Keeping Your Family Safe from COVID-19 When Workers Are in the Home

Written by jsolloway on . Posted in , .

To keep your family safe from Coronavirus, ensure that any service provider in your home is a minimum of six feet away at all times.  Visitors should be sanitizing their equipment and washing their hands before and after the service call.  If possible, masks should be worn to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 and any surfaces touched should be kept to only those necessary areas.

Minimize Person to Person Contact with Service Providers

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to plague the country, there are instances when homeowners must allow outside service providers into their home.  This can be anyone from a plumber or electrician to a contractor or restoration team.  Neglecting to have these necessary services and maintenance done on your home, can have implications down the road as even small problems can become bigger.

When having a service provider in your home it is important to ensure that you maintain a minimum of six feet of distance to keep everyone safe.  Providers should be sanitizing any tools that they are bringing into the home before and after use, and washing their hands thoroughly.  Try to minimize the areas of the home that are accessible to the worker.  This may mean opening a back door to allow them entry, instead of walking through the entire home and limiting use of the bathroom unless absolutely necessary.

Many service providers are now focusing on contact-less work in a client’s home.  This includes payment, contracts and any other exchange of paperwork being done remotely before or after the visit.  Ensuring that there is nothing to sign, allows the provider to complete their job quickly with as little contact with the homeowner as possible.

Taking These Precautions Can Protect You and Your Family from the Spread of COVID-19

It is possible, and many times necessary, to safely have a service provider in your home.  All companies should only be sending workers that are healthy and symptom-free.  Equipping them with masks when in a homeowner’s house and sanitizing regularly can go a long way to preventing the spread of COVID-19, while still allowing for the regular upkeep of our homes.

All Soil-Away restoration teams have been taking these precautions to protect homeowners when our workers are in the home.  This diligence will go a long way to reducing the spread of COVID-19.

If your home is affected by fire or water damage, contact the professionals at Soil-Away.  Call 603-641-6555.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
