There has been a lot of scare with the Novel Coronavirus-19. According to WHO (World Health Organization), influenza saw an estimated 5 million cases in 2019 with approximately 650 thousand related deaths (13 %). Currently, the Covid-19 (3/13/2020) has seen 145,003 cases and 5,411 deaths (3.7%). Hand washing is the #1 recommended prevention.
We continue to closely monitor the potential impact of Coronavirus (COVID19) on the communities that we serve. Our trained cleaning technicians will continue to clean and disinfect the community facilities that we service, following CDC recommendations.
Cleaning refers to the removal of dirt and impurities from surfaces. But cleaning alone does not kill germs and viruses.
Disinfecting works by using chemicals to kill germs and viruses on surfaces. Most disinfectants do not clean dirty surfaces, so they must be cleaned first. By killing germs and viruses remaining on a surface after cleaning greatly reduces the risk of spreading infection.
This is why we provide a combination of both cleaning and disinfecting as a part of our cleaning services available.
As with the flu epidemic, we are already cleaning more frequently, common areas and touchpoints (doorknobs, tabletops, countertops, etc.). Typically we recommend a combination of cleaning and disinfecting when cleaning a business.
In addition, we are increasing our cleaning and disinfecting efforts to include the less frequently used areas in addition to common areas. Our trained staff are using products that meet the criteria of the EPA specifically for use against the coronavirus.
Upon request we can use electrostatic sprayers to disinfect your facilities. Our sprayers easily spread the disinfectant from ceiling to floor with only a short wait time before anyone is allowed back into the room. This will ensure a safe, affordable, and highly effective approach to cleaning. We also use these regularly in the educational facilities we serve.
As we said earlier, our staff is committed to keeping your business coronavirus free. Our team has also committed to staying home if they are sick to protect you, our other clients, and their co-workers. We need your help as well to keep you and our staff safe. If there are symptoms of illness for any persons in your business please give us a call so that we can follow certain protocols.
A clean and disinfected business is a healthy business. Now more than ever, it’s important to be using a professionally trained cleaning service that will NOT cross-contaminate!
We will do everything that we can to ensure we meet or exceed your expectations for a healthy business. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to improve, enhance, expand, or increase our services to better meet your needs.
We will continue to follow the guidelines and expertise of national and local health officials to help protect our community from all communicable diseases. We also want to communicate to the community the importance of frequent handwashing, covering a cough or sneeze, not touching one’s eyes, nose and mouth, and staying home when ill.
