The COVID-19 pandemic has completely reshaped the way people think about the cleanliness of the facilities they frequent. Not only are they expecting that buildings have been disinfected according to industry guidelines, they also need assurance that proper cleaning processes were followed.
At AkitaBox, we’ve been hard at work creating solutions that will impact our community and make these difficult times easier. Here’s an inside look at AkitaBox DeepClean Assurance, a brand new software we’ve created just for you, our valued customers, to help you drive cleanliness in your buildings and enable a safer return to work.
AkitaBox DeepClean Assurance Software: An Inside Look
In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, AkitaBox understands the importance of building community trust, relieving occupant anxiety, and ensuring that the spaces we inhabit every day are cleaned and disinfected according to recommended government standards.
These concerns inspired us to create AkitaBox DeepClean Assurance, a cloud-based software that will assist custodial teams in following proper cleaning protocols and promoting transparency with stakeholders. The final result will be a shareable assurance certificate that identifies building units that have been cleaned and disinfected according to both CDC and EPA guidelines.
Our Mission Behind AkitaBox DeepClean Assurance
The safety and well-being of our customers is (and always will be) a top priority for us here at AkitaBox, especially as we navigate the obstacles of the coronavirus outbreak.
The AkitaBox DeepClean Assurance software was a labor of love, as we’ve determined that this software is the right thing to create during this incredibly difficult time — not just for our customers, but also for the health of the communities we live in. We’ve been “all hands on deck” here at AkitaBox, working day and night to bring this idea to life, as we know that this software has the power to safeguard occupant health and ensure a safer return to work following quarantine protocols.
Cleaning procedures will remain top-of-mind for people as they look for reassurance that their schools, offices and venues are safe to be in. We hope that AkitaBox DeepClean Assurance will be an invaluable tool for organizations as they work to rebuild community trust and relieve anxiety for parents, occupants and tenants.
"AkitaBox DeepClean Assurance gives peace of mind to building owners, staff, customers and the community as they’ll know that buildings have been cleaned in accordance with strict CDC and EPA guidelines. The key for a safer return to our buildings is to have a simple, visual indicator that allows us to instantly understand that the buildings we are entering have been cleaned and disinfected properly. The peace of mind generated by this tool is priceless as we all return to the buildings in which we work, live and play."
Matt Miszewski, Chief Executive Officer, AkitaBox
How AkitaBox DeepClean Assurance Works
The main goal of AkitaBox DeepClean Assurance is to drive cleanliness best practices in buildings and enable a safe return to work following quarantine protocols. It is driven by disinfection guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Within the software, custodial teams can leverage location-based room pins on their building’s digital floor plans to access cleaning routes, as well as customized checklists that identify areas, objects, and items that must be cleaned and disinfected.
Each room assignment will feature a customized list of EPA-approved cleaning products that the team must use to qualify the room as properly cleaned and disinfected.
The shareable assurance certificate ensures that EPA-approved products have been used to successfully eliminate COVID-19 and other contaminants. The certificate can be printed or digitally displayed for occupants to view, helping to eliminate anxiety around returning to work.
