With many people concerned about Covid-19, Troy's Home Inspection Service,

has taken steps to ensure, you can still get a quality home inspection and minimize risk to yourself and loved ones.

The below is take directly, from the American Society of Home Inspectors Website

"A home inspection is a vital part of a home purchase. ASHI believes that home inspections can continue during the COVID-19 outbreak, when prudent safety precautions are practiced, and when performing the inspection does not conflict with government orders and recommendations.

Everyone involved with the home inspection is responsible for helping with safety. The following advice is based on current recommendations from reliable sources. People should be aware that the situation is changing constantly. People should monitor reliable sources, and act if recommendations change.

  • Reschedule the inspection if you feel sick(or if I the inspector, feel sick), or if you exhibit symptoms of a respiratory illness.

  • Bring your own anti-bacterial soap, towel, hand sanitizer and shoe covers.

  • Use hand sanitizer before entering the home, and wash your hands as recommended before beginning the inspection.

  • Wear disposable shoe covers when entering the home.

  • Do not shake hands.

  • Avoid touching your face.

  • Wash your hands after inspecting each bathroom and the kitchen.

  • Wipe bathroom and kitchen fixtures and toilet handles with a sanitizing wipe after inspecting these areas. Be sure the wipe instructions allow use on the fixture or handle.
