We are prepared to disinfect businesses

According to the CDC, cleaning is the necessary first step of any disinfection process.

The CDC recommends hard surface disinfection for high touch surfaces.

Stanley Steemer uses an EPA Registered Disinfectant Cleaner to kill a broad spectrum of microorganisms in order to provide clean, sanitary and healthy commercial spaces.

This product is a hospital-grade disinfectant cleaner that meets the EPA's current criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2 when used on hard/non-porous surfaces such as:

  • Railings
  • Counter Tops
  • Door Handles
  • Tables and Desks
  • Bathroom and Kitchen Handles

This product also disinfects hard/non-porous flooring and is a highly effective cleaner of Soft/Porous Surfaces—including Carpet, Rugs and Upholstery—when used in connection with our proprietary and industry-leading cleaning equipment.

We also have enhanced our Equipment Disinfection Protocol with the introduction of an additional EPA Antimicrobial Registered Disinfectant which also meets the EPA’s criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2 and other Emerging Viral Pathogens. All cleaning equipment will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after every job for the health and safety of our employees and to limit any risk of transfer. This process will be repeated at the end of each workday along with a complete cleaning and disinfection of our service vehicles.

    Protecting school buildings and your investment is a top priority of ours which is why we have qualified insurance coverage. Feel secure knowing you’re in trusted hands when you go with Stanley Steemer.

  4. We offer maintenance cleaning programs.

    We know the day-to-day operation of schools and universities is hard work. To accommodate your schedule, we can set up a program to have the school regularly cleaned. We clean as frequently as you need whether that’s weekly, monthly or quarterly.

  5. We provide flexible scheduling.

    Before classes begin, after they finish or somewhere in between, we will work with you to make sure you get the thorough cleaning you need, when you need it. Even weekends.

  6. Our processes are safe for students and teaching staff.

    We use EPA Safer Choice cleaning solutions that are free of harsh chemicals. After a professional cleaning, you can be certain that no traces of harmful residue will be left behind. Just a safe clean for the entire school.

  7. Our technicians are educated, trained, and background checked.

    We take your safety and our hiring process seriously which is why we background check* our technicians. Once hired, all technicians go through intensive learning programs to be experts in professional cleaning. They can confidently identify flooring types, pre-test areas for safe practice and assess the proper cleaning method unique to the school.

    *Contact your local Stanley Steemer for their background check policy.

  8. Our cleaning technology reduces indoor allergens.

    We are proven to remove an average of 94% of allergens from carpet, 96.5% of allergens from tile and grout, and 96% of allergens from hardwood. We also remove irritating dirt and dust trapped in ductwork using our powerful HEPA-filtered vacuum. This can help the school breathe a little easier especially for any students or teachers suffering from asthma or allergy-related symptoms. We also offer free air duct inspections to assess how the school can benefit from a professional air duct cleaning.
