Q&A : When tradies leave a mess

Q. I got my free insulation installed last week but you should see the muddy footprints those blokes in overalls and face masks stomped through the house. I spent all evening cleaning up after them!
A. Naughty, naughty. A nice tradesperson would clean up after themselves. And say ‘please’, ‘thank you’ and ‘what a nice home you have’. Unfortunately, not all tradies are as well bred as we home-loving types expect. The correct thing to do is ask the installers to clean up their mess before they leave rather than let them escape to take their muddy boots elsewhere. Most tradies carry some basic cleaning tools or will obligingly ask to borrow yours to leave a job spotless.  But be nice to those insulation installers. There’s going to be a rush on given the government is handing out $1600 freebies and they probably have to hire a heap of fresh, muddy newbies who are willing to wear those silly overalls and climb into ceiling cavities.
