The Restaurant Industry – Re-opening With Confidence

During this difficult time, restaurants have really taken it on the chin. They are so important to our lives. They’re where we blow out candles, get engaged, and possibly get the teenager to talk to us. We all want to help them as much as we can.

We have seen the Waltham field team getting food from local places and dropping it off to the medical heroes that are keeping us safe right now. Anyone working remotely has been purchasing gift cards for later use and going for curbside takeout. Those are just a few small ways we can help, but in the business world, there is one large way we can help, too.

If You’re Still Closed: Having a disinfection service done in a restaurant full of patrons is much harder than having it done now – when you probably only have a limited staff on site. But don’t forget about those staff members. Keeping them safe from bacteria, germs, and viruses is the most important thing you can do right now. Having Waltham Pest Services come in and do the Waltham® UltiClean™ disinfectant service can help make sure your food prep and cooking areas are as safe as possible because the product we use is included on the EPA’s “List N” of products that meet their criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2, the causal agent of Covid-19.

Looking to Open Up Again: Your doors will open again. We are confident about that. Knowing that, consider giving your customers and employees some peace of mind that they can enter your establishment with confidence. Not only will your business be disinfected, but with Waltham® UltiClean™, you will get a window cling to post for people to see as they walk by and a certificate to proudly display to anyone that walks in. Let everyone know you take their health and safety seriously. And you don’t need to worry about the fact that you have a kitchen and food prep areas. The product we use is tough while still being rated “no rinse required on food contact surfaces,” category D2, by NSF International; meaning it is approved for use in commercial or residential kitchens without the need to wash/rinse the area with water after it’s applied.

After You Have Opened: Could all this happen again? Nobody can know for sure. We can certainly wish it won’t, but really, the coronavirus isn’t the only virus there ever was or will be. Pests can bring in plenty of bacteria, germs, and viruses and having a proper pest control plan in place will help with that. But what can you do about a patron with the flu? Routine disinfecting is the only way to know you have done everything you possibly can to ward off germs.

We think this should have been routine practice all along, but it will surely become it now. Any business that doesn’t take it seriously will be quickly wiped off the map by the business down the road that does. Since you already trust Waltham Pest Services to keep pests (and the germs and bacteria they can bring with them) out of your restaurant, trusting to uphold these new standards of disinfecting is a logical next step. The products we use in our pest control are regulated by the same agency that keeps an eye on the product we are using in our Waltham® UltiClean™ disinfectant service.
