How our industry plays essential roles during COVID-19

4/7/2020 (Permalink)


To Local Officials:

Tens of thousands of dedicated professionals in surface cleaning / disaster restoration and indoor air quality industries provide essential services that are necessary to maintaining the safety, sanitation, and essential operation of residences, healthcare and other facilities.

In spite of this request, the administration has held off on clearly defining the classifications, leaving states to individually determine and declare essential versus non-essential business.

Our members and certified professionals, have been on the receiving end of what are surely unintended consequences because of some area classifications of essential versus non-essential. These consequences may have a detrimental effect on the health and well-being of occupants within a particular building environment. In addition, these essential services being delayed will most assuredly cause further economic damages in cases where impacted buildings are not treated in a timely manner.

Surface cleaning /disaster restoration contractors and indoor air quality professionals have been overlooked. The argument should be made that language such as “…and other service providers who provide services that are necessary to maintaining the safety, sanitation, and essential operation…” as was included in the California state designation, directly grants essential status to these professionals.

Whether it be through cleaning, disinfection and application of antimicrobial products to help control the spread of infection, to restoring facilities impacted by flood, fire and other catastrophic events and assessing the indoor environment to ensure protection of building occupants, these professional services are essential to the safety, sanitation and essential operation of residences, healthcare and other facilities.

Surface cleaning / disaster restoration contractors” and “indoor air quality professionals” to the list of essential businesses. Each of these industries provide essential services related to the health, safety and welfare of building occupants in residences and facilities.
