In an effort to reopen society responsibly, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has released guidelines, protocols, and resources to help property owners through unusual times. Results have differed from state to state; however, what’s most important is that we’re adapting appropriately to keep people healthy, safe, and comfortable as the next stages unfold. Image One’s commercial residual cleaning services are a fantastic way to take action, but let’s also look at what protocol the CDC recommends.
Assess Your Situation
One of the most important steps in the entire reopening process is evaluating your own situation and moving forward appropriately. A day in the life of one business might not look like yours and there are plenty of variables to consider before deciding on the best next steps. How often do your employees interact with one another or the public? Is your property located in or near a major city? How many people are in your building at one time?
These are just a few of the critical questions to consider when determining a course of action. A retail location or B2C with 20+ employees, for instance, will need to take precautions that are very different than that of a smaller, corporate-style office.
Whatever your situation may be, it’s vital that you implement a plan to clean and disinfect at an appropriate frequency. For some, such as owners in the restaurant industry, that could mean daily commercial cleaning services or even hourly disinfection. Keeping to your plan and adapting to change will both be essential as we move forward.
Keep Track of Hot Spots
Not every surface of your property needs to be disinfected regularly. However, the areas of your building that people interact with the most should be. Here’s a quick list of frequently touched surfaces that the CDC recognizes as germ hotspots, requiring routine disinfection to ward off the dangers of COVID-19:
- Light switches
- Faucets and sinks
- Gas pump handles
- Touch screens
Disinfect the Right Way
Executing a cleaning game plan is one thing, but if you aren’t doing it with the right tools, you’re missing the point. Disinfecting with the right solutions and technology can provide incredible results, and Image One’s commercial disinfection services adhere to all CDC and EPA guidelines. Our electrostatic spraying equipment eliminates 99.999% of germs for nearly a month’s time. If you can’t fit our commercial residual cleaning services into your budget, we recommend purchasing an EPA-approved disinfectant, to take matters into your own hands. The benefit of hiring Image One is that we can assume that responsibility with our professional and effective approach.
Of course, there is much we can do collectively to take the steps necessary to reopen society safely. Make sure to visit the CDC website to learn more about that.
