COVID-19/Coronavirus Protection Services

Building Service Industries is proud to be in business for over 20 years; with our knowledge and experience, we can protect the essential businesses by offering COVID-19/Coronavirus Protection Services.  If you’re an essential business still operating at this time, keeping your workplace safe and free from infection is likely a primary concern. This is true both to prevent illness in the facility and to preserve peace of mind for all occupants, so they know all steps are being taken to keep them safe.  We strongly recommend professionally disinfecting your facility as a way to keep your employees and occupants safe and to keep essential personnel working in this time of crisis.  Professional sanitizing can reach all corners of the facility. By applying disinfectant using a combination of techniques—including fogging, surface wiping, and spraying—areas of the building are addressed that would otherwise be missed by ordinary cleaning.

Why should you hire a professional cleaning company?

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) is most commonly passed from person to person. However, scientists at the National Institute of Health (NIH) have now determined that the virus can stay active on some surfaces for up to 3 days. This means general cleaning will help, but it won’t eliminate germs to stop it from spreading.

Commercial office cleaning with disinfectants should include a deep cleaning of all areas of the office with a special focus on high-touch areas and common areas. Commercial cleaning services should separate disinfecting and sanitizing processes.

Healthy Schools and Clean Floors

Healthy Schools and Clean Floors

If you’re in charge of maintaining clean and healthy schools, restrooms and cafeterias are probably your first area of focus. What many people don’t realize is that clean floors are a crucial part of keeping schools clean, and not just for the sake of appearances. Dirty floors can harbor germs that might cause disease or allergic reactions in a great number of students. If the school has been sitting unused all summer, you can be sure that dust, dirt, and other contaminants have made a home on every surface.

Deep cleaning can reduce allergens and bacteria, dust, dirt, mold, and pollen. It also sets the stage for regularly scheduled sanitizing to help stop the spread of COVID-19, TB, staph infections, meningitis, and other contagious conditions. Being vigilant should be a top priority, and it all starts before school starts.

Healthier Restroom Floors

Restrooms are one of the largest health hazards.  In a restroom, it isn’t the dirt you see, it’s the bacteria that you don’t see. The germs take hold in this rich environment and spread to anyone placing a purse or backpack on the floor. Floor-to-ceiling attention is needed to ensure all surfaces are sanitized. Best practices include high-pressure cleaning and disinfection of walls, partitions, floors, urinals, toilets, and sinks. This is a good time for grout repairs too. Keeping restroom floors clean is a necessary step for creating healthy schools. Use a cleaning system that employs tools to scrub the grout and a vacuum that removes the germs and all the moisture on the floor. Start the year off right with pristine bathrooms, and it will be easier to keep up with regular maintenance throughout the year.

Healthier Carpeted Floors

Carpets often contain dirt, mold, and pollutants that love to hide in carpets. In K-5 schools it is especially needed to keep the floors clean for crawling, sprawling, and sitting kids. Not only are dirty carpets unsightly, but they can negatively affect indoor air quality. Studies have shown that properly cleaned carpets help reduce asthma and allergy symptoms. Back-to-school cleaning should include carpet extraction and sanitization. This is also the time to strip and wax hallways and classroom floors. Shiny floors make a great impression, and well-maintained floors last longer.

Healthier Tile Floors

Tile floors are often found in Gyms, weight rooms, locker rooms. Durable and easy to mop, the tile floor is traditionally cleaned after school by the custodial staff. Mopping might make the floor look like it’s clean, but it’s spreading the dirt and germs smoothly over the floor’s surface. These floors can be breeding grounds for TB, staph, and other infectious organisms. Start now with a deep cleaning and sanitization of all surfaces and equipment, and then keep ahead of problems with routine cleaning. Students should also be required to wear footwear while in the gym and flip-flops in locker rooms. Remind them to not share personal equipment and to regularly wash their athletic clothes. With football season approaching, plan to add a weekly misting system to your cleaning procedures, because such systems can kill 99.99% of bacteria.  A cleaning system that dispenses cleaning solution before vacuuming the moisture and dirt away is the best option for a clean and healthy tile floor.

Healthier Windows

Windows and lighting contribute to good learning. Windows should be washed inside and out to bring in the most natural daylight. Light fixtures need detailed cleaning also.  Replacing old lightbulbs is one of the fastest ways to freshen up your classrooms and hallways. Students and teachers respond well to the crisp white light emitted by new bulbs versus the dimmer, yellow-brown color of older bulbs. While new lights will give your interior a boost it will also show any hidden dirt lurking in corners. Make sure that your cleaning regime tackles overlooked spots, display hardware, and even the parts that no one sees, like the desks and near the cubbies.

