A healthier, cleaner living and work environment has never been more important.

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is extremely dangerous, spreads quickly, and is nothing to take lightly.

Our expertly trained teams utilize revolutionary electrostatic spraying technology and hospital grade disinfectants that eliminate human error and effectively kill 99.9% of bacteria, germs, and viruses. We apply our proactive programs to ensure your facility remains safe and reactive programs to respond to a suspected or confirmed case.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information You Need To Know

Proactive Programs (Mitigating the Risk of a Potential Outbreak)

As the confirmed COVID-19 cases and death toll continues to rise, keeping your facility clean/sanitized and disinfected is now more important than ever.

To mitigate the risk of any potential exposure or outbreak consistent disinfection services are advised. All “high risk” areas (door handles, push plates, light switches, railings, outside of appliances, copy machines, desk tops, floors, etc.) are the main areas of focus within our Proactive Programs.

Before entering the building, our team will be equipped with appropriate PPE including disposable nitrile gloves, respirators or masks approved by the CDC for protection against the virus/bacteria/infectious disease, and eyewear (goggles, safety glasses, etc.).

High Risk areas are first cleaned with a multipurpose solution to remove any organic and inorganic matter (oil from skin, dirt, dust, etc.). This imperative step ensures all surfaces are properly prepared for disinfection.

With the use of Electrostatic Spraying System and other devices, all surfaces are then sprayed with hospital-grade, EPA registered disinfectant. These Electrostatic Spraying Systems ensure all surfaces, whether contact or non-contact, are properly disinfected. To effectively kill 99.9% of germs, the disinfectant is left on the surface/object for the necessary dwell time (4 minutes or less for our products). Once this dwell time is reached, the surface/object is then wiped with a microfiber cloth deeming the surface or object cleaned, sanitized, and disinfected. Flyers are left at all facilities and areas informing when the work was performed.

Reactive Programs (Suspected/Confirmed Cases of COVID-19)

Upon a confirmed outbreak, OSFC Inc. will meet with the building/facility management to determine areas of concentration and affected buildings/rooms/sections. Based on this information, Ocean State Facility Services, Inc. will implement staffing and management plans to ensure continuity of services and response. Once affected areas have been identified and evacuated by building/facility management, areas are closed off utilizing barricades and appropriate signage and staff preparation begins. Prior to commencing work, all staff receive a routine training to ensure proper protocol is adhered to.

Before entering the building, our team will be equipped with appropriate PPE including disposable nitrile gloves, respirators or masks approved by the CDC for protection against the virus/bacteria/infectious disease, and eyewear (goggles, safety glasses, etc.).

All surfaces and areas are first cleaned with a multipurpose solution to remove any organic and inorganic matter (oil from skin, dirt, dust, etc.). This imperative step ensures that germs are not hidden under the organic matter and from the disinfectant. Disinfectants do not contain the capability to break through soils and other matter on surfaces.

With the use of Electrocstatic Spraying System all surfaces are next sprayed with hospital-grade, EPA registered disinfectant. These Electrostatic Spraying Systems ensure all surfaces – whether contact or non-contact – are properly disinfected. To effectively kill 99.9% of germs the disinfectant is left on the surface/object for the necessary dwell time (4 minutes or less for our products). Once this dwell time is reached the germs/bacteria/virus particles are killed and incapable of reproducing. The surface/object is then wiped with a microfiber cloth. The surface or object is now cleaned, sanitized, and disinfected. All PPE and supplied deemed unusable after the disinfection process are removed and disposed of properly. Flyers are left at all facilities and areas informing of when the work was performed and facility management is notified.

 

Note: We will respond after the areas have been cleared for a minimum of 4 hours. In some cases, the minimum period to respond can be up to 24 hours based on the CDC’s directives pertaining to the circumstances involved.

The Electrostatic Spraying System Explained

The Electrostatic Spraying System uses cutting edge technology to kill 99.9% of bacteria, germs, and viruses, eliminating human spray and wipe error and ensures that all surfaces – whether contact or non-contact – are properly and efficiently disinfected.

Electrostatic Spraying is the process of spraying an electrostatically charged mist onto surfaces and objects. The Electrostatic Spray is combined with air and is atomized by an electrode inside the sprayer which positively charges the particles (mist) so that it adheres to any and all surfaces and objects. The electrostatic force field is so powerful that the droplets have the power to coat hidden and hard to reach surfaces that would typically be missed by conventional spraying or misting equipment. This revolutionary technology combined the right chemicals with the perfect tools, resulting in a more dynamic and effective way to sanitize and disinfect anytime, anywhere.

What Disinfectants Are Being Used?

Ocean State Facility Services, Inc. uses hospital-grade disinfection concentration and effervescent sanitizing tablets that kill 99.9% of viruses, germs, and bacteria within 4 minutes. All products are approved by the EPA to effectively kill the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Will The Spray Damage Computers/Electronics?

The Electrostatic Spraying System emits a mist so fine that it dries fast enough to do no harm to any electronic equipment while effectively disinfecting.

What Is Coronavirus (COVID-19)?

The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-2019) is a respiratory disease that can be spread by person to person contact, which causes a serious public health risk. The symptoms are similar to those of influenza and other respiratory illnesses including coughing, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, and high fever.

How Does Coronavirus (COVID-19) Spread?

The virus that causes COVID-19 is said to have emerged from an animal source but is now being spread wildly by person-to-person and surface-to-person contact. The virus is spread by close contact with another person (within 6 feet) via airborne droplets that are produced when someone sneezes or coughs or – most commonly – by touching a surface or object that has the COVID-19 virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, eyes, etc.

Keeping Our Clients and Team Safe

In an attempt to mitigate the risk of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) as much as possible, Ocean State Facility Services, Inc. hosts company-wide meetings to discuss the protocol and proper processes for disinfecting all facilities.

Safe and healthy facilities are the business of everyone, but as custodians and maintenance staff we realize the significance of our role in providing a healthy work, school, or living environment. Buildings and facilities we service can become densely populated making them more susceptible to infectious diseases such as Coronavirus, colds, influenza, norovirus, and other diseases such as methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

Through routine training and planning OSFS is ready to respond in the event that a pandemic or confirmed infection outbreak occurs and focus on a proactive approach when the heightened levels of potential for an outbreak exist.

What Are Ocean State Facility Services's Preventative Measure Recommendations for Clients?

We urge everyone in each building/facility to follow the precautionary measures suggested by the CDC to help prevent the spread of respiratory disease. These include:

  • Increase disinfection of “high touch” and “high risk” surfaces
  • Avoid shaking hands with others
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 30 seconds
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue – then dispose of tissue in the trash
  • Encourage symptomatic staff to remain at home
  • Closely monitor employee health
