Are Your Cleaners Ready To Handle A Pandemic?

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, everyone scrambled to keep their families, customers, and community members safe and healthy. Very quickly, cleaning technicians became essential workers with some of the most important roles on the frontline of the deadly virus. But now with the ultimate responsibility, were cleaners in America ready? Since our inception, C.M. Cleaning Company has made continuous learning, training, and certification a priority. From building safety courses to cross contamination prevention, managers and cleaners at C.M. alike were confident and ready to do their part. After all, our client-focused cleaning programs have always been our primary focus in keeping our community safe and healthy. 

Classroom cleaning workers

Without proper training, one runs the risk of putting themselves or others in exposure to illness. This is why all our dedicated cleaning staff, full and part time, are trained in accordance with OSHA standard guidelines. This safety training is primarily done through quarterly interactive training courses which cover bloodborne pathogens, sexual harassment, personal protective equipment, and hazardous materials safety. Our comprehensive cleaning training program consists of both a customized presentation on C.M. Cleaning’s specific procedures relating to restroom cleaning, interior building cleaning, and equipment maintenance along with a 2-day hands on session with an Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) certified management staff or any of our special service technicians. 

Along with our baseline training program, the Global BioRisk Advisory Council (GBAC), provides C.M. Cleaning technicians certification and training on specifically how to handle disinfecting and sanitizing specific to COVID-19/Coronavirus. Through this training, all of our employees are professionals in properly cleaning and disinfecting areas that have been potentially exposed to COVID-19. Certifying our cleaners and technicians is crucial to maintaining a healthy workplace. Through this additional and COVID-specific training course, our clients will be able to trust the quality of C.M. Cleaning’s technicians, janitorial programs, and special services, bringing peace of mind to your facility and workforce.
