COVID- 19 Updated Policy
An inspector is a vital part of the real estate transaction. Inspections are considered an essential business during COVID-19. White Glove believes that we can continue to service our customers and clients during the current health alerts for COVID-19. White Glove has adopted the InterNACHI and IEMA recommended standards for continuing to provide high-quality inspections and services while still being prudent, safe, and taking precautions in accordance with government recommendations and orders.

White Glove respectfully asks that only the buyer or buyer/s named on the purchase contract be at the inspection. Attendance will be capped at two (2) clients/buyers not including real estate agent/s. We respectfully ask that you consider not attending at all, this is for the health, safety, and well-being of our inspectors, and all others who may live at or come in contact with the property.
Anyone attending the inspection will be required to wear a mask in accordance with the current state of Illinois mandates, as well be following CDC recommendations, and social distancing.
