Excessive Decontamination Costs Force Businesses to Create Their Own Rapid-Response Teams

National consulting firm flips the script on COVID-19 sanitation practices by certifying businesses to be self-sufficient

BiOS Consulting Group, a nationwide disaster restoration firm, announces the release of a COVID-19 Self-Sufficiency Program for businesses large and small.

Conventional cleanup practices act as a reaction to outbreaks, forcing companies to shut their doors while they scramble to find a biohazard cleanup company. According to Bloomberg Businessweek, “The rapidly spreading disease suggests some businesses will require more than one cleanup.” Remediation companies are inundated with hundreds of calls a day and experience massive PPE/chemical shortages. COVID-19 Cleanup rates range from $750 to $1,000 per hour, or anywhere from $1 to $10 per square foot. This process is per incident. Every time COVID-19 walks through the doors, the unrealistic and costly sanitation process starts all over again.

In a study provided by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, “Pandemics can [also] spread easily through commercial facilities, as large groups of people congregate in them daily. Many private businesses lack system-wide business continuity plans for catastrophic health emergencies. Plans must account for extreme health impact assumptions as well as containment.”

BiOS is revolutionizing the industry by empowering businesses to create their own certified rapid-response teams. This approach alters industry standards by providing the option to store equipment and chemicals on-site, as well as an in-depth preparedness plan. Society’s norms have been redefined, and the new social responsibilities must be shared by all. Caring doesn’t have to be costly.
