What is AkitaBox DeepClean Assurance?

AkitaBox DeepClean Assurance (ADCA) is a cloud-based software application that drives cleanliness best practices in buildings and enables a safe return to office buildings. The application is driven by disinfection guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The software is designed to assist organizations in following proper cleaning protocols and promoting transparency with stakeholders. The final result is a shareable assurance certificate that identifies building units that have been cleaned and disinfected according to both CDC and EPA guidelines.

How AkitaBox Will Empower Salute’s Mission

Salute’s world-class cleaning procedures and highly disciplined workforce will integrate CDC and EPA guidelines with AkitaBox DeepClean Assurance software to produce a shareable assurance certificate that demonstrates that a data center has been cleaned and disinfected accordingly. The shareable assurance certificate ensures that EPA-approved products have been used to eliminate COVID-19 and other contaminants successfully. The certificate can be printed or digitally displayed for occupants to view, helping to eliminate anxiety around returning to work.
