Following prudent and professional expertise as to how to best handle cleaning and disinfecting amid the pandemic will give your company an edge when it comes to the safety and wellbeing of employees and customers.

Without mincing words, a lot can go wrong if you employ the services of cleaning companies that are not up to par with disinfection and other cleaning activities you need to keep your office environment safe.

Here are some tips to help you find the best disinfection service providers for your office.

Utilize Information from Relevant Health Authorities

The coronavirus pandemic is shrouded in lots of uncertainties, and this also comes to play in the office environment. With numerous speculations, suspicions, and ever-evolving facts, it is easy to get confused. However, one way to ensure you are doing your best to protect your customers and staff is to work with what you have. Rather than worry about not doing enough, start working with the guidelines stipulated by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Center for Disease Control for safer workplaces.

Engage professional disinfectant service providers such as ourselves who work within these guidelines and best practices to clean your office.  Our office cleaning crews will focus on the health of your staff, customers, and the nature of your office when disinfecting your office and help mitigate the health risks you are worried about. You need to focus on the information you have now as it concerns the virus and safety measures. When you implement actions based on what you already know, you are better prepared to make the necessary adjustments as you receive more information from appropriate agencies.

Focus on Thorough and Timely Office Cleaning:

You should specifically look for cleaning services that run more thorough, effective, and timely disinfection programs as it is what your office needs amid this pandemic.

The nature of the COVID-19 virus makes it able to live on surfaces for days, which increases the chances of others getting infected from the same surface. If you have a very busy office, it could take just a few hours before the virus spreads around, even if there is only one infected person at the beginning of work hours.  What your office needs is regular disinfection and cleaning, especially in high infection and transmission areas, to drastically reduce the risk of infection in your building.

Engaging the frequent services of professional cleaning crews like Rainbow will cut down the chances of infections, protect your staff and customers, and help you rest better, knowing that you have their health concerns as a priority.

Preventing the spread of the COVID 19 virus is more than simply wiping surfaces than some inexperienced cleaners might do. This will only offer false assurance but no actually reduced health risk.

Rainbow Property Maintenance offers customers effective disinfection services that are well-tailored towards individual office needs to combat the spread of the virus anywhere around your office.

What to look out for when choosing a professional disinfection service 

In your search for a professional office cleaner, you will come across many service providers who will claim to have the expertise you’re searching for; but this can get very confusing, very fast.

The best way to choose the right professional disinfection company is to rate them based on important several important metrics and see how well they measure up.

Here are some key areas to consider when choosing a professional disinfection service:

An Appropriate Response Plan:

A good cleaning and disinfecting service provider will have a standard working coronavirus response plan to disinfect your building without causing upheaval to your building functions or damaging property.

Choose a disinfection service that has a plan to prevent an outbreak in your office by adequately cleaning every area. This cleaning service should be prepared to handle the nature of your office when working to prevent infections.

In case a patient or infected person is identified, a reputable disinfecting service provider should also have a plan to immediately disinfect the entire office to prevent escalations and multiple transmissions.

You can reach out to several disinfection services, compare their response plans, and pick the one you think is most suitable or trustworthy.

Appropriate Chemicals and Techniques

Not every cleaning agent or chemical can eradicate the COVID 19 virus from your building, so you must be particular about chemicals that can do that.

The same thing goes for disinfection techniques. The technique for ridding an office of rodents or insects will be ineffective on the virus. Hence, the disinfection company must be trained or skilled in the appropriate procedure.

No matter how enthusiastic or hardworking a cleaning company is, their service is useless to you if they don’t know the required techniques or have the chemical disinfectants that can eradicate the COVID 19 virus.

There is a list of proven COVID 19 killing disinfectants that cleaning services should have. The disinfection process is not complete without a List N disinfectant around your building.

Each chemical disinfectant also comes with specific requirements and recommendation on how they should be used, and their dwell time (how long they must last on a surface for proper disinfection).

Experience levels in disinfection service 

As important as it is to support and patronize young and new companies, that might not be the best course of action in times like this. The best disinfection company for your building is one that has a history of health-based cleaning. We at Rainbow have been cleaning and disinfecting medical offices since 2004.

Several new office cleaning companies recently took up health-based cleaning due to the coronavirus pandemic outbreak, so they have very little to no experience in this field.

On the other hand, some companies like ourselves have been handling health-based cleaning for a while, even when it wasn’t a global emergency. We have both the concern for the facility’s health, as well as the relevant experience to ensure your health and safety.

Look for a solid Chicago-based disinfection company with experience to make sure your building disinfecting is handled thoroughly and properly.
