With the easing of restrictions following the implementation of a general community quarantine (GCQ) in the National Capital Region, West Zone concessionaire Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) is resuming its septic tank cleaning or desludging services for residential and semi-business customers starting July 1, 2020.
Maynilad has adopted new and more stringent protocols in the conduct of desludging services to ensure the safety of its customers who will avail of the septic tank cleaning. Prior to field deployment, Maynilad required all of its desludging personnel and vacuum truck unit operators to pass antibody screening tests conducted by Delos Santos Medical Center of the MPIC Hospital Group. They will also be required to wear personal protective equipment (PPE), practice physical distancing, and undertake extra disinfection procedures to protect against the spread of COVID-19.
“We have made our already-stringent desludging safety protocols even stricter, to assure our customers that we are taking all necessary steps to protect them from possible COVID-19 infection as we deliver our desludging services in their homes,” said Maynilad COO Randy T.
