Earlier this week we published our company’s official response to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 crisis, and assured customers that if anything changed, we would let everyone know.
Well, not unexpectedly, a few things have changed! Read on to find out how recent developments have affected our business.
Still Providing Services at Unoccupied Properties
As a result of Buncombe County’s shelter-in-place policy that began on Wednesday, as well as North Carolina’s stay-at-home order (announced yesterday), we are temporarily changing our business practices to comply with the law and to help keep WNC safe and healthy.
Rug Cleaning Services
Until further notice, Five Step will only be able to perform cleaning services in unoccupied properties. To clarify, we can still clean carpets, upholstery, wood floors, and tile in homes, businesses, and vacation properties that are currently vacant or unoccupied.
In addition, we are still taking rugs for cleaning in our Asheville facility, and we are still offering pick-up and delivery service for rugs.
Health and Safety Precautions
As we mentioned in our last update, our crew is taking extra precautions to prevent spread of the coronavirus, such as wearing gloves and face masks, washing hands frequently, closely monitoring our health, and practicing social distancing.
We know this is a tough time for many people in our community. We hope that everyone stays safe and healthy!
