Proper business hurricane preparedness can ensure employees’ safety, minimize financial loss, and expedite recovery. Proactive behavior and advance planning can save a business owner thousands of dollars in lost revenue due to structural damage, building content damage, interruption of business operations, and employee displacement. Therefore, it’s crucial for a company to have a well-established hurricane response plan in place.
As businesses in Texas prepare to reopen, it is important to choose a qualified disinfection contractor, like ServiceMaster, to properly decontaminate and clean an office property.
SARS-CoV-2 is the virus that causes the Covid-19 disease. While studies are still being conducted to better understand the coronavirus, the virus is known to primarily spread through respiratory droplets, such as when an infected person coughs or sneezes and others breathe in the droplets.
Various surface materials can also potentially transmit the coronavirus. An infected person who touches a surface contaminates it with the virus. When another individual subsequently handles the surface and then touches his nose, mouth or eyes, he becomes infected. The coronavirus threat is pervasive.
The virus lingers on cardboard, stainless steel and plastics for varying amounts of time. On cardboard, the virus is viable for 24 hours; on plastic for 2 to 3 days; on wood for 4 days; and on stainless steel for 2 to 3 days. Commercial properties teem with these materials.
Furthermore, the coronavirus remains infectious on paper for differing spans of time; some strains are viable for only a few minutes, while other strains remain infectious for five days. The virus is also viable on glass, such as office windows and break room drinking cups, for five days.
Due to the fact that contaminated surface materials can potentially transmit the coronavirus, it is especially important that public areas, including commercial workplaces, are regularly decontaminated and cleaned. The decontamination and cleaning company facility managers choose makes a key difference.
ServiceMaster provides expert cleaning techniques and proven processes that fight the coronavirus and decrease the chances of workers becoming ill and further disrupting the flow of business. Here is what makes ServiceMaster your best choice for COVID-19 disinfection and prevention:
ServiceMaster is experienced
Coronavirus decontamination and cleaning should be handled by a company that is experienced in the mitigation of serious viruses. ServiceMaster has successfully decontaminated workplaces affected by coronaviruses, like SARS and MERS, positioning us to be top choice for coronavirus cleaning.
ServiceMaster is a reputable cleaning franchise with companies dispersed throughout the country. Local businesses turn to ServiceMaster for thorough and professional coronavirus decontamination and preventative cleaning services. With decades of experience and countless satisfied business customers, facility mangers trust ServiceMaster.
ServiceMaster is thorough
ServiceMaster technicians perform both cleaning and decontamination services. A cleaning removes visible dirt and grime from surfaces but does not kill germs. Decontamination (which is a form of sterilization and disinfection) reduces the level of contamination to one where the risk of infectious transmission is zero.
Cleaning crews clean and decontaminate both porous and nonporous surfaces. Equipment, desks, tools and supplies receive ample attention during the process. ServiceMaster technicians are thorough in their approach, addressing all high touch points in the commercial space with equal care.
Examples of high touch points that receive cleaning in a commercial facility include light switches, bathroom fixtures, phones, keyboards, touch screens, water fountains, shelving, file cabinets and countertops. The carpets, elevators and stair handrails are also fully cleaned and decontaminated.
ServiceMaster technicians are trained to perform cleaning services that go beyond the scope of routine janitorial services. We have decades of experience in cleaning biological contaminants from commercial properties and ensuring the work environment is safe for employees to inhabit.
Our skilled cleaning crews have decontaminated a range of business environments. If your commercial space is a community facility, such as a daycare, office, school or healthcare setting, that is visited by the general public, we will create a workable cleaning plan for your unique situation.
ServiceMaster follows EPA guidelines
EPA-approved disinfectants effectively disable the coronavirus, and ServiceMaster stays up to date on the best cleaning products to use as we tackle commercial spaces. Our chosen cleaning solutions and disinfectants contain active ingredients that meet the EPAs criteria to work against SARS-CoV-2.
ServiceMaster cleanup crews wear personal protective equipment (PPE) during each coronavirus cleaning and decontamination service. The PPE is essential to keep our workers and customers safe. We take several safety precautions while putting on, taking off and disposing our PPE.
ServiceMaster is flexible
As several businesses are embracing remote work environments during the coronavirus outbreak, it is an ideal time to engage in the decontamination and preventive cleaning of your commercial workspace. Without a full staff onsite, you have the opportunity to decontaminate the facility.
Essential businesses that continue to operate on a full schedule should also choose ServiceMaster for our thorough coronavirus decontamination and cleaning. We offer flexible hours to meet your needs. A cleaning and decontamination can be set up during evening hours or weekends.
A company may require an emergency cleaning if an employee suddenly displays coronavirus symptoms, such as coughing, fever and tiredness. As a local business, our cleaning crews have the ability to respond to area calls on short notice. We’ll decontaminate your space quickly so staff can return to work.
