Toronto, Ontario, Sept. 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DCS Global, (DCS) has launched its new program to help take the guesswork and risk out of cleaning and sanitization for COVID-19. The CLEAN and SAFE © program provides a detailed set of specifications and standards to guide effective cleaning-for-health during the pandemic.
“This was a major gap in the marketplace,” said Randy Burke President & CEO. “Facility managers are reporting rising costs despite low occupancy rates. Cleaning processes are all over the map, and while some of them are good, your cleaners can also increase the risk of spreading the virus with improper processes or tools. Clean and safe provides a site-specific, risk-based approach to cleaning and sanitizing your facility. We help reduce the risk of surface transmission, using industry best practices and cost-effective protocols.”
Although surface transmission is not thought to be the primary means of contacting the virus, public health authorities including the CDC and Public Health Agency of Canada recommend increased cleaning and sanitization of common touchpoints in offices and schools.
The CLEAN and SAFE © program can be customized for facilities, providing answers to the who, what, where, when and how of cleaning and sanitization. CLEAN and SAFE © has been designed to complement other pandemic programs like GBAC STAR™ accreditation.
The program has been tested in commercial office space and retail facilities and has just been introduced to the education market. The process uses a risk-based approach which incorporates building occupancy, traffic patterns and high-risk populations. The CLEAN and SAFE © program includes:
In addition, DCS provides a number of enhanced services including:
