The COVID-19 pandemic dramatically transformed our lives. Fast forward to the present day, and the way we work and shop to the way we interact and socialize, the world remains a vastly different place today.
One facet that experienced a dramatic metamorphosis due to the COVID-19 pandemic is cleaning and sanitizing. At Select Janitorial, we didn’t just witness the change – we were trailblazers. Now there’s a burning question remaining: How has cleaning evolved in the “post-COVID” era?
Heightened Awareness of Hygiene
Before the pandemic, cleaning was seen by many as a routine chore, an essential but often underappreciated service.
Post-COVID, however, there has been a shift, as the entire world has become acutely aware of the importance of hygiene and its importance in staying healthy. Cleaning is no longer just about maintaining an aesthetic appeal but ensuring public safety and health. Businesses, schools, and public places emphasize their cleaning efforts, making it a cornerstone of their operations.
Increased Focus On High-Touch Surfaces
The pandemic shed light on the significance of cleaning “high-touch” surfaces. Doorknobs, elevator buttons, handrails, and shared equipment are some of the prime spots for viral transmission of germs. Our cleaning procedures at Select Janitorial have been adapted to ensure these high-touch areas get the special attention they need. We utilize EPA-approved disinfectants and proven techniques to ensure that these surfaces remain not just clean but sanitized.
Training and Expertise
The role of a janitor evolved rapidly due to the pandemic. Our team members are no longer just custodians to others, they are frontline warriors ensuring safe and hygienic spaces.
To keep up with the changing times, we’ve significantly ramped up our internal training programs at Select Janitorial. Our team is educated about the latest in disease transmission, disinfection methods, and safe cleaning practices. This investment in knowledge ensures that every client receives service grounded in the latest information.
We have noticed that people are much more invested and curious to know the details of what we are doing to ensure their safety. Select Janitorial believes in transparent communication with our clients. We discuss our protocols, the products we use, and the techniques we employ. Our goal is to ensure that our clients are not just satisfied but also well-informed.
In conclusion, the post-COVID world has brought about a paradigm shift for cleaning. What was once taken for granted is now in the limelight, underlining the importance of cleanliness and hygiene in our daily lives. At Select Janitorial, we’re proud to be at the forefront of these changes, offering services that are not only effective but also in tune with the times. As we continue to adapt to the new normal, rest assured that with us, your spaces will always be in the safest and cleanest hands!
