Is It Safe To Remodel During COVID-19?
Has it been a while since you made any updates to your home? Most of us have spent months indoors lately. Maybe this is the year to call a remodeling contractor. Whether you want a kitchen or bath remodel, or a whole home update, you know you need a skilled professional. But is it really safe to remodel during the pandemic?
The good news is that some remodeling companies have found ways to navigate these challenging times by taking extra precautions. As per recommendations from federal, state and local officials, essential business industries are allowed to operate under strict protective measures and protocols. Read on to learn more about how the Gordon Reese Design Build team is putting your safety first.
Our Own Take

On-Site Safety Protocols
Gordon Reese Design Build employees are held to the same strict standards that have been mandated for other essential workers during the pandemic. For instance, all of our remodelers must wash their hands for at least twenty seconds, and refrain from touching their eyes, nose or mouth. Tools and equipment aren’t shared without proper sanitation. Similarly, the team can’t congregate in large crowds in the lunch area.
Each remodeler wears personal protection equipment (PPE), uses hand sanitizer (if soap is not available), and makes sure that PPE is disposed of properly after use. We also make sure that we disinfect reusable safety equipment. In some work areas, we use HEPA air filtering systems to block out air contaminants and pollutants. And, of course, we follow all of these protocols during every client visit at the worksite, maintaining social distancing standards.
