COVID-19 Preventative Deep Clean

Application

Workplaces that want their empoyees to return to work but need to make sure that their environment poses little risk of infection and that precautions have been taken to safeguard their health would benefit from a COVID-19 preventative deep clean.

Also if you would like to make sure that your family is safe at home and that your house poses little risk of infection and that precautions have been taken to safeguard your families health you should consider a COVID-19 preventative deep clean.

In this situation, Precautionary Sanitations are relevant to workplaces or homes with no suspected existing cases of COVID-19 in low to medium risk environments.

Objective

This level of COVID-19 cleaning is designed to mitigate risk through preventing potential spread of the virus.

This will be supported by ongoing regular cleaning and disinfecting to maintain safety.

Why the need for a combination of services?

Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces is an important way to prevent the spread of coronavirus. When planning a preventative service, we address two key issues:

  • Which surfaces have a higher risk of being contaminated by coronavirus, and
  • Which surfaces have a higher risk of spreading coronavirus to other people.

Surfaces that are frequently touched by multiple hands are called Frequently Touch points (FTPs). The most critical FTPs to clean and disinfect, are those at most risk of being contaminated from the hands that touch them, such as in public areas and washrooms, or at risk of contaminating food, such as in kitchens.

Goals of Cleaning and Disinfection

  • Remove the organic matter that germs live in on the surface; and
  • Remove germs at the same time.
  • Disinfect FTPs frequently and correctly after cleaning; so as to ensure that any viruses remaining on the surface are killed.

THE COVID PREVENTATIVE DEEP CLEAN (CPDC) has been developed as A Low Frequency HIGH IMPACT service designed to kill Viruses. Ongoing hygiene and safety maintenance can be carried out by a regular cleaning service which requires less cleaning time and overall cost than the CPDC. 

This program has been developed following Australian Government Guidelines.

Our systems provide guidelines, safety checks, priorities and areas of most focus in order to minimise the risk of Covid infection in work or home situations.

4.  Cleaning Program   

The Ajax COVID PREVENTATIVE DEEP CLEAN (CPDC) focuses on disinfecting every surface within a designated area and is customised to home or office situations.

The Regular Cleaning service inclusions focus on cleaning and disinfection on frequent touchpoints and common areas, as part of an ongoing risk prevention and hygiene maintenance program. Customised programs can be arranged to add additional surfaces for the regular clean.
