Amid growing public uncertainty surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Rolyn Companies, Inc. is bringing its world-class environmental services capabilities to the healthcare, hospitality and lodging, commercial, multi-family(residential) and education industries. Rolyn has launched its North American (US and Canada) Rapid Response Team to help businesses decontaminate facilities and mitigate conditions which could present ongoing health risks related to viruses, bacteria, and other environmental hazards. Rolyn decontamination specialists are highly trained to identify, assess, and effectively reduce health hazards that could help the spread of CAIs (community acquired infections), as well as HAIs (healthcare acquired infections).
Rolyn’s decontamination services provide facilities a wide range of capabilities and options, from rapid response decontamination to a general assessment of environmental conditions conducive to the spread of pathogens. Rolyn uses recognized best practices which are based on the most current scientific knowledge, methods, and materials, affording businesses an industry leading effective, thorough, and rapid protocol to decontaminate their buildings and return them to service with minimal service interruption.
In the past 2 weeks, leading hotels, schools, airlines, management companies and government entities have called on Rolyn to decontaminate (both proactively and reactively) in excess of 5,000,000 square feet of buildings. Based on the project, Rolyn has the capabilities to perform a biomass reduction and/or decontamination in each case, using technology which hold emergent virus claims approved by the EPA. All work is completed in accordance with EPA labels and applicable Federal, State, and local regulations and applicable Safety Data Sheets. After establishing a controlled access work area and ensuring that all workers entering the work area are aware of hazards, are properly trained, utilize proper PPE, and follow proper decontamination practices, Rolyn’s highly trained teams have the capabilities to conduct a biomass reduction in addition to conducting a detailed cleaning of high touch surfaces.
“At a time like this, public health is at the top of everyone’s mind. We all share a role in helping to reduce risks to prevent or slow the spread of this virus,” says Rolyn’s Chief Operating Officer, Trent Darden. “If you have a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 event in your building or at your facility, we have a collective responsibility to protect others. Not only our employees, but also the general public.”
Rolyn’s decontamination team has extensive experience and adheres to industry standards as outlined by IICRC, OSHA, NIOSH, RIA, AIHA, and IICRC Guidelines (i.e. S500 and S520).
