Commercial Business FAQ's

My Business Is Open, Why Should I Have A Deep Cleaning?

  • Sanitizing and disinfecting now and on an ongoing basis will help keep your clients / employees safe and ease safety concerns that they may have. Even observing social distancing, we know from the CDC that the Coronavirus can last for days on surfaces. We know that many employees have expressed they are not comfortable reporting to work given the risk to become ill. Therefore, regularly disinfecting and sanitizing can go a long way to prevent the spread of the virus and keeping individuals healthy and working.

If we choose to clean, sanitize, and disinfect our facility that is still open and operating, what are your recommendations:

  • Schedule the cleaning for a time when no one will be present. This is for the safety of everyone and to ensure the building has had disinfectant applied when the work is complete. If this is not possible (as in the case of facilities that are open 24 hours a day), we can work with you for a solution. Set up recurring cleaning and disinfectant. CAUTION: A sanitized facility will become re-infected as soon a sick individual enters the premises. Therefore, disinfecting on an ongoing basis is recommended to provide the best health and safety outcomes. Let everyone be aware of the steps you are taking to protect them. This can help put minds at ease and keep people engaged in essential activities.

My business is not open right now, why should I clean the facility?

  • Cleaning now is recommended if your building is currently unoccupied due to the COVID crisis. If you plan to re-open your facility at some point in the future, you will be ready to operate knowing that you’ve taken the right steps in keeping the community safer by following CDC recommended safety measures.

Reasons why it makes sense to clean, sanitize, or apply disinfectant now:

  • You’ll be ready. Cleaning now means that your building will be ready as soon as you open. You do not want to have to scramble at the last minute to find someone to disinfect the building when the call comes that it’s time to re-open, or worse still delay the re-opening because the building isn’t ready.
  • You’ll be ready. When offices, government buildings, schools, and more all start to re-open around the same time, disinfecting companies are expected to be inundated with cleaning and disinfecting work. People who would like to have this work done quickly will discover that they’re unable to find anyone to do it.
  • You’ll be ready. The best time to clean, sanitize, or disinfect any building is when there’s no one in it. Crews are able to access and disinfect the entire building without working around anyone. This is safer solution for everyone and ensures the building is sterile when the work is complete.
