With the unfortunate circumstances Long Beach Island, the country, and the world is in right now regarding Covid-19, people are looking for companies to make their homes and workplaces feel clean, cared for, and comfortable. Most people will immediately go straight to the internet to look for disinfecting services nearby, but how can you know the company whose website you’re looking at is a real company and not a scam? After all, anyone can make a website nowadays, and false companies promising cleaning, disinfecting, or sanitizing services are cropping up more and more. It’s important to note whether the information on the website is legitimate, or seems too good to be true. Here are three tips to follow when reading a website to double-check if it represents a known and well-received company:
Is Their Website Well-Written?
Nobody is perfect, and one or two misspelled words can potentially be found on even the most prestigious company’s website. But if the entire website is riddled with odd sentence structure, misspelled vocabulary, and unfinished ideas, it likely wasn’t made and checked thoroughly by a team of professionals who are looking to advertise their skill and expertise.
How Recently Was The Website Created?
Oftentimes, somewhere on the web page (usually the bottom left or right of the screen), a copyright date will show how long the website has been available for interaction. If a website claiming to offer disinfecting services has just recently been posted and you can’t find other information about the cleaning company with minimal research, be aware that this may be a scam. The website may instead be providing opportunities for people who are not certified, licensed, or even trained in disinfection to benefit from uncertainty during this worldwide pandemic.
Does The Website Supply A Physical Address?
When a phony website is being made, they may be able to get by on their ability to eloquently and convincingly write, and they may even be able to fake how long the website has been running. But any company issuing out disinfecting services is going to need a physical building for their company headquarters. Disinfecting services more often than not require large equipment, company vehicles, and PPE, or Personal Protective Equipment. Thus, their building should be able to show up on Google Maps or any satellite showing street views of residential and street locations. If the website does not offer any sort of contact information, specifically a physical address you can see for yourself in person or on the internet, the company very well may not be a legitimate cleaning company.
While these are all tips that can come in handy when trying to find a disinfecting service, they’re not necessarily a guaranteed standard. The safest thing you can do when choosing who to contact is picking a well-established, local disinfecting company with clear, concise services, obvious contact information, and strong website presence.
