At the Cleveland Furniture Bank, we are taking every precaution to protect our employees and valued customers from the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Under state law, we are required to spray all cloth and leather furniture we receive and most items of clothing. This protocol has been in place since the inception of the Cleveland Furniture Bank. This week we were notified by our supplier that the sanitation spray (Steri-Fab) we have used for years also neutralizes the COVID-19 virus. We are taking steps to increase the level of spraying in order to reduce the chances of the virus being present in our facility. We are also wiping down door knobs and spraying our rest rooms with this product.
Our wood furniture is also being wiped down at least once a day with a disinfectant.
We will continue to monitor our employees and volunteers to insure that they are healthy when coming to work and ask them not to come in if they or any of their family members are experiencing any symptoms.
We appreciate your understanding during this unusual time and ask for your continued support of our mission to help those in need in Northeast Ohio.
