COVID-19 Disinfection & Decontamination
Covid-19 Disinfecting Services for Businesses
ServiceMaster by Bailey is hard at work decontaminating and disinfecting commercial facilities such as office buildings, schools, retail stores and healthcare facilities protect their customers, residents and patients from the COVID-19 virus.
Working with renowned experts in the field of environmental science and in conjunction with our in-house environmental remediation experts, ServiceMaster by Bailey has developed preventative baseline cleaning and decontamination protocols and standard operations practices related to the COVID-19 virus. To best meet our clients’ needs we have developed two areas of operating procedures. One set of protocols addresses any preventative cleaning needs for facilities at a heightened risk of infection or looking to take proactive measures to protect their customers, residents or patrons. The second set of standard operating procedures relates to any facility that believes it has been exposed to the COVID-19 virus or has a confirmed case of the coronavirus. Developing two sets of procedures helps us maximize the effectiveness of the cleaning or decontamination while reducing any unnecessary cost.
Both our preventative cleaning and decontamination protocols involve not only specific requirements for cleaning, but also the disinfectants and decontamination systems to be used. In addition, we utilize strict personal protective equipment (PPE) standards for all employees throughout the entire process. Not only are we currently conducting preventative cleaning and decontamination services for COVID-19 coronavirus across the country, but we have years of past experience handling similar outbreaks and pandemics such as SARS and MERS.
Preventative Cleaning Service
ServiceMaster by Bailey has developed a two-stage preventative cleaning process to provide the most effective cleaning possible. This process involves disinfection of all horizontal surfaces as well as any high-touch points such as door handles, elevator buttons, escalator rails and so on. Next we use a specialized aerosol system to provide the most complete coverage and disinfection of your facility. This two-stage preventative cleaning process provides the most comprehensive preventative cleaning available. We use EPA registered hospital-grade disinfectants throughout the entire process.
Established protocols are only effective if the technicians implementing them are properly trained. This is where ServiceMaster by Bailey preventative cleaning really excels compared to a standard cleaning or janitorial company. We have years of experience in not only biohazard and trauma cleanup, but specifically with previous coronavirus outbreaks such as SARS. All of our technicians are trained on the proper use of the cleaning products and systems as well as the correct use of personal protective equipment (PPE). This is important to not only protect the technicians, but also reduce the chance of cross-contamination or further spread of the virus.
Our project managers can provide pricing for preventative cleaning of your facility. We will walk you through your specific cleaning plan making sure to address any areas of concern. In addition, we can work with you to complete the service during off-hours to limit customer disruption if that is preferred.
As the pandemic continues to grow so does the demand on preventative cleaning and decontamination.

Business Reopening Preparation Cleaning
COVID-19 Reopening Preparation Cleaning
As your business schedules to reopen and return to regular operations, it is important to make sure the necessary precautions are taken. Reentering a facility after COVID-19 requires more than basic cleaning or janitorial services, it requires a company with the experience of handling biohazard cleaning and virus outbreaks.
ServiceMaster by Bailey, in conjunction with our environmental experts have developed comprehensive cleaning protocols for commercial facilities looking to reopen after the COVID-19 crisis. All of our cleaning and disinfection services use hospital-grade, EPA registered products to the exact manufacturer specifications including mixing and dwell time. This is crucial in providing the maximum effectiveness of the disinfecting service.
Our reopening preparation cleaning includes;
Hand cleaning of all horizontal and frequently contacted surfaces such as: door handles, keyboards, desks, seating areas, handrails, copiers and printers, shopping carts, production equipment, touch screens and more.
After hand cleaning all frequently contacted surfaces, ServiceMaster by Bailey will apply an aerosolized disinfection solution to frequently touched porous surfaces such as upholstery, carpet, cubicles, etc. We will then shampoo all entryways, conference rooms, hallways and open area carpet. We also apply an EPA-registered, healthcare-grade disinfectant during this step of the process. Air Movers (high-powered fans) will be left on all cleaned carpet overnight to ensure quick drying. All restrooms within the facility will be disinfected from top to bottom including: walls, floors, toilets, sinks, partitions, counters and all other surfaces within the restrooms.
If your facility has large open areas such as those found in warehouses or manufacturing plants, ServiceMaster by Bailey can mist an aerosolized EPA-registered, healthcare-grade disinfectant into the atmosphere of the area and on horizontal surfaces. If required, we can also hand clean individual pieces of equipment.

Disinfecting Fogger VS Pump Sprayer
ServiceMaster by Bailey uses disinfectant foggers in both our preventative cleaning and decontamination services. There are several reasons this is a better application method over standard pump sprayers other companies typically use. First, foggers are faster than standard pump sprayers. A trained technician can disinfect approximately 15,000 square feet using a fogger. On average, this is 10X faster than a standard pump sprayer. Second, the fogging system actually reduces the particles to a much smaller size which helps provide better coverage and more even distribution of the chemical disinfectant. Lastly, since the particle size is smaller, there may be less of an impact on materials which are sensitive to moisture such as paper or fabric.
When evaluating a service provider to help with your facility disinfection and decontamination, make sure they are using a fogging system rather than a standard pump sprayer. If they provide details into their process such as videos or educational materials pay close attention to how they are applying the disinfectant. If they are using a standard pump sprayer, you are not getting the most effective cleaning and decontamination possible.
