A trained technician will assess your home or facility and prepare a plan for the cleaning and disinfecting service. Commercial structures will require more planning based on availability of the building or respective areas of the building. Out of hours treatments may be needed.
Our technicians will comply with all OSHA requirements, will be prepared with all Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), will properly dispose of all used materials and disinfect all tools and equipment at the end of every job. This is for both precautionary and deep cleaning mitigation projects.
Our technicians will analyze each project before commencing, speak with the building owner/manager and determine all high touch points first, and take necessary reporting photographs. The technician will review the service authorization and agreement with you, and after review will prepare and start the cleaning process.
At all times, the technician will be as least intrusive as possible. All technicians are compassionate about their services and YOUR property.
Preparing for Our Pre-Emptive Services
Here are some tips to prepare for our service as schedule:
- Clear all horizontal surfaces and make each area accessible for the fogging/misting services. For commercial properties, clear desks and restaurant equipment. Make the area to be cleaned/fogged as clear as possible.
- Ensure all porous materials, foods etc. are stored in sealed containers and removed from horizontal surfaces and floors.
- Be prepared to exit your home or building, for a period of 30 minutes – 2 hours while the fogging solution is drying, depending on product offering chosen.
Post Cleaning – Behavioral Changes
Our clients must not immediately wipe down surfaces sprayed for at least thirty minutes after treatment. Clients with sensitivity to allergies should consider longer periods if necessary to be out of the home or building to prevent any reaction to the solutions used.
Our clients must also understand the necessity to enact procedures to prevent re-contamination once the cleaning has taken place.
During past viral outbreaks, the behavior component on infection control was mostly voluntary. People were advised to stay at home if they were sick, educated to cover their cough and sneezing and encouraged to wash their hands regularly. Today, the Centers for Disease and Prevention has supplemented these voluntary approaches with cancellation of activities, closures of schools, colleges, businesses, travel restrictions, and more. Participation from everyone is required to assist with the containment effort to slow the spread of the virus.
Clients must understand that cleaning services from any company, irrespective of the level of cleaning, does not take away the requirements of the same responsible practices within your home, building or organization. Behavioral changes to match what the latest CDC announcements must be maintained. For organizations and public buildings, ensuring enough CDC notices for both employees and customers about distancing from each other are all still required post-cleaning. Our clients must understand that once cleaning is complete, an area can be contaminated again at any time from visitors, pets, airborne contaminants, and more.
Our cleaning is also conducted to accessible areas and hard surfaces. If these surfaces are not accessible, or owners’ belongings are not removed, these will affect the effectiveness of our service. Proper preparation is always recommended by our scheduling staff.
All clients should properly prepare for the cleaning service, ensuring all horizontal surfaces are clean, floors are clean, carpets are vacuumed, and clothes and belongings are put away to enable proper fogging/misting and cleaning to be conducted. Moreover, clients need to make sure they maintain their behavioral changes to minimize the effect of viral spread after cleaning.
