Cleaning and sterilizing (We are BIG on CLEAN!)
Alcohol-based hand disinfectant will be provided upon entering the office via our touchless dispenser.
Frames will be double sanitized prior to being displayed in our eyeglass showroom. Once with a CDC-approved disinfectant then placed in our Ultraviolet (UV-C) light cabinet for ultimate sanitation.
We have installed a new state-of-the-art Air Purifier in our office’s ductwork, killing airborne pathogens in our office in addition to reducing allergens.
