Thank you for helping to keep everyone safe over the past three years by masking on my inspections! I NEVER had to cancel or reschedule an inspection due to illness (knock on wood) and for that I am so grateful. I no longer require masks on inspections, though they are certainly appreciated.
Personally, I have no plans to stop masking indoors, but I ask everyone involved in the home inspection please stay home if you are sick! There are several illnesses going around and I’m not interested in ANY of them! For a tiny business like mine, sick days can be devastating and getting sick is still not worth the risk to me…. not to mention the havoc it can wreak on a time-sensitive real estate transaction! I won’t hesitate to cancel/reschedule an inspection if someone shows up sick and refuses to mask or refuses to leave. I will also physically distance from anyone who is unmasked and I still prefer to open windows (weather permitting) during the inspection.
For now, I will continue to do virtual reviews which have been surprisingly popular. Contract signing will be contactless through Docusign. I will still send invoices via Square, but check or cash payments are always welcome!
