Due to coronavirus (COVID-19), the world has changed. Businesses of all types, and residential buildings, must now take extra precautions to help curb the spread of infection.
Those infected may not show symptoms for as long as two weeks. This makes tracking the virus extremely difficult. In an open economy, regular cleaning and decontamination is the primary weapon to help contain the spread of infection.
This means hiring professional cleaners to ensure that cleaning and decontamination is carried out effectively and to the required standards and regulations.
What Should You Expect from COVID-19 Cleaning Services?
When you hire cleaning and decontamination services for coronavirus, you should expect the highest standards from experienced cleaning professionals. Rapid response is essential – coronavirus can exist on surfaces for as long as 14 to 17 days.
Effective cleaning is critical. It saves lives.
Once on site, the coronavirus cleaning team will isolate and seal off the infected area. Depending upon severity, we may need to seal off the entire building while deep cleaning and disinfection takes place.
Our team of certified cleaning technicians will wear full personal protective equipment, including full-face respirator masks.
As they work to decontaminate the area, our technicians will use industrial-strength disinfectants that are approved by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
All infected materials are cleaned, disinfected, and, if necessary, disposed of correctly as biohazard waste.

Protect Yourself and Your People
The policies you instigate in your workplace or residential building will relate to the premise’s use specifically. However, the following guidance should be included in all COVID-19 policies, regardless of the building’s purpose:
- Wash your hands thoroughly and regularly, using soap and warm water. If you sneeze, cough, or blow your nose, or you have been to another part of the building or a public area, make sure that you wash your hands.
- Keep hand sanitizing gel at entrances and exits, and insist on its use.
- If you cough or sneeze, use a tissue to cover your nose and mouth. Dispose of the tissue safely and immediately. After this, sanitize your hands by either washing them or using a hand sanitizing gel.
- Clean and disinfect desks, chairs, keyboards, screens and other objects regularly to reduce the risk of spreading any infection
- Report any contact with someone who is infected with COVID-19 immediately
- Keep your policies and procedures updated according to the latest COVID-19 advice
Prevent Coronavirus Infection
Thorough and regular cleaning – combined with the personal hygiene measures noted above – will help to prevent coronavirus infection in your home or place of work. Proper disinfection is essential, from floor to ceiling. You must not forget areas that are used by multiple people: restrooms, elevators, corridors, canteens and meeting rooms.
