Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who may be impacted by the Corona Virus/Covid-19.

The health and safety of our clients, Realtors and employees is of the utmost importance. We are continuing to monitor the guidelines of the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and our Federal, State and Local governments. We will update our policies as the need arises.

Due to the nature of our business, we must enter client’s/sellers homes and frequently interact personally with our customers and Realtors to perform our work. We understand and appreciate our clients and Realtors concerns during these trying times.

In order to protect our clients, Realtors and employees, we have instituted the following steps to mitigate the impact of our inspections in our client’s/sellers homes and our personal interactions with our clients and Realtors.

1) We will be wearing single use Nitrile exam grade gloves (non-sterile) on each inspection.

2) We will endeavor to maintain social distancing of 4-6′ whenever possible in all personal interactions.

3) We offer online credit/debit card inspection fee pre-payment options. If you do not feel comfortable meeting in person at the property to go over results, we would be happy to arrange a phone consultation following our inspection.

4) We will wear heavy duty shoe covers on interior portions of the inspection where possible (Shoe covers are not safe to wear while climbing ladders for example).

5) We will thoroughly wipe down our test equipment using Clorox Disinfecting wipes in between each inspection.

6) We will wear face masks while in the Seller’s homes performing our inspection.

7) Any inspector who is feeling ill will be required to stay home, their pay will not be affected.

If you have any other questions or concerns, we encourage you to reach out to us at any time via phone or email. Stay safe, take of yourselves and your families.

Last night the California Association of Realtors issued guidance stating specifically that Residential Real Estate is now considered an “Essential Industry” based on the latest update from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). You can read the official statement here:…/abo…/mediacenter/news/essentialservice

Since Governor Newsom’s March 4, 2020 order incorporates this list, the order now incorporates residential and commercial real estate, including settlement services, as essential services in California. However, if a city or county has an order with a more restrictive standard regarding what qualifies as an essential service, or more restrictions on activities, those guidelines will still govern the activities of those engaged in these essential services.

Sierra Inspection Services is here for you serving all of our home buyers, sellers and Realtors in these challenging times. We are performing inspections and will continue providing this essential service. We recommend verifying that your local city or county has not issued a more restrictive standard.
