Top Reasons to Choose TotalWorksTM & InfectaGuardTM Commercial Cleaning Services

OpenWorks offers TotalWorksTM, which combines a comprehensive disinfection process with advanced cleaning protocols and disinfection best-practices. It includes cleaning and disinfecting all high-touch areas recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the National Institute of Health (NIH) for infection control.

Why Choose TotalWorksTM Commercial Cleaning and Disinfecting

InfectaGuardTM for Deep Cleaning and Added Disinfection is our in-depth deep cleaning and disinfection service that gives you the peace of mind that your facility is disinfected with EPA-approved anti-microbial disinfectants to prevent the spread of germs that cause infections, such as influenza and COVID-19.

You can also opt for InfectaGuard+TM, to add biohazard cleaning and disinfection and a six-step decontamination process. If you have a confirmed case of coronavirus or another biohazard or virus outbreak, InfectaGuard+TM ensures your facility is thoroughly disinfected – even hard-to-reach surfaces that typically are not cleaned regularly.

InfectaGuard+TM also includes the application of a six-step protocol developed by the Global BioRisk Advisory Council (GBAC):

  • Incident Site-Risk Assessment - Quality Control
  • Forensic Cleaning, including the removal of biological contaminants
  • Pre-Disinfect
  • Load Reduction
  • Professional Disinfecting
  • Post-Site Assessment - Quality Control

OpenWorks uses broad-spectrum hard-surface disinfectants that have been proven to be effective against viruses, such as Human Coronavirus, SARS-associated Coronavirus, Porcine Respiratory & Reproductive Syndrome Virus (PRRSV), Rotavirus, and Rhinovirus Type 37.