Routine cleaning and disinfecting is key to maintaining a safe environment for faculty, students, and staff.

Cleaning removes dirt and most germs and is usually done with soap and water.  Disinfecting kills most germs, depending on the type of chemical, and only when the chemical product is used as directed on the label.
Routine cleaning and disinfecting should be done at least once a day (or more, depending on use patterns) on high touch point surfaces and objects such as:

  • Face shield
  • Doorknobs and handles
  • Stair rails
  • Classroom desks and chairs
  • Lunchroom tables and chairs
  • Countertops
  • Handrails
  • Light switches
  • Handles on equipment (e.g., athletic equipment)
  • Push-buttons on vending machines and elevators
  • Shared toys
  • Shared remote controls
  • Shared telephones
  • Shared desktops
  • Shared computer keyboards and mice
  • Bus seats and handrails
  • Note: Computer keyboards are difficult to clean. Shared computers should have signs posted instructing proper hand hygiene before and after using them to minimize disease transmission. To facilitate cleaning, consider using covers that protect the keys but enable the use of the keys.

We Clean for Health, and in the process create a clean appearance! Our focus as a cleaning company is to create healthy offices, schools, meeting rooms, etc.and to make sure the environment the following day does not promote illness in any way. Regular disinfecting kills bacteria, viruses, and pathogens which is important for all to understand.  Here are the CDC Recommended Guidelines for How to Clean and Disinfect Schools.

The industries we service include professional, industrial, financial, health care, educational, retail, and restaurants. Get in touch with Building Service Industries today!

Commercial Hard Surface Cleaning

Commercial Hard Surface Cleaning

Not only will this impress your clients, customers, or tenants, but it can also prevent the spread of disease, reduce the possibility of accidents, and protect your floors longterm. BSI provides floor care services for a variety of floor types and a variety of industries. Whether you own an apartment complex or a retail location, we will make sure your floors shine and are spotless with routine waxing, buffing, and vacuuming. And as one of our stand-alone services, we recommend pairing this service with our window cleaning or carpet cleaning to get even more of your building’s cleaning at an affordable rate. We provide floor care for the following surfaces.

Tile and Grout Cleaning

BSI cleans bathrooms, kitchens, lobby areas, and other rooms that have tile and grout. By utilizing our high-pressure cleaning system, BSI cleans the grout so that it looks as good as the first day they were installed.  Tile and grout surface gradually develop a build-up of dirt, grime, and soil that then harden and become extremely resistant to removal. Regular cleaning and mopping are no match for these hard to clean surfaces. Besides, mold can eventually develop on tiles and grout and may pose a health hazard.  Our cleaning crew disinfects and removes dirt and bacteria from showers, tubs, floors, countertops, and all surfaces where tiles and grout have become both unsightly and unsanitary.  Scrubbing won’t do the trick once dirt and germs have settled into the grout. Choose the cleaning experts to rid your home or office of the most difficult and potentially hazardous tile and grout residue; give Building Service Industries a call today.

Terrazzo Floor Cleaning

Terrazzo is a unique surface, primarily found as flooring, that traditionally contains marble chips of different sizes and colors held together with a cement base or, in newer applications, with a resin or epoxy base.  Over time your Terrazzo floor may become dull from a build-up of dirt or from waxing (which should never be done) and require professional cleaning. BSI implements steps in cleaning and restoring Terrazzo flooring, which includes:

  • Vacuuming the floor to remove any surface dirt, pet hair, or other debris.
  • Grinding the floor- A machine is used that disperses water and grinds the floor by first using a rough grit, then medium grit, and then fine grit to clean and smooth the floor. This requires going over the floor three times removing the dirty water and reapplying fresh water each time the grit is changed.
  • All holes or cracks in your flooring are patched to match the original floor. Once the mortar is dry a grinder is used to smooth the patched area to match the smoothness of the rest of the floor.
  • Floors are then polished to a high shine.
  • A sealant is applied that is made especially for the Terrazzo floor to help protect it from damage.

Marble Cleaning

Marble is a beautiful natural material that is available in many colors and patterns and may be installed in various locations; from floors to showers and countertops.  Building Service Industries is available to restore all of your stone to its natural beauty and help you care for your stone properly to maximize its full potential and ensure the longevity of the finished material.  Different marbles require different attention; from basic cleaning and sealing to a full restoration, we will help you determine what is best for your stone and service you need.

