Disinfecting the Workplace During COVID-19

Cleaning companies have shifted their focus to help keep your employees and customers safe.

By Jim Pytell, Assistant Editor – NEW JERSEY BUSINESS MAGAZINE

The coronavirus pandemic has forced all businesses to adjust their operations in a variety of ways in order to maintain a proper level of health and safety for their employees and customers. Not only does this “new normal” include government mandated mitigation requirements such as wearing face coverings and practicing social distancing, but it also requires business owners to completely reassess the regular cleaning routines at their companies.

While many employees have been directed to work from home for the foreseeable future, in the event that someone needs to visit the office, or for the many businesses that are able to open and serve customers during the pandemic such as outdoor dining at restaurants and shopping at retail stores, for example, giving employees and customers the confidence that your place of business is properly disinfected during this pandemic is vital.

Additionally, cleaning companies themselves have had to significantly beef up, and in some cases shift their focus, to thorough disinfection according to the standards that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have laid out.

A New Threat Requiring a Heightened Focus

Robert Rivadeneira, president and CEO of Moonachie-based York Building Services, says that in the early stages of the pandemic, he started receiving all sorts of questions from customers about whether his professional cleaning service could help businesses properly disinfect their workspace to keep employees and customers safe.

“It really was on the back of our minds,” Rivadeneira says. “A pandemic is something you see in horror movies as a sort of doomsday scenario. While we’ve always cleaned for health, typically our [professional cleaning services] industry has been focused on cleaning for appearance. How shiny can we get the floors? How clean are the windows? That was kind of always the emphasis. You can see the results of freshly buffed floor, but you can’t see a disinfected doorknob. Given the choice, I’ll take the disinfected doorknob because that’s what is going to keep people healthy.”

Rivadeneira says that his company has shifted its focus to helping companies reopen by providing deep cleaning disinfection services, implementing the use of Environmental Protection Agency-approved, hospital-grade disinfectants, as well as focusing on training and helping clients create strategic plans to ensure a safe reopening.

Tony Crisafulli Jr., president of Pompton Plains-based ATRA Janitorial Supply Company, says that his company has been providing cleaning and maintenance supplies, as well as training, to its clients since 1982.

“Two-and-a-half years ago in Kenilworth, we had a workshop day with 275 school districts where we showed them how to better utilize technology, with a big part of it being on disinfection and decontamination, and understanding what you do when you are cleaning

for health,” Crisafulli says. “If the threat level increases within your community or within your school, because of seasonal flu, MRSA or now COVID-19, we have to ramp up our frequencies and evaluate our products and procedures.”

Understand What Disinfectants are Safe and Effective

In addition to physically cleaning and supplying clients with the right cleaning supplies, a big part of what companies like ATRA Janitorial and York Building Services are doing is helping clients navigate the complexities of what disinfectants to use and how to use them safely.

“When this first started, the EPA came out with List N, which listed the products that it deemed would be effective against COVID-19,” Crisafulli continues. “Not all disinfectants are created equal though, and many of them, even though they’re on List N, have human health and environmental risks that need to be researched and evaluated.” Crisafulli says a bioesque botanical disinfectant, which falls under the safest EPA category of level four disinfecting, has been one of his company’s most successful products during the pandemic, for example.

“The fact of the matter is that your disinfecting frequencies are going to significantly increase. You’ll be disinfecting anywhere between four to eight times more than you normally would,” Crisafulli says.

With that increase in use comes other challenges such as unsafe overuse of disinfectants. “Too much of anything can be bad,” Rivadeneira adds. “The last thing we want to do is kill COVID-19 and create a safe environment, but then also destroy the indoor air quality and do potentially irreversible damage to our respiratory system or our skin by using products that aren’t safe,” Crisafulli says.

At the End of the Day, You Need a Plan

Ultimately, in order for businesses to properly disinfect their workplace, they need to develop a plan. The CDC recommends identifying common “touch points,” such as door knobs, light switches, faucets, copy machines and printers, for example, which will need to be cleaned using a two-step process that includes a soap and water clean first, followed by the use of an EPA approved disinfectant. These cleanings will have to occur regularly throughout the day, as Crisafulli mentioned, so again, a plan is key.

To help businesses develop a plan, the New Jersey Business & Industry Association (NJBIA) has created the NJBIA Healthy Business Certification online course, which provides businesses with

best practices to develop policies and procedures for a healthy and safe workplace. It teaches the basics to identify, reduce, eliminate and report potential hazards at one’s workplace. At the completion of the course, participants will submit their plan to be certified. A Healthy Business Certificate will then be issued, along with a safety decal to display at the location of your business.

“NJBIA is providing this certification course because it provides employers the vital tools needed to reopen safely,” says NJBIA President and CEO Michele Siekerka. “Obviously, business

owners want to put the safety of their employees, customers and vendors first and foremost. This course gives them a chance to work with our instructors to develop and follow a deep set of workplace procedures and a documented plan. We’re talking ways to identify, reduce, eliminate and report potential hazards. Once the course is completed, business owners can display a safety decal, which gives anyone who enters the premise peace-of-mind knowing they’re entering a safe workplace.”

