ISS launches workplace virus disinfection cleaning service to meet demand

Office workers worldwide prepare to re-enter their workplaces but, is it safe, millions ask. With the corona pandemic, people are worried about the places they work, and many workplaces around the world demand hygienic deep cleaning.

To accommodate this need, global workplace experience and facility management company ISS has launched ‘Pure Space’ – a new product offering disinfection cleaning of workplaces focused on breaking the chain of infection between people. The procedure is an add-on to daily office cleaning services.

“Companies need to re-establish the physical connection between people and places by bringing employees back to work environments that meet a higher standard of hygiene and disinfection control. Companies want to restore the emotional connection of employees by building confidence in the safety of the workplace,” says ISS Group COO, Troels Bjerg.

Research indicates that a virus applied to a high-contact surface, such as a doorknob or a tabletop, can infect 40-60% of the people in a work-place within two to four hours.

Pure Space maximizes hygiene and effectively removes all microorganisms that are typical sources of cross-infection. The cleaning focuses on high-touch surfaces – areas that human hands touch often. With Pure Space, surfaces are free of microorganisms and results are tested and evidenced with advanced technology.

All ISS cleaning professionals working with Pure Space are fully trained and certified. Pure Space is effective and eliminates all sources of infection on surfaces and has been verified by third party verifier, Norske Veritas.

Group Chief Operating Officer, Troels Bjerg said, “ISS has a responsibility to help society break the chain of infection. To do that we have developed Pure Space with our scientific knowledge of large-scale cleaning, disinfection and workplace experience.

'We have developed the product within a few weeks utilizing our experts from all over the world. ISS and our people are dedicated to making our customers’ employees reconnect with the places they work, in the aftermath of the corona pandemic.

“We’ve taken inspiration from the years of experience we have working in clean room environments, hospitals and healthcare organizations with zero tolerance of any breaches in hygiene and disinfection protocols.

'With Pure Space, we are taking our knowledge and methods of fulfilling those requirements and transferring them to the office environment.”
