In the midst of these wild times we find ourselves in, I want to reach out to communicate what I have been doing, and what we will be doing moving forward.
First and foremost, The Glass Man is here for you.
I intend to continue to offer, schedule, and provide services as long as it is safe to do so—for you, for our clients, and for the broader community.
Many local businesses are asking themselves what they can do to help, in light of the quick spread of the coronavirus. As you know, we are in the cleaning business, which means that we specialize in thoroughly washing and sanitizing parts of your house that often go unattended.
I am in communication with all of our clients.
I have asked them to let us know if they or someone they have been in contact with is sick. We will not send team members to their homes or offices if they have any symptoms or have been in contact with someone who is sick. Whenever we schedule a job, I make sure that no one at the property was sick or has been in contact with someone who was sick.
During the next few weeks, it is especially important that you keep your distance from others if you feel sick or have been in contact with someone who was.
What is the Coronavirus?
I strongly encourage you to rely on scientific and medical statements; the spread of misinformation is more alarming than the virus itself.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention , COVID-19, originally known as 2019-nCoV, is a strain of a large family of coronaviruses which can be transmitted from animals to humans. It was first identified as the cause of a respiratory illness outbreak in Wuhan, China in late 2019. On March 11, 2020 the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic. It can be spread by touching contaminated surfaces (like windows and light fixtures.)
COVID-19 symptoms are similar to the cold or flu and may take up to 14 days to appear after exposure to the virus. People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention. Be vigilant as severe cases may lead to pneumonia, kidney failure or death. Those at higher risk of getting very sick from COVID-19 include older adults and people who have serious chronic medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and lung disease.
I encourage you to check out the World Health Organization regarding preventative measures. Constant sanitization is especially important and helps reduce the likelihood of exposure. If it has been a while since we stopped by to clean your windows, screens, fixtures, and exterior surfaces, now is an excellent time for us to take care of it.
We've got this.
We have always engaged in clean and safe practices, including frequently cleaning and sanitizing our tools. We will continue to do so even more frequently, while also taking every precautionary measure recommended to us. If you have any questions or would like to set up an appointment, please reach out. We're here to help!
