There is no shortage of great tips being circulated by community leaders.  Messages seem to be consistent addressed to the business sector, that we are ready to unite together to get back to business, taking safety measures in our own hands.  President of The Harrisburg Regional Chamber, Dave Black, recently posted the following,

“Safety is the priority for your employees and their families, yourself and your family, and your customers/clients and their families. These resources provide guidance to help you operate safely, consistent with CDC guidelines.”

Considering the time frame that most businesses have been closed, Service1st Restoration is encouraging companies and individuals to consider the following emergency tips now, in order to reopen successful:

  • If your building is currently unoccupied due to the Covid-19 crisis and you are planning to reopen in the near future, clean now.  Prepare by getting ready, avoiding the rush of all government buildings and other facilities prepping to reopen at the same time.  It will be safer and more economical to clean and disinfect now, prior to the return of your personnel.
  • Due to COVID-19, facilities indoor air quality (IAQ) may be of concern.  If your facility has been closed and stagnant, with your air systems shut down or running less frequently, these items along with less movement in your facility could create opportunity for indoor air issues.  Take proactive measures and have an IAQ assessment completed prior to employees re-entering the space. Indoor air quality (IAQ) is the air quality within and around buildings and structures. IAQ is part of indoor environmental quality (IEQ), which includes IAQ as well as other physical and psychological aspects of life indoors (e.g., lighting, visual quality, acoustics, and thermal comfort).
  • EPA’s Indoor Environments Division (IED) provides guidance on how to help build the capacity of communities to understand and avoid indoor and outdoor health impacts. Learn more about Indoor Air Quality through the EPA
  • Provide reassurance to your employees by addressing the proactive measures you have taken and implemented to re-open and stay open.  Disinfecting fogging applications can be provided on a one time or a consistent basis.  The thoroughness of the fogging application supersedes any regular cleaning service and will provide a greater sense of confidence that your environment is disinfected.
