Even during a pandemic, "the show must go on." The United States is slowly opening the economy again, but COVID-19 is still a threat. Now it's up to business owners to keep customers safe. The economy is important for our society, but another wave of the virus would be a major setback. Here's a quick look at how businesses can help ensure customer safety during COVID-19.

A recent survey by an independent consulting firm found that more than 50% of employees throughout the United States are concerned that they may be exposed to COVID-19 when they return to work. One way to alleviate concerns? Ensure employees return to a clean and disinfected office.
As states across the country end their COVID-19 shelter-in-place and stay-at-home orders, offices are reopening. Companies must be proactive in preparing to have employees work in the office after months of working at home.
At long last, stay-at-home restrictions in place due to COVID-19 are starting to lift. Slowly but surely, people are making their way back to their jobs and offices.
At San Diego’s Pegasus Building Services this week, employees and their families lined up to get tested for the coronavirus in what might become routine in the business world.
The COVID-19 pandemic has left many office buildings empty for an extended period of time. You may be tempted to think this means the space is clean because no one is using it, but that may not be the case - especially if the office wasn’t thoroughly sanitized before its doors were closed. To ensure everyone can return to work safely once distance restrictions are lifted, you will need to employ rigorous office cleaning services prior to reopening.
Chemical fogging, particularly H2O2 or hydrogen peroxide fogging, is an efficient and effective way to sanitize a controlled or indoor environment. The hydrogen peroxide itself is a powerful decontaminate, and when released in an aerosol form, it is capable of achieving a 6-log kill. This results in 99.9999% elimination of pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, fungus, and other microbes in an environment.
Fogging is the process of covering an object or area with condensed vapor for the purposes of decontamination. Hydrogen peroxide fogging, or H2O2 fogging, is a decontamination method where aerosolized hydrogen peroxide is released into an enclosed area. Hydrogen peroxide fogging is one of the most efficient and effective ways to eliminate viruses, bacteria, fungus, and other microbes in an environment.
Setting up and planning a cleanroom starts with the cleanroom design phase. During this phase, you should consider how the cleanroom will be used, permitted particle concentration, its location, the manufacturing process requirements, and cost. It will be necessary for the cleanroom designers to have in-depth conversations with the end-users to ensure that all needs are captured in this phase.
Hydrogen Peroxide Fogging is a method of decontamination that releases aerosolized hydrogen peroxide to enclosed areas like cleanrooms. The H2O2 aerosol is an antimicrobial sterilant, meaning it gets rid of things like bacteria, fungus, and viruses in areas where it is used.
Because of its ability to work on a molecular level, hydrogen peroxide fogging is a much more efficient and effective way of eliminating microbes than manual cleaning. Aerosolized hydrogen peroxide gets into every nook and cranny of an indoor environment, ensuring all areas are decontaminated.
