Coronavirus (COVID-19) has swiftly spread and has infected thousands throughout the world. In the United States there are quickly changing reports of confirmed cases, and the concern is growing. Janitronics goal is to provide a level of competence and professionalism in managing and mitigating your risk. Advanced and systematic cleaning and sanitizing practices are targeted at protecting human health far beyond standard cleaning applications. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), cleaning and sanitizing practices are a part of a very broad spectrum in the prevention of infectious agents from propagating, but we are able to provide clarity on what can be done to help.

 

COVID-19 is spread primarily through person-to person contact. 

Proximity to others (6-feet) leads to increased risk of contracting the virus. Respiratory droplets are produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. By following Sneeze and Cough Precaution, this can be mitigated. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people  who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. 

 

Spreading from contact with infected surfaces or objects. 

When an infected person touches an object, typically a light switch, door handle, telephone, etc. the chances of contaminating that surface are increased and can be passed from one person to another through surface contact. This chain of infection can be easily broken through basic intervention methods such as hand hygiene and avoiding touching the face (eyes, nose, mouth). 

 

How long does the coronavirus remain infectious?

Evidence from CDC and other healthcare professionals state the virus can survive up to nine days. Precautions of up to 14 days for quarantine and self-isolation are recommended practices.

 

Environmental Infection Control

By simply wiping a surface with a disinfectant does not necessarily do anything for the elimination of microbes. The surface must remain wet up to 10 minutes for the disinfection solution to kill the bacteria and viruses that are living on the surface. For large facilities or surface areas- the use of alternative products and processes might be necessary and Janitronics has the tools to aid in that. 

 


 

We recognize that maintaining a facility is not a one size fits all approach, which is why we are offering several options for facility touch point cleaning. Each program is specifically designed to fit different needs based on application and choice of implementation.

 

Through increased levels of clean and perception to ongoing and preventative measures, Janitronics has the right solution to fit the needs of your facility. Using our current cleaning program as a foundation, we add our additional service and/or product without overextending valuable resources, while maintaining high levels of quality.

Self-Cleaning Surfaces

 

Unlike disinfection solutions, self-cleaning re-clean themselves each time the surface is touched providing you continuous coverage long after cleaning stop, 24/7. 

The Process

 

  1. Apply on any facility touchpoint
  2. Touch the surface
  3. Photocataylic Oxidation occurs when light (UV, Flourescent, and Sunlight) hits the surface
