CHICAGO, May 8, 2020 (Newswire.com) - ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons is providing COVID-19 cleaning and disinfection services to businesses in the Chicagoland area. Franchise owners Sam Simon and Nasutsa Mabwa were recently featured on NBC Chicago to talk about their COVID-19 disinfection process.
As COVID-19 continues to spread and cause fatalities while the economy plans to re-open, businesses will need to ensure protection from potential contamination. The COVID-19 virus is considered a biohazard -- and according to experts, it spreads quickly via surfaces, which it can live on for multiple days. Complicating things is the fact that many people with COVID-19 are asymptomatic, which makes the virus harder to trace and disinfect. To effectively rid businesses of viral material, professional cleaning and disinfection services are often necessary.
“This crisis is not going to disappear anytime soon,” says Nasutsa Mabwa, President of ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons. “That’s why routine and consistent cleaning and disinfection is essential. For many businesses, professional cleaning and disinfection will be the difference between a contained infection and a full-blown outbreak.”
