Not sure where to start or how to ramp up your current cleaning services? Read on for our tips on keeping your buildings disinfected for the safety of your teams and customers.
How is COVID-19 Disinfecting Different?
While this virus is different than other infections, it’s clear that the virus is spread through person-to-person contact (within six feet) by any expelled respiratory droplets. As the virus is studied and understood over time, experts have found that it can live in the air for up to three hours. And, even more alarming, it can survive on surfaces for 24-72 hours, depending on the material.
With most effected persons not feeling the symptoms of the virus for 2-14 days after exposure, the virus spreads quickly to new people.
It’s vital to take a serious and thorough approach to your building’s cleaning services to ensure the safety of all who work or visit your building.
How Can We Prevent the Introduction & Spread of COVID-19?
If your building is still operating with even a partial staff, it’s essential to make sure that all people on site are aware of the WHO’s (World Health Organization) five steps to help stop the virus.
- Wash your hands often
- Cough into your elbow
- Don’t touch your face
- Keep a safe distance from others
- Stay home when and if you can
In your building, it’s important to emphasize the importance of these five steps and do your part in keeping all public spaces sanitized.
It’s also essential to make sure that all people in your building have adequate access to hand-washing stations, disinfectants for hands and surfaces after use, and know what signs of infection to look for in themselves, their family members, and their colleagues.
What Should Your Cleaning Services Do?
During this time, your cleaning services should be providing complete disinfecting and decontamination of all of your buildings. The technicians at All American Environmental in New Jersey are trained on the hazards surrounding cleaning products used to sanitize workspaces.
All cleaning services must comply with OSHA standards, and technicians should know about the proper disposal of materials used for cleaning. All technicians should wear a full Tyvek suit when disinfecting your workspace; including, rubber boots and gloves, face masks and shields, and they should use full, medical-grade disinfectant.