Back to school: Lee County’s re-opening plans require more cleaning, outside air in classrooms

Keeping schools clean and safe for students and employees is a heavy lift on an average day, let alone during a pandemic.

That’s why Lee County schools will be ramping up daily cleaning procedures, pumping more outside air into the classrooms and fogging out the virus whenever a positive case is found on campus.

School officials staged a demonstration Thursday at Lehigh Elementary School to show off the new procedures to Southwest Florida journalists. The purpose of this and other district-sponsored events held this week has been to illustrate how face-to-face instruction and campus life might be different when schools re-open on Aug. 31.

Under the new procedures, each school will undergo a routine fogging with a disinfectant solution made by Bioesque® Solutions on a weekly basis. Officials say it is 100% organic and CDC-approved to fight the COVID-19 virus.

Ideally, this will be done between Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, with additional foggings scheduled whenever there is a positive case of COVID-19 tied to the campus.

“In a case positive situation, we would come in with airless sprayers on carts and completely saturate the air and it has a longer dwell time,” said Jimmy Thompson, who is in charge of indoor air quality for the Lee County school system.

During a live demonstration, two photojournalists accompanied Corey Chalkley, a trained independent contractor for the district, into a classroom to film a staged classroom fogging.

The demonstration required all three to suit up with hazmat-style coverings and face gear as Chalkley pointed a handheld machine around the learning space and bathroom area, coating the room’s surfaces with the spray.

The demonstration took about 2 minutes.

The cost associated with each use of the fogging solution will vary based on the size of the space and how accessible it is for cleaning. A small-scale fogging, as was displayed Thursday morning, could cost a “few hundred dollars,” while Thompson said an entire school could cost anywhere from $2,500 to $5,000 or $6,000.

“This is a huge financial burden for the school district as well as school districts across the state,” he said. It is possible the district might shift to a “reactive model” instead of doing weekly site foggings and only using the solution for positive cases, he added.

The district has about 5,000 gallons of the solution on hand, with the ability to get more if needed.

“With all of this, it’s living, breathing and it’s changing,” Thompson said. “We have the bandwidth to change with it, so that’s what we’re shooting for so everyone knows their children and their family members inside the buildings are safe.”

The biggest change students and staff will notice this school year is how often high-touch areas will be cleaned throughout the day, explained Tammy Rodriguez Garcia, the district’s building services supervisor.

This is a task that will require cleaning crews to have more staggered work hours, so they can make constant rounds with disinfectant during the day instead of doing the brunt of the work after kids have left the building.

Seven custodians are on staff at Lehigh Elementary, with five typically working nights. Under the re-opening plan’s cleaning guidelines, it’s likely two of the nighttime workers will be asked to come in earlier in the day to help out.

“Restrooms, entrance areas, where there’s a lot of people normally coming in, and classrooms, those are the main areas that we try to make sure to keep on top of,” said Rodriguez Garcia.

While teachers and other staff will “participate” in some cleanup, she said the heavy lift is being done by custodians.

Another big change for students is they can no longer stop by a water fountain to slurp from the faucet. The district is begging off the traditionally touched parts of the fountains and adding a touch-free bottle water filler on top of all of its 1,365 refrigerated drinking fountains.

One-time-use disposable cups are also part of the district’s re-opening plan.

“You stick the bottle underneath the machine, it has got a sensor and it dispenses the water into the bottle and they go, and then the next child comes up and does the same thing,” said James Flock, director of maintenance for the school system.

The touch-free devices come at a cost of $1,100 a unit and have been a long-held wish list for the schools. If all of the devices aren’t in place by the first day of school, the district will provide bottled water in those areas.

“…Our goal is to get them changed out before school starts,” Flock said.

More fresh air is going to be pumped into classrooms this fall, too.

During the media event, journalists toured one of the school’s air handler rooms to see how the district’s air conditioning system works.

Because of COVID-19 concerns, Thompson said the district is “drastically increasing” the amount of outside air being breathed by students and employees during the day, upgrading the unit’s filters and “bumping up the amount of air exchanges” to up to 20 per hour. 

Filters used to be changed quarterly, but Thompson said that will now occur monthly.

Staff will also be monitoring carbon dioxide levels hourly each day to make sure students are “breathing fresh air,” Thompson said.

“The more fresh air that I can bring in these schools and the more air exchange that I can bring in, the faster I can get whatever’s in this building back out of the building,” Thompson said. “My whole job, my purpose of being in this building, is to keep the students safe and the staff safe and keep them here.”

The routine cleaning, fogging and fresh air upgrades are helping keep students and employees safe during the pandemic, said Thompson, who is a dad of two Lee County school-age children.

“I want them to be safe. I want your kids to be safe. I want everyone here to know that when they drop their kid off, if they choose to do so, that they’re safe here,” he said.

Why Restoration Companies Seek Out Botanical Disinfectants

Restoration companies help businesses and individuals who are in the middle of a wide range of crises. The sudden onslaught of fire, water, or microbial damage inside a property exposes structural components, contents, and the people who live or work there to potentially toxic vapors and residues. During the cleanup and sanitization after disaster restorers choose products that make the process more thorough and efficient.  
 
