BELFOR Property Restoration is a Multifamily NW member with office locations in Eugene and Portland. As a service to the industry, they have created and gathered several resources to help inform rental housing providers on proactive strategies during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Check out their virtual Town Hall video, BELFOR’s team of experts address the most pressing topics concerning cleaning areas that are or may be contaminated by COVID-19, using very practical, accessible and down-to-earth terms. Topics covered include:
- How long the virus remains viable on surfaces.
- Ensuring cleaning was effective and the facility is safe for personnel.
- Treatment processes and HVAC considerations.
- Is there a danger of disinfectant to electronics?
- Is there a need to clean long-empty buildings?
- How soon after cleaning can the building be re-occupied?
Another BELFOR short video outlines some of the steps companies can take to keep their buildings and workers safe, whether there is a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19, or to simply take proactive steps to clean buildings while they are vacant to ensure your work environment is safe before workers return from stay-at-home measures.
