Newton, MA (PressExposure) February 03, 2011 -- The Maids Cleaning Services in Newton, North Reading and New Bedford, Massachusetts, are initiating a flu prevention plan of action to ensure that all its cleaning staff are protected and at the same time, ensuring customer homes are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized.
Matt Donnelly of The Maids says that developing a prevention checklist and a plan of action, should there be a flu outbreak, is the current focus of the company. "It is difficult to predict how seasonal viruses may impact my business," he said. "The best defense is a good offense. I want to be prepared to respond in a flexible way to ensure that my teams and customers enjoy the healthiest environment we can provide."
Donnelly explains that this formal plan has a dual objective in mind. "We owe it to our staff to protect them as much as possible, and likewise, we want to assure our customers that The Maids are taking care of them by letting them know that we are taking preventive steps to ensure our employees safety, and theirs and their family's health," Donnelly says. This initiative covers a multi-level approach, beginning with The Massachusetts Maids teams themselves. The initiative includes training field managers to identify flu symptoms and sending staff members home for a much-needed rest and convalescence. Each employee is also encouraged to get flu shots. To ensure there is no shortage in the cleaning teams, qualified and trained replacement staff will be on hold to fill in for the regulars.
The Maids is the only residential cleaning franchise to clean for health using an exclusive 22-Step Healthy Touch® Deep Cleaning System. Their unique cleaning method provides customers with cleaner, healthier homes through their distinctive cleaning products and equipment, as well as their strategic, methodic cleaning approach. As an emphasis on preventing the outbreak of flu, The Maids is introducing additional cleaning methods, which included (but not limited to):
1. Using separate cleaning tools for each customer homes.
2. Sanitizing vacuum attachments, buckets and other equipment between customer homes.
3. Re-training of The Maids teams in the correct sanitizing of surfaces.
In addition to these efforts, Donnelly also emphasizes a clean working environment for all three offices, and has directed the regular cleaning and disinfection of offices, desktops, office phones. The Maids of Newton, North Reading and New Bedford will also be including daily sanitation of its service cars, as well as full cleaning every week. Each car will be stocked with hand sanitizers.
