The year 2020 has been challenging for everyone amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Between shutdowns, school closures, and travel restrictions, we’ve all adapted to changes to keep ourselves, our families, and others around us safe. It’s been no different for professional electricians throughout Canada. At TCA Electric, our team has been committed to providing high-quality electrical services while keeping our residential customers protected against the spread of the virus. What have we done, and what else should you know about electrical work during the pandemic? Let’s take a quick look.
Residential electrical services deemed essential
Here at TCA Electric, we provide a wide array of electrical services covering the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors. All of this work has been considered essential, enabling us to continue operating during the COVID-19 pandemic. This shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise—even during a pandemic, people need to keep their lights on and heat running. This applies to both homeowners and owners of essential businesses.
Residential electrical services have been especially critical during this time. Due to the sharp increase in remote work and online classes, people have been spending more time in their homes than ever. That means a reliable electrical system can be the difference between making it to work and school or not! Luckily, you can be confident that if something happens to your home’s electrical systems, you’ll still be able to find a residential electrician to address the problem.
Virtual project consultations ensure social distancing
Operating as an essential business doesn’t mean it’s business as usual, however. At TCA Electric, we’ve taken several steps to ensure we’re serving our customers as safely as possible. That starts with our virtual electrical project consultations. While we value face-to-face interactions with our customers very highly, it simply makes more sense during the pandemic to keep as many aspects of our business virtual as possible. With virtual electrician consultations from TCA, you can share the details of your electrical needs and get a quote, all 100% remotely.
Safety on the job and our COVID-19 protocols
Of course, our team will still need to enter your home or business to provide our residential and commercial electrical services. That’s why we’ve put specific company protocols in place to ensure the safety of you, your family, and our team members. Some of the steps we’ve taken to provide our services safely include:
- Supplying all field crew teams with disposable gloves, masks, hand sanitizer, and disinfectant wipes
- Developing crew guidelines that include instructions on cleanliness, job site interactions and distancing, and proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE)
- Establishing protocols for notifying customers, contractors, and crew if a team member is exposed to COVID-19 or begins showing symptoms
With these precautions in place, our TCA Electric team is prepared to continue providing excellent service and professional electrical work while meeting the unique challenges of the ongoing pandemic.
