As a building owner or property manager, you’ve probably had to make some hard decisions lately about COVID-19 disinfecting and how to protect your facility because of COVID-19. With so many unanswered questions about the pandemic, we are here to help. The last thing we want is for you to be left in the dark about how to disinfect your facility – not only for COVID-19 but for all viruses and possible pandemics in the future. Between salmonella, E.coli, MRSA, norovirus, influenza, and human coronavirus, it’s clear why wiping down surfaces isn’t enough anymore.

Our clients are looking for a stronger defense against COVID-19 and other viruses, along with COVID-19 disinfecting. That is why we manage professional disinfecting services for businesses just like yours. We understand many people haven’t heard of professional disinfecting services before, so before we get into why it’s so important for your facility to be cleaned routinely, let’s cover what exactly is involved in disinfecting services and how they keep you safe.

What’s The Hype About COVID-19 Disinfecting Services?

Professional disinfecting services are different than your average cleaning program. Disinfecting services address surfaces directly with powerful cleaning agents designed to remove bacteria, viruses, and other harmful elements. These services are typically performed with electrostatic sprayers. Electrostatic spraying provides uniform coverage in all types of environments; plus, it’s safe for sensitive surfaces (including equipment and electronics). The sprayer emits positively charged particles that “wrap around” surfaces in your facility (which are negatively charged). Ultimately, electrostatic spraying reaches the impossible corners, crevices, backsides, and other hard-to-reach places often missed during a general cleaning.

After using the electrostatic sprayer, additional professional COVID-19 disinfecting services will be performed. These include:

  • HEPA filter vacuums
  • Wiping down surfaces
  • Moping
  • Restock bathrooms and common areas with sanitization products

The CDC recommends that every facility have a COVID-19 disinfecting plan in place in the instance of a COVID-19 infection in your facility. Professional disinfecting services will act fast to clear COVID-19 from your building and allow your employees to safely return to work.

Ideal Building Types

Professional disinfecting services are a great solution for any number of facilities that are concerned about COVID-19 or any other sanitary concerns. These teams can be scheduled immediately after a positive test occurs in your building. They will employ their tools, such as electrostatic sprayers, and disinfect all areas affected. There are some limitations to where electrostatic sprayers can be used. While electrostatic spraying can be performed in any number of facilities, below is a list of some of the areas that benefit the most from electrostatic spraying:

  • Athletic Facilities
  • Commercial Offices
  • Daycare Centers
  • Food Service Building
  • Medical Facilities
  • Multi-Housing Common Areas

  • Senior Living

If your facility is not on this list, do not worry. Professional disinfecting services use a wide range of tools to sanitize and disinfect surfaces. They also understand the limitations of some facilities and know how best to use their tools to keep your employees and guests safe from COVID-19.

COVID-19 Disinfecting – More Than Your Internal Janitorial Team Can Handle

The additional stress and strain put on internal janitorial teams by COVID-19 has been overwhelming. It is simply not feasible to ask your janitorial team to deal with disinfecting areas of your facility affected by COVID-19 because it is dangerous and they aren’t qualified.

Teams that provide professional disinfecting services are trained in the best practices and are OSHA and CDC compliant. They know how to wear the proper PPE and use the tools and chemicals correctly. Electrostatic sprayers especially need to be used correctly in order for them to be effective. And scheduling professional disinfecting services for your building will make sure the job is done right so that you can have peace of mind when you reopen after an infection.

The important thing to remember as we continue to deal with COVID-19 and other infectious diseases is to have a plan in place for COVID-19 disinfecting. Viruses will inevitably enter your facility and when that happens, it is too late to begin making your plan. Having a partner like City Wide on your side will help your business deal with a positive COVID-19 infection and help prevent costly damage to your production. They will be able to immediately schedule professional disinfecting services to come into your facility and begin the process of sanitizing and disinfecting affected areas.
