COVID-19 SERIES | Cleaning | 2019

Over the last two months much has changed in the cleaning industry because of the COVID-19 challenge the World has faced.

Our company, a group of residential and janitorial divisions has changed standard operating procedures and safety standards to meet the challenge and keep homes and businesses safe and sanitary.

It Starts With Internal Culture

As a cleaning company change has to happen internally first which means better habits, procedures, and safety standards that our employees follow.

We start with keeping our team safe which translates into keeping customers safe.  A few highlights:

  • Everyone in the team is temperature checked on workdays
  • Standard questions related to COVID-19 safety are asked
  • Safety gloves and masks are worn
  • In some cases face shields and bio-hazard cleaning suits are worn
