At Your Service Cleaning Group provides additional layer of protection against germs
At Your Service Cleaning Group has announced its latest effort in helping its clients fight harmful germs that can have severe impacts on businesses and community members.
The Clorox Total 360 System offers superior surface coverage in even the hardest-to-reach places including the sides, underside and backside of surfaces, which are typically hot spots for bacteria and viruses.
Over the course of last year's cold and flu season, Florida experienced 175 outbreaks of influenza, the largest number of outbreaks reported in the past seven influenza seasons.
The impact of these outbreaks can take a heavy toll on businesses and often results in productivity and financial losses due to employee absenteeism and building closures. News coverage surrounding outbreaks and investigations can damage company reputations.
The fast-spreading pathogens that often result in such outbreaks present facilities with a difficult challenge as they can survive on surfaces from days to months making daily cleaning and disinfecting a critical line of defense in preventing outbreaks. For example, the influenza virus can survive on hard surfaces from 24 to 48 hours while norovirus can survive for up to seven days.
Knowing this, At Your Service invested in the Clorox Total 360 System to provide its clients with an additional layer of protection against harmful bacteria and viruses including influenza, norovirus and even Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
"Our clients take employee health seriously and we want to be able to provide them with the best protection against the bacteria and viruses that can leave them and their employees out for days or even weeks," says Heather Miller, chief financial officer, At Your Service Cleaning Group.
"In addition to the negative impact on employee health, as CFO I am also aware of the financial effects outbreaks and illness-related absenteeism can have on businesses. With the Clorox system, we can help ensure all surfaces are covered and our clients and their employees are protected physically and financially.
"We are excited to offer our clients this service and provide them with the utmost confidence and peace of mind, especially now that cold and flu season has arrived, which is always a time of concern for our clients."
The system uses patented electrostatic technology to deliver trusted Clorox disinfecting and sanitising solutions to quickly and uniformly coat surfaces. It covers up to 18,000sq.ft per hour meaning At Your Service can now carry out faster comprehensive cleanings with superior surface coverage.
The system works by charging and atomising the disinfecting or sanitising solution, delivering a powerful flow of charged particles that are attracted to surfaces with a force stronger than gravity, allowing the solution to easily reach and uniformly coat surfaces, including hotspots where trigger spray technology might easily miss.
"Our clients range from office buildings to athletic facilities to transit stations," adds Heather. "The system allows us to do our job better and more efficiently across all of these verticals.
"Our goal is to ensure our clients have the healthiest and safest environment possible and the addition of this system helps us achieve that for all of our clients."
