March 20 Update: We are OPEN for business

As of today Governor Newsom announced a statewide shutdown. We want to reassure you that we are in fact open, since we are considered an essential industry being that we provide laundry services. If you’re also considered an essential business please rest assured that we will be provided you with hygienic products, and will continue to kill all viruses and germs throughout our wash process. We understand the importance of hygiene and avoiding cross contamination is at the forefront of all of our minds, and want to provide you assurance that we will continue to service you with all your work uniform garment, floor mat and restroom supplies (including toilet paper and soap) during these times.

COVID-19 Message from Our President

March 17, 2020

Re:  COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) Response

To Our Valued Customers:

COVID-19 Response

As you are aware, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused us all to take a close look at how we manage our daily affairs. As this major outbreak continues to develop, we think it is prudent to take some proactive measures to ensure a safe environment for all of our team members and customers.

Personal Hygiene

We have made it a point to follow the recommended government guidelines. We have stocked up to supply additional disinfectant wipes throughout our facility and vehicles. We have held team meetings discussing the importance of personal hygiene, thorough hand washing with hot water and soap for at least twenty (20) seconds, containing coughing and sneezing, and maintaining social distancing.

Body Temperature Checks

All team members who work in our facility and service our customers are checked at the beginning of each day for fever using a non-invasive infrared temperature probe.  Any Budget Uniform employee with symptoms of cough, respiratory illness, and/or fever will be sent home.

Cleaning

We are increasing the cleaning frequency of all common and high traffic areas, including sanitization of door handles, restroom fixtures, handrails, non-automatic light switches, keyboards, handhelds, and equipment controls.

Laundering

The industrial laundry process is effective in removing/degrading pathogens due to the combination of proper water temperatures, detergency, and/or bleaching, and terminal finishing.

Supply Chain

We have multiple manufacturing supply partners throughout North America as well ample current inventories of merchandise throughout our facility. Further, we have a contingency agreement with a sister company to process merchandise in the unlikely event that our plant is required to close.

While none of us can fully stop community spread of Covid-19, we will continue to make every effort to minimize risk to our team members and customers. At this time, we see no business interruption on our end and will continue to provide service to our customers.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

Sincerely,

Steve Shrager
President/CEO
