    When janitorial services are mentioned, a few common things come to mind: Sweeping floors, washing windows, cleaning and disinfecting surfaces, vacuuming floors... and the list goes on. But one of the most effective and noticeable things commonly  goes unmentioned: carpet cleaning. An uncleaned carpet can detract from the overall appeal of any building, and neglecting your carpet can easily create one big, odorous eyesore. That's why when you employ a member of the IJCSA, you can rest assured that the carpet will get the same priority as the rest of your facility.

    Members of the IJCSA such as our business (Lanford Group, LLC) understand that a carpet is just as important as having clean windows and a tidy interior. Many members of IJCSA have undergone training to become certified in carpet care & cleaning, and it shows in the work that we do.

    DISINFECTING CORONAVIRUS/HIV/Hepatitis B./Hepatitis C./Aids/Influenzas

    We use CDC approved and EPA registered disinfectants with a broad spectrum kill claim. They are safe and food grade. All infected materials are cleaned, disinfected, and properly disposed of. Employees are fully encapsulated in personal protective equipment (PPE).

    Respirator masks and face shields are worn at all times by our certified cleanup technicians. We adhere to a stringent coronavirus demobilization process for our equipment, trucks, and employees.

    Disease outbreak is an extremely serious situation and we understand that the health and safety of you, your family, and employees are on the line. Don’t take any chances; call in the professionals. See our most recent posts for additional frequently asked questions on disinfecting coronavirus in your place of business or home.


    When selecting a company to provide coronavirus, mold, asbestos, microorganism remediation and disinfection services, it is imperative that you select a company, like EDA Inc., that is OSHA compliant and certified and follows all CDC guidance regarding coronavirus.

    General Duty Clause, 29 USC 654, section 5(a)(1) requires that employers protect their employees from recognized hazards. 

    “Each employer shall furnish to each of his employees’ employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.”

    Additionally, the coronavirus is listed as a serious health hazard and must be recorded as an occupational illness in 29 CFR 1904.5(b)(2). This means that if an employee contracts COVID-19 from another employee or through occupational exposure on a cleaning job you asked him to do, the illness is recordable on the OSHA log for that business. If it results in job restriction, days away or fatality, this is also required to be recorded. If an employer chooses to ignore or not record that incident the employer will be held responsible. If you have a cleaning company not certified or licensed in biohazard “virus” cleanup and have not done the due diligence to vet that company it is the employers’ responsibility. Insurance companies are demanding all employers find reputable cleaning companies certified in the biohazard cleanup of “viruses”. Ultimately the employer did what they could, to help stop the spread and protect their employees and by doing so protect themselves their company and their assets.

    There is a requirement 29 CFR 1904.5(b)(2). to contact OSHA to actually report infections or hospitalization if it is from Coronavirus. Now more than ever if there is an infection, an OSHA and insurance investigation would follow and could result in a fine if the company did not take the necessary measures “ Disinfection practices and record keeping.” to  curb the spread. A lawyer will not be far behind. Protect your assets by implementing the steps necessary to curb the spread.

    It is extremely important for cleaning employees to be aware of the risk that comes from bloodborne pathogens. Cleaning staff could come into contact with many forms of bodily fluids that have the possibility of spreading disease. There is a possibility to infect themselves and many others by not properly handling situations where bloodborne pathogens could be a risk. Cleaning staff should always use universal precautions.

    Even if a particular cleaning staff member would not usually be expected to come into contact with a bloodborne pathogen, they should have the proper training to be able to handle the situation and reduce the chances of anyone contracting a bloodborne pathogen whenever possible.

    Bloodborne pathogens training can help employees to be aware of the risk and to use universal precautions by wearing proper PPE and following all established safety protocols. Without training employees may not be aware of the risks and that could lead to many people being at risk to be infected by a bloodborne pathogen that could have otherwise been avoided.
