Office cleaning has become a hot topic in the age of the COVID-19 pandemic. And while some companies have found that remote work-from-home solutions might be an answer, other businesses simply cannot do this. Manufacturers, restaurants, public facilities, entertainment venues, independent shops and retailers and others simply need to be open and staffed to be able to remain viable.
Klean Com is the one office cleaning company that is uniquely prepared during this complicated period to clean and disinfect your business so that it meets Centers for Disease Control standards. Klean Com has years of experience in cleaning spaces to minimize the presence of biological contaminants and we are expanding these best practices to help our clients maintain a healthy and productive work environment in these difficult times.

Our office cleaning and decontamination procedures include cleaning and disinfecting of all surfaces and objects in the workspace including, floors, porous and non-porous surfaces, doors, office supplies, desks and personal spaces, bathrooms, equipment, tools and entrance ways.

What To Do If Someone at Your Company or Organization Has COVID-19?
If someone at your company or operation comes down with COVID-19, these are the following steps that the CDC recommends need to be taken.
- Close off areas used by the person who is sick.
- Companies do not necessarily need to close operations, if they can close off affected areas.
- Open outside doors and windows to increase air circulation in the area.
- Wait 24 hours before you clean or disinfect. If 24 hours is not feasible, wait as long as possible.
- Clean and disinfect all areas used by the person who is sick, such as offices, bathrooms, common areas, shared electronic equipment like tablets, touch screens, keyboards, remote controls, and ATM machines.
- Vacuum the space if needed. Use a vacuum equipped with high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter, if available.
- Do not vacuum a room or space that has people in it. Wait until the room or space is empty to vacuum, such as at night, for common spaces, or during the day for private rooms.
- Wear disposable gloves to clean and disinfect. For soft (porous) surfaces such as carpeted floors or rugs, clean the surface with detergents or cleaners appropriate for use on these surfaces, according to the textile’s label. After cleaning, disinfect with an appropriate EPA-registered disinfectant on List N: Disinfectants for use against SARS-CoV-2external icon. Soft and porous materials, like carpet, are generally not as easy to disinfect as hard and non-porous surfaces. EPA has listed a limited number of products approved for disinfection for use on soft and porous materials on List N. Follow the disinfectant manufacturer’s safety instructions (such as wearing gloves and ensuring adequate ventilation), concentration level, application method and contact time. Allow sufficient drying time if vacuum is not intended for wet surfaces.
- Temporarily turn off in-room, window-mounted, or on-wall recirculation HVAC to avoid contamination of the HVAC units.
- Do NOT deactivate central HVAC systems. These systems tend to provide better filtration capabilities and introduce outdoor air into the areas that they serve.
- Consider temporarily turning off room fans and the central HVAC system that services the room or space, so that particles that escape from vacuuming will not circulate throughout the facility.
- Once area has been appropriately disinfected, it can be opened for use.
- Workers without close contact with the person who is sick can return to work immediately after disinfection.
- If more than 7 days since the person who is sick visited or used the facility, additional cleaning and disinfection is not necessary.
- Continue routing cleaning and disinfection. This includes everyday practices that businesses and communities normally use to maintain a healthy environment.
