Maid 4 Time Professional House Cleaning has always taken its role in contributing to public health seriously. We see ourselves as the first line of defense against acquired illnesses. Our cleaning approach to cleaning is designed to produce the best outcomes for all stakeholders with a special emphasis on the safety and health of our team members and the clients we serve.
Our cleaning teams are trained to meet high standards of cleaning. Every year we take special care to minimize the risks associated with cold and flu season. Keeping your home clean is one of the most important things we can do to prevent the spread of infectious diseases like the flu or the new coronavirus. As part of our normal cleaning procedure we use a number of tools and products to protect the health of your home and family.
For example, we use microfiber wipes and mops. These are tools that remove organic matter from surfaces and hold it until laundering. All used cloths are bagged and laundered daily.
Our cleaning agents are both effective and safe for your family and the environment.
This year, the coronavirus poses an additional challenge we must manage. There is much we still do not know about this virus, but what we do know is that the same measures used to reduce the spread of the cold and flu are the best steps to take to protect ourselves from the coronavirus. In light of health concerns related to coronavirus, We are taking additional measures throughout our business:
Our team members will wear gloves at all times while cleaning your home. In accordance with current CDC recommendations, as a rule we will not be wearing masks.
We have modified our policies during this time to encourage team members to stay at home if they exhibit any symptoms of the virus
Our cleaning teams will be placing a special emphasis on sanitizing and disinfecting high touch surfaces, including:
- Toilet handles, seats and lids
- Handles of cupboards, microwaves, ovens and refrigerators
- Light switches
We train our team members and encourage our clients to use best practices to reduce the chance of spreading infection, including:
- Frequently wash hands with soap and water using a method that removes soil from all parts of the hand, which takes 40 to 60 seconds.
- Carry a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol and use it frequently.
- Keep hands away from mouth, nose and eyes – that is how most people get the virus.
- Cover mouth and nose with the inside of your elbow when coughing or sneezing.
We ask that if any client has a household member who is exhibiting flu like symptoms to please notify our office so we can reschedule cleanings until they are well. There will be no cancellation fees for illness related cancellations.
We are actively monitoring these fast-moving developments and will do whatever is necessary to protect our clients and team members. We will provide additional information as circumstances dictate.
