Why SERVPRO for Proactive Commercial Cleaning
Being a proactive corporate and commercial business owner or property manager means taking control of a situation by causing things to happen instead of waiting to respond after things happen. This ‘staying ahead’ approach is especially critical for Charlotte-area businesses during the current coronavirus pandemic.
For example, your office may not have been exposed, but you still want your employees and customers to feel secure. One way to maintain a healthy and safe work environment is through proactive cleaning.
While it doesn’t prevent or protect buildings from future contamination, proactive cleaning provides peace of mind. It ensures environments are thoroughly and professionally cleaned, according to Centers for Disease Control (CDC) specifications.
How does proactive cleaning work?
Deep cleaning and disinfecting has moved up on the list of priorities for businesses and institutions, but how does proactive cleaning work? SERVPRO of NW Charlotte, Lincoln County, Southern and NE Gaston has developed a proactive cleaning and disinfection protocol based CDC specifications.
Through years of experience in dealing with biological contaminants, we’ve identified three categories of contamination:
- Proactive cleaning when there aren’t any confirmed coronavirus cases or known coronavirus exposure.
- Cleaning for possible coronavirus exposure.
- Reactive cleaning when there’s a confirmed coronavirus case.
Proactive commercial cleaning goes beyond the scope of work that a regular janitorial team performs daily. It involves a facility or structure deep cleaning and disinfection -- from kitchen vents to carpets to manufacturing equipment.
Steps may include cleaning porous and nonporous surfaces, disinfecting nonporous surfaces, cleaning and disinfecting equipment, tools and supplies, and disposing of waste.
Planning for deep cleaning
Before conducting commercial cleaning, we ask customers for floor plans of their building or facility ahead of time. If floor plans aren’t available, our production manager will visit the location before the start of the project to determine how many people we’ll need, the best way for our team to move through the building, where we’ll start and end and if we’ll split up our team, so one group cleans the office while others take care of the warehouse.
Having a proactive cleaning strategy in place before the work begins allows our deep cleaning experts to tackle the project efficiently and thoroughly.
