Essential services, such as building and construction, have been cautioned to distance themselves during their normal routine tasks. Due to safety practices this mostly entails distancing during encounters with clients and vendors and beefing up our sanitation procedures. But some of our clients say that they are feeling quite awkward when it comes to those encounters and how to perform a variety of tasks.
Doing Our Part
We take the coronavirus seriously and continue to take the extra precautions to ensure that our facility maintains exceptional cleanliness standards. Our showroom is now available by appointment only. In addition to a sanitizing clean every evening our team will be stringently pulling and wiping down any surfaces touched during consultations. Each piece sanitized properly before being replaced in our showroom. Additionally our staff have reviewed and are practicing hand cleansing and sanitation procedures between client visits as well as social distancing.
Distancing From Your Contractor
By now you’ve seen the interview where people are standing further apart than the recommended six feet. This is what we have explained to our contractors to continue to practice. But during certain activities, how does this work? Let’s answer those questions to ease your fears.
Payment: Paying by phone is simple. We recommend calling our office to arrange for payment once work is complete.
Delivery of Materials: Our team will gladly place any materials receipt in a neutral location. We recommend having your own pen to minimize contact between individuals. Your contractor will remain nearby enough to hear you, but still outside of the recommended 6 feet.
Installation: When you have contractors in your home or on your property it is recommended to remain outside of the area being worked on along with any walkways, entryways, or other areas. In fact, most property owners are choosing to remain away from projects until it’s time to check in or walk through.
Tight Spaces: When an area is particularly tight it is best to allow one individual to fully enter an area while the other keeps at their distance, or outside. Whenever possible turn on fans or outtake vents to increase air circulation.
Everywhere: It is now recommended to wear protective facial coverings to protect against the spread of COVID-19. Any time you might need to break that 6 foot barrier it is strongly urged to protect yourself, and others. gloves and eye protection are also a great idea, when available.
