Listen, we’re not even going to prevent to be un-biased here. As a Burlington janitorial service, our entire reason for being – the point of our existence as an organization – is to provide top notch commercial cleaning services. We’ve been promoting the idea that clean workplaces are healthy workplaces for 30 years.
The fact that COVID-19 has had such a devastating impact on our society & world has led to an increased awareness of and enthusiasm for facility cleaning and sanitization. The visibility of these procedures have led to some critics calling these COVID control measures hygiene theater.
The facts are that we know facility cleanliness is a factor in containing all kinds of infectious diseases. This is because some diseases travel by what is known as indirect contact – an infected person touches a surface; they leave behind infecting agents (such as a virus); another person touches the surface and becomes infected. Diseases that can be spread this way include chicken pox, influenza (the flu), the common cold, including rhinovirus, norovirus, menigitis, and more .Cleaning and sanitizing surfaces breaks the chain of infection by removing the virus from the environment. It’s not theater, it’s science.
That being said, there are times when it’s important for your customers and employees to receive an additional level of emotional support and validation of their concerns. At this time, lots of people, particularly those with other health concerns, are being extremely selective about where they’re choosing to do business. This concern transcends the retail and restaurant environment and includes medical facilities and service businesses as well. If it is important to you that cleaning services are provided in a way that’s visible and reassuring to your customer base, our Burlington janitorial services can certainly be scheduled accordingly. We also provide commercial cleaning services after hours and on weekends if that works better for you.
