After Care

CORONAVIRUS (COVID 19) - Updated July 2020

We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means;

  • You will be allocated an AM (08.00 – 12.00) or PM (13.00 – 16.00) appointment;
  • You must confirm in writing your acceptance of the AM or PM appointment;
  • You must confirm in writing 24 hours prior to the appointment that;
    • You and no one in the household have any coronavirus symptoms;
    • You and no one in your home is self-isolating;
    • You and no one in the household are shielding.
  • The sub-contractor will also be asked to provide written confirmation 24 hours prior to the appointment;
  • If we do not receive written confirmation the appointment will be cancelled and rescheduled;
  • If you fail to provide access at the allocated AM or PM appointment time having provided both forms of written confirmation, you will re-join the bottom of the priority list.

We thank you for your patience and support during this uncertain time. Our offices closed on the 23rd March and we have only recently re-opened. At this time we are only able to offer our aftercare services on a reduced basis and will be adhering to strict guidance at all times. The health and safety of our customers and colleagues is of utmost importance and we are continuing to monitor the situation closely. When our operatives attend your property we ask that you;

  • Keep your distance (2 metres apart);
  • Open windows to increase air flow and ventilation;
  • Limit contact with our operatives.

All operatives will be adhering to our site operating procedures for aftercare, should you wish to raise any specific health and safety concerns please call 0161 925 3227.
