Corvus Janitorial is a franchised commercial cleaning business that offers a full range of cleaning and disinfecting services to commercial facilities.
As part of our efforts to keep customers safe and informed, we want to educate readers about the best practices for cleaning and disinfecting to prevent the spread of seasonal flu, COVID-19, and other illnesses.
While the Omicron variant of COVID-19 is prevalent, you can do many things to maintain a safe workspace for your employees and customers. We’ve provided some helpful guidelines on Omicron variant cleaning and disinfecting below.
Why Is Omicron Variant Disinfecting Important?
As more people were vaccinated against COVID-19 and infection rates decreased, businesses felt comfortable relaxing health and safety protocols. In some cases, this included paying less attention to cleaning and disinfecting.
Sadly, the Delta variant was evidence that it was important to remain vigilant. Now, the Omicron variant is spreading rapidly. While it may not cause as many severe cases of COVID-19, it can still be quite harmful to people who are immunocompromised, elderly, or have other risk factors.
Fortunately, it’s possible to mitigate the spread of Omicron, but that requires maintaining high Omicron variant disinfecting standards. The healthiest businesses will be those that establish and maintain vigorous cleaning processes.
Omicron Variant Cleaning Steps
It’s helpful to think of Omicron variant cleaning and disinfecting as two categories: the steps business owners and employees take to ensure a healthier environment and the cleaning and disinfecting measures we offer to prevent the spread of flu and COVID-19.
Daily Omicron Cleaning Processes for Employees
Some cleaning steps you can take every day to help prevent the spread of flu and other viruses include the following:
-Require frequent hand washing or sanitizing
-Clean high-touch surfaces frequently throughout the workday
-Regularly disinfect surfaces with approved products
-Ensure proper ventilation and airflow in high-traffic areas
The CDC offers excellent guidance on cleaning and disinfecting the workplace. Their guidelines include information on cleaning electronics and soft surfaces.
Professional Omicron Cleaning Methods
We take the health and safety of our customers seriously. Because of this, we have implemented protocols that our crews follow to prevent the spread of illness. Additionally, we provide them with the equipment and training they need to properly clean and sanitize your business.
Electrostatic Spraying and Omicron
Our professional cleaning crews use electrostatic spraying to ensure surfaces are thoroughly coated with cleaning and disinfecting liquids. The cleaner or disinfectant is given an electrical charge, then sprayed onto a surface that has been grounded. This creates an even coating of cleaner, even on the back and underside of objects.
Hospital Grade Disinfectants
It’s more important than ever for commercial cleaning providers to use the best available products. When it comes to cleaning and disinfecting, there’s no denying that hospitals have the highest standards. That’s why we are committed to using commercial-grade disinfectants that have been approved for use in medical facilities.
Proper Use of PPE Equipment by All Employees
It’s important to ensure that every person who comes into your business isn’t at risk for transmitting the flu, COVID-19, or other illness. Because of this, our cleaning protocols always include the use of PPE equipment by all cleaning crew employees.
