Commercial Decontamination During the COVID-19 Outbreak

While the entire country is being affected by the Coronavirus outbreak, we knew our community needed us now more than ever. We are proud to be on the frontlines of these difficult times and are dedicated to keeping everyone safe. If we can all do our part to prevent the spread, we will soon come out of this stronger than ever. 

 

There are a lot of businesses being forced to close their doors; while difficult, it’s only for the best. Still, many businesses remain open during this time and it’s essential they take their role in this outbreak seriously. If you’re a decision-maker or owner, you need to ensure your business is properly prepared if it were to be contaminated.

 

It is important to remember that there’s a difference between disinfecting and decontaminating something. Disinfecting is typically done as a precaution, but decontamination will only occur when there’s a presumed or known contaminant that needs to be removed immediately. Once the contamination is determined, you have to be ready to act fast! 

 

At WeDry USA, we are prepared for you. All it takes is one call and you have us at your service. We know you have a business to run, so we make it a point to decontaminate your commercial space as quickly and diligently as possible. 

 

Is Your Business Prepared?

 

You’ll need a strict plan to follow in moments like this. Too many businesses will procrastinate putting this plan together until it’s time to use it. Unfortunately, it’s almost always too late at that point. If you want to ensure your company is prepared from top to bottom, you’ll need this plan signed, sealed, and delivered. 

 

First, you’ll want to have relationships with the right people and service companies. After all, they’ll be the ones doing all the work. If your business is contaminated, you need to feel confident that your decontamination (DECON) company will pick up their phone when it’s time to. 

 

Secondly, you’ll need procedures for your employees to follow. Contamination will mean you won’t have access to your commercial space. Communication will be highly important for this to go smoothly and prevent any panic among your workers. 

 

Lastly, you need to be ready to act. You have a plan in place, your employees know what to do, now it’s time to implement everything you’ve prepared for so your company doesn’t skip a beat. Together, we can get you back on your feet in no time!

 

What to Look For In a DECON Company

 

If you’ve been crawling the web for DECON services, you’ve likely come across a wide range of companies. Keep in mind your business will have to rely on this service during a vulnerable time, so don’t just select the first company you come across. 

 

You’ll want a company that’s experienced, but ideally, one that specializes in virus decontamination. They’ll also need the proper equipment to get the job done, including protective gear and cleaning equipment (respirators, foggers, misters, etc.). 

 

Being diligent is also important. As much as you want your business open immediately, you also want to make sure they’re doing a good job.
