From Lawn Care to Sanitation During COVID-19

The effects of COVID-19 have caused a bigger disruption to normal life than most of us ever anticipated. Local businesses, community parks, recreation centers, and more have closed all over Utah in hopes of slowing the spread of the virus in the Beehive State.

Companies in all industries have also abandoned their normal production and service offerings to better serve the public, and to stay afloat themselves. Coronavirus is a threat being addressed in a timely manner, which is why your friends and neighbors at Lawn Butler have stepped up to the plate to join the battle coronavirus. We’re proud to announce that effective immediately, we’re now offering a range of sanitization services in addition to our normal landscaping and lawn care service offerings.

Protecting Customers and the General Public

Public health is always our number one priority. What’s worse to us than the mass closure of businesses and public facilities is the risk of rampant, widespread illness in Utah Valley. As most people know by now, coronavirus is spread through air droplets whenever an infected individual speaks, sneezes, or coughs. You could come in contact with these droplets by breathing them in when you pass by an affected person or by touching a contaminated surface. Counties across Utah are becoming increasingly urban, and in our hustling-bustling city surroundings, we’re constantly touching public fixtures. That’s why all high-touch surfaces, such as public railings, door handles, trash can lids, and playground equipment need to be sanitized regularly.

Lawn Butler has recognized the need for a unified approach, and we’ve accepted the challenge of disinfecting public spaces for the health and safety of our community. We’re on a mission to help the facility managers of schools, HOAs, and businesses in surrounding cities keep their outdoor amenities clean and COVID-free so that our society can return to normal as soon as possible.

In accordance with the sWHO and CDC regulations and recommendations, we can assist with the proactive daily cleaning needs of the following indoor and outdoor items:

  • Water fountains
  • Stair handrails
  • Outdoor handles
  • Playground equipment
  • Outdoor benches and tables

The CDC also recommends the ongoing sterilization of the following:

  • Elevators and escalators
  • Fitness equipment
  • Sales counters
  • Keyboards
  • Doorknobs
  • Tables and counters
  • Light switches
  • Offices

Trained and Equipped to Take on This New Challenge

Our customers know that our specialty is lawn care, but we also want you to know that our team has quickly adapted and become an expert in surface treatment as well. Rest assured that we arrive ready for action. We’ve made sure that our butlers know how to properly and respectfully sanitize high-risk areas without putting themselves at risk and how to appropriately respond and adjust to customer feedback. We regularly screen our employees, suppliers, and products in an effort to do our part in reducing everyone’s risk of coronavirus exposure.

As a prominent and reputable landscaper in Utah, we have access to all the high-power equipment we need to help keep people safe, including industrial-grade sprayers and a potent, EPA-registered hydrogen peroxide solution that quickly kills viruses like SARS-CoV-2. Our disinfecting services require minimal tools and manpower; typically, we can get a playground sanitizing job done with only a single individual with a backpack sprayer and blower (although we usually send two individuals to expedite the process).

Returning To Normal

Utah Governor Gary Herbert recently announced that the state is moving into phase two (the stabilization phase) of Utah’s coronavirus response plan as of Friday, May 1st. This means that parts of the economy will slowly reopen, and certain restrictions will be lifted. Without taking precautionary measures in response to this announcement, your facility could become a hub for infection. Businesses and public services like yours will experience a sudden influx of traffic and will need our sanitization services more than ever to prevent a resurgence of cases.


As we return to normal, turn to Lawn Butler for help purifying your public spaces — whether they be park equipment, benches, playgrounds, or drinking fountains. This simple preventative measure will help you keep your patrons safe and keep the curve on a continuous downward trend.
