This year, we have already had to deal with COVID-19, which still has no vaccine and is still a massive public health threat. Now it is cold & flu season, which can be dangerous and deadly on its own. Combine the two, and the risks are exponentially higher! It’s critical to help keep employees healthy through COVID-19 and Flu Season.
In these unprecedented times, employee health is significantly more important than ever before. However, in the face of so much fear, uncertainty, and sickness, how can you help keep your work family safe? The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends a yearly flu vaccine to protect against flu viruses. Also, encouraging good hygiene practices and providing clean, disinfected environments are paramount to helping employees stay well and feel protected when and where it matters most. It counts from wall to wall, door to door, and floor to ceiling!
CLEANLINESS STARTS WITH A GOOD DISINFECTING SYSTEM
So how do you clean and disinfect all those surfaces and hard-to-reach spaces? Proprietary equipment features nozzles designed for specific applications, especially high-risk areas like door handles, light switches, elevator buttons, and similar high-touch locations. Electrostatic technology applies a negative charge, causing the disinfectant to cling to every exposed surface in your building.
The commercial disinfectants used by Integrity Janitorial Services offers medical-grade disinfectants to quickly eliminate over 99.99% of bacteria and viruses – including the cold & flu – as well as salmonella, E. coli, and disinfectant-resistant pathogens like MRSA. What’s more, these disinfectants are listed on the EPA’s List N for use on emerging pathogens like Coronavirus. Even though they are tough on germs, the disinfectants used include the EPA’s highest grade for safety and non-toxicity. They generate no harmful residues, no toxic byproducts, and no harsh or irritating fumes – so they’re gentle on people and the environment.
DISINFECTANTING ANTIMICROBIAL SYSTEM
Our antimicrobial system is the same cleaning process used to sanitize hospital operating rooms. It utilizes an electrostatic sprayer and allows the disinfectant to reach more areas on a microscopic level. The disinfectant receives an electric charge, which binds to surfaces and goes places that traditional sprayers and applicators cannot reach. Then we apply a surface treatment that helps prevent bacteria and mold from living on the surface. If this treatment is not disrupted or soiled, it can last for up to 3 months.
The Coronavirus epidemic has certainly been scary, and it still is – especially when you combine it with cold & flu season. From a public health perspective, we’ve never seen anything as catastrophic as COVID-19. In and of itself, cold & flu season alone is a scary time of year. Combine the two, and we’ve got some incredibly serious issues at hand. While commercial cleaning is incredibly important right now, it doesn’t have to be overwhelmingly scary.
