The Restaurant Industry – Coming Back With a Clean Slate

The restaurant industry has taken a big hit during this crazy time. Restaurants are where we connect with friends and family, celebrate milestones, and take a break from the two-year-old that will only eat buttered noodles. We want to do whatever we can to help them out.

The Western team in the field has been buying from local restaurants and donating that food to the heroes on the front line. The ones working from home have been ordering takeout, buying gift cards, and encouraging coworkers to do the same. But there is another way our company can help.

While You’re Closed: It’s a lot easier to have a disinfectant treatment done in an empty restaurant than one filled with guests. If you’re offering take-out, keeping your staff safe is paramount right now. Things are difficult enough currently without having team members out due to illness. Having Western come in and perform the Western PurClean™ treatment can help ensure the kitchen is a healthy work environment for all. We use a product that 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.

Planning to Re-open: As you look to open your doors again – because it will happen – you should be thinking of how you can ensure your customers and employees are entering a secure, healthy environment. A full disinfection treatment is the best way to do that. If you have the Western PurClean™ treatment done in coordination with your sanitation program, you will be able to display a certificate as well as a window cling letting the world know you take the health of your establishment seriously. And not only is the product we use strong, but it’s 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. Completely safe for your restaurant.

Once You’re Open: Nobody can predict if all this will happen again. We like to think it won’t and we can certainly hope, but at the end of the day, Covid-19 isn’t the only illness that can travel into your business. Keeping up with your pest control can help stave off the bacteria, germs, and viruses that pests can bring in with them, but you can’t do anything about a guest with the flu. Having a routine disinfecting service done can help you sleep at night knowing you’ve done everything you can.

You don’t want to be behind the curve on this one. It’s going to be common practice and the business that doesn’t hold themselves to these new standards will be quickly eclipsed by one that does. You’ve trusted Western Pest Services for your pest control. It’s only logical to trust us for this, too. Especially since the products used in pest control and the product we are using in our Western PurClean™ disinfectant service are regulated by the same agency. Call Western today. Let us help the best way we know how.
