Cleaning providers servicing more than one billion square-feet of commercial space have committed to Green Seal’s Guidelines for Safer COVID-19 Cleaning and Disinfection.
What are the guidelines?
The guidelines spell out five best practices that facility, property, and housekeeping managers can employ to reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19 in their workplace or school facility: create a plan; ensure that cleaning personnel are properly trained; maintain sustainability and healthy indoor air; communicate the cleaning and disinfecting plan; and provide safer working conditions.
Why is this important?
In the words of Green Seal CEO Doug Gatlin, “"With too many workplaces turning to excessive disinfection and hazardous chemicals that can compromise people's health, it has never been more urgent to work with cleaning service providers who are independently verified to meet the highest industry standards for safety and performance,"
