COVID-19 Coronavirus – Recommendation

Our top priority is and has always been the safety and security of our customers and employees. We are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 coronavirus and follow the guidance from health experts and federal agencies, including the Center for Disease Control.  Although there remains little evidence that the coronavirus is transmitted on soft surfaces, we are continuing to take additional steps in disinfecting our workspaces, and reinforcing health habits for our staff.  We are in this together to contain the spread of the virus and take care of our communities. 

If you have not done so, please consider having your costume scheduled for our 8 step cleaning process. Our cleaning process meets or exceeds the CDC Recommendations for COVID-19-Coronavirus disinfection.  For more information go to
