FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Thursday, April 28, 2020
Denver Area Rugs Inc DBA Be Green Services (Lakewood, CO) an all natural, organic carpet cleaning company would like to thank healthcare workers, emergency responders, and service providers for putting their lives on the line to help keep our communities safe during COVID-19.
We’re excited to announce ALL FRONTLINE WORKERS and others are invited to enjoy a FREE vehicle disinfection at our Lakewood, CO office parking lot. This project is kicking off with a week long event starting on Thursday, April 30, 2020, 9AM-5PM. Our team of professional cleaners has been equipped with all the necessary PPE equipment as recommended by the CDC and is prepared to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
We will be providing a vehicle disinfection station and safety waiting zone (following the CDC guidelines) where one of our professional technicians will quickly disinfect and ventilate your vehicle. There will be no need for reservations and priority will be given to frontline workers. Realizing there is a high demand for disinfection services in office spaces and commercial buildings, we may make these services available in the near future by appointment only. For the time being, our efforts will be dedicated to offering this vehicle drive up service at a “Name Your Price” (No Minimum) rate. Proceeds from contributions will support Be Green’s mission to help flatten the curve.
Our community has supported us for the last 10 years, now it’s time for us to support you! Please let your friends and family know!
From our family to yours,
Be Green Services
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
We are a driven, motivated organization with the intention of doing whatever we can to provide well-being for our clients and community. Our business has suffered the same consequences as many others during this time of pandemic. We have faced a lack of business overall and have struggled to keep our employees and contractors working with a severe decrease of sales during our normally very busy carpet cleaning season. Unfortunately, we were not one of the businesses who was lucky enough to receive an SBA (PPP) relief package as of yet. After considering every possible option, we decided the best way we could make an impact is by investing every last bit of our savings and energy into this community appreciation event. With zero expectations and maximum effort, we intend to do our part to give back to our community in the only way we know how… by providing all-natural, organic, smarter, and safer services. We only hope our efforts and risk will help those who need it most, and in return, will provide us with loyal clients who can look forward to returning to their everyday lives as soon as possible. Until then, Be Green Services will be working hard to disinfect as many vehicle interiors as possible while supplies last.
WHAT DOES “NAME YOUR PRICE MEAN?” IS THIS A FREE SERVICE?
While supplies last, Be Green will be providing vehicle disinfection services at a “Name Your Price” (no minimum) rate. Everyone is welcome to get their vehicle disinfected with no obligation to pay anything at all. At the end of your service, you can choose to contribute anything you’d like to support the mission. Even if you can’t afford to make a contribution, or if you’re already making contributions to other causes, we welcome you with open arms. We are all in this together, COME ONE COME ALL!
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE A FREE VEHICLE DISINFECTION/FUMIGATION SERVICE?
Everyone is welcome to enjoy a vehicle disinfection/fumigation service. Frontline workers will be prioritized. We simply request all attendees follow the CDC and Jefferson county guidelines for social distancing and wearing PPE. We humbly request if you have been experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, or been in contact with anybody experiencing symptoms, that you do not attempt to attend this event. Our workers and our community’s safety is our number one priority.
How long will this event last?
Be Green Services will be providing vehicle drive up services everyday for the entire week of April 28th – May 7th 2020 while supplies last.
WHAT DAYS AND TIMES WILL THE DRIVE UP STATION BE OPEN FOR BUSINESS?
Thursday April 30th – Sunday May 7th: 9am – 5pm while supplies last and weather permitting. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for lots of sunshine!
WHO IS CONSIDERED A FRONTLINE WORKER?
Frontline workers are those directly providing services where they are most needed, especially in remote and rural areas. Including:
- Healthcare workers (Doctors, Nurses, etc)
- Emergency service first responders (Police, Fire, EMT)
- Grocery & delivery service workers
- Construction & utility workers
CAN I CONTRIBUTE IN OTHER WAYS BESIDES FINANCIALLY?
Absolutely! We will be accepting donations of much needed PPE gear on-site. Any PPE gear donated will be utilized by our technicians to continue providing disinfection services. All remaining gear will be donated to local organizations in need.
IS MY CONTRIBUTION A “TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATION?”
Unfortunately, Be Green Services is not a qualified non-profit organization. However, you have our promise that any contributions made will support our mission to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Your generous contributions will be used to pay our technicians, purchase more chemicals, additional sprayers, PPE gear, and potentially expand our events to more locations and states.
WHAT IS A DISINFECTION/FUMIGATION SERVICE?
Upon arrival, one of our trained professionals will use a low volume sprayer to coat all interior surfaces of your vehicle with our disinfectant solution. Prior to fogging, you will need to exit your vehicle. There will be a social distancing area where you can wait about 5-10 minutes while your vehicle is being fumigated. After fogging, we will keep all the doors and windows closed for approximately 2 minutes to allow the solution to kill as many pathogens/viruses/spores as possible. Finally, we will open all the doors of the vehicle for maximum air circulation while the solution quickly dries, leaving behind zero smell or residue. The entire process can last about 15 minutes.
WILL THIS DISINFECTION/FUMIGATION SERVICE “CLEAN” MY VEHICLE?
CDC Guidance: Disinfecting refers to using chemicals, for example, EPA-registered disinfectants, to kill germs on surfaces. This disinfection/fumigation service will not necessarily “clean” dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of spreading infection. Be Green Services will only be providing disinfection fumigation services at this event. We highly recommend cleaning/removing any existing dirt and soils from your vehicle prior to coming to this event and on a frequent basis thereafter.
WHAT CAN I DO TO PREPARE MY VEHICLE FOR DISINFECTION?
Dust and clutter decrease disinfection efficacy, for the best results we recommend your vehicle’s interior be clean prior to arrival.
DO I NEED TO VENTILATE MY CAR AFTER THE DISINFECTION/FUMIGATION SERVICE?
Although we intend to allow plenty of ventilation time for all the solution to dry completely, we recommend you leave your windows rolled down or “cracked” while driving immediately after the service. There is a slight risk of eye irritation if all the solution has not finished air drying, but with a minimal amount of fresh air circulation, most customers should not experience any discomfort. In the slight chance you do experience any discomfort we recommend you pull over, safely exit the vehicle and allow a few extra minutes with your windows rolled down while any remaining solution air dries.
WILL THIS DISINFECTION/FUMIGATION SERVICE PREVENT ME FROM BECOMING INFECTED WITH COVID-19?
Unfortunately, Be Green Services cannot guarantee you will be protected from COVID-19. This service is simply a proactive measure to help prevent the spread of this awful virus. Please keep in mind your vehicle can still become exposed to the virus after this service and it should still be cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis. You are more than welcome to attend this event more than one time throughout the week, while supplies last.
CAN I SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT TO PURCHASE THIS DISINFECTION/FUMIGATION SERVICE FOR MY HOME OR BUSINESS?
At this time we are focusing 100% of our fogging capacity to this FREE week long community appreciation event. Any appointment requests made during this time will be scheduled after May 7, 2020.
