In just three months, COVID-19 has dramatically transformed our country and the world around us. As businesses begin to reopen, we all realize that things are not going back to “normal” any time soon.

In this new environment, businesses and customers don’t just want to see a clean space, they want assurances that their facilities are being disinfected with products and cleaning protocols approved by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in order to keep them safe.

Colonial Commercial Cleaning has provided superior janitorial services to businesses in the Washington D.C. region for more than a decade. In that time, our commitment to health, safety and quality has prepared Colonial to provide quality cleaning services to its customers during this challenging time.

We want you to know that Colonial is closely following and monitoring the CDC guidelines for fighting COVID-19 in the workplace. We use CDC-approved products to kill this aggressive virus and our specialty cleaning crews are trained on the appropriate cleaning and disinfecting protocols to keep your environment safe.

Deep Clean Your Facility Before You Reopen

Now more than ever before, employees and customers alike want the reassurance that you are doing everything you can to reduce the spread of germs in the workplace.

At Colonial, we recommend a deep cleaning service to remove dirt and thoroughly sanitize and disinfect your facility before you fully reopen your facility. In doing these cleanings, we are closely following the guidelines provided by the CDC to fight COVID-19.

We use high-quality, EPA-certified products that are on the approved CDC disinfectants list to fight against SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus that causes the disease COVID-19. We also protect our employees and clients by requiring our staff to wear personal protective equipment.  They are required to wear disposable masks, gloves, gowns and shoe coverings to reduce the spread of germs and viruses like COVID-19.

Our service teams are trained to follow the step-by-step guidelines outlined by the CDC to clean and disinfect “high touch” surfaces such as handrails, doorknobs, elevator buttons, faucets, toilets, bathroom and kitchen countertops, towel dispensers, buttons and switches, common surfaces and floors.

We also use color coded microfiber cloths and no-dip flat mops are used to reduce the chance of cross contamination between the surfaces and floors of your facility. All materials are soaked in disinfectant and bleach to keep them clean.

To further prevent contamination and ensure the removal of unwanted germs and allergens, we only use a HEPA/ULPA vacuum system. These vacuum backpacks trap airborne allergens during the vacuuming process. We vacuum upholstered furniture and all carpeted floor edges, under desks, and behind doors.

And finally, we use 3M chemical dispensing systems to ensure each product used will result in a safe and effective deep clean every time and we follow all the best practice cleaning protocols and guidelines set by OSHA, CDC and EPA.

After we are done cleaning, we soak all cleaning cloths and mops in disinfectant or bleach.

Let’s All Do Our Part

If you haven’t had your facility deep cleaned recently, we strongly recommend that you get it done immediately to help fight the spread of COVID-19. Even if your business is currently closed, it is important to properly maintain it during this critical time.
