Your Business and COVID-19

August 14th, 2020

            These are most certainly unprecedented times. In January, news of COVID-19 was barely a footnote. In February, the US began seeing a slow rise in cases in a small handful of states. The CDC and the federal government began taking steps to control the virus, indicating it would be under control in a few weeks if all steps were followed. Here we are now six-months later, and the virus lingers on with just north of 5-million cases and over 167,000 deaths and climbing by the day.

            With this, however, the US economy continues to try and push forward, implementing the best policies and procedures possible in order to give employees and customers the best opportunity to work or shop in an environment which has been professionally cleaned. But there are some steps you can take as a business owner and/or manager that will help our Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned program be a supplement to your current cleaning procedures. Here are some elements of consideration when reviewing your current policies and procedures:

  • What are some bottleneck areas in your facility where employees and/or customers could get congested? Can a modification of the flow of traffic help mitigate this issue?
  • Are tables, counter spaces, kiosks, etc., spaced enough so as to ensure maximum accessibility while keeping close consideration of social distancing.
  • Are the current cleaning procedures and products being utilized in line with EPA and CDC guidelines? If not, what needs to be modified by which to align or exceed those guidelines?
  • What are other facilities similar to yours doing?

SERVPRO of LBL North has led the way in this area for meeting with business owners, bank managers, and public officials in our area to discuss some of the best ways to combat this ever evolving situation. Our Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned program is a great addition to any organization, as it comes with the exchange of information and consultation as to how to best navigate these times, along with the confidence that once our team leaves your facility, your environment has been cleaned by the best in the business.

            For more information, please refer to the CDC website for additional guidance, and the EPA for a list of approved products available by which to effectively limit exposure to COVID-19.
