We have changed the products the team uses to a natural bactericidal disinfectant for all our clients.
The new green disinfectant is used for cleaning all areas. It is a germicidal cleaner that has highly active ingredients that clean, kill bacteria and deodorize leaving behind a fresh scent. It is effective against serious public health concerns including Escherichia coli, HIV-1, Influenza Type A/Texas, MRSA, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus and epidermidis, Streptococcus pyogenes, human Corona Virus
All touch points are disinfected with a hospital-grade bactericidal disinfectant. This product is effective against Staphylococcus, Salmonella, E-coli. This disinfectant is also a virucidal against the common cold, Influenza, HIV, human Coronavirus, SARS-related illnesses, and was effective against the H1N1 pandemic.
Micro-fibre cloths will be used, as these are more effective at picking up dirt and bacteria. Just using water and microfiber removes 98.9% of bacteria from smooth surfaces. Because of the fiber’s net-like structure, microfiber mops have more surface contact and remove more dirt than cotton mops do.
We also use a steamer to clean the washrooms including the toilets, sinks. This is a multipurpose steamer that reaches up to 212°F (100°C) to clean. This helps kill most germs and viruses. Most germs die from 165 degrees F to 250 degrees F (121°C) within a couple of minutes.
We assure you that our team members have not travelled within the last 30 days, and have not had any contact with anyone ill. All team members that do get sick, or have any allergies are not sent to any of our clients’ homes.
We also request the same from our clients: if you are sick, have been in contact with anyone COVID-19 positive, or have travelled out of province in the last 14 days, please inform our team right away.
The teams are using disposable gloves since the outbreak. This is to eliminate the risk of any cross contamination. Our teams are also equipped with masks that are mandatory to be worn while working. We have provided sanitizer in all of the company cars to use between services.
