At this time Maids on a Mission recommends extra precautions at your home, office or anytime you are in public places. We have to go back to our basic hygiene habits. Stay home if you’re sick. Avoid others who are sick. Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze with the inner elbow. If you are out in public and you see someone who isn’t, kindly remind them to do so. Please avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with dirty hands. The virus must enter your body for you to get sick. We can’t stress enough the importance of washing your hands. Wash your hands frequently with soapy water for a minimum of 20 seconds. If you can’t wash use an alcohol based hand sanitizer; as often as every 15-20 minutes when out in crowded spaces. You’ll want to focus on disinfecting the high touch points in your home or office. At this time our recommendations are every 24 hours in your offices and your cell phones, once a week, at minimum, in your homes and immediately anytime you come in contact with an ill person in your home or office. High touch points in a home or office can include: door knobs, counter tops, table tops, computer keyboards, remote controls, telephones, switch plates, door handles, appliance handles, toilet, sink, tub, and shower handles. If disinfected properly it can help keep you and your family healthy through this epidemic READ YOUR PRODUCT LABELS. It’s important to read your disinfecting product directions on the back of the product before use. Disinfecting is not a spray and wipe process. It needs dwell time to take effect. Dwell time means allow the product to sit on the surface. Do not spray and wipe. Also keep in mind if your surfaces are built up with a lot of dust, soap, scum etc. you have to clean those surfaces before you can disinfect. You can’t disinfect until you’ve removed the build up. Maintaining the cleaning and clutter in your home or office on a weekly basic will save you time if you need to quickly disinfect. If anyone with an illness is in your home or office you’ll want to disinfect touch points immediately after learning they were ill. Please reach out if you have any questions, concerns or if we can help assist you in any way. All we ask is if you experience illnesses please let us know in advance by calling the OFFICE IMMEDIATELY at (210)988-0288. We are here to help protect us all. Our staff has been instructed to do the same. Our staff will come to into your home with gloves, face masks, shoe booties, and a no touch thermometer to instantly show that they are not fevered when entering your home.
Don’t panic just take precautions when out in public. It’s important to get out during this time. We all need a little sunshine. It’s good for the body and soul. Do get out a few hours a day. Be cautious in public places and carry your hand sanitizer sprays when you go out.
