Look Out for False COVID-19 Cleaning Claims
December 15, 2020
It’s hard to believe it, but yes, there are loads of businesses out there that will make false claims regarding their ability to combat viruses like COVID-19. These people will pose as commercial cleaning professionals with top of the line cleaning solutions so that they can make a quick buck. Many business owners are desperate right now to keep their doors open, and these scam artists have seen this cry for help as an opportunity to strike. We want to make you aware of this because there are teams you can trust, but finding them isn’t as simple as one phone conversation. Here are some of Image One’s tips for avoiding those phony brands.
Do Your Research
If you’ve ever conducted a Google search for a business in your area, one of the first things you’ll see on your results is a list of businesses that fit the criteria of your search. You’ll find a section where customers or businesses have left a review of the service for each brand. Think of this as the new-age word of mouth! If there is a collection of reviews with unfavorable feedback, you might want to avoid that business unless you’ve heard otherwise. If the company has no reviews at all, that might also be a fair warning sign — they might be new to the commercial cleaning industry and might not have the expertise you’re searching for.
Ask About Their Solutions and Techniques
Any commercial cleaning company worth your attention should have an understanding of the solutions and equipment they use. At Image One, we make sure that our franchisees not only have access to those tools, but they know enough about them to give sound advice to their clients with full transparency. If you have already talked to commercial cleaning professionals from another company and they’ve given you their list of disinfectants, continue to do your research. There is always a chance that the CDC or EPA does not approve the solutions they use, and you can cross-reference what they tell you with this list here.
Find Commercial Cleaning Professionals You Trust
The most important thing to remember is that COVID-19 will not be just gone tomorrow. This virus looks like it could have an impact for years to come, so it’s better to find a long-term partner than someone who is there to treat your space once and leave you to deal with the mess in a month. At Image One, we have built lasting relationships within our industry with all types of property managers and owners.
A lot is riding on these upcoming months, and now that winter is upon us, finding a trusted team of commercial cleaning professionals is vital. Our guarantee to you is that when you hire Image One, you’re choosing a team that will regularly keep you updated with our progress, fairly assess the cost of your treatments, and keep you updated with any new procedures that come to our attention. It’s a time where we can all help each other, and Image One is here to give you the disinfection solutions you deserve.
