What does Covid-19 disinfection and cleaning involve?
Proper PPE for Sanitation
In order to protect our employees and minimize the spread of the virus, all Covid cleaning crews wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). ServiceMaster by Rice follows the most up-to-date CDC guidelines when serving at our work sites. Employees wear disposable gloves and gowns that are then removed and disposed of carefully. Further equipment like specialized masks and eye protection are also used.
EPA List N Products
The Environmental Protection Agency List N products are expected to kill coronavirus particles on surfaces. These products are recognized as being particularly effective in Covid-19 cleaning and sanitation. Your ServiceMaster by Rice team is attentive to use each List N product according to label instructions in order to maximize effectiveness.
The Importance of Cleaning and Disinfecting
Simply spraying a surface with the proper product is not enough when it comes to Covid-19 disinfection. Before using disinfectant, all surfaces are cleaned using soap and water to reduce the quantity of germs and dirt. After cleaning, crews use proper disinfecting methods to kill any germs or viral particles that may remain.
To optimize the hygiene of your home or workspace, it is recommended to practice your own routine cleaning of frequently-touched surfaces like light switches, keyboards, countertops, microwaves, and more.
Proper Disinfection Procedures for COVID-19
You can rest assured that your ServiceMaster by Rice Covid-19 cleaning team takes no shortcuts when it comes to the job at hand. After a proper and thorough cleaning of your surfaces, the use of disinfecting products commences with attention to the specifics. From following the manufacturer’s label instructions like leaving a surface wet for a period of time to selecting the optimal application equipment, our crews leave no surface unattended to.
Cleaning Up Soiled COVID Cleaning Materials
Our assistance finishes with the proper disposal and sealing up of soiled materials. We will not only leave your space sparkling clean and completely sanitized, but are sure to take all materials used along with us so you are not responsible for handling contaminated PPE.
