As residents of the Tucson area, we are all experiencing a time of significant anxiety and stress. At Zerorez® Tucson, we are impacted too, and we truly want to help.
Therefore, we are open and actively serving our community during this difficult time. With the situation changing daily we want you to know that we are thinking about your family - and ours.
With that, we wanted to give you all some valuable information on exactly how Zerorez® Tucson is taking precautions for your safety - and ours - during the COVID-19 outbreak, as well as some professional cleaning tips on keeping your home clean and germ-free and how we can help with that!
As we said above, we are open and ready to clean your homes during this chaotic time we’re in! With that, our technicians are taking steps to do their part in keeping everyone healthy.
This will all begin with our technicians washing their hands regularly, and disinfecting equipment between each and every job!
And no need to worry- if our techs aren’t feeling well, they will be staying home!
But the best part of all of this is that we will be providing each customer with a free spray bottle of Powered Water® after their cleaning to continue killing germs after we leave.
We’ve been thinking about what we can do to help our community during this time and with the shortage of cleaning supplies out there right now, and we could think of no better gift than our patented Powered Water®.
Powered Water® is a great multi-surface cleaner, and our hope is that we can help ease the stress that the shortage of cleaning supplies may be causing.
We do ask that you please call to reschedule your appointment if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or are feeling ill. If you currently have an appointment we will honor any pricing and will be more than happy to clean for you once everyone is feeling better.
Keeping our homes clean and germ-free has never been more important. At a time where we are all feeling the safest in our homes, it’s important to make sure our homes truly are safe!
The CDC recommends cleaning the surfaces in your home to help stop the spread of viruses.
For carpeting, the CDC recommends:
“For soft (porous) surfaces such as carpeted floors, rugs, and drapes, remove visible contamination if present and cleaning with appropriate cleaners indicated for use on these surfaces.”
Thorough cleaning is required before high-level disinfection and sterilization because inorganic and organic materials that remain on the surfaces of instruments interfere with the effectiveness of these processes.
Zerorez® Tucson removes more soil and contaminants than any competitor. We feel this, in combination with proper disinfecting, will significantly decrease the spread of viruses and make your home and family safer.
Perhaps the most important thing to have cleaned and disinfected in your home, is any shared surface, i.e. counters, tables, chairs, doors and handles, bathrooms, sinks, and faucets, etc..
The CDC recommends:
Use diluted household bleach solutions if appropriate for the surface. Check to ensure the product is not past its expiration date. Unexpired household bleach will be effective against coronaviruses when properly diluted.
Be sure to wear disposable gloves whenever cleaning and disinfecting surfaces. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water immediately after removing the gloves.
If reusable gloves are used, those gloves should be dedicated to cleaning and disinfection of surfaces for COVID-19 and should not be used for other purposes.
We recommend keeping these gloves in a safe, inaccessible space that is not touching any other surfaces.
Keeping up on your laundry is an important factor in stopping the spread of germs and viruses in the home.
For clothing, towels, linens and other items, the CDC recommends wearing disposable gloves when handling the laundry and washing your hands with soap and warm water upon removal of the gloves.
Make a point to not shake out any dirty laundry, to avoid throwing any germs into the air. As well, don’t be too worried about washing your clothing with an ill person’s clothing- your laundry will be fine if washed with other people’s items.
One factor that we don’t often think about is the cleaning and disinfecting of clothes hampers. Make a habit of doing this between every laundry cycle.
Last but not least, of course, is handing washing! Without a doubt, the most important preventative step during the COVID-19 outbreak.
For this, the CDC recommends:
Household members should clean hands often, including immediately after removing gloves and after contact with an ill person, by washing hands with soap and water for 20 seconds.
If soap and water are not available and hands are not visibly dirty, an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol may be used. However, if hands are visibly dirty, always wash hands with soap and water.
Household members should follow normal preventive actions while at work and home including recommended hand hygiene and avoiding touching eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
This is particularly important after blowing one’s nose, coughing, or sneezing, using the restroom, before eating or preparing food, after contact with animals or pets.
Be sure to follow your handwashing routines before and after providing routine care for another person who needs assistance and especially around the immune-compromised and elderly individuals!
