As the entire nation and countries around the world struggle to reopen their economies and get people back to work, there is still much concern about the spread of the novel coronavirus and the COVID-19 disease it causes. Cleaning workplaces in the midst of a pandemic has taken on a whole new meaning. Protect the wellbeing of your employees and your customers with a new service from Office Keepers: Sanitizing Surfaces and Touchpoints. This service can eliminate the virus to give both workers and clients confidence you’re doing everything you can to safeguard their health.
Professional Cleaning of Your Company’s Facilities with Disinfectant
Stopping the transmission of the COVID-19 disease and the virus that causes it requires everyone to play their part. Individuals can care for themselves and others by continuing to practice social distancing as much as possible, wearing face masks when outside the home, and engaging in more frequent hand washing. But what happens when people start going back to work? And what happens as more businesses open up for customers?
Whether it’s a company’s business offices, a retail store with foot traffic, or a foodservice operation, now is the time to take extra care in cleaning your facilities with help of professional experts. Think of all different points in your business where an infected person could leave traces of infectious material that contains the virus. There are a lot of them, right? Cleaning your facilities during a pandemic requires expert use of disinfectant for sanitizing surfaces and touchpoints to protect the health and safety of employees and customers. Office Keepers has the staff and the expertise to do this for your company as frequently as you need it to feel secure as things open back up.
Use of an Approved Disinfectant to Sanitize Your Workplace
Across America from New York to California, people are feeling a two-fold anxiety. People are anxious to get back to work and reopen the economy, but they are also anxious about the continued spread of the virus and the disease it causes. What Office Keepers of Indianapolis offers is a service for sanitizing surfaces and touchpoints in any kind of facility, whether it’s a restaurant, retail store, business office, or industrial workplace. Our expert cleaning technicians will use an approved disinfectant from either the Office of Indiana State Chemist Registered COVID-19 Disinfectants or what the Centers for Disease Control and prevention (CDC) recommends, which is the United States Environmental Protection Agency EPA List N: Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2. As you can imagine, the supply chain for all these disinfectants has been under a lot of strain, which is why can’t guarantee which specific disinfectant we will use because it depends of which ones are available to us, but we do guarantee it will be an officially approved disinfectant (and we’re happy to supply you with the registry number of the product we will use at your facility)! We will also follow the CDC protocol, Cleaning and Disinfection for Community Facilities, which includes businesses, offices, daycares, educational institutions and education facilities (schools, colleges, universities), and community centers.
There are two different methods Office Keepers can use at your facility, and we’ll come assess your workplace to help determine which approach would be the most effective, or a combination of both if needed.
- Touchpoint Sanitization: We can manually spray and/or wipe down all common “touchpoints” we identify with your help, which means we sanitize all the things people touch in the workplace, especially focusing on the points that multiple people will touch in common areas such as every light switch, computer item (keyboard and mouse), door handle, chair, lounge or break room equipment (microwave, refrigerator handle, coffee machine, table), counter, phone, floor, and any other high-touch areas identified in your location.
- Disinfectant Misting/Fogging: This is ideal for broad coverage of larger areas. We use the Minuteman Mist-It to quickly spray an even coating of disinfectant throughout a room or facility. This piece of equipment includes a100-PSI pump equipped with an accumulator to provide a pulse free uniform spray ensuring a consistent and effective application.
These services are both quick and surprisingly affordable given the peace of mind they grant to workers and customers that you care enough to disinfect and sanitize your facilities.
Be Careful When Selecting Cleaning Services Providers
Please note that Office Keepers is aware how some cleaning companies are making ridiculous claims about their disinfecting services. If any cleaning company says a single application of their service will provide protection for days, weeks, or even months, that’s just not true. That is simply not how approved disinfectant products work. Any sanitizing surfaces and touchpoints service can only ensure disinfection only at that point in time. If we sanitize your workplace after everyone has left for the day, then you know it’s been fully disinfected for when people arrive the next day. But each new day of business brings the possibility that the virus will be carried into your facility that day.
No Employees Should Come to Work Sick
Most everyone has gone to work at some point in their lives even though they were sick. But this is simply not something you can do in the midst of a disease pandemic caused by a virus for which there is no vaccine or effective treatment. Health providers have been clear: At even the slightest sign of illness, the affected employee must be sent home to protect everyone else’s wellbeing. Any single symptom of a respiratory illness or infection is enough: Fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, and recent loss of sense of smell and/or taste.
Even more troubling in this novel coronavirus outbreak is the fact that some people carry the virus without ever showing any signs of illness. This asymptomatic aspect of the pandemic adds an even higher level of urgency for all kinds of workplaces and businesses to ensure the sanitizing of surfaces and touchpoints.
Workplace Security in a Pandemic: What Your Company Can and Must Do
No one wants to be the “disease vector” that unwittingly passes on the novel coronavirus to anyone, and especially not someone who is more vulnerable to COVID-19 complications and death if they contract the disease from the virus. Yes, there will be a cost to your business for protecting the health and safety of each employee, your customers, and visitors, but think about the much greater cost if we don’t get this right.
A safer workplace where employees are protected from emerging pathogens, viruses, bacteria, and other microorganisms is possible with the right professional cleaning service. And make no mistakes, your workers are paying attention, and they will appreciate you taking this public health crisis seriously on their behalf. Now is not the time to compromise! Office Keepers has the products, equipment, and expert cleaning technicians to provide the solution you need for sanitizing surfaces and touchpoints to stop this pandemic in its tracks!
