A professional snagger has the duty of providing a defect report of your newly built home and identifying snags. This requires the professional snagger to enter the building, in order to get an accurate and honest account of the build, in order to grasp what they need to do. However, it’s crucial to know what precautions a professional snagger should take when working in your home, especially if you are vulnerable or understandably wary about the virus. Keeping the staff and customers safe should be the main priority.
Precautions a Professional Snagger Should Take
When visiting your home to conduct a snag report, the professional snagger should firstly be aware of anyone vulnerable/shielding/isolating within your home. This should be a conversation that is had prior to the visit, so they are able to equip themselves with the correct PPE in order to protect both themselves and you. If they do not carry out this conversation prior, this shows that they are careless and you should find another professional snagger.
When they are safely able to enter our home, they should remain 2 metres away from you and your family at all times. There is no need for them to be any closer to you, as they will conduct their report, inform you, and then leave. If they cross this boundary, be sure to notify the company and emphasise that the snagger who visited you was not cautious.
During their visit, they should sanitise their hands both before and after. As well as this, they should be equipped with a mask and disposable gloves, so they are not spreading any germs as they go through your home. This should be the basic uniform the professional snagger is provided with.
Opening windows and doors to allow ventilation is something that you can do prior to the professional snagger visiting. This allows air to flow through the house, and any airborne bacteria to exit the premises. As well, ensure your family is in a separate room while the they conduct their research, for extra safety precautions.
