COVID-19/Coronavirus Protection Services

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.

Commercial properties of all types must take every step possible to protect their customers and employees from unnecessary exposure to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, or coronavirus, which causes COVID-19. BSI provides various cleaning, sanitation, and emergency services to help keep your business open and safe. Building Service Industries offers the following services for COVID-19 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.
