How Restoration 1 of Northern Minnesota is Tackling COVID 19

Within our line of work, the safety of our clients and our team has always been a top priority at Restoration 1. Now, more than ever, we need to continue to focus on staying safe and healthy. Here’s how we are continuing and increasing various safety precautions to protect our teams and customers:

How We Keep Our Northern Minnesota Team Safe

1. Staying Informed and Up to Date

As a company, we are regularly monitoring updates from local state and public health websites and announcements. By staying in regular communication with local representatives and decision makers, we can then ensure best practices through our own business, as well as to our clients.

2. Maintaining a Healthy Work Environment 

We are embracing positive change within our workplace. The emotional and physical well-being of our employees is paramount. Here is how we are doing our part to ensure a healthy work environment:

Restoration 1 employees who can work remotely have and will continue to work from home until further notice.

Our emergency staff members are being monitored for their health and also the health of their families to ensure we are all being cautious to protect others during this time.

Unwell staff members or those who have unwell family members are told to stay at home until they are cleared to return to work.

3. Hygiene Measures

Naturally, all of our employees are adopting the best hygiene practices wherever possible at work and at home:

  • Washing our hands regularly for at least 20 seconds with soap and water
  • Using industrial grade hand sanitizer if soap and water is not readily available
  • Coughing and sneezing safely
  • Avoiding touching our mouth, nose and face
  • Keeping a safe distance (6 feet is recommended) from other people 
  • Frequently cleaning high-traffic surfaces and areas within our office

How We Keep Our Clients Safe in Northern Minnesota

Safety is and will always be at the core of our business. While Restoration 1 already takes precautionary measures whenever possible, we have put in place the following additional precautionary measures: 

While the initial call takes place, our customer service representatives will check if the owner of the property is unwell or any of its inhabitants or employees are unwell.

If this is the case, we will request that a healthy individual meets with us upon inspection.

Alternative greetings to hand shakes

  • Our technicians are always dressed in fully encapsulated personal protective equipment with full-face respirator masks.
  • As always, we properly handle hazardous and infectious biohazard waste, such as infected materials. The sanitizing products we use are both CDC and IICRC certified.
  • Our team is certified by the IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning & Restoration Certification) and strictly adheres to the most up-to-date procedures and products when it comes to sanitation or disease cleanup.

Restoration 1 Virus Disinfection & Sanitation Process:

Here’s how our highly trained Restoration 1 team will complete the Virus Disinfection & Sanitation process:

Industrial-Strength Disinfectants: Restoration 1 uses approved CDC and EPA industrial-strength disinfectants to decontaminate and disinfect surfaces, objects, carpets, floors, walls, doors, and windows.

Hard Surfaces Sanitized: The first step in the process includes sanitation being applied to accessible hard surfaces. This is then left to dwell for about 20 minutes, while it deep cleans and disinfects.

Special Focus on High Traffic Areas: We especially focus on heavily sanitizing additional high touch areas like desks, computers, door and desk handles, and telephone handsets.

UBL Fogger: Finally, our team of experts will do a final sweep through and use the disinfection process with a UBL fogger to get a lot of those areas that we can’t physically hand-wipe.
