Man in sterile uniform

Another school year has come and gone. Though some areas within your educational facility will be used throughout the off-season for summer classes, staff meetings, and other events, there will be much more space and time to tackle important renovations over the summer months. Deep cleaning and disinfection are among the most important tasks to accomplish during this time, especially in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Even if your cleaning staff and/or services have done a great job keep...

Kids starting summer break

In most regions across the U.S., school is officially out for summer. As most students and teachers enjoy a well-deserved break for a few months, commercial cleaning staff must take this opportunity to deeply clean and disinfect classrooms, cafeterias, lounges, hallways, and all other areas so everyone can return to a safe and sanitary facility in the fall. At first, it might seem like cleaners have plenty of time and space to get all of this done. However, there’s a lot of ground to cover at ...

Dorm room

Dormitories are among the most important facilities on university campuses. A significant percentage of new college students spend their first year or two living in a dorm. The quality of these spaces has a major impact on student success, morale, and well-being. If incoming students are met with filthy, worn-down rooms, they’ll have a harder time sleeping, studying, and socializing. Conversely, well-kempt dorms facilitate a more pleasant college experience overall. Of course, dorms are tempor...

The Omicron Variant

Two years after the COVID-19 pandemic first became a global menace, the world still faces wave after wave of this unfortunate disease. Though some experts believe we’re finally approaching the endemic phase of COVID-19 in many regions (i.e., it becomes a regular but manageable disease like the flu), the fight isn’t over yet. The good news is that COVID-19 has already become much easier to manage thanks to highly effective vaccines and treatments. That said, new strains of SARS-CoV-2 continue...

Students throwing up their graduation caps

For many higher ed students, the 2021/2022 school year marked the first “normal” year since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Whereas the past two graduation seasons were either canceled or severely restricted, this spring’s graduation ceremonies will likely be a return to form for many educational institutions. This recovery is great news for students, teachers, and families all over, but it’s also a wake-up call for those staff members in charge of planning the event, overseeing ...

Coronavirus graphic

It’s now been just over two years since the COVID-19 pandemic began its first wave in the U.S. Today, the picture looks much different than it did back in 2020 – and in many ways, the picture is better. Researchers have learned much more about the SARS-CoV-2 virus and its variants, highly effective vaccines and treatments have been developed and widely disseminated, and we’ve seen a steady decrease in COVID-related illness and death nationwide. That said, the pandemic isn’t over. The hig...

Disinfecting an elevator

It’s been almost exactly two years since the COVID-19 pandemic began its first wave in the U.S. Since that time, many lessons have been learned. Most notably, individuals and institutions have gained a renewed appreciation for the importance of proper hygiene, health, and safety. Cleaner facilities cultivate healthier, happier employees, reduce the number of illness-related absences, and function more productively on the whole. Simply put, prioritizing cleaning and disinfection protocols in yo...

Employee disinfecting a table

Many things have changed in the U.S. since March of 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic forced many businesses to temporarily or permanently shut their doors, leaving many people out of a job and others to adjust to a work-from-home lifestyle. Nearly two years later, COVID-19 is still a part of our lives, but we’ve learned a lot along the way. Now, much of the world has access to effective vaccines and treatments, and the newest variant (Omicron) – while more transmissible than its earlier counterpa...

Pieces of newspaper

Last summer, as vaccinations were readily available and Americans spent less time indoors, COVID-19 cases rapidly declined, and many people felt as if the pandemic that began early in 2020 was finally coming to an end. Unfortunately, viruses like SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes the illness COVID-19) are difficult to eradicate completely because of their ability to mutate over time. While some of these mutations don’t amount to much, others can turn into “variants of concern” due to their...
