Are you confident that your cleaning efforts meet expectations and eliminate disease-causing germs? Join us for our upcoming free webinar with a special guest speaker, Dr. Gavin Macgregor-Skinner.

During the webinar, we’ll delve into the importance and methodology of assessing the cleanliness of surfaces and the quality of indoor air post-cleaning.

Dr. Gavin will discuss that while verification checks that certain tasks were completed at a certain frequency, measuring cleanliness determines objectively that you are professional, meets expectations, and has removed soil and disease-causing germs.

The webinar will explain why these evaluations are essential and how they can be performed. During the webinar, Dr. Gavin will share methods, tools, and resources to enable you to create a truly safe and clean environment. You’ll also learn that any method is better than nothing, and the ideal one will depend on customer expectations, the desired level of cleanliness, and your available resources.
