Touch Point Disinfecting Service

NEW: TOUCH POINT DISINFECTING SERVICE BEING OFFERED AT BROOMS OVER BROOME

Brooms Over Broome

Touch Point Disinfecting

Currently, Brooms Over Broome provides residential and commercial basic and thorough cleaning services. According to the CDC, cleaning can be defined as “the removal of germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces. Cleaning does not kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection”. The CDC recommends daily cleaning and disinfecting of high traffic areas. They define disinfecting as “using chemicals 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”. The CDC recommends the following preventative steps for COVID-19: “Clean AND disinfects frequently touched surfaces daily”.

How is it done?

  • If you have booked a basic or thorough cleaning service, this service will be performed first before any disinfecting will occur.
  • Employees will be gloved, and in some cases masked in order to protect themselves from the chemicals.
  • Supervisor will make the CDC recommended bleach solution in a bucket. Clean microfiber rags will be used.
  • We will thoroughly wring out the rag and hit all hard surface, high traffic touch areas in the rooms that you have contracted us to do. This will include tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilet handles, sink/shower knobs, mouse, remotes, chairs, etc…
  • Solution will be changed when necessary.

What to expect:

1. Your home or office may have a smell of bleach when we are done.

2. Peace of mind that your home/office has been cleaned and thoroughly disinfected.

3. Sense of completed social responsibility to help lower the risk of spreading infection.

4. Fully trained staff – most of our employee’s clean full time, so you can expect that they know
what to look for.

Disclaimer: Please do not book this service if you are sensitive to the smell of bleach. While we take the utmost care when using chemicals, we cannot guarantee the bleach is safe for all hard surfaces. If you know of a surface in your home or office that will become damaged because of bleach, please tell us prior to your cleaning.
