Are trademen obliged to clean up wet mess they create?

Posted by Steven Jacobs, on
Are tradesmen obliged to clean up wet mess they create with an absorbent powder or something, or to make provision for example with a soak up bag to comply with HSE advice or directives?, Do the tradesmen you recommend do this? I had a British Gas engineer fix my combination boiler and he put an incontinence pad in above the electrics to stop them from getting wet, when he too it out water leaked on my floor. Are the people you recommend better or am I expecting toomuch?

Hi Steven, Sorry to hear of your poor experience. Whilst the topic of which you discuss is completely out of my remit may i remind you that Rated People do not recommend tradesman at all. It is for their previous customers to `rate `them on their personal experience. Its like trip advisor for contractors, being a tradesman member does not make you any better or recommended just the fact that they are prepared to stand up and be counted ie `Rated` Rgds Mick ARRC Ltd
