COVID-19 has caused major changes on every level for businesses in every sector.

ServiceMaster of Victoria provides professional office cleaning and sanitizing services including telephone sanitizing and cleaning and sanitizing for computer workstations and other high-traffic locations in your office, to help prevent the outbreak and transmission of infectious disease in workplaces.
While some areas of offices such as door handles, elevator buttons, reception areas are more prone to harbour bacteria, it turns out that phones, desks and computer keyboards and accessories are the worst offenders. A study conducted by environmental microbiologist Dr. Charles Gerba at the University of Arizona, found that an office desk can have almost 21,000 germs per square inch and phones more than 25,000 germs per square inch. Compare that to the average office toilet seat that has 49 germs per square inch.1

Did you know?
Is urethane slippery when wet?
Any coated surface can be slippery when wet. Our urethane product is considered to have acceptable slip resistance according to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)/National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) B101.3-2012 test method for measuring wet dynamic coefficient of friction (DCOF) of common hard-surface floor materials. We offer optional additives to create high slip resistance (lower probability of slipping) for wet environments or areas of concern.
Why is it called COVID-19?
COVID-19 is an acronym that stands for coronavirus disease of 2019. The World Health Organization (WHO) has officially named the disease COVID-19 and the virus that causes the disease as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)

How can I protect myself from COVID-19?
Together, we can slow the spread of COVID-19 by making a conscious effort to keep a physical distance between each other. Social distancing is proven to be one of the most effective ways to reduce the spread of illness during an outbreak.
This means making changes in your everyday routines to minimize close contact with others, including:
- avoiding crowded places and non-essential gatherings
- avoiding common greetings, such as handshakes
- limiting contact with people at higher risk like older adults and those in poor health
- keeping a distance of at least 2 arms-length (approximately 2 metres) from others
Proper hygiene can help reduce the risk of infection or spreading infection to others:
- wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after using the washroom and when preparing food
- use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available
- when coughing or sneezing:
- cough or sneeze into a tissue or the bend of your arm, not your hand
- dispose of any tissues you have used as soon as possible in a lined waste basket and wash your hands afterwards
- avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
While it is not certain how long COVID-19 survives on surfaces, it does seem to behave like other coronaviruses. Preliminary information on COVID-19 suggests that the virus may persist on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days depending on different conditions, such as:
- type of surface
- humidity of the environment
Although they do not claim to kill viruses such as COVID-19, cleaning solutions can play a role in helping limit the transfer of microorganisms. Health Canada has published a list of hard surface disinfectants that are likely to be effective for use against coronavirus (COVID-19). Public health officials such as WHO and Health Canada recommend cleaning high-touch surfaces often. In the workplace, it is recommended that high traffic work areas or frequently touched surfaces are disinfected twice daily. For example:
In your home:
- door handles
- bedside tables
- television remotes
In the workplace:
- computers, including keyboards and mice
- light switches
- faucet handles
- cabinet handles
- elevator buttons
- cash registers
- restaurant tables and menus
