Keeping your home safe and carrying out repairs
During lockdown, we continued to complete emergency repairs and essential compliance related safety checks and remedial works, including gas servicing and electrical testing in your home. This is to ensure your health and safety and to meet the requirements of our regulator.
From 1 June 2020, we restarted our non-emergency repairs service, so long as we can maintain social distancing and can continue to follow government guidance. We have also put extra measures in place to make sure you are protected; this includes Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for our operatives, which they may wear if required on their visit to your home.
We have put together a short video to explain how we can make sure that our repairs and essential compliance checks can be completed as safely as possible during coronavirus (COVID-19).
This video can be viewed on our website www.progressgroup.org. uk/coronavirus-repairs together with some helpful how-to videos on:
• What to do in the event of a gas emergency
• How to switch off the electrics in an emergency
• How to turn off your water supply
• How to unblock a toilet
• What to do if your pipe or sink is blocked.
