Even if you’re back working at your office, you’re not gallivanting around town during your free time. There’s a good chance that this has made you realize there are some things that need to be done around your home. Whether it’s a fresh coat of paint, the need for pest-control, or you’ve just come to the realization that your house isn’t big enough for everyone to be spending so much time there together, if you’re going to make some home improvement moves (or just move) here are three steps you should take to keep yourself safe.Don’t hire whoever is cheapest: It’s pretty easy to find someone to come out and do work at your house right now, and it’s great that you can help out small business owners and their employees during this difficult time. While you might normally shop around to hire someone who’s got a good reputation and is somewhat affordable, right now you should change your thinking. If you’re looking to keep your home COVID-free, find out which company has the best safety practices during this crazy time. Don’t be satisfied with the first company you talk to. Make some calls. Paying a little extra for workers who are focused on keeping your home sanitary is definitely the way to go in 2020.Don’t hire anyone if you don’t have to: You may want to avoid re-shingling your roof or trying to be an amateur electrician, but there are a lot of jobs you can handle yourself. The right YouTube videos and a little elbow grease can go a long way. Let the experts handle the complicated stuff, but for anything easy to learn, try it yourself and keep strangers’ germs out of your home.Prepare your budget: Another good way to keep your home germ free is to plan ahead and make sure you have the tools you need to kill any germs that could be waiting to enter your home. Have extra PPE available for anyone who’s doing work at your house and make sure to sanitize any surfaces or handles that anyone has touched/will touch while working. If you’re renting something like a carpet cleaning machine or a moving truck, remember to sanitize the parts you have to touch while making use of these tools.last_img read more
