It is no secret COVID-19 has changed many aspects of life. From day-to-day operation to the way clients interact the business sector has seen a huge shift. The cleaning industry is no different. As our clients have had to change to keep their employees and customers safe, we have made changes to meet those needs. Kleen Office Environments and many other Grand Rapids area cleaning services are working hard to keep West Michigan safe. 

Changes to Grand Rapids Cleaning Services

Approved Products

Kleen Office Environments has been working hard to bring the best and healthiest cleaners to their clients for years. COVID-19 has raised the standards for all. Cleaning companies all over are now holding themselves to a higher standard of clean. They are looking to agencies and groups like the CDC and DHHS to suggest the proper supplies. They realize the importance of their job in keeping the community safe. Many of these products take longer to disinfect and are not a one size fits all. The proper company will know what fits your needs and business. A quick chat with your cleaning service should assure you they are using the best cleaners and disinfectants. 

Cleaning Time

As we mentioned above it may take your cleaning service longer to clean now. They may even need to stop in more often to meet standards. Where cleaning services were once stopping in daily or weekly, they are now stopping multiple times a day to disinfect. Disinfecting before employees arrive and after they leave are now common practices for most companies. The added amount of thoroughness and disinfecting may take your team significantly longer. Remember this when planning a time for your cleaning team to arrive and give them time to work. 

Protection for All

Your cleaning team’s job is not just to keep your building looking good, but to keep it safe for all. Not only are they performing extra cleaning and disinfecting, but they are also wearing extra protection. PPE, personal protective equipment, is being worn by all cleaning personnel. You can expect to see your cleaning team wearing masks, face shields, and gloves. Gloves will most likely be changed multiple times as workers change cleaning solutions and disinfect multiple areas. As cleaning service workers move throughout buildings, they risk being exposed. Making PPE and other protective steps are particularly important to us at Kleen Office Environments. Our staff takes extra steps to keep themselves and our clients healthy. 

COVID-19 has changed many things, including the way we clean. Kleen Office Environments wants you to know we are taking extra steps to keeping the Grand Rapids and West Michigan area healthy and safe! For more information on our services checkout our website!
