For over 15 years, the wellbeing of our clients and employees has been a top priority for Precision Painting & Decorating. This lasting value continues to guide us as we face the tough challenge of responding to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Since both building maintenance and painting are considered part of essential businesses and operations, for the time being we will operate in a limited capacity and on a case by case basis. Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Activity has also verified landscape services as essential operations. They have further validated the exemption from statewide Stay at Home order by arguing that outdoor landscape projects generally allow required social distancing that poses little risk of transmission.

Global pandemic poses difficulties to various industries and affects businesses of all sizes, and PPD will continue to support the local community in any way we can. We are working tirelessly to serve clients with renovation plans for the immediate future while making overall service improvements to respond to this unprecedented situation.

What PPD Does to Keep All of the Employees and Clients Safe

As we all work together toward preventing COVID-19 from spreading, our entire team is being extremely careful and mindful of other people’s wellbeing during the outbreak. PPD employees are putting in place a number of workplace health and safety preventive measures, including:

  • washing and sanitizing hands and high-touch surfaces frequently;
  • cleaning and sanitizing all equipment regularly;
  • using facemasks, gloves, and shoe covers;
  • respecting other people’s space and keeping a distance of at least 6 feet;
  • using online meetings platforms to avoid face to face interactions;
  • adapting to managing all projects online including remote estimates.

In addition, all employees are required to use personal protective equipment (PPE) in order to reduce the exposure to hazards including coronavirus.

The Importance of Commercial Building Disinfection After COVID-19

Nothing lasts forever and neither will the coronavirus outbreak. Once things go back to normal, we will return to our offices and schools. All these public spaces should be disinfected before we get there in order to keep the facilities safe.

Deep cleaning and sanitization with industrial-strength disinfectants are an absolute must. Using the right kind of paint can help with both the corona disinfection of buildings and the prevention of any future viruses or bacteria. This way, not only are workplace health and safety prioritized, but all employees and clients can have peace of mind too.

How Can Paint Help Against Coronavirus & Other Bacteria and Viruses?

Microbial paint is a great solution for protection against viruses, bacteria, and other airborne hazards because it penetrates deeper than other disinfectants.

This paint technology is anti-viral, anti-algal, and antifungal, and most importantly – safe for humans. Microbial paint solution is effective against 99.9% of all pathogens, making it a great ally in our common fight against coronavirus and keeping the workplace safe.

Benefits of Microbial Paint

Latex-based microbial paint is used just like any other interior paint, the only difference being that it effectively fights against pathogens on surfaces within two hours of exposure.

Initially purposed for healthcare and other commercial facilities, microbial paint is now used for private residences too. It is a great solution for bathrooms and kitchens and is suitable for application on walls, doors, and ceilings. The paint withstood exposure and scrubbing tests and has proven to maintain its effectiveness for up to four years.

Finally, we understand that adapting your renovation plans to the COVID-19 outbreak is not an easy task as the situation remains unpredictable. Our team at PPD would like to assist you any way we can.
