Prepare Your Business for The Second Wave
Rising cases of COVID-19 were predicted to occur, with the winter season quickly approaching. The most recent report indicated that Virginia has topped over 200,000 COVID-19 cases to date. Roanoke and New River Valleys faced the highest increase with a combined 65 new cases just in the second weekend of November. It is difficult to mistake the concerning trend occurring as we enter the busiest time of year for many small businesses.
Unlike the summer months, the cold temperature will force most businesses to experience an increase in indoor traffic. Restrictions are being implemented across the state by Governor Ralph Northam, focusing on limiting the scale of social gatherings. Indoor gatherings have been limited to 25 while the public has been set to a limit of 250. Restaurants and bars will also stop serving alcohol by 10 pm and have to close by midnight. However, these new restrictions do not apply to private offices, gyms, businesses, churches, and schools. That is why now more than ever, it is imperative that the proper sanitization and cleaning is conducted to prevent the spread of COVID-19 inside of your institution.

As cases continue to increase across Virginia, it is best to avoid the liability of an individual catching COVID-19 in your institution.

No matter what space you have, NEXT LEVEL BUILDING SOLUTIONS has you covered. Whether you own an office, warehouse, medical facility, or gym, routine COVID-19 spraying will help you maintain and fight back the spread of COVID-19 within your space.

Please don’t leave it to chance. With only the best CDC approved and EPA registered disinfectants, the professionals at NEXT LEVEL BUILDING SOLUTIONS will get the job done right.
The professional cleaners at NEXT LEVEL BUILDING SOLUTIONS wear certified personal protective equipment (PPE) and full-face respirator masks at all times to prevent any droplets from spreading.

Whether you, as a decision-maker, decide to outsource or not, something must be done to ensure any visitors to your organization or business’s space is appropriately sanitized to prevent the spread of COVID-19. It is best to have a plan in place and a system to ensure that a consistent cleaning schedule is followed effectively. Best practices are shared on the CDC website and should be followed and studied.
Suggestions include the following. Wear skin protection and consider eye protection for potential splash hazards. Cleaning solutions can be harmful and irritating to the skin and eyes. Ensure that gloves are worn to protect your hands and always wear a face mask and eyewear when possible. When cleaning, ensure there is adequate ventilation. Sometimes, strong cleaning solutions have potent fumes that can irritate the lungs if not ventilated correctly. Keep a door open or window when possible to ensure some airflow. Always use only the recommended amount provided on the label. Over pouring can damage flooring, walls, or fixtures that may be sensitive. Use the proper amount each time. Also, make sure to use water at room temperature for dilution unless stated otherwise by the label. Avoid mixing chemical products because the reactions can be unpredictable and harmful. Always store and use chemicals out of reach of children and pets.
It is certainly possible to handle your own space if allocated the proper time and cleaning supplies. However, as many leaders know, time is a scarce resource. Cleaning and disinfecting your space to keep visitors space should not be a rushed activity. Reflect on whether the proper amount of time can be adequately allocated daily and weekly by yourself or staff to clean your facilities. There is an opportunity cost to doing the activities yourself or with your team. Also, there is no guarantee that every detail will be covered.
Outsourcing is a practical approach to ensuring you are doing everything in your power to maximize your own time while also ensuring that your facilities are properly disinfected to keep your visitors safe. When it comes to curbing COVID-19 spread in your business, leave it to the professionals.

As Virginia nears 200,000 COVID-19 cases with a rise in the Roanoke area as of November 2020, decision leaders must not leave the activity of cleaning to chance. A proper plan and implementation are needed, no matter the facility. With the holiday season rapidly approaching, businesses are open and will be receiving an influx of seasonal traffic. It is not too late to start taking action and ensuring that each square footage of space in your facility is properly disinfected. Follow the proper guidelines and pay attention to detail.
Nearing the end of the year, COVID-19 continues to be a problem for our near foreseeable future. The recent news of effective vaccines is welcoming and will hopefully be made accessible to the public. Until then, each resident of Virginia must do their part in curbing the spread of COVID-19.
