Prevent The Flu at Your Commercial Facility
Updated: Feb 18, 2019
Flu season is in full swing and the number of flu outbreaks is on the rise. According to a Staples, Inc. survey, more than 44% of employed adults contracted the flu last year. Unfortunately, since most people spend their days indoors, minimizing sickness can be a challenge. One issue that contributes to the spread of sickness is that despite contracting the flu (which can remain contagious for 3 to 4 days after becoming sick), employees tend to return to work too early. In fact, over 55% of workers admitted to returning to work before they felt better. Sick employees coming into work means that workplaces become breeding grounds for the flu virus and that sickness spreads fast.
How a Commercial Cleaning Company Can Help
Commercial facilities are especially vulnerable to flu outbreaks, so it is important to take the necessary measures to protect both your facility and your workers. Start with reminding workers to get vaccinated, wash hands diligently, and stay home when they’re sick. One of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of infection is to hire a commercial cleaning company like New England Cleaning Services, Inc. that can perform routine cleanings to reduce infection-causing germs and keep up with the high standards of cleanliness required of commercial facilities.
A commercial cleaning company can:
Perform regular cleanings of floors, restrooms, windows, vents, and lights.
Address high touch areas like doorknobs, faucets, restrooms, keyboards, phones, and other shared areas.
Improve indoor air quality by reducing dust and other contaminants in the carpets, vents, light fixtures, and other surfaces.
Provide disinfection services for specialized rooms and equipment that are difficult to clean.
Why Choose Us?
New England Cleaning Services, Inc. has specialized equipment to effectively and efficiently disinfect across large surfaces. We use the most advanced techniques and equipment, like the electrostatic disinfection system, to ensure a high quality clean. During this new cleaning process, a mist that contains positively-charged particles is released, which enables the particles to stubbornly cling to surfaces and objects. The spray allows for a complete coating of surfaces, even for difficult to reach areas and objects. It is then followed by a sanitizing agent that is strong enough to kill most viruses for thorough disinfection. This convenient process usually dries within 5 minutes. This system means we can address contaminated areas fast and minimize any spread of diseases effectively.
At New England Cleaning Services, Inc., we pride ourselves on our attention to detail and communication with our clients. We have certifications through BSCAI and CBSE that are indicative of our dedication to consistently providing the highest level of service possible.
