COVID-19 Response Services
Tailoring Programs for Healthy Operations
As more facilities reopen for business, KBS continues to partner with leading companies to deliver essential facility services that help customers and employees stay safe. We tailor solutions based on site-specific needs, applying our deep expertise and four levels of COVID-19 responses to maintain healthy operations.
KBS partners with clients on a national scale to deliver programs that limit the spread of harmful bacteria and viruses, and prepare for outbreaks if they do occur. The KBS science advisory board and Innovation Center have developed and supported proven, proprietary technology and protocols that drive our facility hygiene programs. KBS sets standards beyond EPA and FDA recommendations, deploying the right products for the right environments.
Our COVID-19 Response Includes Four Levels
We offer tailored responses to adjust or increase the frequency of cleaning and disinfection within facilities to maintain healthy operations and help customers and employees stay safe.
Some key strategies include re-prioritizing areas within an existing scope of work and de-prioritizing others, adjusting the time of day and duration of work, and introducing and safely applying EPA-registered disinfectants.
We also work with our clients to offer turnkey solutions or supplement the work of their internal teams with KBS professional cleaning teams.
Our teams work with clients to expand the scope of services to meet demand, including high touchpoint cleaning, which is critical to maintaining healthy operations. High frequency touchpoint cleaning encompasses handrails, door handles, counter tops, light switches, elevator buttons, keyboards, telephones, restroom fixtures, hygiene barriers, and any other surface or object where the virus can exist for hours or even days. Increasing the scope of cleaning may also be combined with an increased frequency of disinfection and may include intermittent fogging and UV disinfection protocols where appropriate.
KBS delivers single or periodic deep cleaning to a wide range of operations, providing customers and employees with assurance that spaces that have been closed during the crisis are ready to reopen.
Services at this level of deep cleaning often include HEPA vacuuming of all carpeted areas, machine cleaning of all floor surfaces with EPA-registered disinfectant cleaning solutions, hygiene barrier cleaning, the proper application of virucides on all horizontal surfaces, disinfecting all furniture and fixtures, and hot water and sanitizer extraction of upholstered furniture.
KBS dispatches remediation teams to clean and disinfect areas potentially exposed to the virus. These teams are specially trained and equipped to treat the environment thoroughly, so facilities can become safely operational as quickly as possible. Workers for this service are equipped with head-to-toe level 4 PPE. After a minimum five-hour wait time, KBS teams perform deep cleaning and disinfection of all horizontal and vertical surfaces, which may also include disinfectant fogging and/or UV disinfection. Dispatching response teams in a matter of hours, KBS has safely performed over 250,000 COVID-19 response cleanings nationwide.
