Duraclean is open during this troublesome time. Our team has taken appropriate protocol that abides with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) standards to ensure the safety of our staff and customers. Technicians wear the proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), the equipment is disinfected after every job, and our staff has been trained on the importance of social distancing and personal hygiene and handwashing.
While performing the work is important, we feel guidance is a critical service as well. Customers frequently worry that a suspected or verified COVID-19 case means they must close their doors to address the situation. This is not always the case and most officials agree that closure isn’t usually necessary. However, immediate action is essential, and we recommend this four-step process.
LOCATE THE HAZARDS:
Identify areas that the infected person frequented, creating exposure risks. Identify and inform those who have been in contact with the infected person so they can take precautions or quarantine themselves as medical professionals and/or company policies indicate.
MITIGATE THE HAZARDS:
Close off and restrict access to areas that the infected person used within the last seven days. Increase ventilation by opening doors and windows. Wait 24 hours to begin cleaning to allow respiratory droplets to settle. Then clean and treat surfaces as current official guidelines advise. Many homeowners and businesses rely on trained experts like those at Duraclean to complete these hazard mitigation procedures.
IMPLEMENT SAFETY PROCEDURES FOR PATHOGENS:
Confirm that all occupants follow social distancing guidelines. Conduct regular health checks for people using the structure. Require sick people to stay home. Review and update cleaning methods and frequencies to ensure high-touch and high-traffic areas are regularly cleaned and sanitized.
PANDEMIC RESPONSE PLANS:
Review and update pandemic response plans to identify areas of improvement and ensure the plans address future contamination if there is a recurrence. Train your staff to handle specific parts of the pandemic plan.
