/PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- ServiceMaster DSI, the nation's largest owner and operator of ServiceMaster Franchises has increased efforts to assist with the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak. With new cases of coronavirus infection being reported daily and the impact being felt across the globe, ServiceMaster DSI has committed their own resources to further the education, communication and treatment of facilities possibly impacted by or preparing for COVID-19.
Concentrating on the treatment and decontamination of facilities and buildings, the experts at ServiceMaster DSI have identified several disinfection procedures and systems to help provide the most effective results available. Researching and testing various decontamination methods is something ServiceMaster DSI does continuously, however special precautions need to be taken in extreme situations such as the COVID-19 outbreak.
Complicating the task of proper decontamination and disinfection is the fact that information about COVID-19 is scarce and changes regularly. ServiceMaster DSI has committed resources to monitor changes and developments from respected sources such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as communicate regularly with clients, field personnel and other ServiceMaster network partners. This constant research, education and communication provide ServiceMaster DSI with valuable information not only about the virus itself, but the reaction of people and businesses related to news reports and potential challenges with decontamination.
"Through our ServiceMaster DSI and SRM brands, we have clients and relationships across the country as well as internationally. It is our duty to stay ahead of any aspect that may negatively impact our clients' businesses including the Coronavirus outbreak. We have committed our own resources including personnel, equipment and funds for aspects such as educational opportunities and client coordination to make sure we are best prepared to help any way we can." Jim Boccher
President and CEO ServiceMaster DSI / SRM
In addition, ServiceMaster DSI has brought industry experts such as industrial hygienists and disease control professionals into their offices to collaborate on various topics surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak and possible decontamination methods. With so many businesses and facilities under the threat of being impacted by the Coronavirus these developments and proactive measures may prove critical in the coming days and weeks.
