COVID-19 has caused major changes on every level for businesses in every sector. When it comes to office cleaning and sanitizing, the communal-use areas and high-touch points in your office now need to be cleaned and disinfected regularly and frequently. ServiceMaster Clean of Saint John provides professional office cleaning and sanitizing services including telephone sanitizing and cleaning and sanitizing for computer workstations and other high-traffic locations in your office, to help prevent the outbreak and transmission of infectious disease in workplaces.
While some areas of offices such as door handles, elevator buttons, reception areas are more prone to harbour bacteria, it turns out that phones, desks and computer keyboards and accessories are the worst offenders. A study conducted by environmental microbiologist Dr. Charles Gerba at the University of Arizona, found that an office desk can have almost 21,000 germs per square inch and phones more than 25,000 germs per square inch. Compare that to the average office toilet seat that has 49 germs per square inch.1

How can ServiceMaster Clean help?
If you need help maintaining routine cleanliness conditions in your workplace, you may want to call in a professional like ServiceMaster Clean to sanitize and disinfect.
Our expert technicians are trained to clean first to break organic loads and remove gross soiling. Then they sanitize or disinfect as appropriate.
When we do this, we follow the guidelines set in place by the health officials such as WHO and Health Canada. There are many methods of disinfection and you can be assured that your technician is trained to do each in the recommended manner. Our technicians also use appropriate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) with your security and privacy in consideration.
How long will it take to have my carpets cleaned at my business?
The amount of time will be contingent on the size of the area that needs to be cleaned, the soil levels and the processes used, either low moisture, portable extraction, or truck-mount extraction. A trained ServiceMaster Clean carpet technician will then help you choose a program that best meets your needs and schedule.
How often do we need to disinfect?
A key consideration in determining how often you should be disinfecting is based on the traffic level in your facility. As disinfection is for infection prevention, the goal is to help to mitigate surface-to-person transmission of pathogens. If your 10,000 SF office will be occupied by 5 staff and no visitors, you can likely disinfect less frequently than that same office which might house 60 staff and consistent visitors. Additional considerations include how often multiple people may be touching the same surface as well as whether an antimicrobial surface protectant has been applied. At minimum, however, we would recommend daily disinfection of high touch surfaces. If the traffic in your facility is high, we would recommend increasing this frequency to multiple times per day. For example, common elevator lobbies in an office tower should be disinfected multiple times per day, particularly at the entrance level.
