COVID-19 Updates w/ KZ Cleaning
Hello, KZ Cleaning family! If you have made it to this blog post, you are welcomed as family to our team! We have had a lot of new visitors in the past few weeks. If there are any questions that you may have after visiting the site, please don’t hesitate to call or text me. I am available most days unless I’m assisting with what I like to do best and that’s to CLEAN! My direct number is 757-952-7467.
I have decided today to address some of the continued concerns that our clients are having. These are the changes that have been made for the pandemic, and what we are doing to make sure everyone is safe. Our staff has not been around anyone close that has been infected, we have not traveled outside of the state/country in the last few months, and we will not go in to clean if we have any of the listed symptoms to include fever, cough, or shortness of breath. We receive all of the information on how to properly disinfect a facility/home from the CDC.gov website.
We practice all steps on how to clean, & disinfect. As always, if someone at your scheduled location has been exposed to any viruses or contagious illnesses, we ask that you please inform us so that we can reschedule, and make the necessary changes. We do not clean around someone who is sick, to avoid passing it on to others.
The CDC website has instructions on how to clean and disinfect your building or facility if someone is sick. For convenience, I will list it here.
· Close off areas used by the person who is sick.
· Open outside doors and windows to increase air circulation in the area.
· Wait 24 hours before you clean or disinfect. If 24 hours is not feasible, wait as long as possible.
· Clean and disinfect all areas used by the person who is sick, such as offices, bathrooms, common areas, shared electronic equipment like tablets, touch screens, keyboards, remote controls, and ATM machines.
· Vacuum the space if needed. Use vacuum equipped with high-efficiency particular air (HEPA) filter, if available. Do not vacuum a room or space that has people in it.
· Once area has been appropriately disinfected, it can be opened for use.

CDC does not recommend the use of alternative disinfection methods. If you need any disinfectants, we use hospital grade solutions by ZEP, and would be happy to provide some to you. We have extra hand sanitizer as well. The practices for cleaning a home when someone is sick are the same practices that we have adapted in our everyday cleaning. These steps include wearing disposable gloves on each clean. We clean all materials used between the cleanings. We practice routine cleaning of frequently touched surfaces. These areas include doorknobs, light switches, handles, phones, faucets, sinks, etc.
Currently, we are accepting new clients and taking the necessary precautions for this pandemic time. We ask for our residential clients to provide us a key for entry to be away from the home if possible, or for the individual to stay in a different room from the cleaner. Families cannot be present during the time of cleaning. For our commercial clients, we ask that you schedule services after hours so that we can provide the best cleaning experience. This will also assist in keeping our staff safe, as well as yours!
It was important that I go over this information again, and hopefully address any concerns when booking our services. As a reminder, please communicate with us if you are sick so that we can reschedule as quickly as possible. We want to continue to keep everyone safe, and assist with keeping things clean! As always, thank you for your time in reading. Your Peace is Our Business! –Brittany
