Cleaning and Sanitizing Services: When Do You Hire a Professional?

There’s no denying that COVID-19 has drastically changed the lives of everyone in our country. Now, more than ever, it’s imperative that hospitals and other healthcare facilities are sanitized and safe for working medical professionals and incoming patients. 

As COVID-19 continues to cause concerns, businesses everywhere, regardless of industry, need to shift gears and learn how to operate in a post-COVID world. One of the most basic components of a company, the physical location, is potentially a threat to the safety and wellbeing of employees and visitors. 

To combat the threat of COVID-19, business leaders must take drastic measures in order to secure the premises and eliminate the virus. For many businesses, it’s not a matter of having enough cleaning equipment because COVID-19 is an invisible threat, and evidence suggests that the virus can be active on various surfaces for extended periods of time. This means that every surface, not just high-touch areas like doorknobs and handles, must be thoroughly disinfected.

For hospitals and other medical facilities continuing operation to combat the threat of COVID-19, sanitizing the surfaces on a consistent basis decreases the chances of transmitting the disease to uninfected patients and staff. 

So, when should you hire a professional?

Your Facility is High Traffic

Healthcare settings that have remained open throughout this crisis are the most at risk for having the virus in their facilities because of the amount of traffic inside the facility on a day to day basis. According to a recent study posted by the CDC, healthcare professionals are the most at risk of contracting the illness due to their close proximity to infected patients and a general lack of Personal Protective Equipment. 

You Have Limited Access to the Right Chemicals

Unfortunately, with COVID-19’s introduction to the world, the supply of disinfectants, sanitizers, and even cleaning supplies have drastically been limited. Prior to this outbreak, it was quite easy to find all of these supplies, but what was once only bought sparingly by the public has become sought after by both private companies and individuals alike.

When it comes time to sanitize your healthcare facility, Compleat Restorations is an exclusive provider and applicator of BioSpray D2, which is a hospital-grade disinfectant that kills 99.9% of detectable pathogens and is safe on a wide variety of surfaces, making it an ideal solution for medical facilities.
