Importance of Commercial Cleaning and Sanitizing

Commercial cleaning is essential to any business operating in the post-COVID-19 era. When you hire experienced professionals to clean and sanitize your environment, you make a great impression on potential customers. Learn what commercial cleaning and sanitization entail and why they are a vital part of your property maintenance.

What Are Cleaning and Sanitization Services?

Cleaning occurs before sanitation. When a commercial cleaning crew cleans your building, they remove organic matter as well as grease, oil and proteins on surfaces. This makes it easier to sanitize surfaces. During sanitization, your cleaning company uses chemicals that can kill microorganisms and germs left behind after cleaning.

Electrostatic Spraying Provides an Extra Layer of Protection

Electrostatic spraying covers surfaces more evenly. From the elevator button to the breakroom counter, electrostatic spraying ensures that disinfecting chemicals touch every area of the office, killing germs and making it hard for bacteria and viruses to attach to surfaces. Additionally, electrostatic spraying doesn't require a long dwell time as other chemicals do. This allows the technician to cover large areas in a short amount of time. 

A Clean Workplace is a Healthier Workplace

To give employees confidence in their safety, it's important to take proactive steps to clean the office as often as possible. To avoid absences and loss of productivity, invest in a commercial cleaning company such as Stratus Building Solutions. 

Besides setting up hand hygiene stations and requiring PPE in the workplace, implement regular cleaning after employees go home for the night. This can slow the spread of coronavirus and other illnesses. Bacteria can reproduce rapidly on surfaces that you don't frequently sanitize.

Dust Leads to Respiratory Hazards

Besides impeding sanitization, accumulated dust contains allergens the aggravate conditions such as asthma and COPD and can cause respiratory distress among your customers and employees. That's why it's important to engage an office cleaning service that you can trust to keep your business free of dust and debris. 

Bathrooms Need Sanitizing as Well as Cleaning 

The bathroom in a commercial building becomes a petri dish of germs and bacteria following regular use. That's why it's important to hire a janitorial service that uses hospital-grade chemicals that are gentle on the environment and on the lungs of people in the building. 

Stratus Building Solutions uses products listed on EPA’s List N: Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2.
