Anastasia Moore 3 July 2020 12:20:54After a period of great uncertainty, the UK government have started to make steps to ease the Covid 19 lockdown. One of those steps has been to encourage those who cannot work from home, to get back to work safely. With a wide range of working environments to consider, what does that mean for flooring contractors, who are regularly required to enter and work inside other people’s homes.
Whether you’re an employer, employee or self-employed it is important to consider the steps you will take to minimize risk when you return to work. The following steps can be used as a guide to returning to work safely.
Conduct a risk assessment- Assess the situation so that you understand the risks and do everything reasonably practicable to minimise risk.
Social distancing- Maintain a minimum one meter distance between yourself and anyone else at any given time.
Minimize time spent in other people’s homes- whenever possible, prepare anything that can be done remotely ahead of time, and utilize quick install products reducing the amount of time needed in the home.
Disinfect- Maintain a clean working environment by disinfecting on arrival, disinfecting on departure and washing hands regularly whilst working.
Striving to tackle some of the key considerations above, you can use our Expona EnCore Rigid Loc range to get back to work safely in just 3 easy steps.
Select remotely- Your customers can use our room visualiser and samples service to select products from home.
Consult virtually- request your customers project details and measurements via a video call.
Install quickly- minimum subfloor prep is required and a 5Gi locking mechanism ensures fast installation.
Expona EnCore is a unique floor covering, offering 12 faithfully replicated wood designs and superior performance. It is 100% waterproof, features an acoustic layer, provides underfoot comfort and has a PUR surface treatment, however, it is those attributes that make it quick to install that make Expona EnCore the ideal product to get back to work safely with.
Expona EnCore flooring can be installed over most hard subfloors and planks are loose laid using a 5Gi locking mechanism, meaning there is no need for adhesive. These properties make Expona EnCore much quicker to install than a traditional LVT product and when combined with the other steps above, you can really reduce the amount of time spent in your customers home.
Previewing Expona EnCore in any space is quick and easy to do with our room visualiser, and free samples can be ordered directly to your customers home.
