Recently, reports of a new strain of the coronavirus began showing up in news outlets around the world, from London to New York to Hong Kong.
Recent milestones in the United States include North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper declaring a State of Emergency on March 10, 2020. One day later, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic. On March 13, President Donald Trump declared the COVID-19 pandemic a National Emergency. On Saturday, March 14, North Carolina governor Roy Cooper took decisive action issuing Executive Order 117, closing K-12 public schools until at least March 30 and banning gatherings of more than 100 people.
At the local, national, and international levels, immediate and drastic steps are being taken to halt the spread of this new strain of the coronavirus known as COVID-19. On a personal level, what can an individual do to prevent catching or spreading COVID-19? One of the simplest and most important steps is to engage in thorough handwashing with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. The CDC lays out more preventive measures on its website.
With the closing of schools and the cancellation of large gatherings of over 100 people, more strain will be put on the home. Keeping it clean with the added traffic from children who track in all kinds of germs and bacteria from their daily travels will prove to be a massive chore for anyone. Until warm weather arrives, COVID-19 is not the only health threat lurking about.
To prevent the spread of COVID-19, the flu, a cold, or a stomach virus, turn to a residential cleaning service such as MaidPro of Wake Forest. The company’s cleaning specialists have received the best education in tools, technology, and cleaning techniques. MaidPro Triangle’s 49-Point Checklist™ is its signature service that ensures the entire home will be cleaned from top to bottom. The team can customize the cleaning to suit the needs and preferences of the home or business. A deep clean once or twice a week followed up with daily maintenance from the residents during this State of Emergency makes sense and could save lives.
MaidPro Corporate Releases Internal Training Video
To help improve the health of the public and businesses, MaidPro corporate has, in an extraordinary move, released an internal training video that discusses cleaning tools, techniques, and technology that can combat the spread of COVID-19 in a home or business.
The training tool points out that MaidPro professionals take every precaution to prevent bringing unwanted germs with them when they come to a home or business. The MaidPro office is cleaned and disinfected with the same high standards that are employed on the job. They even sanitize their record books so as not to contaminate multiple sites. The pros at MaidPro thoroughly clean their vehicles, including the steering wheel, when they move from one job to another.
The training video explained the measures taken to prevent cross-contamination within the home. Technicians use color-coded towels for different rooms, and they clean their tools so that they do not transfer bathroom germs to kitchen areas. MaidPro cleans, disinfects, and sanitizes. Using the best, time-tested products, they allow ample time for disinfectants to kill viruses and bacteria. The MaidPro crew cleans surfaces with soap and water before applying disinfectants. Dirt absorbs the disinfectant and shields the surface from the cleaner, thus reducing the effectiveness of the product.
MaidPro cleaning specialists also protect themselves as well as clients. They properly use gloves by washing their hands first. Once gloved, they do not touch their head, face, nose, eyes, or mouth with their gloves. When done with the gloves, the workers properly and safely remove the gloves, leaving themselves and the home safe and clean. Technicians will wear goggles to protect their eyes from chemicals or contaminated splashes.
When is the best time to secure the services of a MaidPro residential cleaning specialist?
With COVID-19 posing a looming threat to public health, now is a prime opportunity to secure the services of MaidPro. One of the best times to bring in a cleaning specialist is at the end of a season of illness. Personal reservoirs are sapped after days, weeks, or even months without adequate relief and rest. All areas of the home, from the floors to the ceiling, need attention.
Homeowners can trust MaidPro Triangle to clean their homes and protect their health. Since each home is different, MaidPro Triangle customizes each service to fit each individual home, including both needs and preferences. They believe that everyone should have a clean, safe, and healthy home.
