The pandemic has caused significant disruptions in both homes and businesses throughout the country. The good news is that businesses have already begun to open or have an upcoming reopening date. So, the big question is, once your business has been disinfected and is ready to open, what do you do next? There are several precautions you’ll need to take to ensure your employees and customers stay safe. Here are a few tips to help you with what to do after your business has been disinfected.

Period Between Disinfecting and Reopening

If your business has remained closed for at least one week after it was disinfected, to reopen safely, you’ll only need to do your normal routine cleaning. Recent studies have shown that the COVID-19 virus doesn’t survive on surfaces longer than 7 days, so if the interior, including all hard surfaces inside the business, were cleaned and disinfected within this timeframe, there isn’t a risk of contamination. However, suppose you closed for only a day or two while the disinfection was being done. In that case, all touched surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected with a product that is approved by the EPA for effectiveness against COVID-19.

Maintain Safe Practices

Everyone has had to make behavioral changes to limit the spread of the virus. To ensure your business is practicing safety in regards to the pandemic, following disinfection, there are a few things you’ll need to enforce while your business is in operation, including:

Maintain social distancing by encouraging employees and customers to stay 6 feet away from others. If your office space previously shared working areas less than six feet, it’s important to address this. For instance, consider moving working stations or install plastic shields to prevent the risk of person-to-person contamination.

Encourage frequent hand washing and have alcohol-based hand sanitizer available for both employees and customers.

Enforce a policy of wearing masks

Encourage employees and customers to avoid touching their mouth, eyes, and nose, especially after touching a potentially contaminated surface

Encourage employees to stay home if they become sick, or anyone within their household becomes sick

Follow the state, local, and federal guidelines for reopening and requirements for remaining opening.

Routine Cleaning and Disinfecting

One of the most critical things you’ll need to do after your business has been disinfected is to ensure it stays cleans and sanitized. Routine cleaning and regular disinfecting are crucial steps in reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19 and other viruses. All hard surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned with soap and water at the end of each workday, followed by disinfecting with an approved disinfectant. Throughout the day, multiple people frequently touch surfaces such as light switches, desks, water faucets, phones, and desks should be cleaned and disinfected often. If you do not have a dedicated cleaning crew on location, it’s helpful to develop a cleaning schedule for employees.

Once your business has been professionally disinfected and followed the recommended cleaning guidelines, it may be beneficial to schedule full disinfection services by a professional every month. This will help to ensure that your business remains clean and disinfected. It’s also important to choose a disinfectant for daily use that has been approved by the EPA for effective use against COVID, such as Lysol. Make sure there is a supply of gloves and personal protective equipment placed throughout the business.

Our Happy

We found ourselves in need of a cleaning company that could provide consistent, professional, effective cleaning. Jan-Serve fit the bill perfectly. The time between our initial call and having Lisa on-site to provide a written quote for services was 24 hours.

The staff that provide services are friendly, hard-working and communicate well. Many of our clients comment on the consistent cleanliness and appearance of our facility. We are so grateful for the service Jan-Serve provides and would recommend them to anyone.

I just moved into a new home, and was looking for a deep clean. After reading the numerous reviews from Amy’s and other companies, i took a chance with this company, and am very glad that i did. the 2 ladies that came were professional and friendly, and i thought did a very good job. after they were done, they asked me to check the house to make sure that it was to my liking. there were a couple of missed areas, but it was unintentional, and they were happy to go back to that part of the house.
I would for sure use them again.

This company is top notch!! I’ve used this service two times now and each time I was absolutely blown away by the professionalism and the quality of the work done. My bathroom shower needed a deep cleaning. It was pretty bad that we considered gutting it and having it replaced. No need!! It looks brand new now! Price is very reasonable also and quality is 5-star. Highly highly recommend!

We called Safe Spray late Tuesday after finding out one of our warehouse employees in Los Angeles had a family member diagnosed with Covid 19. As a precaution we decided to close and have our distribution center and corporate office sprayed and disinfected. They were super fast at replying to our request, and were able to come out the same day. I checked a few places I found on Google most were over double the price for last minute service, and some just didn’t seem professional. Safe Spray ,came out and did a test , sprayed TWICE!, and did a retest, we were happy to see that their service works. We also signed up for their biweekly service option. Our employees seem very much at ease knowing our facility is safe! Thanks Guys!

I don’t normally take the time to write reviews, but I had to for these guys. They made themselves available at the very last second to come spray our clothing distribution facility in Chatsworth. We tried a few companies and they either didn’t pick up, or were not available for a last second emergency call. We’re a small business and day or two closure just as we have finally opened back up would be a back breaker. Thank you for making time and explaining the process and thank you for the great work, and thank you for getting us back open after our little covid breakout scare. Thank you!

Savingshub Sales

Due to COVID-19 our business has been taking extra precautions to keep employees safe. We gave Safe Spray a call and were given a reasonably priced quote instantly! We will continue to use their services during the pandemic.

The Vegan Joint, Culver City

We have approximately 15 working stations, a conference room, pantry and a couple of small offices. We hired Safe Spray to sanitize our office after someone reported a positive COVID19 case in our building. The guys who came out were very knowledgeable, they absolutely know what they’re doing! They used electrostatic spray (which i never heard of before until i talked to the guys at Safe Spray, apparently it’s best sanitizing equipment nowadays!!). They also used this really cool tester that actually shows you the difference before and after the session for extra peace of mind. As a bonus, they also gave out stickers to stick to our door and certificates that we can display in our office. Their service from start to finish is spot on!

Dynamic Merchant Solutions, Canoga Park

Before reopening, we wanted to take every safety precaution we could to ensure the safety of our employees. The team at Safe Spray were very attentive to our needs and explained every step of their process to us in detail. They ran a pretest upon first arriving which showed the level of bacteria present on surfaces. After all areas were disinfected, they ran the test again to be sure the areas were clean. They even left these cards at each workstation.

We will definitely be using their services often. Thank you Safe Spray.
