As you are no doubt aware, the global COVID-19 pandemic has brought issues of cleanliness and hygiene into public awareness like never before. Thanks to the highly transmissible virus, also known as coronavirus, it’s crucial to practice good handwashing and disinfection. At Ace Diversified Services, we are dedicated to the health and wellbeing of our employees and customers. We have responded to this crisis by increasing our hygienic practices and educating our employees, so you can rest assured that health is our highest priority. Here’s how we’ve upgraded our sanitation services in response to the pandemic.
What is COVID-19?
COVID-19 is a highly contagious virus that is largely spread through coughing or sneezing, or by touching infected surfaces and then your eyes, nose or mouth. While some people can catch the virus and show no symptoms whatsoever, they can still spread the disease if they’re unaware they are a carrier. Most people present flu-like symptoms that can range from mild to severe. For the elderly and immunocompromised, COVID-19 can result in a serious upper respiratory infection that, along with other health complications, can be fatal.
In addition to staying home and isolated whenever possible, experts suggest washing your hands frequently, avoiding touching your face and wearing a fabric face mask if you’re showing symptoms of the disease.
Ace Diversified Services’ solutions during COVID-19
We’ve always used medical grade disinfecting spray to clean our portable restrooms, but the COVID-19 crisis requires more serious solutions:
- Special consideration for CDC guidelines: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cautions anyone who feels sick to stay home from work, and we encourage our employees (and customers) to do the same. We’re also eliminating unnecessary travel and increasing our workspace sanitation efforts.
- Additional PPE for our technicians: Our service technicians already have a dirty job, and we’ve increased their personal protection equipment. In addition to normal sanitation protection gear, we’ve stocked our trucks with disposable gloves and disinfecting products.
- Thorough bathroom cleaning procedures: Finally, we want to keep our bathroom spaces as clean as possible, which is why we’re adding a four-in-one disinfecting agent for high traffic/high touch areas like toilet seats, sink and door handles, paper towel dispensers and more.
Proper handwashing techniques
The CDC and World Health Organization recommend that you thoroughly wash your hands for at least 20 seconds any time you’ve come into contact with outside surfaces or someone who may be ill. If you’re using hand sanitizer, be sure to use a large enough amount to thoroughly coat your hands, and rub it into your skin for at least 30 seconds. Be sure to get in between your fingers and around your wrists and palms to kill all pathogens.
