DISINFECTING AND PREPAREDNESS
Working with renowned experts in the field of environmental science, ServiceMaster Recovery Management has developed preventative baseline disinfecting protocols and standard operational practices related to the COVID-19 virus. To best meet our clients’ needs we have developed two areas of operating procedures. One set of protocols addresses any preventative disinfecting needs for facilities at a heightened risk of infection or looking to take proactive measures to protect their customers, residents or patrons. The second set of standard operating procedures relates to any facility that believes it has been exposed to the COVID-19 virus or has a confirmed case of the coronavirus. Developing two sets of procedures helps us maximize the effectiveness of the disinfecting while reducing any unnecessary cost.
Both our preparation and disinfecting protocols involve not only specific requirements for application but also the disinfecting systems to be used. Also, we utilize strict personal protective equipment (PPE) standards for all employees throughout the entire process. We are currently conducting disinfecting services for COVID-19 coronavirus in Washington, Oregon and Alaska. We have years of experience handling similar outbreaks and pandemics such as SARS and MERS.
In a crucial situation such as COVID-19 exposure, you need experts who not only know how to properly disinfect your facility but have experience in doing so. ServiceMaster Recovery Management understands the delicate nature of managing a disinfecting project when a facility is exposed and will work with you to make sure all aspects of your project are handled with the utmost professionalism.
If your facility has a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 coronavirus, ServiceMaster Recovery Management has established protocols to provide the most effective disinfecting available. We developed these protocols and procedures by working with renowned experts in the field of environmental science. We will provide a detailed scope for every job to ensure the facility disinfection plan is followed including disinfecting procedures, employee personal protective equipment, and disinfectant product use. In addition, we have a clear project communication plan to keep all stakeholders updated each step of the way. We understand that often the impact of exposure to a virus such as COVID-19 goes beyond the facility itself and affects the morale of personnel, customers, residents, students and even the general public. Having an effective disinfection plan completed by leading experts in the field of clean up and remediation is critical.
ServiceMaster Recovery Management has developed a three-stage preventative disinfection process to provide the most effective results possible. First, we use a pump-sprayer application system. This process involves spray disinfection of all horizontal surfaces as well as any high-touch points, such as door handles, elevator buttons, escalator rails and so on. Second, we follow up with manual wiping of high touch points and general areas to provide the most complete coverage and disinfection of your facility. Lastly, we work our way backward out of each room disinfecting the floor as we exit. This three-stage preventative disinfecting process provides the most comprehensive preventative disinfecting available. We use EPA registered hospital-grade disinfectants throughout the entire process.
Established protocols are only effective if the technicians implementing them are properly trained. This is where SRM preventative disinfecting excels compared to a standard cleaning or janitorial company. We have years of experience in not only biohazard and trauma cleanup but specifically with previous coronavirus outbreaks such as SARS. All of our technicians are trained on the proper use of the disinfecting products and systems as well as the correct use of personal protective equipment (PPE). This is important to not only protect the technicians but also reduce the chance of cross-contamination or further spread of the virus.
Our project managers can provide pricing for the preventative disinfection of your facility. We will walk you through your specific cleaning plan making sure to address any areas of concern. In addition, we can work with you to complete the service during off-hours to limit customer disruption if that is preferred.
As the pandemic continues to grow, so does the demand for pre and post disinfecting services. If you would like more information or to schedule a walkthrough and quote for your facility or business, please call us at (425) 906-3872.
