LARCHMONT, N.Y. - Sept. 7, 2020 - PRLog -- Schools, both at the elementary and university levels, gyms and other facilities are scheduled to open for the first time in months this week in Westchester County. As a society we are now pressed to accept our "new normal." In an effort to keep up with the ever present changing times, the principal members of Clean n' Handy, the full-service 'green' Commercial Cleaning & Handyman Services company based in Larchmont, New York, have taken the extra steps to further educate themselves by taking the CDC's Cleaning/Disinfecting for COVID-19 & Other Infectious Diseases course. The course was designed to help employees perform the important job of maintaining buildings effectively during this COVID-19 crisis.

"There is pressure to return to our "new normal," says Jillian Ibelli, Co-Owner of Clean n' Handy. "It is a fact that in order for businesses to be operational they need to partake in modifications that will follow governmental health and safety regulations."

"We at Clean n Handy want business's to be successful," adds Mrs. Ibelli, "therefore our company is providing important tips for reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19 by implementing effective cleaning and disinfecting strategies."

Disinfecting protocols on commonly used surfaces:

·        Most disinfecting wipes can kill up to 99.9% of germs. Never reuse wipes to wipe down multiple surfaces as this can transfer germs. Do not dry the surface after using the disinfectant wipe as the area will need to stay wet for the amount of time listed on the label. This step is important as the contact time is what is required to kill the germs.

·        If EPA approved products cannot be found, consider making a bleach solution mix consisting of 1/3 cup of bleach per gallon of water; leave solution on for at least a minute,  Make only enough diluted bleach solution to last a 24 hour period, as it may not be effective after that time period. Alcohol solutions with at least 70% alcohol can also be used for cleaning.

·        Set up sanitation stations throughout the facility for staff and guests consisting of hand sanitizer, gloves and antibacterial wipes.

·        Display a visible cleaning schedule sheet with employee signatures to verify cleaning has been completed.

·        Consider employing an outside cleaning/janitorial company to assist with necessary cleaning measures.

It is up to all of us to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 and proper sanitation schedules are key.
