Disinfection Services & Tips to Stay Healthy

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our team at ServiceMaster of Tacoma is doing all we can to help our community stay healthy. As Washington begins phased reopening, now is the time to create a new cleaning and disinfection process for your business. Incorporate disinfection habits into your daily routine to help keep your patrons and employees safe around the clock. ServiceMaster Restoration Services compiled the following tips from the CDC to help you prevent the spread of illness as much as possible during this uncertain time.


Personal Hygiene

Stay Home: If you feel sick, stay home.

Cover Coughs: Cover coughs and sneezes with your elbow or a tissue instead of your hands.

6 Feet: When around others, keep 6 feet of distance to avoid the spread of illness from person to person contact.

Hand Hygiene: Wash your hands often throughout the day the correct way. Use soap and water for 20 seconds and dry completely. If you don’t have access to soap and water, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.


Preventative Disinfection

Our years of experience with biohazard cleaning allows us to offer COVID-19 disinfections. We are trained to isolate, clean, disinfect and decontaminate each surface following OSHA cleaning protocol. Our team’s training and experience coupled with protective equipment and EPA approved chemicals make us your local disinfection experts. As re-opening starts, schedule a professional disinfection service. We can create a multi-service plan or provide a one-time clean.


Disinfection Maintenance

A professional disinfection service is a great first step, but you can’t stop there. Use the following tips to help keep your facility clean and disinfected between professional services.


High Touch Surfaces

It’s important to wipe down high touch surfaces daily. First, identify what areas are used the most in your space. Usually, these areas include tabletops, door handles, electronics, light switches, sinks and more.


Clean & Disinfect

While they’re both important, there is a difference between cleaning and disinfecting. Cleaning removes dirt, debris and some germs. Disinfecting kills germs. Use the following process when cleaning and disinfecting your business or home.

  • Before you begin, protect your hands with gloves and ventilate your space with an open window and fan.
  • Start by cleaning surfaces, especially high touch, with soap and water.
  • After surfaces are clean, use an EPA-registered disinfectant. Follow the label instructions for safe and effective use.
  • Don’t forget to teach all employees or family members how to use your cleaning supplies correctly.
  • Place cleaning supplies around your space to encourage everyone to wipe down surfaces after use.
