The COVID-19 pandemic had dramatically changed our lives in a year with no exception, even for the cleaning industry. We can no longer do the cleaning ourselves or merely hire any cleaning aides, especially when a coronavirus infected person is involved. Such circumstances called for the emergence of coronavirus cleaning services offering expert cleaning and disinfection of your facility. The value that these coronavirus cleaning professionals can offer, which I have divided into four are:
- Professionals use different techniques to allow them to reach through every corner of your office that regular cleaning can otherwise miss.
- Professionals are well-knowledgeable and can use multiple EPA-approved disinfectants effective against the SARS-Cov-19 (COVID-19 virus).
- Professionals are encapsulated in Personal Protective Equipment and trained to minimize occupational risks, unlike an ordinary staff.
- Professionals utilize modern technologies and equipment to combat SARS-Cov-19 (COVID-19 virus) and other microorganisms certified by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
While the methods of cleaning vary from one company to another, here is a brief overview of common coronavirus sanitizing methods:
- Fogging is essentially disinfecting using a fine spray for hard-to-reach and interior spaces and air ducts.
- Wiping surfaces with a cloth wet with EPA-approved, industrial-grade disinfectants.
- Spraying involves completely coating a surface with sanitizing solution.
- High-touch, germ capture removal system uses radiation and UV light to kill microorganisms.
- 3-Step Clean System consisting of a botanical disinfectant combined with an antimicrobial surface protectant providing surface protection for a maximum of 90 days.
Now that you are familiar with how the cleaning and disinfecting process will take place, it is now time to find the cleaning services company to take on the job, and these eight steps can help you find one:
- Search online for cleaning services with good ratings and read a bit about them on their website. You can also ask relatives and colleagues for recommendations.
- After you have narrowed down at least three candidates, invite each of them for an interview. During the interview, you can ask about their areas of expertise, the service they offer, the methods, technologies, and chemicals they use.
- Once you got your men, check if their company is insured, bonded, and registered with the state’s Division of Corporations office.
- Do a background check with the companies they worked with previously.
- Discuss the services you need and how often you need them before asking for quotations.
- Choose the best company that suits your needs and budget. Have a written agreement with them with all the actions you are expecting from the cleaning services stated.
- After finalizing the agreement, inform your employees of the cleaning schedule.
- Prepare your office before the cleaning team arrives by securing all confidential files, arranging power chords, and managing slippery and dark-lit areas.
More than ever, an employer should prioritize their employees’ health during these dire times, as without the workers, the company will not function properly. And with cleaning services becoming more expensive, complicated, and dangerous, it is vital to have the right cleaning partner to protect your employees from COVID-19 and other work-related risks.
