Business and community leaders have a lot of pressure on them right now. Dealing with the COVID-19 crisis has been a strain on everything from finances, HR, logistics and beyond. During these challenging times it is important that we have expert resources that we can rely on. This even includes the cleaning industry which seems more important than ever right now. This blog is to help business and community leaders figure out how to hire the right company for coronavirus (COVID-19) deep cleaning at their facilities.
The motivation for this blog came from a conversation I had with a gentleman a couple weeks ago. He called the Soil-Away office to get my thoughts on “jumping” into the coronavirus cleaning business. “I just bought a fancy fogger machine and some cleaning chemicals,” he told me. “I am ready to start disinfecting buildings.” Cringing, but trying to remain composed and respectful, I asked him what he did prior to getting into this business. His response: paving.
I love entrepreneurship and highly encourage it. I also love people’s ability to identify a problem and try to solve it. However, I also value expertise and experience. Especially in the middle of a worldwide pandemic. While cleaning is not rocket science, cleaning and disinfecting buildings for infectious diseases is a different animal. As you look for the right partnerships to help support your organization during the COVID-19 crisis, be cautious of who you are working with. Are you about to hire someone who “just bought a fancy fogger machine” or a company that is fully trained and certified to deal with a very serious problem?
With many people jumping into the “coronavirus cleaning gold-rush” right now, you must be extra thorough in screening your contractors. With any crisis comes the risk of scams and unscrupulous people looking to take advantage of the dire situation. Most peoples’ intentions are good, but you still must do your due diligence. Here are some simple, but important questions to ask before you hire a company for coronavirus (COVID-19) cleanup services.
As a consumer, do your best to identify an expert company versus one just selling a “one-size-fits-all” solution. There is no magic bullet for fighting battle against coronavirus in our facilities. It is advisable to find a company who does a proper needs assessment and offers options. Every organization has a different situation and a customized plan should be developed. It does not have to be complicated or exorbitantly priced. It does, however, need to employ common sense, expertise and deliver results. That is the best way to navigate through a pandemic such as COVID-19.
