Our teams are helping warehouses and logistics centers stay open and sanitized. We’ve teamed with a number of large corporate brands to enhance their surface cleaning efforts using housekeepers and cleaning staff displaced from hotels. It’s about keeping spaces clean, safe and operational and also about putting people to work.
At HSS, we’re working 110% to make this happen! We’re deploying as many workers as we can to these locations. Dealing with transportation, supplies, badging, and other challenges have kept HSS busy but we’re all excited about this opportunity to help people find new work until the hotels are back up and running.
HSS is working with major pharmacies chains across the U.S. to keep space open, cleaned, and sanitized during the crisis. Cleaning crews normally employed at hotels are being dispatched to stories with cleaning gear and chemicals. We’re proud of the work our teams are doing and so happy to find people the work that they need to get through this crisis. The entire HSS/KBS team have been able to turn on a dime during this crisis to keep working and keep it clean!
Here is great video on how the virus actually spreads. This highlights the need for surface cleaning that is consistent. One off deep cleans can be an important part of the strategy, but day-to-day surface cleaning, particularly in high-touch areas, is vital.
From the Amazon blog on the importance of cleaning in their fulfillment offices:
We have increased the frequency and intensity of cleaning at all sites, including regular sanitization of door handles, handrails, touch screens, scanners, and other frequently touched areas. We’re also requiring employees and delivery service partners to clean and disinfect their work stations.
As National Guard Troops and other government personnel are deployed during this crisis, we’re hearing back from our hotel clients of growing need for cleaning services. HSS is here to help with a field organization ready to deploy housekeepers and public area cleaners.
In addition, our parent company KBS is providing various levels of deep-cleaning that can help limit the spread of COVID-19.
Throughout this crisis, HSS is staying engaged with its worker community:
We are working with customers to provide enhanced cleaning services and staff for public area cleaning. Meeting this increased demand for these types of services is a top priority for our company.
HSS is maintaining its pool of hospitality workers by finding hours in other areas of need. Many business are enhancing public area cleaning and HSS is here to help. This ensures that we will maintain an active and robust pool of talent when demand surges after this crisis recedes.
