As 2020 continues on, so too, do the challenges of working in this unique environment. At Sylvestre Remodeling & Design, your health and safety are our utmost priority. We made the difficult decision to shut down operations for 6 weeks in April and May for the safety of our employees and our clients. We picked back up later in May and we are back to working full force now, with modifications. We have kept up to date with the Governor’s mandates, as well as all other regulations that have been handed down to businesses that are allowed to operate. We have developed a COVID Preparedness Plan (CPP), and have continued to update it as changes occur.
It is important for you to understand that we are taking COVID very seriously. We realize the unique opportunity we have as a residential remodeling business to continue working, while in your family’s personal space. All of our employees have reviewed the CPP and agree to abide by the precautions outlined within. In addition, we are reviewing this document with the homeowners before we begin the construction phase, as you are an integral part of this team as well.
Here are a few examples of ways we are changing how we do business on a daily basis, to adapt in the age of COVID:
- COVID disinfection station on every job site
- Abide by mask mandates applied to indoor work spaces
- Regular disinfection of high use surfaces in the owner’s home
- Practicing social distancing whenever possible
- COVID logbook to document people who enter workspace (for contact tracing)
- Utilizing Zoom and video meeting capabilities during the sales and design phase as applicable.
These are just a few examples of the ways we are changing how we work to increase the safety for our employees and clients. Please click the link of the COVID Preparedness Plan as well as the latest Governor’s mandate that is referenced within.
As we continue through life, there are few guarantees. Some say death and taxes, and although those are true, change too, is inevitable. This is a period of great change for our world, and it will become part of our new reality. We are honored for the opportunity to continue to work in your home, and will continue to do our part to keep us all safe.
