The Coronavirus: Perspective, Disinfecting & Sanitizing

According to statistics, there are 158.13 million people employed in the U.S. working in all sorts of environments, from gyms and schools to office buildings and national parks to sporting arenas and so much more. Every job has its lists of required skills, responsibilities, tasks, and milestones. But the last thing on those lists is cleaning operations. However, cleanliness is quickly becoming the number one priority for business owners and employees thanks to the latest COVID-19 virus outbreak.

The news about the Coronavirus is on every media outlet, with attention-grabbing headlines, updated counts of cases worldwide, and tips on how to stay protected. Cleaning is one of the most crucial tips given to prevent illness. At CBM we know the importance of a clean workspace, in fact, we even offer infection control as part of our list of services. With infection control services, our team sanitizes and disinfects using chemicals that kill up to 99.99% of all germs and viruses.

An Extra Level Of Prevention and Protection

With the Coronavirus now pandemic level, our clients are more concerned about the cleanliness of their facilities. To help give them an extra layer of prevention during this climate, CBM offers electrostatic disinfection.

An electrostatic spray surface cleaning allows us to apply an electrostatically charged mist onto surfaces and objects. Since the spray’s particles are positively charged, they cling to and coat surfaces more evenly and with a better grip. Electrostatic disinfection creates more of a magnetic bond with surfaces for greater coverage. It’s important to note, this method doesn’t replace regular cleaning. You still have to remove dirt, dust, and grime on a day-to-day basis, but it does give facilities such as schools, museums, gyms, and office buildings additional protection.

Stay Healthy and Protected By Following CDC Guidelines

Following general public hygiene is the way to go. Think covering yourself with a tissue if you cough or sneeze. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Frequently washing your hands for 20 seconds. At the workplace, don’t only clean surfaces, you want to make sure you’re killing germs so you want to disinfect and sanitize too.

Disinfect frequently touched objects, which means disinfecting your desk area, kitchen counters and other communal areas such as the conference rooms, sanitizing the restrooms, vacuuming hallways, mopping tile floors, and the like. Rest assured, the U.S. government has taken unprecedented plans with respect to travel for the sake of public health and the CDC has issued clinical guidance for healthcare professionals.