Your marble may need refinishing; is it too dull or too shiny? If you have a new floor with some tiles that look more glossy than others – let us even out the finish for you. BSI can deliver a beautifully restored or changed marble finish.  Marble floors also have dull areas associated with wear patterns, scratches, etches, or spots that need honing to restore it.  With our marble honing services, our expert technicians can achieve a honed or soft matte finish that is warm and inviting.  Once the honing process is complete to overcome an uneven finish, dull spots, or etches we polish the marble.  Using the appropriate polishing powders to restore the finish the way you would like it to look: matte, semi-gloss, or gloss finish.

Do you have chipped marble tiles, any cracks in your floor, or a broken tile? Before you replace the marble, you may want to consider first repairing it. BSI can fill holes in marble, fix marble cracks and chips, blending the repair site with the surrounding area, and honing and polishing it to match the finish on the rest of your marble floor, countertop, or other stone surfaces.  If a replacement tile is needed because it is beyond repair then we will remove the affected tile without damaging the surrounding ones, reinstall the new tile, level the installed tile with the surrounding area, then match the finish as closely as possible.

The marble cleaning processes vary based on the surface condition and type of dirt or oil being removed. Marble is easier to keep clean with periodic professional deep cleaning services, using non-acidic, highly-effective cleaning solutions. Once your marble floors, showers, tub surrounds, walls, and other marble surfaces are cleaned and restored, we highly recommend you have us seal them to enhance their stain resistance. All stones (unless resined) are naturally porous. If left unsealed, there’s always a risk of spilling a colored or reactive liquid, discoloring your stone. While most stains can be removed, marble stain removal can be a time consuming, expensive, and often frustrating process. Sealing represents an inexpensive, preventative measure against marble stain damage.

Cleaning and Disinfecting

Cleaning and Disinfecting for COVID-19

Cleaning and Disinfecting Your Household

There is much to learn about the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Based on what is currently known about COVID-19, regular cleaning and disinfecting of households and high traffic areas limit the survival of the virus in the environment.  The CDC offers a description of terms and the following guidelines for household cleaning.

These guidelines are focused on household settings and are meant for the general public.

  • Cleaning refers to the removal of germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces. It does not kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.
  • Disinfecting refers to using chemicals, for example, EPA-registered disinfectants, to kill germs on surfaces. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of spreading infection.

Everyone’s home is a little different, so think about the surfaces you interact with most. Now that you know what you’re cleaning, here’s how you should do it.

First Clean, Then Disinfect: Clean the surfaces by removing any contaminants, dust, or debris. You can do this by wiping them with soapy water (or a cleaning spray) and a hand towel.  Then apply a surface-appropriate disinfectant. The quickest and easiest way to do this is with disinfecting wipes or disinfectant spray.

It is highly recommended before starting you follow all safety protocols, read and follow the directions on the label to ensure safe and effective use.  Decide also what you will be cleaning; is it a hard (non-porous) surface or a soft (porous) surface, this factor alone will determine how cleaning and disinfecting the area will be handled.

Cleaning and Disinfecting Safety Protocols

  1. Wear skin protection and consider eye protection for potential splash hazards
  2. Ensure adequate ventilation
  3. Use no more than the amount recommended on the label
  4. Use water at room temperature for dilution (unless stated otherwise on the label)
  5. Avoid mixing chemical products
  6. Label diluted cleaning solutions
  7. Store and use chemicals out of the reach of children and pets

Now you can start disinfecting the area; you want to go beyond light cleaning. When cleaning your house ensure you’re using strong cleaning products to disinfect the high-touch areas in your home.  If it is touched throughout the day, clean it! Once a day may not be enough because no one is sure yet how long these germs can live on specific surfaces. You should sanitize these areas several times each day.

Check the label also to see the manufacture’s guidelines for how long to leave the liquid on the surface to kill the germs before wiping clean.  Typically, when using any type of disinfectant, it is important to wait at least 30 seconds to several minutes (check the label for timing) for the product to effectively kill a germ or virus.

Hard (non-porous) Surfaces

When cleaning and disinfecting any area with chemicals ensure you protect your skin by wearing disposable gloves. It is recommended that the gloves be discarded after each cleaning or use. If you are using reusable gloves then, those gloves should be dedicated to cleaning and disinfection of surfaces for COVID-19 and should not be used for other cleaning purposes. Once you have removed the gloves and completed cleaning wash hands immediately after gloves are removed.

