As your partner in providing safe and clean environments for your building’s occupants throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Mister Kleen is collaborating with our clients as they prepare for employees to re-enter their facilities. We tailor our cleaning protocols, before and after occupants re-enter the facility, to our clients’ needs and budgets. We continue to remain flexible and responsive to potential scope-of-work changes in the event businesses are required to return to more restrictive policies.
CLEANING, SANITIZING AND DISINFECTING
CLEANING is a necessary first step so that sanitizing or disinfecting can work effectively. Cleaning by using soap (or detergent) and water will remove dirt and debris, but it doesn’t kill bacteria or viruses.
SANITIZING lowers the number of bacteria on surfaces to a safe level based on public health standards. Sanitizers don’t kill viruses, so in facilities with severe viral outbreaks including COVID-19, disinfection is required.
DISINFECTING kills viruses and bacteria on hard, nonporous surfaces by using EPA-registered chemicals. Disinfectants do not kill germs continuously or after recontamination, so frequent reapplication is required to prevent the spread of infection.
STEPS TO REOPENING YOUR FACILITY
Prior to reopening, collaborate with your Mister Kleen representative to establish the scope of work needed in different areas of your building. Occupied areas may require increased frequency of cleaning and disinfection in high touch and high traffic areas.
Our Specialty Teams use state-of-the-art Electrostatic Spraying technology that covers all sides of hard surfaces with disinfectant – providing floor-to-ceiling coverage that conventional trigger sprays may miss. Electrostatic spraying is appropriate for all hard surfaces including but not limited to countertops, desks, furniture and fixtures, doorknobs, handrails, keyboards, and elevator buttons. A Spray Disinfectant is utilized on soft surfaces such as carpets, rugs , drapes and upholstered furniture.
Mister Kleen collaborates with clients to monitor and evaluate for frequency and levels of cleaning needed as more employees begin to occupy the facility for extended periods of time. Continuous cleaning and disinfecting services will focus on high touch and high traffic areas.
