Building service contractors (BSCs) have more than a few tricks up their sleeves when it comes to effective cleaning and disinfecting. These experts are responsible for keeping facilities looking good and running in tiptop shape, no matter what they’re up against. But, a big part of keeping facilities running smoothly involves cleaning something beyond what the eye can see – germs. Germs, including bacteria, viruses and other pathogens are invisible to people but can pack serious punch when it comes to taking down a facility.

Building Services Management Magazine recently published an article showcasing how BSCs can implement the Clorox® Total 360® and electrostatic disinfecting to enhance their service offering and provide more value to customers. The Clorox® Total 360® uses an electrostatically charged applicator to evenly coat surfaces with disinfecting solution, killing germs and reducing the likelihood that harmful bacteria will be spread to others. It provides wraparound coverage, so even hard-to-reach surfaces can be disinfected in a fraction of the time it takes traditional trigger sprayers.

During cold and flu season, this is exactly the kind of peace of mind that companies are looking for to help keep their facilities healthy and productive. Colds and flu are responsible for over 1.5 million missed work days in Canada every year. Eliminating bacteria from surfaces will reduce the spread of infection and will help minimize the number of people who get sick.
