Janitorial cleaning services render your facility
Some janitorial firms deliver facility
services that are just clean enough that people donít readily notice wanting details.
Our goal is to meet and exceed specifications with every service by actually removing
indoor contaminants, thereby reducing the risk of cross contamination illness while
improving your indoor air quality (IAQ.) This promotes keeping your occupants healthy
and pleased with the cleanliness of your facility. See our
Quality Assurance and
Customer Service policy.
A clean and hygienic work
environment shows your customers and employees that you care
about them and the facility. Studies confirm
"employees are measurably more productive and satisfied in a
well maintained, clean and bright work environment." As
well, current pandemic preparedness (eg: Swine Flu/H1N1)
plans include rigorous facility cleaning standards and
methodologies. Contact us to learn more about how your
cleaning should be routinely practicing and augmenting true
cross-contamination avoidance procedures. (Did you know that
the EPA has not yet certified any true disinfectant to be
labeled as “Green”, yet you can still receive full LEED
points by adhering to current California EPA requirements?
This suggests that it may be advisable to use an EPA
registered disinfectant, such as a Quaternary cleaner which
is virucidal, for cleaning appropriate environments and
highly touched surfaces?
Disinfectants registered with the EPA for use against
Influnza A will also be effective against the (H1N1)
