Although the COVID-19 pandemic is in the rearview mirror, cleaning professionals need to keep their focus front and center when it comes to cleaning for health. As a facility manager, you must ensure building surfaces are clean and disinfected and the indoor air is not harboring infectious germs. As a building service contractor (BSC), you have the same goals but with the added challenge of selling your services.

Discover infection prevention tips that will help you reach these goals by attending Strengthen the Synergy of Cleaning & Disinfection, a free webinar brought to you by Cleaning & Maintenance Management (CMM). A panel of industry experts will offer infection prevention best practices that, when enacted, will give you confidence that your cleaning team is helping to keep facility inhabitants healthy—every day. They’ll provide valuable strategies to improve and enhance your cleaning operation with a focus on infection prevention.

By attending, you’ll learn:
  • How to identify the germiest areas in facilities
  • How to effectively use cleaning and disinfecting products on surfaces
  • How to justify increased frequency of cleaning and disinfecting
  • Why a focus on improving indoor air quality is critical today
  • How to build confidence in the staff cleaning your buildings
  • And much more!
The expert panel for this webinar includes:
  • Jeff Cross (moderator), Media Director, ISSA
  • Dr. Gavin Macgregor-Skinner, Senior Director, GBAC
  • Kimberly Thomas, Special Projects Advisor, University of Georgia
  • Kevin Barton, President of Aviation and Janitorial Operations, Flagship Facility Services

A live Q&A session will round out the webinar. Come prepared with questions specific to the challenges and concerns you face on the job. Our expert panelists will be ready! Registrants can participate in the live event and will obtain a link to the webinar recording afterward.
