HOW WE'RE KEEPING YOU SAFE
How we’re keeping you safe:
Staggered Shifts - We are limiting the amount of staff allowed in our shop at a time. This means staggered shifts and minimal contact between staff.
Limits on Pick-ups - Pick ups will be limited to one client per one hour time slot.
Limits on Gear Preps - Preps in our shop are limited to one per day, allowing our staff to thoroughly clean the prep room before and after each client.
Gaps Between Returns and Rentals - There is varying information about how long COVID-19 can survive on hard surfaces. However, we are allowing as much time as possible between the return of a product and the time it goes back out into the field.
Disinfecting - Equipment - All components of the gear are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected during every prep and upon each return. The type of disinfectant varies depending upon the type of gear. We are using either a soap & water solution or a 60 - 99% isopropyl alcohol mix. For more sensitive surfaces we are using quaternary ammonium products such as Clorax disinfecting wipes. If an item is able to be machine washed, such as rags, this is our preferred route for disinfecting. All shop surfaces - Surfaces that are regularly cleaned and disinfected includes doorknobs, desktops, counters, iPads, prep bays, and carts. For these types of surfaces we are cleaning with a diluted bleach solution as often as possible. This is the preferred method for when you’d need to enter our shop, but if you have a bleach sensitivity please let us know in advance so we can use alternative methods. Shop surfaces are being cleaned before AND after each client visit, as well as regularly throughout the day.
Personal Protective Gear - Upon entry, clients must be wearing a mask while in the shop. Gloves and masks are worn by our staff anytime clients are in the shop, while gear is being transported, and for curbside pick up.
Washing Hands - Staff are required to thoroughly wash their hands before and after each prep, tech check, and pick up.
Avoiding close contact - If in-person communication is required, staff will maintain at least 6 feet of distance between themselves and clients. We ask you to kindly also follow this guideline.
