Europe sees Second Wave of COVID-19 as citizens return to work and school after summer break.

A Second Wave of COVID-19 in Europe hits as people return to work and school after their summer break. The last wave of COVID-19 that hit Europe resulted in a US spike 2 to 4 weeks later. Are we in for a repeat? We need to be vigilant in keeping COVID-19 cases down. High touch areas in businesses and schools need to follow daily cleaning procedures as well as deep cleaning procedures. According to Dr. Zhang PhD, Technical Director of BHC Inc., “Applying disinfectant on heavily soiled surfaces without pre-cleaning them is a waste of time. Cleaning is the only effective way to remove pathogens attached to or embedded on surface soil. Therefore disinfecting after cleaning is the only way to ensure that the surface is fully decontaminated.”

Dura Wax Products can assist in keeping areas clean from the Flu, COVID-19 and other viruses and germs during this Fall and Winter Season.

COVID 19 - Reopening of Businesses and Institutions

COVID 19 and Reopening of Businesses and Institutions

As we enter into Phase 3 of COVID-19 for reopening businesses and institutions, it is important that businesses follow guidelines from the CDC. Some states such as CA, AZ, TX and FL have reported a spike in COVID Cases since reopening. Georgia the first state to reopen, has seen a steady increase of 756 cases per day (Source Business Insider). California has seen it’s daily cases jump to 3,000 per day according to the CDC. Business owners, institutions, schools and churches that reopen, even with practicing social distancing, require customers to wear masks but they also need to keep their facilities clean. Staying on top of surface disinfecting is a critical aspect to stopping the spread of Coronavirus.

CDC Phase 3 Disinfecting Plan Requirements:
Disinfecting solutions should be at every public interaction area and employee work area. Every hour the areas to be disinfected, including restrooms, cashier stations, POS stations, credit card readers, doorknobs, handrails, public areas, employee areas, company vehicles, offices, workstations, phones, keyboards, phones, staplers, and other work equipment.

3 Dura Wax products that kill COVID-19 and other viruses and pathogens:
- Husky 814 Q/T Tuberculocidal Spray Disinfectant

Our Story

It was 1935. The height of the depression and Elmer “Jack” Wentzel found himself in a predicament. He had jobs to do. Something others at the time did not have. But Jack had no materials. He had floors to finish and no floor wax. Because of the depression, the big manufacturers cut back production.

Being the resourceful guy he was, Jack got himself some blocks of wax, melted it down, added an emulsifier and made his own floor wax. And a tough floor wax it turned out to be. Word got around about Jack’s floor wax and soon he was selling more floor wax than he was using himself. And The Dura Wax Company was born.

Since that time, Dura Wax has grown to include our own line of cleaners, st*****rs and selection of professional janitorial supplies and equipment.

We manufacture a full line of professional floor care products and cleaners such as:

• Floor finish for VCT, tile, wood and concrete.

• Floor St*****rs for hard and soft material floors.

• Floor Sealers for hard surfaces.

• Concrete Sealers, cleaners and finishes.

• Salt and Scum removers.

• Carpet Cleaners and Spot Removers.

And with our selection of professional janitorial supplies, equipment and cleaning supplies we help make your job easier.