The last thing wanted are products that add to the hazardous load. Conventional cleaners and disinfectants contain harsh ingredients that can create toxic mixtures if used together. Instead, restoration professionals look for sustainable, naturally-derived botanical disinfectants options that deliver similar cleaning and sanitizing results without safety concerns.  
 
Bioesque® Solutions use botanically-derived ingredients to clean and disinfect. The Thymox® technology powering each Bioesque® product permits the different Solutions to work together harmoniously.

Disaster Remediation Companies Can Choose Botanically Derived Fire Restoration Cleaning Supplies

Technicians working for reputable fire remediation companies study hard to master industry best cleaning practices. Freeing a property from the staining, soiling, and smell of fire damage safely and thoroughly requires skills, experience, and high-quality fire restoration cleaning supplies. Bioesque® Solutions offer the power of plant-based Thymox® technology to clear away sooty residues without harsh chemicals.  
 
The debris left on the surfaces of a fire-damaged property is highly corrosive and toxic to humans and pets. Conventional cleaners often contain additional hazardous substances, increasing the potential for permanent harm to structures and contents traceable both to the fire damage and the restoration products used to clear away soot and charring. Using this type of fire damage cleaner with other restoration products can cause dangerous and irritating chemical reactions that affect building materials and pets and humans in negative ways.  
 
In contrast, Bioesque® Solutions fire restoration cleaning supplies contain natural and sustainable ingredients in each formula, delivering superior cleaning action taking it easy on surfaces and the environment. Patented Thymox® technology uses a derivative of thyme oil to provide the cleaning strength needed for tough smoke and soot straining.  
 
Each Bioesque® Solution is premixed and ready to use immediately and safely around both humans and pets. Bioesque® Heavy Duty Cleaner & Degreaser, Bioesque® Botanical Surface Cleaner & Sealant, and Bioesque® Botanical Carpet Cleaner are designed to work together without concern for negative chemical interactions.  
 
The application is straightforward. Technicians choose from applying with a cloth or sponge, spray bottle, or a broadcast spraying system. The carpet cleaner can be used in steamers or extractors. Bioesque® Solutions leave no sticky residues, and the Botanical Surface Cleaner & Sealant lays down a protective barrier that prevents any stray soot or other debris still airborne or stirred by cleaning from adhering to cleaned surfaces.  
 
One of the most challenging tasks in fire restoration can be to clear the unpleasant odors that linger even after thorough cleaning and disinfection with Bioesque® Botanical Disinfectant Solution. Bioesque® Botanical Odor Neutralizer offers a natural alternative, employing an advanced enzymatic formula that helps eliminate strong smells.  
 
Fire restoration cleaning supplies from Bioesque® Solutions clean as well or better than the harsh options previously available. Customers, whether residential or commercial, appreciate this non-toxic and sustainable choice.

Why Choose Plant Derived Restoration and Remediation Supply Products

Disaster recovery companies often find businesses and individuals relying on their services ask for the use of non-toxic cleaning and disinfectant product options during a mitigation project. Concerns about hazardous fumes, corrosive effects on surfaces, and dangerous chemicals like chlorine and phosphates encourage customers to demand a safer cleaning and sanitizing system.  
 
Bioesque® Solutions restoration and remediation supply products use Thymox® technology to deliver cleaning and disinfecting results that meet the disaster recovery industry’s needs. Appropriate when employed across a broad range of commercial and residential settings, Bioesque® offers a natural approach to the challenges of fire, water, mold, and other damage poses to disaster abatement scenarios.  
 
Employing botanically derived active ingredients in the formulation of high-quality and effective cleaners and disinfectants permits the use of Bioesque® Solutions in environments where people and pets currently work or reside. Each of the products is pre-mixed and ready to use. No rinsing or wiping is necessary allowing disaster recovery crews to move swiftly through spaces affected by water, fire, mold, or other devastation.  
 
Restoration and remediation supply alternatives using environmentally friendly ingredients still must resolve the disastrous conditions as well or better than conventional measures. Avoiding the harshness and toxicity of traditional products is a great goal, but not if the area cleaned and treated is not up to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards.  
 
The integrated suite of Bioesque® Solutions achieved the distinction of EPA registration, demonstrating effective kill rates for bacteria, viruses*, tuberculosis, and fungi**. Thymol, the active ingredient in all Bioesque® disinfectants, derives from thyme oil and is well-suited to environmentally sensitive scenarios. The broad-spectrum disinfectant action supported by the Thymox® technology underlies the basis for the EPA registration, making each of these products suitable and effective for water, fire, and other mitigation jobs.  
 
Look no further than Bioesque® Solutions when searching for products that are tough on grime and kill pathogens without exposing individuals to the hazards of dangerous chemicals and toxic ingredient mixtures. The Bioteaque® restoration and remediation supply line works harmoniously to clean and disinfect after a variety of either commercial or residential disasters.
