    • Over the weekend they cleaned three of the stairwells, and they completed their work in the north stairwell by the close of business today.

    • NOTE: When Zimmer has completed their duct cleaning or their remediation cleaning of an area, an independent environmental consultant must inspect the spaces and test a variety of samples to verify that the cleaning has been thorough and that the spaces are suitable for occupancy.  The requirement for some re-cleaning is common.
