Recently, we had the opportunity to speak with a large restoration company in Australia (40 offices). In the middle of our conversation, COVID-19 came up, “Are you getting much COVID cleanup work?” we asked.

“Almost none,” the Australians answered. “As of this week, there have been no newly reported COVID cases at all in our region.” Industry spokesperson Barb Jackson CR, had a phone consultation with a company in the northwestern part of the U.S. and she asked what they were doing about COVID-19.

They explained that like many other contents companies, their focus is now directed toward traditional types of restoration — floods, fire, mold, etc., rather than pandemic-related cleaning and disinfecting.

As the world moves on, the contents valet move with it.
