  • Notify the landlord or property management team if in a leased facility.
    • Upon request, OFPM can assist in providing this contact information.
  • Contact their custodial services provider to see if they are trained and capable of providing these services in compliance with CDC guidelines and local authorities.
  • In the case of known positive exposures, contract with professional cleaning services which have the specialized training, equipment and products to properly clean the impacted areas.
    • Upon request, OFPM can provide additional information related to vendors which perform these specialized services.
  • Be prepared to clearly define areas of concern prior to the walk through with contracted custodial services and/or professional cleaning team.
