Why You Need To Hire a Cleaning Company During COVID-19

October 5, 2020

Over the last couple of months there’s been an influx of visitors in Edmonton and surrounding areas due to the Stanley Cup playoffs that took place in the city, and now that cases are starting to increase again, it’s imperative that you consider hiring a cleaning company for your business.

Did you know?

COVID-19 can stay active in fresh droplets anywhere from eight to fourteen minutes.

Crazy right? Even crazier is that a sneeze can spread droplets from up to twenty-three to twenty-seven feet from the nose, and with people walking in and out of businesses every day, you never know what they could be tracking in.

As of September 29, there were 406 new COVID cases reported in Alberta, which brings us to the article’s importance and why you need to hire a cleaning company during COVID-19.

Here are some reasons why hundreds of business owners choose us.

We Use Specialized Equipment and Chemicals

Our team is equipped with the best cleaning equipment and environment-friendly solutions to keep your workplace properly sanitized. With our new ionization backpack, we’re able to effectively eliminate the spread of bacteria. The “Victory Backpack,” as we call it, is a cordless electrostatic sprayer that we use with our high-grade germicide to clean and disinfect high traffic surfaces while minimizing the risk of spreading.

The backpack can coat up to 23,000 square feet, which allows us to disseminate the germicide quicker and provide better coverage as well. The best part is that the application process is hands-free, so you don’t need to wipe down any surfaces.

The best part about the backpack is that it uses less fluid than your typical sprayer and covers more surface area while doing so, making every drop go to use.

Deeper Clean vs. Surface Clean

The common misconception in this industry is that using a damp cloth to clean a dirty surface will get the job done and disinfect. To make sure that something is properly sanitized, you have to ensure a proper “dwell time,” which is the amount of time a germicide must stay wet on surfaces in order to be effective against germs or bacteria to actually “disinfect.”

Although it depends on the surface type and temperature, there is evidence of COVID-19 being able to survive on surfaces or objects from anywhere between a few hours or a few days. So, it’s important that your business is receiving the proper sanitization procedures.

If you’re going with the “wipe it down with a cloth” technique, you could actually be spreading the bacteria/germs if not done correctly.

Highly Trained Staff

Right now, more than ever, it’s so important that you have a team that’s passionate and motivated to get the job done right the first time. Far too often we have seen companies hire a commercial cleaner only to find out that the job was only half done. This is really sad to hear/see given the situation with COVID-19, but just shows the importance that if the team isn’t on point, you could be endangering lives.

We treat the space as if it was our own, because, in a lot of cases with the pandemic, it is our own, as to get over this “hump,” we all need to work together. Our motivation is to keep you and those around you safe from contracting any sort of sickness/illness.

We follow a strict code of ethics and ensure excellence in whatever job we have in front of us.

The investment into a cleaning company you may think isn’t worth it. But when you compare it to the consequence of potentially losing credibility as a business due to someone tracking in unwelcomed bacteria and it wasn’t addressed, it’s worth every penny.

The best part is we offer solutions that cater to any-sized business. Get in touch with us to get a FREE quote!

We hope you’re all doing well during these unprecedented times.

Have a great October!
