This fall, about one third of the Washington DC Metro region’s workforce is expected to return to their workplaces, according a recent study by the Greater Washington Partnership. In anticipation of this gradual return to office sites, employers and facility managers are including emergency disinfection plans as part of their reopening strategy. Preparing for a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 by having a cleaning activation plan in place can help your company resume operations as quickly as possible.
Mister Kleen has developed a multi-pronged approach to disinfecting for COVID-19 since the SARS-CoV-2 virus was first reported in the metro Washington DC region. We have supported essential businesses and agencies in remaining operational by adapting our Total Facility Disinfection program to address the current outbreak.
In the past, the service has been popular during the annual seasonal flu season and other severe viral outbreaks such as norovirus. With the arrival of COVID-19, clients are now incorporating our Enhanced Kleen program into their scope of work.
Our Enhanced Kleen program includes ongoing disinfection measures as well as emergency activations for positive COVID-19 cases. If your facility has a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19, we can activate our specialty team to respond 24/7 and perform a deep cleaning of all areas used by the person who is infected. This would comprehensive electrostatic disinfection of all surfaces and contents in offices, bathrooms, and common areas.
Once the area has been appropriately disinfected, the areas can be reopened for use and operations can resume. To help maintain a healthy work environment so that business continues without interruption, regular cleaning staff would provide ongoing cleaning and disinfection of high touch surfaces and high traffic areas. The frequency of routine cleaning and disinfection would depend on factors including how the space is used and how many people are using it at any given time.
A PROFESSIONAL APPROACH
This multi-layered approach has helped to provide ease of mind to employees in offices that have continued working through the pandemic, as well as those returning to the workplace. We closely collaborate with clients to instill confidence that offices are clean, from providing hand sanitizer stations placed in high traffic areas to posting signs and notes to alert occupants indicating that a space has been recently disinfected.
This attention to detail is a hallmark of our work over the 44 years we have been in business. Another is our commitment to continuous training that keep our crews up to date on the latest cleaning trends, including how to address serious viral outbreaks such as SARS-CoV-2. That training has included four senior executives sharing what they learned after getting certified in infection and contamination control measures from the Global Biorisk Advisory Council.
