Hiring a contractor for doing work inside your home these days is difficult. Many contractors have suspended work, which increases the difficulty of the hiring process and having a contractor working inside the customer’s home raises various safety concerns, too. However, there are repairs and jobs inside the home that cannot wait – if you are faced with a plumbing emergency or your HVAC system breaks down, the repair cannot be postponed until the current crisis resolves. However, many of the construction companies in Colorado have kept safe and made the necessary changes. Fortunately, any work inside your home can be made quite safe, provided you respect some precaution measures:
- Wear protective gear – wearing a face mask and disposable rubber gloves is essential for your safety as well as for the safety of your contractor;
- Maintain the distance – stay at least 6 feet away from the contractor and the members of the contractor’s team;
- Don’t stay in the same room with the team – let your team do their work, leave the room until they are finished;
- Air the room and disinfect all the surfaces – when the work is complete and your team has left, put on your mask and your gloves again and disinfect all the surfaces in the room where the work has been performed. When you are done cleaning, open the windows in the room and keep them open for as long as you can to make sure that the space gets properly vented.
