Commercial cleaning for covid? Here’s what to look for.

Commercial cleaning was thrust into the spotlight shortly after the onset of COVID-19. With a heightened focus on hygiene and killing germs, more and more businesses turned to professional cleaning companies to help keep work environments safe.

During a pandemic such as this one, traditional methods won’t do when it comes to cleaning. Dry dusting kicks up particles and distributes them into the air. And wet dusting doesn’t reach those hard-to-reach places.

With that in mind, commercial cleaning companies had to up their game in order to combat this ever-spreading virus. However, one Sioux Falls commercial cleaning company was able to take a “business as usual” approach to cleaning during COVID because it was already using advanced disinfecting methods. That company is Kleenrite Co.

Insist on electrostatic sprayers to disinfect surfaces.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, the coronavirus primarily spreads through close contact from person to person. Some without symptoms can even spread the virus. While we’re still learning about it, the CDC suggests that it’s possible for the virus to persist on surfaces and infect someone if they touch an affected surface and then touch their eyes or mouth.

Therefore, surfaces such as desks, tables, chairs, handrails, door handles, and office equipment should be cleaned and disinfected to stop the possible spread of contaminants.

Fortunately, this virus is relatively easy to kill on such surfaces – if you know how to do it and have the right tools. One such tool is an electrostatic sprayer. By giving the molecules of disinfectant a positive electrostatic charge before leaving the spray gun, the disinfectant attaches to surfaces evenly and creates a coating that distributes the disinfectant into recessed areas.

Kleenrite uses electrostatic sprayers as part of its cleaning process to truly disinfects surface areas. It’s the same system used by airlines and the process works well for awkwardly shaped objects or hard-to-reach places. Once the spray is applied, the sanitizing agent goes to work to disinfect the surface.

If you’re going to clean, Kleenrite.

Kleenrite cleaning pros are uniquely prepared to clean and disinfect your business in accordance with the protocols set by the CDC. With years of experience dealing with contaminants, Kleenrite is able to go beyond what typical cleaners can do.

Heightened cleaning standards are going to be in place for the long haul. And businesses will have to demonstrate improvement in cleaning protocols to employees and customers in order for them to feel safe.

If you currently work with a commercial cleaning company, ask what they’re doing to comply with CDC standards. Or if you’re looking to start a relationship with a commercial cleaner, ask the same question. And be sure to compare with the strict standards that have been put in place by Kleenrite long before COVID.

Keep your office safe. Choose your cleaning company wisely.
