We are putting the health and safety of homeowners, buyers, real estate agents, and NBI employees first during the Coronavirus Crisis and are working to promote safety first. During this time, we are asking our employees to be extra diligent with safety measures, to not work if they are feeling ill in any way, and to self-quarantine if they or any of their family members have been exposed to COVID-19.

To limit exposure to the virus, we are asking that only the buyer(s) and their real estate agent attend the inspections. If the occupant is home, please remind them to keep the social distancing standard with the inspectors. We ask all parties who are not feeling well to stay home and not attend the inspections. If the owner or occupant of the house is not feeling well, is elderly or at-risk, or has been exposed to the virus, please call us and we will reschedule the inspections to a time when the occupant will not be disturbed and the structure can be safely entered.

NBI inspectors are to follow The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, (NIOSH), which have existing guidelines and combinations of recommendations and approaches to conserve respirator supply while safeguarding workers health during shortages in pandemic situations. All inspectors are to use an additional respirator separate from their crawlspace-subarea mask for face-to-face encounters with clients.

Please call us if you have any questions regarding additional safety measures and guidelines we are taking during this time.
