Facility Cleaning

 

Deep facility cleaning to combat against COVID-19 and other viruses.

Hughes Environmental, a national leader in environmental and facility cleaning/disinfection solutions, has several solutions that can help safeguard your facility as COVID-19 begins to spread and take over the winter months. These solutions include BIOPROTECT™, Electrostatic Disinfection, UVC Disinfection, and COVID-19 hard surface testing. According to the CDC, COVID-19 may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials. Each deep facility cleaning solution has been endorsed by multiple national entities and some of the top organizations in the country.

​We are operating 24/7 to meet any COVID-19 responses. Just call 888-845-3952.

From infection control for duct cleaning in hospitals to OSHA confined space training and fall protection when working from lifts, Hughes Environmental’s technicians are experienced and trained to meet your facility’s safety requirements. We’ve performed hundreds of cleaning projects in all kinds of facilities. So, whether your building is a manufacturing facility, a university, school, hospital, or office building, we can help you breathe easier with facility cleaning.

BIOPROTECT™ Facility Cleaning

Avoid potential shutdowns in your community by implementing BIOPROTECT™ facility cleaning, an EPA and FDA approved antimicrobial technology that provides persistent and continuous protection of surfaces for up to 60-90 days.

When applied to surfaces, BIOPROTECT™ forms a bond, creating a protective coat on the surfaces of your building that hinders the growth of mold, mildew, and fungi and ruptures the cells of viruses, inhibiting them from spreading. When used in combination with your current cleaning protocol, your facility and employees can stay protected as cases begin to surge.

Check out our BIOPROTECT™ webpage for more information on how your facility can be protected for up to 60-90 days.

Electrostatic Facility Cleaning with UVC Disinfection

This deep facility cleaning will consist of a combination of hand wiping and/or utilizing an electrostatic sprayer to apply a disinfectant/solution that is EPA registered for use against the cause of COVID-19 to accessible targeted surfaces. These surfaces could consist of hard surfaces, furniture, equipment, etc.

Accessible Objects (e.g. Medical equipment, Computers, Documents and electronics) will be disinfected utilizing a mobile UVC Light Handheld Wand.

Based on CDC Guidelines, particular attention will be given to:

  • Workstations
  • Counter tops
  • Doorknobs/Handles
  • Elevator/Buttons
  • Security Card Readers
  • Faucets
  • Escalator handrails

COVID-19 Hard Surface Testing

Not only can Hughes Environmental help disinfect your facility, we can help verify that certain areas of your facility are clean with our COVID-19 hard surface testing. A member of Hughes Environmental will swab high-touch areas around your facility to detect the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus (COVID-19 or coronavirus) on surfaces based on the CDC 2019-nCoV Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel protocol.
