House Painting, COVID-19, and How We Protect Your Safety
We take your health and safety very seriously. We’re also very interested in maintaining a safe workplace for our people. When it comes to house painting, COVID-19, and how we protect your safety, the following information provides how we do it. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
Since we’re a family run business – meaning the people working on your property are family members, Diaz Painting is in a bit of a different situation than some painting companies. We keep track of any illnesses and check temperatures.
When we’re meeting with you and working in your home during an estimate or while completing an interior painting project, we’ve added COVID-19 related safe work practices -these including safe distancing with customers, use of masks, and sanitizing wipes and hand sanitizers. Our clean up process remains very comprehensive – leaving your home in as clean or better condition than when we started your project.
When working on an exterior painting project, we limit in-person meetings and use our COVID-19 related safe work practices when those meetings are necessary. Exterior painting projects are typical of exterior and significantly lower exposure to others – outside of the Diaz Painting team members.
We stay in compliance and in-step with the California State Health Department guidelines and recommendations. We also stay up to date on the COVID-19 General Checklist for Construction Employers dated July 2, 2020, and the Guidance for Construction Employers. That checklist and guidelines are intended to help construction employers implement their plan to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace.
Diaz Painting doesn’t cut any corners in our house painting, COVID-19, and how we protect your safety.
California State guidelines (below) have defined commercial and residential painting as an essential business. It is understood that maintenance, repairs, and restoration on your home or property should continue and is fully approved.
