/PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- MaidPro, a house cleaning business, has released a Daily Disinfecting Defense program for office and commercial spaces in response to the rising spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The program focuses on disinfecting the common areas and other high touch zones of an office or commercial building that are most likely to transmit germs. The service includes cleaning and disinfecting the following surfaces: kitchen and dining areas, conference rooms and corresponding technology (phones, keyboards, touch screens), and other common spaces (main door knobs, light switches, tabletops and chair arms of shared rooms). The service can also be tailored to fit your specific needs or area.
"We are in a unique position to help battle the Coronavirus. We want to be completely transparent in how we are handling this situation," says MaidPro's Chief Cleaning Officer, Melissa Homer
. "Our locations are locally owned and operated, which means we are staying up-to-date on the area's latest legal requirements and safety recommendations. The health and safety of our PROs and your family are of the utmost importance to us. All of our staff have taken a Coronavirus Cleaning Course which details, down to the science, how to best protect and disinfect themselves and your homes from the virus."
While many businesses, schools, and elderly homes have janitorial services, MaidPro is focusing on the deep, disinfecting cleans. Many routine janitorial services include light cleaning and tidying up. There is a vast difference between "sanitizing' and "disinfecting"; disinfection being the only procedure to kill the COVID-19 virus. MaidPro uses hospital-grade disinfectants to ensure your home is safe.
MaidPro has detailed how they are keeping their PROs and clients safe: All of our PROs are trained in Coronavirus cleaning. They have completed a 45-minute course that details, down to the exact chemistry, the proper procedure for cleaning and eliminating COVID-19. All of our PROs wear gloves at all times. The gloves are changed throughout the cleaning processes and sealed into bags when they are finished. Special techniques are used to put on and remove the gloves.
- Although the CDC does not recommend the use of masks, many offices have them available at the request of the PRO or client.
- MaidPro uses hospital-grade disinfectants and color-coded towels to ensure there is no cross-contamination in the home and all viruses are killed.
- The hospital-grade disinfectants are sprayed onto the surface and let sit for 10 minutes before being cleaned off. This ensures the disinfection can be fully effective.
- Each PRO has a daily check-in with their manager. They are to stay home if they are sick, may have been exposed to the virus, or are living with someone that is sick or may be exposed.
- Each client is emailed and called before their clean to confirm if they are self-quarantining or if they are sick or may have been exposed to the virus.
For more information please contact your local MaidPro office.
As the spread of COVID-19 continues, MaidPro is urging people to take the disinfection of their environments seriously. Many professional cleaning companies are being deemed "essential businesses" during this time and remain open for business.
