BMM PLANS TO BE GLIMMER OF HOPE DURING THESE TOUGH TIMES: COVID-19 RESPONSE

UPDATE: Executive Order 20-20 Identifies BMM As An Essential Business

Governor Tim Walz issued Executive Order 20-20 Wednesday afternoon which orders Minnesotans to “stay at home or in their place of residence.” This order will be in effect starting Friday, March 27, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. through Friday, April 10, 2020, at 5:00 p.m. BMM is a company that has been identified as an essential business within Executive Order 20-20. You will find this on page 3, paragraph 5, subparagraph D. It states that supplies and services needed to maintain the “operation of homes, residences, and businesses” will be exempted from Executive Order 20-20.

Between emails and news articles, there is a plethora of information surrounding this pandemic and the common theme seems to be “fear.” We would like to take this time to be the exception to that rule by informing you how BMM plans to be a beacon of hope during these unprecedented times. Below you will read about BMM’s plan to help you protect your assets; procedures that will better protect your tenants, staff, and our technicians; how BMM can help with your action plan; and how BMM can help when the dust settles.

Protecting Your Assets With BMM

As a property owner or manager, you still have an obligation to maintain the well-being and safety of your facilities. However, how can you do that on top of the day-to-day management, answering thousands of questions from both tenants and employees, and taking care of yourself? That being said, BMM has taken the initiative to get their technicians identified as “essential” workers during these unprecedented times. So, whether it is routine building check-ups (i.e. trash pick-up, boiler checks, other equipment checks, chiller start-ups, etc.), or 24/7 standby emergency coverage your facility maintenance can continue to be covered in BMM’s hands. Even in a “shelter in place” directive, BMM will continue to be available to cover your maintenance needs, in a safe and controlled manner, by carefully following the procedures listed below.   

BMM’s Procedures To Keep Everyone Safe

BMM has seriously and diligently planned the procedures below to keep everyone safe. BMM’s number one concern is to keep your tenants, staff, and our technicians healthy and limit exposure to Covid-19. BMM plans to ensure safety of all individuals by following directives from the CDC (i.e. wash hands, social distancing, covering coughs and sneezes, staying home when sick, etc.). However, BMM plans to take it a few steps further with the following procedures being added to what the CDC is recommending:

In the event that a BMM technician needs to enter an occupied unit and the tenant DOES NOT have symptoms of Covid-19:

  • BMM’s technician will proceed to enter with a fresh pair of gloves which will be disposed of immediately after leaving the unit.
  • Face protection will be worn by BMM’s technician the entire time they are in the unit.
  • The tenant will be asked to stay in a different room during the duration of the service call.
  • BMM’s technician will wash his/her hands immediately before and after the service call.

In the event that a BMM technician needs to enter an occupied unit and the tenant DOES have symptoms of Covid-19

  • BMM’s technician will proceed to enter with the following fresh items and dispose of the items, in a trash bag, immediately after leaving the unit: Tyvek suit, respirator, gloves, goggles.
  • The tenant will be asked to stay in a different room during the duration of the service call.
  • BMM’s technician will wash his/her hands immediately before and after the service call.

Again, these precautions are in addition to the most current directive from the CDC. If you have any questions, comments or concerns regarding these procedures, please call our office at (763) 541-4886.

Involve BMM In Your Action Plan

To get through these tough times, BMM thinks it will take a community effort in sharing strategies and collaborating with one another. For this reason, BMM would like to be a part of any action plan meetings you may be having. We feel that the earlier and more involved we can be, the better we can serve you. BMM has already been collaborating with other companies using video conferencing software and can bring that knowledge to the table when we meet with you. These consultations will be completely free of charge, so please pick up the phone and reach out to our office at (763) 541-4886 or book a time to speak with BMM’s team of facility maintenance experts.

BMM Is Here When The Dust Settles

Not only is it important to have a plan during all this, but also after we reach the end of it. With resources only being utilized on emergency or essential type tasks; there will be a surplus of work to do when the dust settles. So, to get things back to a normal routine as soon as possible, call BMM at (763) 541-4886 or contact us.
