Can we work if no one is home?
Here is a transcription, if you prefer to read instead:
“Another big question that we get often is, “Can we work if the homeowner or none of the occupants are there?” Absolutely, we do it all the time. We are bonded; we are insured. Just for safe measure, you always want to secure your valuables just to eliminate doubt. But yes, we can work when no one is there. We do it practically on every job that we work on. Especially if it’s an occupied residence, people sometimes have concerns about those kinds of things. Vacant residences like investment properties, properties they have just purchased and haven’t moved into yet, not a problem. You don’t necessarily need to be there.
The things that are definitely required will be electricity. If it’s one of those properties that you’re moving into or moving out of or even an investment property, you definitely need electricity because we need to run our equipment off of your electricity. Also, you’re going to want to have heat if it’s in the winter or in the fall when heat is required. Flooring, adhesive, carpeting when it comes to be stretched and that sort of thing, they really require a temperature over 68 degrees. We don’t necessarily like that because it makes it more difficult to work, especially if you’re working up a sweat already. But it’s what has to be done, what the manufacturer requires. So you definitely want to remember to have heat and power.”
