Covid-19 Health Response and Procedures
At Space Shop Self Storage, we know that our customers continue to need storage to navigate life events, declutter, store business inventory, and more. We also know that it’s important for our employees and customers to be safe during the Covid-19 pandemic. As a result, we take our responsibility seriously in providing necessary services and in doing our part to keep everyone as safe as possible.
When you come to Space Shop, you can be assured that we’re doing what we can to provide a convenient and healthy storage experience. Here are a few of the policies that we’re committing to for the duration of the pandemic.
Contact-Free Rental Options
Renting a storage unit online has never been easier. Simply navigate to your desired Space Shop storage facility, and select the unit that you want. You can either rent your unit and move in as soon as today or reserve your unit payment and move in later. You’ll be emailed all relevant information once you complete the rental process and can start moving in on your own—no human contact necessary.
Face Mask Requirements
For your safety, face coverings must be worn by all employees during all customer interactions. We strongly encourage our customers to wear face masks or coverings while in our property.
Social Distancing and Plexiglass Shielding
We are committed to keeping proper six-foot social distancing in all employee or customer interaction. When that’s not possible or feasible, we combine other preventive measures for maximum protection. One such measure is plexiglass barriers, which are installed in our rental offices to prevent particle transmission in the event of sneezes or coughs.
Employee Handwashing and Sanitation Measures
All employees are required to ensure they are keeping frequent and adequate hand washing, as well as ensuring that they are keeping cleaning supplies stocked. In addition, the following sanitation measures are also being implemented:
- Water coolers and drinking fountains will be closed
- Any area with two restrooms will have one marked for staff use and the other for customer use
- Employees will use disposable gloves where safe to prevent disease transmission
Additional Cleaning Practices
Space Shop employees will also implement the following additional cleaning procedures:
- Initial workspace cleaning
- Cleaning after every customer
- Restroom cleaning at start and end of shift
- Repeated cleaning of heavy touchpoints such as doors, keypads, elevator buttons, and moving carts
Potential Exposure and Sickness Protocol
Space Shop has distributed a response plan for potential exposure to all our employees. Any employee that has had close contact to an individual with a confirmed or suspected Covid-19 infection must follow the CDC guidelines for Potential Exposure for Critical Infrastructure Employees. These measures include recommended isolation, daily temperature checks, and more.
