Preparing to Reopen Your Business

Due to the stringent efforts put in place by the state of Minnesota, each day we inch closer to all businesses having the opportunity to open their doors once again.

While this is an encouraging thought, preparations must be put in place in order for this to go smoothly. We don’t know an exact date as to when this will be a realistic option. At ServiceMaster by Ayotte, we look at this as an opportunity to be extremely prepared — well ahead of time.

Let’s walk through some important steps in the preparation process for reopening your facility, all of which ServiceMaster by Ayotte can help you achieve:


Reopening Cleaning

In order to open your doors, your facility needs to be cleaned beyond a regular janitorial service. At ServiceMaster by Ayotte, we can help prepare your work environment to be in its healthiest state for the return of your employees and customers.

Although diligent disinfecting procedures will need to be put into place as an additional step in your workplace routine moving forward, our team can help get you off on the right foot. We use high standard EPA-approved products that have been shown to be effective in killing 36 strains of bacteria and three fungi, and 18 different viruses. We would be honored to have a hand in helping you open your doors to the community once again.


Preventative Cleaning

Preventative cleaning efforts ensure a thorough, multi-step approach in sanitizing your entire facility. For ServiceMaster by Ayotte, this includes disinfecting high traffic areas and surfaces as well as an overall disinfection for your facility as a whole.

Our team understands how to properly use our cleaning products and systems and personal protective equipment (PPE). This protects our team members and lessens the chance of cross-contamination.


Decontamination Cleaning

If your facility has a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19, a decontamination cleaning is in order. This will require the kind of expertise that can be found with the team at ServiceMaster by Ayotte. We take steps to ensure your facility’s safety with great empathy and professionalism.

We follow an established protocol under the advisement of experts and professionals in the field of decontamination. We understand that each circumstance is unique, and we will structure our protocol and plan accordingly. With our team on your side, a plan will be put in place to properly address your facility’s specific needs.
