Cleaning is the front line defense for killing germs and viruses through Sanitation & Disinfection
Let us help you Reduce the Cost of Illness
Every year, sick workers cost companies as much as $225 billion in lost productivity, higher healthcare expenses and increased absenteeism due to contagious illnesses. A hand hygiene program and proper cleaning protocols that include disinfecting can help translate to:
- Fewer janitorial man hours burned = More productivity
- Fewer sick employees = More revenue
- Fewer absent students and teachers = More cost savings
Routine cleaning removes the soil and dirt that harbors the infectious agents while disinfecting kills the remaining environmental pathogens. Effective cleaning and disinfecting of environmental surfaces, including “high touch” or frequently touched surfaces, significantly decreases the number of environmental pathogens on those surfaces, which in turn, reduces the risk of transmission and infection.
We’re here so that you don’t have to worry about Sanitation & Disinfection

Putting Your Fears to Rest: Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have plenty of PPE and recommended disinfectant on hand to ensure your employees can work safely to protect themselves and your clients?
Yes, Our employees have been given masks and hand sanitizer to keep for themselves at all times while on the job. In fact, when we were initially slowed down, we had a few employees come into the office that helped us to make close to 1000 masks to be able to provide to all of our employees.
Are you providing additional training that includes how to properly put on and take off PPE so they don’t re-contaminate surfaces or contaminate themselves when putting on or taking off?
Yes, we have been training & continuing discussions of this in our weekly meetings. We are making sure that masks are being worn correctly, shoe coverings when necessary, & in some instances, we are having them wear double or triple gloves.
Do you use equipment like electrostatic sprayers or foggers to provide additional disinfecting besides hand wiping?
Yes, we have been utilizing electrostatic sprayers in the school systems we serve for 2-3 years now to help combat influenza. Fortunately, we already had them prior to this pandemic as we have been using them more often & in more than just schools. Churches, Commercial Offices, Retail customers, have all requested these.
Are you setting up stations with an additional disinfectant in spray bottles that your clients can use to disinfect their work areas?
Not for every client, but for those that want to purchase additional hand sanitizer, we have been setting up dispenser stands around their buildings.
Are you providing your clients with additional training on how to properly disinfect? (ie: dwell time)
We have sent out a letter to customers with CDC recommendations and our commitment to increased cleaning/disinfecting in high touch areas.
Are you doing any Health Checks or Pre-Shift Surveys for your employees? If so, explain.
Yes, before every shift, each employee has to verbally state they have not had any illness symptoms along with having their supervisor scan them for temperature. They then have to sign & date a document we keep on file for records.
What is your protocol when an employee shows symptoms or have been diagnosed with Covid-19?
They are not allowed to come back to work unless there is verification from a doctor’s office that COVID or any other illness is not present.
What is your protocol for allowing an employee back to work if they have shown symptoms or have been diagnosed?
First, they have to be verified from a doctor’s office of diagnosis. Then they have to self-quarantine for at least 2 weeks, and must have a 2nd doctor’s letter stating that they are symptom-free.
What are your social distancing guidelines for your employees?
Standard 6’ apart when possible. Wear masks when traveling together. Take lunch/breaks separately.
What additional training are you providing your employees? (GBAC Fundamentals, Hazard Communication, Bloodborne Pathogens, other?)
Our employees have always been trained on Bloodborne Pathogens & Haz Comm. We are currently not requiring certification on GBAC Fundamentals but this is at the front of discussion at every weekly meeting we are having and the importance of cleaning for health.
Have you updated your SDS sheets for any new chemicals you use?
Yes, we have.
How are you changing your cleaning protocols to provide additional disinfecting services?
During this time, we have added a new high-touch disinfecting procedure where we use disinfectant cleaning agents on all doorknobs, light switches, door frames, handrails, appliance control panels and other high touch areas in the areas we service.
Our trained custodial staff will continue to use hospital-grade products in their cleaning regimen to help reduce the spread of communicable illnesses. If you see our staff wearing masks, do not be alarmed. We are simply taking an extra precaution as we enter a multitude of areas throughout the week.
