Good morning, Cheltenham. Here we go again…

I must admit, it felt pretty dispiriting to hear we were to go into a second lockdown. I feel particularly for our local businesses in the hospitality sector that are forced to close their doors. All we can hope for is that as many of us as possible manage to stick to the guidelines & do what we can to keep one another safe.

Green Man have taken the decision to continue to work.

We upgraded our Covid-19 working protocols last Friday to ensure we remain compliant.

Specifically, we are:

  • Maintaining a more than safe distance between ourselves & our customers (we are asking customers to either be out of the house or, at the very least, never in the same room as our technicians)
  • Wearing masks throughout the duration of any job
  • Sanitising any touch-points we have interfaced with at the end of the job

As a small local business, we have to try and stay working if we can.

I appreciate that some may disagree with this.

Unfortunately, as self-employed tradesmen (and women, Ellie!) we are not guaranteed the same rights as those eligible for furlough. It looks as though the chancellor may have increased our entitlement, but the message seems to be that we should continue to work until told otherwise.

Other news

Aside from the misery that is Covid, the good news is that we have been working to improve our offering.

We have recently invested in new kit & upgrades to be able to better deliver urine treatments. Never a glamorous service, but absolutely a key part of our offering!

The new kit enables us to more effectively tackle the sub-floor and underlay as part of our process. We have sourced an industry-standard new solution that powers through the ammonia compounds & nitrogen build-ups that urine causes.

If you have any questions about this, or anything related to our range of carpet, hard-floor, rug, stone or upholstery cleaning services, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

Take care, stay safe,

Jon (Director)
