggest only 1 client representative to be present, 2 maximum including your realtor, and to wear any safety protection you may have.
• The client and/or representative present should avoid touching anything in the home, as much as possible, and simply observe.
• We are readily available by phone to go over any questions about the report after the inspection, whether you are attending the inspection or not.
We take every precaution to not be too invasive but we do need to maintain our high standard of service for our clients. We want to give you some suggestions for before and after the inspection to keep your home as safe as possible.
• Our goal is to limit our contact with any personal items, but we will need your help with this. We suggest that you provide access to all areas that will need to be inspected, so that it is not necessary to move any belongings. This includes things such as access to the attic, electric panel, every heating or AC system, main water supply/drain, water heater etc. Essentially, declutter areas so that the inspector can move freely through the home.
• The CDC encourages cleaning, sanitize and disinfecting any hard surfaces regularly and we encourage cleaning and disinfecting hard surfaces, countertops, thermostats, appliance kitchen handles, faucet/shower controls and doorknobs.
• If the buyer of your home is not using us for their inspection, it may be helpful for you to pass along the suggestions that we have for them in order to help protect your home.