Soft (porous) Surfaces
Cleaning soft (porous) surfaces such as carpeted floor, rugs, and drapes, remove visible contamination if present and clean with appropriate cleaners indicated for use on these surfaces. If possible, launder items using the warmest appropriate water setting for the items and dry items completely.

Cleaning and Disinfecting Your Phone

Coronavirus germs can live on our phones, which is why we need to be cleaning them now more than ever.  Anyone with an iPhone, Apple recommends using a 70 percent isopropyl alcohol wipe or Clorox Disinfecting Wipes to gently wipe the exterior surfaces of your iPhone. Do not use bleach. Samsung has not commented on whether wipes are a good way to clean your phone.  Don’t forget the phone case as this needs to be cleaned with a disinfecting wipe also.

Should You Disinfect Packages and Mail?

Yes, lightly!  According to the USPS, mail and packages are relatively low-risk for transmitting the novel coronavirus. Researchers have found that it can live on cardboard for around 24 hours, so giving packages a quick cleaning with a disinfecting wipe is a great idea.

Does Cleaning Your Clothes Remove Germs?

Yes, just by simply washing your clothes with regular laundry soap and drying it at slightly higher temperatures than you might have otherwise is all you have to do to disinfect your clothes.  Be sure to disinfect surfaces the dirty laundry comes in contact with, including the hamper and your hands.  This is especially important if you have a sick person in the house.  In addition, clean and disinfect the hamper like you would any other surface, and wash your hands thoroughly after handling dirty laundry from someone who is ill. The CDC recommends using a liner in your hamper to help.

Keep Washing Your Hands

It’s been repeated countless times, but that’s because it’s true: no matter what you do, the best way to lower your risk of contracting COVID-19 or passing it to someone else is to wash your hands.  The CDC recommends a vigorous 20-second scrub with soap and water that extends beyond the hands to the wrists, between the fingers, and under the fingernails.

touchpoint cleaning

Touchpoint Cleaning

What is Touchpoint Cleaning?

TouchPoint Cleaning is a system of cleaning that focuses on high-traffic areas specifically “touchpoints”. A few examples of touchpoints are; light switches, tv remotes, computer keyboards, doorknobs, elevator buttons. These are considered high-risk areas to come in contact with the disease, viruses, and germs.  Touchpoints are the most important areas to address when cleaning.

According to the CDC, “High-touch surfaces are surfaces that are handled frequently throughout the day by numerous people.” Everyone’s home and office are a little different, so the surfaces we touch the most will vary depending on habits and routines. Here are home and office cleaning tips straight from the CDC. Some additional examples of high-touch surfaces include:

  • Doorknobs
  • Sink faucets and knobs
  • Phones
  • Table surfaces
  • Dining chairs (seat, back and arms)
  • Kitchen counters
  • Bathroom counters
  • Toilets (seat and handle)
  • TV remote controls
  • Toys

A member of the janitorial staff, such as a day porter, will be able to go around your facility, disinfecting these touchpoints throughout the day. Regular disinfection will be able to reduce the spread of illnesses to anyone using your restroom, kitchen, or other common areas.

How Is BSI – Building Service Industries Different?

BSI is a full-service professional cleaning company that focuses on quality. Our touchpoint disinfection service is not simply wiping down a surface with a microfiber cloth. We follow the correct rules and directions by TouchPoint Cleaning best practices. Our staff is fully trained on how to disinfect touch point areas. When disinfecting we use the proper tools; masks, gloves, shoe covers, mops, and microfiber towels. We only use CDC recommended and EPA registered broad-spectrum cleaning solutions that are considered a low hazard and don’t have a harsh chemical smell.

How to Make your Office Safer for Everyone During COVID-19

While the spread of the virus might feel unavoidable, but good cleaning and disinfection routines can greatly reduce or eliminate the risk of a viral count of COVID-19 on surfaces and objects in the office. As employers, it’s our responsibility to maintain a clean environment and to ensure every person feels safe.

The CDC has provided detailed instructions on how to clean and disinfect workspaces, as well as a list of EPA-Approved disinfectants known to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19). While the CDC’s interim guidance should be read, understood, and followed closely, here are a few key points you should know before you begin:

  • Use disposable gloves gowns, a mask (like a cloth face covering) for cleaning and disinfection.
  • Carefully remove and throw them away immediately after disinfection and trash disposal.
  • Always clean before beginning disinfection.
  • Cleaning with a detergent or soap and water solution removes particles that can carry the risk of COVID-19 on surfaces. This reduces the viral load before disinfection begins, which helps the disinfectant to be more effective in killing the remaining virus.
