2021 COVID Protocol Revision

In March 2020, I established a COVID-19 safety protocol for my business. I have done some slight revisions since we now have a much better understanding of the virus and how it spreads. I still have strict measures in place to protect you, myself, and our community.

I am now allowing clients to come to inspections. Hooray! As always, it’s best to come at the end for a review of my findings. If clients want to reduce contact and not be present I am still happy to do reviews via Zoom or phone, and I offer contactless payment options.

If the sellers give their ok, realtors can just give me a code and I am happy to get to work without any contact until the end of the inspection or at review if someone chooses to be present.

I still expect everyone to wear facemasks if they choose to be present. Honestly, I have not had a client or realtor show up without one. We’ve all pretty much got this down now! I also expect to maintain social distancing, 10’ inside, 6’ outside and masked at all times.

I am continuing to wear an N-95 while inside any home. I bring my own soap and a small towel to dry my hands and I wash my hands several times during the inspection. I am still using antibacterial wipes to wipe down high touch surfaces in occupied and vacant homes at the end of each and every inspection.

I leave a note at each house stating the measures I have taken. I think this has really helped sellers who are living in their homes during the sale and inspection of their home feel much more comfortable.

COVID-19 Update

Hello Everyone!

I just want to let you all know that unless things change,

I am still doing home inspections, BUT

I am implementing substantial precautions to reduce exposure for everyone.

To protect the client, homeowner, and realtors, I will be:

  • Bringing my own soap and clothes to wash and dry my hands about 6x during the average inspection. (My hands hurt from so much handwashing, yours probably do too!)
  • Bringing my own hand sanitizer and using it about 4x during the inspection.
  • Using antibacterial wipes to wipe down all high touch surfaces in the house after the inspection (knobs, switches, faucets)

I am also asking realtors and clients to NOT attend inspections. I will use Zoom or Google Duo to review inspections with the client and/or realtor.

If a client insists on an in-person review, I ask that we maintain a distance of 6’ outside (weather permitting) or 10’ while inside.

To prevent me from being a carrier,

We have implemented the following measures at home:

  • No visitors.
  • No kids other our own in our house (I have a 12-year-old son).Everyone washing with soap and water when coming inside from anywhere, and before going out.
  • Everyone washing hands with soap and water when coming inside from anywhere, and before going out.
  • Disinfecting door knobs at least 2x a day.
  • Making sure our son uses hand sanitizer when riding with friends outside, and maintaining a safe distance.
  • No contact games.
  • My husband is working from home and using the same measures.
  • We are having groceries and supplies delivered.
  • We are limiting trips outside of the house to those absolutely necessary, other than taking walks while keeping a safe personal distance from others. (Except for walks, my husband has not been out of the house in almost a week.)

All of us are adjusting to this unprecedented situation. If you have any questions about my new protocols, please call or text me on my personal line:


To schedule an inspection, please continue doing so online or by calling my answering service at 971-666-11184

I’m grateful for the beautiful weather and to still be able to do my job so you can do your job!

See you in the field! Wait, no… I won’t see you in the field but I hope to see you on my schedule!
