So you’ve had an outbreak of COVID-19 … now what?
It’s only a matter of time before COVID-19 shows up in your facility.
You’re ready. You’ve created and implemented your COVID-19 response plan. Workstations have been spread out; thermometers have been ordered; hand-sanitizer stations have been strategically placed throughout the building. You even have a rock-solid communications plan in place so you can explain to employees how you’re working to keep them safe and what they can do to help.
But then it happens: Someone who has been in your facility has tested positive for COVID-19. And you suddenly realize you aren’t as ready as you thought.
Breathe easy after your first COVID-19 case in 2 easy steps:
1. Don’t panic.
2. Call APEX.
Disinfecting is simple if done right.
At APEX Surface Care, we’ve been providing infection control services to battle contagions such as SARS, Ebola, Legionnaires’ disease, and the flu for the last decade. Since March alone, we've disinfected well over 50 million square feet of space throughout the United States, and we’ve done it right.
Frequently Asked Questions
How quickly can you help me?
Active cases are moved to the top of our priority list. Depending on your location and our schedule, our team often can be at your facility within hours.
Can you do this at night or over the weekend?
Absolutely. Our technicians have responded at all hours of the day and night to active COVID-19 cases.
How much will this cost?
Probably less than you think. We can give you an estimate over the phone based on your square footage and location. Usually, it’s similar to what you’d pay for a carpet cleaner.
What products do you use?
The disinfectant used in your facility should be food-safe, CRI-certified and on the EPA’s List N. Low toxicity equals fast and safe reoccupancy. Caution: Not every disinfectant on the EPA’s List N is safe. Make sure you know what is being used in your facility.
Do I need to pre-clean?
If your space has ongoing, proper janitorial services, there is no need to pre-clean before you disinfect. Just understand you can’t disinfect what is not clean. If cleaning is needed, we can handle it.
Do I need to purchase specialized equipment?
You don’t need to buy negative air fans or curtained walls for your facility. Don’t be oversold by profiteering companies.
What other services can you do while you are here?
When responding to an active case, we recommend focusing on disinfection services only. However, we’re happy to discuss other services such as carpet cleaning, textile cleaning and other specialty care services once the immediate situation has been resolved. There is a lot to be said for creating peace of mind for your employees and making sure the facility is clean as possible.
You can’t avoid the unavoidable, but you can be ready.
