The beautiful, peaceful pets in your aquarium can be a source of comfort, solace, and serenity inside your home, and that may be exactly what you need when life is so challenging outside. As we continue the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, we want you to know that Seatech Aquariums is still here for you and for your pets.
In a letter recently sent to our customers, Seatech Aquariums and Seatech H2O Owner Jimmie Hernandez discussed enhanced safety precautions he is taking to keep customers, himself, and his family safe.
In addition to wearing a face mask, gloves, and foot coverings during home visits, Jimmie has implemented social distancing measures in an effort to keep everyone safe.
“These are some trying times,” the letter states “I want to be upfront with you about my plan to keep you and your family/coworkers safe. I also know you want to keep your fish/corals happy and aquarium clean.
“I am healthy and want to keep it that way, so that my service to you isn’t interrupted.
“So, to ensure everyone’s safety, I’m going to ask that no one be in the same room/area while I’m cleaning your tank. For most of you (almost all of you), this already occurs. No one is home and/or no one is around me at your place of business. So, in that regard there will be no changes.
“I will just alert you when I’m there. And if I have to, I can come before or after hours to make it easier.”
Jimmie will make an effort to be in and out of the home as quickly as possible. He also will call or text customers when he’s on his way, and they can inform him when it’s safe to come in. To accommodate schedules, Jimmie can work on Saturdays and Sundays if possible.
“If it’s a place of business, I’ll make sure the area is clear before entering,” he adds.
“I think just being proactive and being safe will benefit us all and our families in the long run. I hope this doesn’t last long because I like talking to you. It makes my day. However, let’s just err on the side of caution for the time being.
“Here’s what I’m doing to stay healthy. I’m using hand sanitizer and/or washing my hands before and after every cleaning. I wipe down my equipment and inside my truck after every cleaning with (sanitizing) wipes. I also spray my moving blankets with a fabric disinfectant between each cleaning. I don’t think you can be too safe,” he writes.
“We are all in this together. Let’s all do our part to keep each other safe and healthy. Let’s enjoy this wonderful hobby for many years to come. We will get through this, but let’s do it proactively, smart and together.
“Remember, aquariums are very calming. Take some time, sit back and enjoy your wet pets.”
