Panicked shoppers from across the MIA have turned to RapidClean Griffith for commercial quantities of toilet paper amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
Tissues, toilet paper, serviettes and sanitisers have been flying off shelves and into overstocked homes, as businesses begin to shut their doors in an effort to stop the spread of coronavirus.
"It's been hectic to tell you the truth," operations manager Sam Marando said.
"The biggest issue we've had is in our supply chain, it's been real tough."
RapidClean currently delivers products to over 3,000 schools, nursing homes, doctors clinics, dental offices and pharmacies.
These types of healthcare workplaces are highly dependent on cleanliness, relying heavily on businesses such as RapidClean to meet their demands.
Despite an influx of consumers walking in off the street, RapidClean have continued to meet the needs of their clients by introducing purchase limits for non-commercial customers.
"We were fortunate enough that we managed to get in before the rest of the market," Mr Marando explained.
"Being a local business in our community we do what we can to support not-for-profit first, such as Post School Options and Kurrajong."
The warehouse usually boasts 2,000 cartons of toilet paper on hand, but after hearing about empty supermarket shelves, they ordered an extra 2,000 cartons.
Those 4,000 cartons sold in just four days.
"We got quite lucky in a sense," general manager Brendan Cappello said.
"One of our staff was in Sydney when the panic buying started to happen, so when she called up and asked us to send her some toilet paper, we filled our orders."
"We thought it would last us weeks or months, but we took a gamble and it flew off the shelves," Mr Marando added.
RapidClean are also one of the only suppliers in Australia that have remaining stock on Virex II J-Flex, a hospital grade disinfectant which carries claims against human coronavirus.
"Everyone has been racing to it, just last week we were looking at a bunch of virucidal chemcials, but none of them have claims against coronavirus," Mr Cappello explained.
"This one seems to be it."
RapidClean Griffith will be officially closing their doors for the foreseeable future as of 3pm on March 18.
This will not impact orders, which can still be placed at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 6964 5755.
The office closure will be done to counter COVID-19 concerns, as they supply many healthcare outlets and wish to reduce their risk of exposure.
