Sealco will be expanding our services to include preventative disinfecting services and help our clients meet their disinfectant needs in critical spaces and common areas of their facilities. We are here to answer questions regarding the initial or recurring services we can offer and minimizing risk factors inside your facilities.
Procedure overview for preventative disinfecting services
First and foremost, the best way to keep the inside of any critical room clean is by following the CDC recommendations. Facilities should limit the number of vendors in a room at one time and either invest in a stand-alone handwashing stations / or sanitizer bottle outside the data hall. Anyone entering the room must wash their hands, place disposable gloves on and wear a mask. Upon leaving the room, there should be a receptacle placed by the door with a lid to dispose of these items. Finally, visitors and vendors should wash or sanitize their hands again before leaving the area.
In addition to these procedures, Sealco will regularly:
- Disinfect all cabinet handles

- Vacuum and mop all flooring
- Wipe any contact points on cages, or containment doors
- Disinfect doors handles coming in and out of each room.

Facilities should limit the numbers of employees per CDC guidelines when possible. Invest in handwashing and / or sanitizers for when employees and others visitors enter the facility before moving about the building. Cleaning in these areas will consist of using electrostatic misters, alcohol wipes and a rotation of other EPA-recommended cleaners based on supplies at the time.
Areas to be sanitized include:
