A JAN-PRO in Columbia, US, is doing things differently and helping customers access cleaning products.
JAN-PRO normally provides commercial cleaning services to local businesses, but with the coronavirus pandemic underway, it is having to make some changes. With lots of offices being closed and residents not being able to get the disinfectants they need in stores, JAN-PRO is revisiting its business model.
According to Daphne Freeman, Director of Business Operations, JAN-PRO started getting inundated with phone calls from locals in Columbia asking for cleaning products. So, it contacted its supplier and double-checked they had enough products and then agreed to sell to the general public.
“It needs to be a hospital-grade disinfectant. That way, you are ensured that the quality of product is there and it is going to kill just about everything there is to kill that’s not good for us as humans. A lot of people want to get bleach and think that bleach is going to kill it, but bleach does so much harm to not only people, but to the surfaces that it touches.”
To help slow the spread of coronavirus, it’s important to clean the house regularly.
“Right now, I would recommend about every day, because when we leave our house, we don’t know what we’re bringing back in. So, you want to – when you return to your home, let’s follow the safety precautions. Change your clothes, wash your hands, then wipe down all of your surfaces so that you know that you have killed anything that you’ve brought in. All door handles, light switches – those are things that everyone touches. So, you want to make sure that on a consistent basis someone is wiping those areas down,”
She also highlights the importance of disinfecting even more regularly when someone in the house is ill.
