Covid-19 has changed the way that every business has to operate, even contractors! Keeping you & your crew safe is more important than ever, and while the way your business functions may have changed, it doesn’t have to be difficult to keep everything up and running, as long as you take a few extra precautions! If you’re interested in learning a bit about what you can do to help protect your crew at this time, check out our blog for more information!
Our first tip, for technologically savvy companies, is to provide virtual appointments and consultations! Rather than having to go meet with homeowners, wearing masks and gloves, adhering to social distancing guidelines, and making sure that everything is sanitized properly to protect your crew and the homeowners you’re working with, you can schedule virtual appointments with homeowners. Depending on what services you’re offering, you could simply offer online estimates, where customers take pictures of their roofs, siding, or windows for you to assess, or you could have zoom calls with the homeowners where they can explain their issues firsthand. Online appointments can still provide you with plenty of information, allowing you to make an accurate estimate for the homeowners, and giving you a clear picture of what the job will entail!
Limit Client/Crew Interaction
When your crew is working on the job site, be sure to limit the interaction between your employees and clients as much as possible. Be sure that everyone adheres to proper social distancing guidelines, particularly during the colder months. While it is easy to quarantine and distance when you’re actively sick, your clients or crew members could be carrying Covid-19 asymptomatically, making it crucial that you stay vigilant in order to keep everyone protected!
Clean & Disinfect Frequently
Particularly for indoor work, be sure to clean and disinfect commonly touched surfaces frequently. Since you’re touching all of the same surfaces as the homeowners you’re working for, and neither party is within each others bubble, you’ll want to disinfect surfaces and make sure the workspace is kept clean for the safety of both parties!
Don’t Forget The Basics
And of course, be sure to wear a mask, practice safe social distancing, and wash your hands! This is ultimately the best way to prevent the spread of Covid-19, and with a bit of attentiveness, you can carry on with business as usual while keeping everybody safe!
