COVID-19 Practices

We have been continuing to follow the recommendations of the CDC very closely (in addition to our regular health and wellness precautions during and after our home and other building inspections). As more information and advice is provided by the CDC and local governments, we have been adapting our policies to stay at the forefront of health recommendations and ease our client’s worries.

At AcuSystem Inspections, our community is like our family, and we wish everyone to be safe and healthy. To help promote the health and safety of our clients, employees, business partners (like the realtors we work with), and the occupants of the homes or properties we are inspecting, we are adhering to the follow new regulations established by our company.
AcuSystem Inspections COVID-19 Action Plan

AcuSystem Inspections COVID-19 Action Plan

We understand concerns for COVID-19 and we are taking this situation seriously. Because we always have our customers best interest in mind, all our inspectors have taken and passed the new InterNACHI course on the Corona Virus for Home Inspectors. To learn more about the course, please visit COVID-19 Safety Guidelines for Home Inspectors Course.

Below is a list of additional precautions each of our inspectors will be taking when performing an inspection.

For Pre-Purchase Home Inspection Clients

Clients who do not feel comfortable attending a home inspection may opt to have their realtor attend the inspection in their place. Clients who are comfortable attending a home inspection are asked to only attend if they are feeling healthy and are not displaying any signs of illness. Attending clients and/or realtors are also asked to adhere to the current CDC guidelines.

With or without client attendance, we will conduct the inspection as thoroughly as we always have and will continue to provide a detailed digital report as well as implementing the new procedure of contacting clients who did not attend the inspection by phone to discuss our findings following the conclusion of the inspection.

For Pre-Purchase Home Inspection Clients

We want to put your mind at ease when opening your home to an inspection. We understand concerns for contracting or spreading the coronavirus (or its variants) and we will be working diligently to reduce the risk during an inspection of your home.

During home inspections conducted for the sale of the home, home occupants are typically not home. We ask that this practice is continued, even as many homeowners/home sellers may be home more often than normal right now.

During their time in your home or on your premise, our inspectors will be increasing their regular sanitation practices to reduce the risk of spreading germs to your home.
Our Other Inspection Clients
For annual home maintenance inspections, pre-listing home inspections (home inspections initiated by the seller), or other property inspections (like building inspections or termite inspections), we also ask these clients to only attend the inspection if they are feeling healthy and are not showing any signs of illness as well as maintaining CDC recommendations.
Our Increased Sanitation Practices
Our Increased Sanitation Practices
  • Hand sanitizer will be available to all inspectors to use in place of hand washing in the event hand washing is not an option.
  • Inspectors will use hand sanitizer before beginning any new inspection and will wash their hands for 20-30 seconds upon completion of a home inspection.
  • Inspectors will wash their hands or use hand sanitizer throughout the inspection, as needed, especially following instances of touching high-traffic areas such as door handles or faucets.
  • Inspectors will bring their own hand towel or paper towels to dry their hands.
  • Inspectors will use disinfecting wipes (or equivalent) on door handles, light switches, faucets, etc.
  • Inspectors have been advised to be mindful of face touching and increase avoidance of touching their faces.
  • Inspectors will not shake hands, bump fists, or conduct any other physical form of greeting.
  • Inspectors will wear a mask while on the premise if requested by the seller/client and/or mandated by the governing city/county.
  • Inspectors who are ill (including having a fever and/or a cough) or are not feeling well will not be allowed to conduct an inspection.
The home inspectors and team at AcuSystem Inspections will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation and the recommendations of the CDC. We will adjust our procedures as needed/recommended to ensure the safety and health of our employees, clients, and community.
