The number one fear for many business owners is that their employees and customers are at-risk of contracting the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in their facility. As a leader, one of the best decisions you can make to protect your community, and your brand, is to invest in professional disinfection services. Wil-Kil Pest Control is proud to offer Disinfectix, a site disinfection service to minimize invisible threats that endanger you, your employees, and your customers.
We’ve interviewed our Disinfectix experts to give you more answers before you decide to partner with Wil-Kil for your disinfection needs. Here’s what Shane McCoy BCE, Director of Quality and Technical Training, and Alex Blahnik ACE, Field Training Manager, had to say:
Why should businesses choose Wil-Kil, a pest control company, to disinfect their facility?
“Businesses want to ensure that their employees come to work in a PROFESSIONALLY disinfected facility. Wil-Kil’s Disinfectix service is performed by technicians specially trained to apply EPA registered disinfectants in a manner that is effective against human coronavirus.
Allowing a person who is poorly trained with EPA registered products (this could be a cleaning company or an employee of said business) can result in harm done to that person, the product applied in a manner harmful to others or simply an ineffective service.
Businesses deserve to have their facilities disinfected by a professional.”
Is there a difference between sanitation and disinfection?
“Disinfecting is the next step up from sanitizing, which merely lowers the number of germs on surfaces to a safe level. Disinfecting actually kills germs to reduce the risk of infection.”
What types of businesses can benefit from Disinfectix?
“All employees and customers deserve the satisfaction of knowing that the space they are entering has been disinfected. A business may consider having additional Disinfectix services performed if the people who frequent their facility present a higher infection risk. Volume of employees and customers entering the facility and the level exposure are among the factors a business may use to consider the frequency of treatment.”
What are the specific areas of a facility that Wil-Kil technicians treat?
“Wil-Kil’s Disinfectix service will address all available areas of a facility, and especially focus on high-touch areas. If you have any specific concerns, please give us a call and we would be happy to talk through them with you.”
My business has remained open. Is it still possible to have my facility disinfected?
“Wil-Kil’s Disinfectix service is perfectly suited for those businesses that have bravely remained open during the crisis as we will perform our services around your business hours.”
How do you protect yourself when performing Disinfectix?
“We wear personal protective equipment specific to each product we use. It would not be unusual for us to don a respirator, safety goggles, rubber gloves, and a protective suit.”
If I currently have pest control services through Wil-Kil, will my regular technician be the person to perform the disinfection service?
“Employees specially trained in disinfecting human coronavirus will perform your Disinfectix service. Though your technician is qualified to perform this treatment, only if she or he has undergone additional training may they be on the team to disinfect your facility.”
