Commercial facilities that remain in operation across the U.S. continue to be exposed to coronavirus (COVID-19), and many organizations are seeking professional, credentialed decontamination contractors to service their space to provide some peace of mind for their employees and customers.
As the outbreak started to spread just last month, one of our clients — a large, national retailer — was in need of cleaning at three stores across three different states. These stores, which were between 10,000 and 30,000 square feet each, had been exposed to the virus, so our client requested immediate decontamination services.
Contractor Connection was ready to respond.
Within an hour of receiving the request, the Contractor Connection team had assigned contractors to each store. All services were completed during overnight hours that same day, and the stores reopened the very next morning without business interruption.
Another one of our clients — a large, home health care service provider — also recently requested decontamination services in nine of its locations across seven states. For some of these facilities, the services were needed in response to known exposures, but for others, the services were employed for preventative reasons. In all cases, Contractor Connection provided rapid response to each location, and all were treated and able to reopen within a day.

said Lance Malcolm, U.S. president of Crawford’s Contractor Connection. “The focus must be on helping companies limit business interruptions and provide peace of mind for employees and customers who use them.”
