Covid-19 is like a houseguest who showed up and never left. For the last two years, commercial cleaning companies have played a key role in slowing the spread of the virus in local workplaces.
But long before the pandemic, these companies focused more on health than aesthetics, according to Dalton Self, Vice President of Jani-King of Augusta, and four other cities, including Savannah and Macon.
According to its website, Jani-King uses hospital-grade disinfectant sprays to kill a variety of germs, including those that cause covid infections. The company, which has more than 9,000 franchisees worldwide, cleans a variety of buildings, including offices, gyms, and manufacturing plants.
“Client expectations changed from cleaning to disinfecting in March 2020,” Self said. “This expectation has continued today for a majority of my clients.”
Like Self, Connor Waldron, accounting representative and marketing associate for Jan-Pro Cleaning & Disinfecting of Northeast Georgia-Aiken said the company had emphasized protecting the health of its clients for many years before covid.
Waldron said Jan-Pro, which has more than 8,000 franchises in nine countries, developed a system called EnviroShield that uses a disinfectant designed to kill 99.9 percent of viruses and bacteria.
“Our brand navigated the pandemic by establishing stronger relationships with our suppliers and developing new training programs for our certified franchisees so front-line cleaning professionals had a firm foundation when assisting in reopening businesses or handling an outbreak,” he said.
